I know it's frustrating when the oven stops working. From the information listed it appears the bake element # 316075104 is shorted and will need to be replaced. It should not have affected the broil element. If the broil element is not working, I would suspect the control may be damaged. A voltage check would need to be made to determine for sure.

If you would like to check this yourself and have a meter, first disconnect power to the range. Now remove the back console cover and you will have access to the control. Reconnect the power and set it to broil. With all wires still connected, check from BRL to L2 out, on the control. If there is no voltage there, the control # 316272201 will also need to be replaced. If there is 220 volts there the broil element # 316203200 may also need to be replaced. Before replacing it though, I suggest checking the wire connections on it, to see if one is loose. Be sure to disconnect the power, before pulling the broil element out, to check the connections. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, any additional details will be helpful and I will be glad to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

How do I replace the bake element in my range?

A:

I am assuming you have disconnected the electricity from the range. You need to work the element around until it slides out easily. The end of the element or the wire going to it might be wrapped around a wire in the rear of the oven. If you can’t get it to slide out easily you will need to slide the range out and remove the back panel. Whatever the element is caught on can be moved out of the way. Don’t force the element out you will damage something.

The element has a wire connected to each side. Use pliers when you disconnect the wires from the original element. Grasp the metal that is crimped on the wire and pull straight away from the element terminal. If you pull on the wire you might pull it out of the terminal.

The insulation is there to keep the heat from the oven in. If you get the element out push the insulation back through the hole.

Replacement parts don’t normally come with installation instructions. Technicians are trained to replace these parts and most homeowners don’t attempt to do it. That is why the owner’s manual doesn’t cover the repair.

If you need any other information send another question. Thank you for including the model number. It makes our jobs easier to know what you are working on.
