Linda, I am sending an image with instructions for removing the clock from your range. Be sure to disconnect the power to the range before removing the rear panel.

Pretty sure it's the clock. How do I remove the clock ? Not sure what screws to remove.

Thanks!

Linda, it is very unusual for both elements to fail at the same time. There is a common wire that runs from the back of the clock to both elements. If this wire breaks neither element will heat. I would disconnect the power to the range and pull it away from the wall. Remove the panels on the back of the range to expose the wiring to the clock and the elements. Inspect each wire from the elements to the clock. You might find the problem there. If the wires are ok and both elements stopped working at the same time, I would replace the clock. If one element stopped working and some time later the other element stopped working, the problem might be in the elements. When you are looking at the back of the clock, you can remove the screws that mount it and replace it. I hope this helps.

Is it unusual for both elements to fail or are they connected? Do you think I should order the circuit board? If I do order the board, will it come with instruction on how to install it? What is the level of difficulty? Thanks Jimmy!

Linda, the electronic oven control is a circuit board. It is the clock that turns the oven on and off. The part number of the clock is 316272200, and the price is $207.02. You can order the clock at [Parts Direct | partsdirect.com?sid=MMLxexpertxmerch]

To check the elements, you need to disconnect the power to the range. Remove the 2 screws holding the bake and broil elements to the back wall of the oven. Carefully pull the elements inside the oven and remove one wire from each element.

Measure the resistance of each element. The elements should measure 20-60 ohms if they are good.

If both elements are ok, the problem is in the electronic oven control (clock).

If you have questions, reply on this thread and I will be glad to help.

The oven not working can be concerning. It's it nice to be able to bake and broil. I did some research on managemylife.com. I am adding a link below to help you with your question while you wait for your expert response.
