I don't know if this will help but I've had to replace heating elements a few times and once it didn't work after replacing the element. It turns out the short also caused one of my electrical wires connecting to the element to burn out as well. This may not be your same deal but make sure you check the wiring. You can also try using a voltage meter or tester to see if power is going to the replaced element. -hope this helps
It sounds like your element is electric. When food drips on that element it can cause a heat spot on the insulation around the electric element and eventually burns through. You can easily replace that element for about $50 - $60. It requires about three hand tools and 15 minutes to remove old one and install a new one. You should be in business for another 14 years if you clean any drippings on the element itself.

element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the
bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has
an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last
for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
first unplug unit,then there should be two screws inside oven cavity where element leads exit rear of cavity to termination wire,take out screws pull element gentally toward you unscrew terminals &reverse procedure,some units may dis-assemble from rear so you may ned to access terms from rear w/cover on back removed
If the element only works partially or not getting red hot at the
"Hi" setting, the problem might be with a burned out receptacle that
the element plugs into. If this is the case, replace both the
element and the receptacle.
You can usually tell when the element itself burns out. It might
have small holes or bubbles on the coil. Replace the element, if
