The stove stopped heating in the oven. Tis an electric Kenmore.

Any pointers?

I was thinking that I should tear it apart and check for continuity in the heating element.

The broiler still heats....which may or may not matter, 'cuz if there are relays and other gizmos involved, I am assuming that each circuit would be totally separate (or enough separate that it wouldn't matter).

Fuses? If they are still using them on stoves. Next step voltmeter and work your way back from the element to the switch(s)

I pulled both elements.

The broiler (which works), reads 15-16 ohms. The oven reads 14 ohms....when you swap them, it still doesn't work.

It has juice to the the element.

The control panel is all digital push button...that is one of my suspects.

But, I am gonna pull the back of the stove off today.

check the automatic on off feature for timed cooking. on occasion it gets bumped or reset when cleaning and that will stop the manual on off operation.

Does this mean you are seeing 240V at the terminals of the element connector or socket? If yes, is the element plugged in or connected when you are taking this voltage reading?

I changed the control panel and it is still in use, months later.
