Turned on oven to bake and saw that the bake element on the bottom of the oven was not getting red hot. Broiler element is getting red hot. Disconnected bottom element and it shows 22 ohms at the terminals. Checked from each terminal to element and had no ohm reading. Checked each wire to ground. One shows 120 v and the other wire only 6 volts. What do u recommend could be my problem now?
Thanks in advance.

Well, after some investigation, I wound up fixing the problem myself. After turning the power off, I lifted up the range top and the pan underneath that. I followed the lead wire that gave my a 6v reading up to the control switch (the switch that turns the oven on bake, broil, timed, etc.) Come to find out that the wire had somehow come loose from the terminal in the back of the switch. It probably happened several days ago while I was cleaning the oven, range top, and the drip pan underneath. Glad I didn't call out a repair man and pay a bunch of cash......and endure the embarassment associated with that! Hope this helps the next homeowner that trys a DIY. Thanks.
