Replece glass oven door kitchenaid kebs278dss8
Oven doors have at least two panes of glass (air gap between so little ones touching outer glass do not get burned). You remove the screws around edges of door (top, sides, & bottom) and lift frame up and forward to get outer face off. The glass in ovens is tempered to take heat so you can not just use regular glass. You will find outer piece is sometimes the entire size of door but is painted black with the "dot" pattern that lines up with inner piece. Once you get face / frame off you will usually find the handle screws and mounts for inner glass. Sometimes inner glass sealed with high temp sealant. But make sure you use correct glass or someone could get hurt.
Neither the oven or broil element comes on. No
If both broiling and baking element are not heating, then the most common fault causing the problem is a defective temperature probe.
The probe is located inside the oven cavity.
On most ovens there is only one temperature sensor, connected in line
on the circuit from electroning oven control to baking and broiling
When the probe fails, it will affect both baking and broiling function.
The temperature probe is tested reching the probe, cutting or disconnecting its wiring, and testing the probe at room temperature, with a multimeter set on impedance at Rx1. If the multimeter reads no continuity (circuit open), then the probe must be replaced.
If the temperature probe is good, then parts that may be responsible for the fault are oven electronic control and wiring. Having both elements failing at the same time would be rather unusual.

First start up
You're actually referring to the "broiler" elements. Most electric ovens have these at the top of the main oven space. (Some gas ovens are set up the same way, but many put the broiler elements in a bottom drawer.)
As their name implies, broiler elements are active only when you're broiling. They will not go on for baking.
Broiling is the process of cooking food by exposing it directly to a high heat source at close range. To broil a steak, for example, you would place the pan holding the steak on an oven rack raised to the top or next to top position in the oven (consult the manual) and set the oven to broil. The top elements will then turn on and cook the meat by direct radiation.
Most people, however, use ovens for baking far more often than for broiling. Baking is the process of cooking food (cakes, casseroles, roasts etc) by indirect heat. In other words you raise the oven to a certain temperature, put the food on a rack more in the middle of the oven, and let the surrounding heat cook it over time. When you bake the top broiler elements usually don't come on at all.
I hope this helps.
Oven won't ignite
If your oven is gas, you might need a new igniter. I had to replace mine about a year.
