Baking element works fine, as do all of the stovetop elements. No indications of error codes on the display. Replaced broiler element, still no joy. When broil is selected, one light (broil) comes on, but not the Preheat light. I can hear the relay click for the preheat, but... Nothing. Left it on for an hour, still no heat. Do I need to replace the CLOCK W/OVERLAY unit?

Re: PER5710BAW Broiler element does not work
I recently had this problem with a jenn air stove. Only it was the bake function. The bake element had actually failed and required replacement however, after replacement, it still would not bake. I tried the short cut and replaced the temp switch on hope alone...no joy. Finally, I replaced the clock....it now works like a champ. I was able to save myself $100 by purchasing the part on-line but, I had to go through two of them before I finally got a good unit.

Does the oven indicator light come on when you turn the oven on? Does the baking element or the broil element work by themselves but just don't work together? If nothing at all works did they stop working at the same time? Need to know to troubleshoot. Please reply with more info.
Before you replace the range, I'd try replacing the oven temp sensor (part number
WB21T10007 ) which is rather inexpensive. If I were able to get my hands on your range I'd first test to see if the control is sending 240 volts to the bake element. We know there is 240 to the range because the burners and broiler work, but is the control sending the full 240 to the bake element ? The only way for you to know this is to use a meter and test the voltage across the terminals of the bake element when in bake. Of course you should also test the bake element with power off and at least one terminal disconnected to see if you have about 20 ohms resistance across the terminals and no resistance from a terminal to the frame of the range. If not, you may need a new bake element (part number
