Question about Hotpoint RA520 Electric Kitchen Range
Some times s**t happens. The most likely situation is the wire connections that connect the heater have burnt off, or simply just become disconnected.
the normal repair or replacement to the lower heater element would be to disconnect the wires from the heating element by sliding the wire off of the spade connector. Some times they are connected by a screw and nut terminal. Next to remove the screws from inside the oven, and then pull the element out from the back wall. I can see how you could easily interpret that they would slide out like many stove top elements.
In your situation confirm that power is off.
Remove back panel and check terminal' connections to the heating element. repair.

Thanks for the reply.
OK... I know this sounds odd and all... but all of the components (elements in the oven specifically) have to be installed and working correctly for the oven to operate properly.
Most people don't know this, but even when the oven is turned off and sitting there peacefully waiting for something to cook, there is STILL 120 Volts at one of the terminals on the element. Know what that means? That means that it is constantly (always) powered up! It also means that it is a necessary component involved in applying 220 volts to all the OTHER (cook top burners anyone?) components.
So... to take care of this and to bring you oven (and cook top) back to life, ya gotta go get yourself a new element and install it. OK?
Do you have the model number? If you do, give it to me and I'll look up the part number for you, deal?
