A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Generally speaking, when a bake element shorts out, it will take out the electronic oven control but nothing else.

If the surface elements are not heating; I suspect the range is not getting the proper voltage of 220 volts. The oven light and the surface indicator lights operate on 110 volts but the oven elements and surface elements require 220 volts. The range is likely missing the line 2 (L2) voltage supply. The voltage supply should be measured across the two outside terminals at the terminal block where the power cord is attached. NOTE: I do not recommend measuring the voltage supply unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I suggest calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range. The bake element shorting and burning out would not prevent the surface burners from heating unless the range is not getting 220 volts or if there is loose or burnt wire connection supplying the voltage to all the surface burner switches.

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 .
