Shaffy, When baking only the bake element should heat. When broiling only the broil element (upper) should heat. Your oven is a Kitchenaid, you have a 5 year warranty on any electronic element or control board. You may have a temperature sensor that is not working right. The oven just might need to be calibrated, the instructions would be in your owners manual. Your bake element might be failing, it would have to be ohmed out. You also need to verify that the bake element is getting 240V. when turned on. Catriver...post back

You could very well have an Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board problem. There two separate circuits that control the oven BAKE and BROIL functions. If you have replaced the BAKE element, and have ensured it connected properly, the only other component that controls that function, is the EOC. If you post back with your complete model number, I can double check to make sure. The model number will be located on a nameplate somewhere around the oven door opening or lower drawer opening. The reason I need to confirm is because some ranges have a separate relay control board.

The bottom element has probably "blown" out. See if there is a small spot that looks like it exploded. It is similar to an extension cord getting warm and melting in a spot. The only answer is to obtain a new element.

All F3-E Codes - Oven Temperature Sensor (RTD) or Warming Drawer Defect - Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD).

F3-E2 Error indicates
a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is
bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it
should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door
appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should
be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
