    Look for bubbles or blackend marks on it, sounds like it is the element, contact the store where you bought it for parts,I thats not possible and a service center (maybe SEARS) can do it,If you want to tackle it yourself parts should not be to bad to find,MCM electronics used to carry elements but I dont know for sure any more,Thanks if i can help more write back. ( check for bad connections, burnt wires before buying an element,disconnect element and check with an ohm meter)

The problem is with the ignitor that lights your oven...
You will have to replace it because it has burnt out.

Here is a tip that I wrote about this problem...

GE Profile Spectra Broiler not lighting

I'm not an expert, and I'm reading you're post while looking for a solution for our oven, so this is in no way should be taken as a suggested solution, it isn't!!! it is anyway: I think it might be a bad ignitor, I have replaced a couple on our stove and both times we had exactly the same symptoms you're experiencing, I think also we're in line for a third ignitor for this "less then 10 year old Magic Chef". Good luck
