Re: bottom element the clip that slide onto the spade...
Since the element gets extremely hot when in operation, you need clips that are very heat resistant, which can be obtained from the Original Equipment Manufacturer. As far as the model number, it usually a plate that the on the surface that the oven door contacts. If you provide the model number, an owner's manual can be obtained.
a 6ya Repairman can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

All I needed was a phillips screw driver, a small hex socket drive and an 8mm wrench.
1. Turn off the mains at the switch board. There might be a switch near the oven or stove too, turn that off as well. Check that the power is off!
2. Remove the screws holding the oven to the cupboards. Mine was held in by 4 timber screws on the edge.
3. Slide the oven out of the wall. I used a small table to support it.
4. Remove the hex drive screws that hold the top lid on.
5. Using a trusted multimeter CHECK THAT POWER IS OFF! There are now exposed power terminals.
6. Undo the supply power terminals and remove the cable. I taped mine up.
7. Remove the back cover - more hex screws.
8. Pull the spade terminals off the heater element.
8. Inside the oven remove the shelves and side racks. They pop off the wall. 9. Pull the rear fan shield towards you. It should pop out at the top and then lift off 2 small tabs.
10. Remove the phillips screw at the bottom of the heater element.
11. Remove the 2 spring clips.
12. The element can now slide down and towards you.
13. Replace the element and put it all back together in reverse order.
the bake element has failed. they can be had for around 20 dollars. Unplug unit before replacing the element. Usually will only need 1/4 inch nut driver to remove two screws inside oven and slide out element and unplug the spade connectors. The model and serial should be located behind the lower drawer on the left side. An appliance parts store should carry this in stock since many models utilize the same element. Hope this helps.
Test element for continuity first and if it has continuity you need to look elsewhere, possibly at they switch or thermostat as you said you shorted it out, let me know after you have done continuity and i will help you further if required, David "The Famous Forry"

number 1 unplug unit inspect the outlet which element plugs into you will see prongs that clip onto element make sure there not burnt thoes prongs are in ceremic caseings make sure they not broken or chiped causing a bad connection i hope that helps
if you feel through the insulation you can find the two wires that attach to the element pull them through to plug the element back on but there is no plug per say but first are you sure the element is good were there no wires on the element when you removed it should have been two spade connectors with wires on them attached to the element hold my rating till you reply
