SOURCE: Bottom element broken
There should be an element on the top, used for broiling, and then one on the bottom. If you look inside the oven carefully at this element and the top as well, should should be able to see a small blown out spot, or even a break.
If you do, turn off the range at the breaker box, and two screws should take it out. Take that and the model number of your stove to an appliance parts dealer. It won't be very expensive, although he may have to order it in for you.
If the above is not the case please write back.

If it is the main oven element, then undo the screws that secure the cover at the rear of the oven, remove cover, and you will see the round element there.
Undo screw securing element, and pull forward in to oven compartment.
Detach the wires, and fit new element.
Hope this helps you.
Please leave feedback.

It will be the element that has gone, and it is easy to replace.
Remove the cover at rear of oven compartment, and you will see the fan element, just undo fixing screw,and replace element.
