Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

There is not a separate thermostat between bake and broil. If broil still works, there are no fuses or thermostats that will stop bake and not broil. That means you either have a bad bake element or a bad relay on your control board not sending power to the bake element. You'd need to pull the oven forward, and unplug it. Then open the oven door and remove the floor inside the oven. You can unscrew the bake element and remove it. Test continuity through the element with a multimeter or bring it into an appliance parts store and they can test it for you. If it doesn't have continuity, replace it. If it has continuity, you need a new main control board.
