Check the element with an OHM meter.
This is not rocket science and an OHM meter can be used for many things. Any good appliance parts place, even Wal-Mart will have a meter which can be set to test AC/DC, OHM's etc. Set the meter on OHM setting and touch the two leads on the meter together, you will see the meter arm move. This is simply a test for continuity. Now take the element out of the Range, touch one lead to one end of the element and the other lead to the other end. If you do not get any reading then there is a break inside the element and must be replaced. If you get any reading at all then the element is good and the eye switch must be replaced.
There are some parts which require knowing how many OHM's but in this case you just need to check for a break inside the element (continuity).
You can check an extension cord this way or set it on the volts setting and check batteries. all kinds of fun.
