I have a Kenmore Electric Range model 790.97453804. The oven

Customer Question

I have a Kenmore Electric Range model 790.97453804. The oven will rise in temp about 1 degree per minute. The broil function does not work. The stove top, lights, and display all function fine with no error codes. I have removed both elements and both work properly using an ohms meter. No wires appear to be burned or damaged.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: The stove came with the home which we purchased 6 years ago. Model number from the tag on the frame is 790.97453804. SN of VF94443278.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: This is the first time it has had any issues. In 10 minutes on bake, the temp has raised to 157 degrees F.

Can you turn the oven to bake and measure the voltage at the elements, looking for 240 VAC between the two wires at the elements?
