Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful

About a year ago the upper bake element went out in our may tag Gemini mer6751aaw. We procrastinated replacing it using the bottom oven instead. Lst week the bottom bake element went out. With kids and stuff ending up on the bake elements from time to time (baked pizza cutter???) we assumed they gave up the ghost due to use and abuse. The unit is about 8 years old. I saw a reference in the questions to swapping some wiring to test the relays, but it was a slightly different model and wanted to ask the next suggested step before just replacing the control board due to cost. We just ordered both bake elements assuming (yes... I know about assuming) they were aged out.

ANSWER Hello Cam. If you replace both elements, and they still do not work, then it sounds like the control will need to be replaced. You can test for power from the control to the element. If it is there, the control is good. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
