I have a fridgedaire electric glass top oven. The lower oven

Resolved Question:

I have a fridgedaire electric glass top oven. The lower oven element shorted out with aluminum foil, it kicked the circuit breaker and after resetting it, the stove eyes work fine, but the oven and the center digital touch pad are dead. Is that the module, or the element that is bad?

the element can short the display board out but there is no way the display board would be blank unless the board itself was bad. If the element looks find and isn't shorted out (check continuity if you have a multimeter on the elemnt and it should be between 10-50 ohms if it's good) then you need to replace your display control board which is about $200.
