mcs130 bake element not heating, gettting red. removed element ck'd resistance , 26.1 ohms is this correct? if so what todo next/
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Does the oven still heat on broil? And yes 26 ohms means the element is good.

ok then if your element is good that means that your relay control board is shorted. There are no fuses or thermostats in this unit that will cut power to the bake element but not to the broil element. So if you bake element is good and the broil still works, that leaves only the relay control board. You'll need to replace the relay board to fix your problem and the part is normally about $250-300.
