I have an electric oven which will not work. The top burner

Customer Question

I have an electric oven which will not work. The top burner are fine. The broiler, oven and cleaning procedure will not work. It goes on, I set it to a temperature , it appears to try for about 10 sec. Then shuts off. I checked the oven element and found not continuity, replaced that and it has not changed. How deep a problem could this be? Or how simple?
