If you know that the element is not working and the element is new then you need to use an electrical meter to trace down the power and see where it is stopping at...
My feeling is that you have a bad relay and that is your problem.
The power goes through the relays or contactors to get to the elements... the contacts will burn after a while and then the power will not flow through properly.... or at all.
Check the relays with an electrical meter and make sure that the power is coming in and going out of them...be careful to check and make sure that you haev240 v across the element ends and not just 120v...they will not heat on 120...
Remember that you can have 120v power there but you need to have the other leg and get 240v there for them to work...
