The link Barbara H sent has good information about the problem you are having.

The most likely reason the bake and broil elements would stop working is a broken wire or a bad relay on the clock.

You can disconnect power to the range and remove the rear panel to inspect the wiring to the bake and broil elements. Testing the relay on the clock requires a volt meter. If you want to test the relay on the clock reply and I will send you the wiring schematic.

A:

On that burner that sparked, it is likely that that the contact in that switch that controls voltage going to the Element On light has failed. The wiring diagram in the image below shows that circuit highlighted in red. I recommend that you unplug the range and access the burner switch as shown in this video: Video: Range Burner Switch Replacement . You don't have to pull the knob off of that switch yet. If you access the back of that switch in the console, you can pull wire off of the "P" contact and tape the end of that wire with a piece of electrical tape to prevent it from shorting against the metal cabinet. Briefly plug the range back in and see if the element on light goes out. If it does, then that burner switch will need to be replaced (as shown in the above video). You can order that switch from the Sears PartsDirect website. The small element uses switch part 316436000. The large element uses switch part 316436001. If the light stays on after disconnecting that wire then you can use the same procedure in a process of elimination to determine the failed burner switch.

This information should help you fix this problem. If you need more help, reply with additional details.

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 .
