Question about Kenmore Ovens
It very well could be the thermal fuse for the element. What I would do is pull the stove out where you can get to the wires to the bottom element and see if you have power to the element which you probably dont but check it anyways. I would then trace the wires from the element back to where ever they go checking everything may be a wire broke but you wont know until you pull thestove out and start checking.

That rod sticking out is the thermostat on the oven and it basically controls how hot the elements get and so if it is broken, then the elements won't heat. If you test it with an ohm meter it should have a low resistance, under 100 ohms generally, if it tests to over infinity or is over 1000 ohms, then it is bad and needs to be replaced. You can find a new one on www.repairclinic.com for cheaper than a store if time isn't an issue. These generally go out before the elements do. Let me know how this turns out.

You would need a volt meter to check for 240 volts across your bottom element terminals, where the electrical connections hook-up to it. If no 240 volts, then the problem is you electronic control board is bad as well.

Else,try replacing the bottom element element for your model

First, find your breaker. Turn it off and then back on. If this does not work I will need the model number to make a real diagnosis.

Do you have the old style 'infinite' switch on the front panel or the new electronic control? If it's the old style, the infinite switch is bad and you will need to replace it. If it's the new electronic style, than that has a oven control module and heat sensors. I won't go into since you didn't mention any 'fault codes' or anything. It sounds like you just need a good old fashion 'infinite switch for the oven elemenet.
