Repairman1981 :

Have you measured the resistance of the bake element?

JACUSTOMER-kb18ee5d- :

I am a homeowner. No idea how to do that.

Repairman1981 :

You need to pull the bake element and meter it for resistance with an ohm meter ...... most likely if bake doesn't work but broil does, the element is your issue

Repairman1981 :

However there is ALWAYS a possibility that the relay board could be at fault

Repairman1981 :

best way to tell is meter the element
