Make sure the power is off, then there should be two screws holding the element to the back wall remove them. Pull the element out until you can get to the wires, sometimes a wire will burn off at the connector, if that's the case replace it with a high temp connector if not disconnect both wires and do a continuity check on the element
check the contact points on the rear of the element they burn off after years of use, if the contacts are still good, Look at the element itself for any white marks on the element, if you see any , the element itself has probably burned out and need replacing , to get to the contacts,, depending on the oven, remove the back they should be right in sight , if you do need to replace the fittings on the wire ends, be sure and get heat range connectors
Sounds like you need an bake element ignitor if the bake doesn't work but if the broil also doesn't work, it could be the electronic clock/timer control. the part number for the bake ignitor is 8054129 .Best off to call a reliable service company such as Sears.

It could be that your lower element is burnt out or ready to
burn out. They last 3-5 years depending how much you use your
Disconnect POWER to the stove, remove the screws holding the lower element to
the back of the inside of the stove, pull out carefully and remove the 2 screws
holding the wires on. Check the element with an ohm meter, it should read
0 (zero or very close) resistance on an ohm meter. You may also take it
to a store that sells replacements ($25) and they may check it for you.
The heating element is the likely culprit as they burn out and go open circuit..(ie ...disconnected and will not heat up ) If you can use a multi-meter , then the element can be tested using the resistance range (with the oven SWITCHED OFF )
