Try unplugging the oven and let sit for 10 min. This will reset the curcuit board and reboot the electronics. You may have to pull out the stove o get to the cord.

SOURCE: bake element does not heat up
This would be a good candidate, but not necessarily an absolute. Selector switches, loose wires, fuses, and a few other sundries could also be the cuprit. Make sure that the new element that was installed is the correct one for your model. I am assuming that the element was replaced?
If not, by all means, check the element. Elements only last a few years. Just because the plug it plugs into has current, it doesn't mean that the element itself is any good. By far, a burned out element is the most common, easily fixed failures.
Unplug or shut the appliance off at the breaker. Pull the element and visually examine for burnt or rough spots. The elements either pull directly from the housing, or are held in place with a few screws. Bad elements sometimes look totally normal.
If the bottom and top elements are the same( they usually are) a simple check would be taking out the broiler element and then swapping for the bake element. If the broiler element works in the bake position, buy a new element and ask for a refund for the service call.
I can't understand why the service person did not pull the unit and check voltage in the control before making an absolute diagnosis. The circuit board is usually well over 100.00. The unit also sometimes comes with a diagnostic feature that homeowners/techs can use to test the "ERC" without even taking it out of the range.
If you have your owners manual, check the trouble shoot section. If not, Sears has some manuals and repair help/parts online, and Whirlpool is among the best companies in terms of customer supports. I don't know your model, so I can't be too specific with advice. The link for Whirpool has a search engine you can use for your exact model. This link is for most newer models. Among other online resources, Repair Clinic" has parts that you can order online, and they also have diagrams that can help out significantly if you do change the unit out yourself. If it is something cheap like an element, it is helpful to go to an appliance store where you can return the unit a little easier. Thanks for your question, please leave comments if you need further advice.

We had the same thing happen and now they came and said it was the clock that needs to be replaced. They said that controls the oven. Even though clock is on and working the function for turning on the oven is not
