The only way to really test the element is to pull the oven forward and unplug it. Remove all the screws going into the back sheet metal panel and remove the back sheet metal panel. You'll see some wires going down to the bake element below the oven cavity coming out the back. Disconnect the wires and test continuity through the element. If it has no continuity, replace the element---otherwise if broil still works, there are no fuses or cut outs that will stop bake and not broil so you have a bad control board.
