Question about Ovens
Whats wrong with my oven and can I order an baking element and install it myself?
Get me the exact model number and I'll provide you a part number and the correct pricing info. That's way out of line, that part is probably less than $130.00 and is easy to replace yourself.

does the bake element come on at all?
if so, try the oven out. do a bake @ 350 allow it to pre-heat, and see if once the pre-heat is comlete, id the broil shuts off.
on many ovens at the beginning of the cycle during pre-heat both bake and broil elements are powered.
other than that it may be a control board, or a burnt and crossed wire in the harness.

You probably know this, but on an oven unit there has to be two different phases of 120 to make it work. Check the wires that attach to the oven unit to make sure that you have 240 when in oven mode. If you have only 120, find out which wire is not hot and trace it to its source. Is it miswired at the other end? Is it shorted to one of the broiler wires? Usually there is a schematic to show how the oven is wired. Check for anything that is common to both oven and broiler wires and make sure the wires are on the right terminals. With out seeing the sove it is hard to know what it going on. Hope that helps. Robin

SOURCE: Have a Frigidaire 30 inch
likely the problem with you oven is an open thermal fuse on the back of
the oven. You have to remove the oven from the cabinet and remove the
back cover from the oven to access the part.
I think the part number is AP3008987
