Hi. I believe this info. may assist you in getting your bake and broil up and running:
When your heating element burns out, you have to replace it because they are not repairable. If, when the heating element burns out, the infinite switch that controls it also fails, you have to replace it too.

SOURCE: baking element not working
If you have already replaced the bake element (which would have been MY first logical choice) and it still does not work, the problem is more likely with the Electronic Clock Control. The control has two separate circuits that will select and turn on either the bake of the broil elements. It is usually a defective relay that causes the particular mode of choice to stop working. The part number for the ECC is 1166040 and costs about $128. It's not a cheap fix, but it would cost you much more if you had a service man fix it for you. Unless...of course, you still have a warranty. Most manufacturers cover all parts from defects for the 1st year. Some parts are covered longer than the initial warranty, however. It may be worth you while to double check your purchase date and appliance paperwork. This repair is not difficult and can be accomplished by the average do-it-yourselfer. If you decide you want to repair the appliance on your own, let me know and I can give you step-by-step instructions on how to do it.
PS Double check the wiring from the ECC to the bake element as well. You could have a broken wire causing the same symptoms too. Also, don't be alarmed by the failure of the ECC. Although they are generally reliable for quite a number of years, they have been known to fail during electrical storms and/or power surges. Something else you may consider: check your home owner's insurance policy to see if it covers the loss of appliances in the event of such incidents. I hope you find this information helpful.

SOURCE: Oven does not heat up
It could be a bake element or an oven control problem. If you have a volt meter, remove the back of the oven and test the voltage across the bake element terminals while it is on. You should have 240 volts. If it is less than that, you have a control problem. If you have no way to check the voltage, replace the element and try it. It is the cheaper part to replace if you want to try something. Post back if you need to know how to change it or need further guidence.

I'm just guessing here...
Heating elements are high resistance. If the foil fell on the element near where it inserts into its socket it could have short circuited the element. If there's a fuse in the heating element wiring it could have blown. I could not find an electrical diagram for this stove so I don't know if it has a fuse or not.
Also, depending on the wiring your thermostat or selector switch may have been damaged. Does the broiler still work?
Let us know what you find.

oh bleep, right? well, if you're lucky this will get you going again. 1. disconnect power to range. 2. remove back metal cover just above range power cord (usually 5 quarter inch hex screws) 3. look for burnt off wire leading to/from bake element. If yes, 4. strip ends of broken wire and splice with ceramic wire nut if no 4. bad news. replace ERC (electronic range control) you fried something on the board. It's got the clock display and all the electronics behind it.
