This may just be a bad bake element. Do you have a volt ohmmeter to test the element?

Appliance Technician: Webb-Guy, Handyman replied 6 months ago

ok so here is your bake element also there is a helpful video that will show you how to test this part as well if it makes you more comfortable to

test it first. If its not coming on I am certain the part has just went bad on you and is needing to be replaced.
