***** Can you see the bake element turn red?
Gotcha. What I do is put it in bake, open the door and put my hand on the bottom of the oven right away before it gets to hot to touch and feel if it starts to heat. Might try that.
I'm taken it that the unit is still to hot to touch. You will need to wait until everything cools down until you can do anything at this point. Your boil works with the bake element to cook thing properly. If your bake element is out your broil will get you to 350 but it will take a long time and it won't cook properly. So let wait until it cools down.
Mean while, Do you have a electrical multi meter?
Has the unit cooled down yet?
Are you still needing help?
Your bake element is likely bad or burned out and will need to be replaced.
