Are you comfortable with some light-moderate disassembly to inspect the wiring at the switches and the elements? Something is shorted.

I am, but I just had surgery my shoulder, so right now I onlt\y have 1 hand to use
Expert:  Kelly replied 10 months ago.

Yoou will need 2 arms because the top will need to be raised. I would wait until you have help or are better or you risk injuring yourself or breaking the glass top.

Just a Phillips screwdriver and possibly a 1/4" nut driver.

My shoulder is ok to continue now
Expert:  Kelly replied 9 months ago.

I believe the screws are either 1/4" hex head or maybe a Phillips head. Open the door and the screws are at the top of the oven opening, securing the top in the front. Once removed, the top should hinge up.

Expert:  Kelly replied 9 months ago.

Hmm, that all looks okay. Can you do the same with the switch area, looking for any sign of issues with the wiring?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
what do I need to do now?
Expert:  Kelly replied 9 months ago.

If all looks good, you will need to do some testing with an electrical meter to determine where the fault lies. You may want to call for service at this point unless you are very familiar with electrical circuits and testing.
