Get a multimeter and test the resistance of the element and ohms, be sure to turn off the power first, take the element loose, and ohm it out, and check the resistance of the element. Most multimeters have a continuity setting, and try that and see if the element has continuity. if it doesnt, chances are that that is your bad element

Oven not heating!

Hi Michelle,
I understand you are having trouble with your oven not heating. Based on the little bit of information provided I could suggest the following. If you are having problems with the individual bake or broil then it is likely that the single element is the problem. However, if you find that neither element is heating then electrical connection could be causing the oven to not heat.

Best Regards,

The best way for you to check is to swap with other element since they use the same one. FRIST turn the breaker off! Then take out the 2 screws on the element. The wires unplug, make sure they don't go back in the holes or the oven may have to come out to find them. You can pull the element out and take it to a parts house to see if they can check it with a ohm meter for you if you don't want to pull both of them out.
