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

No fuse will cause just the bottom element to not work but allow the broil element to continue working. All thermostats/fuses cut power to both broil and bake. That means that most likely the bake element has just failed and needs to be replaced. The only other possibility would be a broken wire between the element and the display control board, or a bad relay on the control board itself. If you had a multimeter you can pull the oven out and remove the back sheet metal panel. Then turn the oven onto bake and test power between the 2 wires where they connect to the bake element. If you have 220 volts, that confirms the bake element has failed and needs to be replaced.

To order a new element you'll need the model number which is located on a flip up metal tab on the back of the control panel for these Gemini units.
