Locate Your Bake Element
The bake element is located on the inside, bottom of your oven.

Unplug your oven, stove, range or turn off power source before attempting any repair or maintenance to avoid risk of electrical shock.
To remove the bake element open the oven door, remove the oven racks, remove the screws that hold the element in place.

Testing Your Bake Element

Unplug your oven, stove, range or turn off power source to avoid risk of electrical shock.
Remove the bake element your oven.
Look to see if the element is damaged or blistering. If it is, then the bake element is bad and needs to be replaced. If it looks fine, continue by testing for continuity with a multimeter.
Set your multimeter to the lowest setting for Ohms of resistance. When using an analog multimeter, calibrate the meter by holding the probes together while adjusting the needle to read 0.
Touch one meter probe to one element terminal, while you touch the other probe to the other terminal.
If the element is still operational, the multimeter should show a reading of 19 to 115 ohms of resistance. These numbers are approximate. To get exact specs for your appliance, refer to your service manual.
If there is little or no change in the multimeter reading, then your bake element has burned out and will need to be replaced.
