HELLO, Hasyour bake or broil element blown up like a roman candle, or did it juststop working? Just relax, don't call the fire department - unless itson fire, and if it is, what are you doing surfing the internet at atime like this?
Caution: Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs.
Before testing the oven heating element or broiler element, unplug the appliance or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
Ifyour oven does not heat, does not heat enough or does not broil, acommon cause is a burned out heating element. There are two elements,the baking element on the floor of the oven and the broiling element onthe ceiling of the oven. They are about the diameter of a pencil andtypically supported by metal stand-offs.
Thiseasiest test you can do is to turn on the oven and observe the heatingelement. If it glows red, the element is working. When baking, thebroiling element may come on to assist with preheating or to maintainthe oven temperature. When set to bake, if the broiler comes on, butthe baking element does not, the likely cause is a burned out bakingelement.
When set to broil, the broil elementshould glow red, but the bake element typically is not used. If thebroiler does not glow, it is likely a burned out heating element.
There are other possible causes of these symptoms, refer to our diagnostic page for some other possibilities.
To test the heating element using a multimeter, follow the steps provided below.

Hi,i think the problem is from the oven sensor of the unit,it needs to be replaced,however,you have to take the cooker apart for you to be able to do this,here is how you go about it;
Pull out the bottom utility drawer and set it out of the way. Reach inside the drawer cavity and unplug the oven power cord from the electrical outlet.
2.Open the oven door and remove both cooking racks. Locate the oven sensor on the upper right side of the rear panel. The sensor will look like a long thin metal tube.
3.Remove the two screws securing the oven sensor to the rear oven wall with a nut driver. Slowly pull the oven sensor away from the rear wall until the wire harness is accessible.
4.Pull the wire harness off the end of the oven sensor and tape it to the rear wall to prevent it from slipping behind the wall cavity.
5.Take the oven sensor to an appliance repair facility to purchase a replacement. Connect the oven wiring harness to the oven sensor wire block. The harness will only attach one way and you push the two together until the tabs lock. 6.nsert the wire end of the oven sensor into the rear wall until the oven sensor mount plate is flush against the wall. Secure the oven sensor to the rear wall with the retaining screws 7.Place the cooking racks back inside the oven and close the oven door. Reach inside the drawer cavity and plug the power cord back into the outlet. Place the utility drawer back under the oven.
