The wiring diagram for your range is shown in the image below with the circuits through the bake and broil elements traced in colors. You indicated that you measured 240 volts being applied to those elements. I am curious about the procedure that you used to check that voltage. If you properly measured that voltage directly at the elements and they have 26 and 27 ohms of resistance, then they should be heating. If you measured 120 volts at a time from each leg and did not isolate the leg being checked from the opposing leg, then you could have just been measuring the same leg of voltage during each test. If you measured the 240 volts directly at the spades on the control board, then you will probably need to check the continuity through those circuits from the control board (with the range unplugged ). NOTE: Follow electrical safety guidelines when performing this repair. Unplug the range when accessing internal components. Use extreme caution when making live voltage checks. Wear proper safety equipment (electrical safety gloves and safety goggles) when checking live voltage. Unplug the range as soon as live testing is completed .

If hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.
