Hi my name is Tim, I will try and help you with your issue. Can you please post the complete model number of your unit, it is found on a metal swing out tag attached to the rear of the control panel, thank you.

Expert:  Tim Alan replied 5 years ago.
Ok thank you, do you have a volt ohm meter to check power to the element? Is it just the element that popped that is not powering up? The power supplied to the element is controlled by the electronic control and if the element shorted or blew it very well could have taken out the actual control. If you can check for power to the element it should have 240 volts to it.

I'm checking to see if there is power to the wires...There is no power to the ohm meter. Now what?
Expert:  Tim Alan replied 5 years ago.
No power to the lower element is that correct, do you have power to all the other elements ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Yes the upper element oven works and the stove top works
Expert:  Tim Alan replied 5 years ago.
Ok the electronic control is bad that is what powers up the element, when a element shorts out like that it often does take out the control also, the repair is to replace the control.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Is the control in the upper part of the stove so to get to it you have to take off the rear panel?

 

Expert:  Tim Alan replied 5 years ago.

PART NUMBER: 74009993 you will need this to it's the overlay for the buttons on the front of the control

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
The buttons on the front panel all work shows the oven is on and the lights work. do i need the second part for the overlay?
Expert:  Tim Alan replied 5 years ago.
The overlay is just a plastic sticky cover that you may be able to peel off and reuse but most of the time it does not come off.
