Hi, Unplug the oven and remove the element to test it. Check the element and see if there is continuity. If the element is open, replace it. It can be bad even tho it doesn't appear bad.
I hope this helps you.

Most likely a bad element. Turn off the power to the oven. Remove the racks.
Use a phillips screwdriver or 1/4 inch nut driver to remove the mounting screws at the back of the oven cavity to remove the element. Carefully pull the element out and remove the wires. Do not let the wires fall back into the holes.
Use a volt meter set for continuity. Touch one meter lead to one terminal on the element. Touch the other meter lead to the other terminal. If you get NO reading the element is bad.
A new element will correct your problem.
If the element reads as good you have a wiring problem or a bad control.

it could either be a hot spot in the element where it can no longer pass all the current needed for proper operation in heating(look for a discolored spot on it,it may be whitish and dimpled from heat) or secondly,it could be the oven thermocouple located on the inside top of the oven cavity
