Question about Kitchen Ranges
I'm not sure how your range is configured, because I've never heard of the Brand name before. However, most electric ranges have an Electronic Oven Control (EOC) Board that controls all the oven functions. There's usually a separate relay on the board for Bake and Broil. The indicator light could be an indication that the relay is working, but I'm not sure.
As far as the element is concerned, it does not have to look bad in order to have a problem. You should be able to access the terminals of the element in question by removing the back panel of the range. Make sure you UNPLUG the range before attempting any repairs. There is live voltage present a the terminals even with the range turned off. That's why it is important to either unplug or turn off the main breaker. A resistance check at the terminals should indicate a fairly low resistance. This reading varies with different models. Again, I'm not sure what yours would be. This can range from a few ohms to a few hundred ohms depending on the type material used in the manufacturing of the element. Your best bet is the use the continuity function on your meter to see if the element has the proper continuity. If it doesn't, replace it.
I have a couple of links you can try to assist you as well. The first link describes how to replace elements in MOST electric ranges:
The second link explains how to test and/or replace the oven temperature probe (sensor):
I hope some of this is helpful to you.
