Its an electric range, believe your lower element is either bad or wire to it burned off or the thermostat or control to it are bad. 
FYI the Broil element is upper and lower element is bake. Just so we are on the same page. Sorry if you already knew this.

The most common thing is a bad lower element where food has "boiled oveer" and got on the lower element causing a cold/hot spot and thus burns it out prematurly. 
Shut off breaker, no power to unit, remove lower element. Inspect wires in back of element if tight and connected, keep wire ends out and test for voltage (usually 220-240 VAC) on the wires. No voltage here then the problem is above at the thermostat or operation selector switch or wiring or a safety  control and may even be in the clock timmer. If you have power there all these items are ok and again go to the element power off. Remove 1 wire which one dosnt matter. test for continuity of the element. It will proably read HIGH or infinity. My guess is anything over 30 to 70 ohms the element is bad.. the part number used to be located someplace on the element. Keep it together and un bent as much as possible becaused you may have to use the measuremants to secure a part number of  a generic element. 
Hope this helps. If so please grade me accordingly and good luck.

My broiler and range work but my "bake" option will not produce any heat??? Please help!!!


If this is an electric range, it sounds like you have a bad bake element in the oven. The broiler and bake features each have their own heating element. Thats why the broiler still works. The following link explains how to replace a heating element in an electric range:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r469407-replacing_bake_or_broil_element_in

If the model range you have this question listed under is correct, the part number for a replacement element is WB44K5012. It lists for about $25 at pcappliancerepair.com.

If you have questions, or if the model number is not correct, please post back with your information so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance.. I hope you find this information helpful.

My stove will not heat using bake but will work for broiler so I know it is not a heating problem. Help!


this model is not a dual fuel, and you do have a heating problem, there are two burners, a bake burner and a broil burner, both have ignitors. You have a bad bake ignitor.

Oven and broiler will not heat elements have continuity when oven was turned on heard a pop after that the problem started


do you have voltage? you have to have 240 volts if you only have 120 this might happen check your breaker. does your bake element work? if neither bake or broil work always check the breaker first and let me know

Oven will not work unless range is lit


You probably have a neutral return that is open. By turning on the stove top you are completing the path of return for the bake element. Work back from the element (unplug the oven first!!!) and check continuity back to the plug. Again, make sure you unplug the darn thing from the AC outlet!

Good luck!

You probably need to replace the baking igniter, (Igniter,bake burner
Part Number: AP4102011 made by MAYTAG).

I tested the igniter function by (CAREFULLY) jerryrigging a bridge to wire the BAKE igniter to the BROILER controls.(Push/click plugs accessible by opening up the stove back) Testing thebroiler controls this way the bake element remained cold. I then did the same test but connected the BROILER igniter to the BAKE controls and got a good glow. This indicates that the controls work but the Bake igniter's faulty!

You can access the bake igniter by removal of 2 screws at the front at the platform just inside the top oven. The broil and bake igniters appear to be identical but the push/click plugs are reversed at the back of the stove. (hence the CAREFUL jerry rigged wiring bridge.)The parts and wiring are pretty simple and visual once you get thecovers off. Opening up the stove back is just a matter of removingseveral screws. UNPLUG the stove before you work. If you test as Idescribed, make all connections while UNPLUGGED and then plug it inonly for the brief test. Unplug again while disconnecting/reconnecting.Hope this helps.
