unpluged unit took out bake element tested element with VOM,reading showed element to be ok. reinstalled element took back off the stove to expose the timer control for inspection and found the High voltage switch points on the bake control to be burnt off.ordered new timer control reversed the dismanteling process to color code on the wiring was different,but I knew white is always nuetral,and black or red can be line,my yellow was bake which was the same in the diagram so my blue for broil had to be purple shown in the diagram.just a shame you can't buy the bake switch separate. Everything is working great !
