Hello, anyone has the service manual for JHP62V0K2WH Range/Microwave Oven dating back to 1987. Broil element works, but Bake element is dead cold. Element has no sign of burns/welded. Haven't opened the unit yet.

Element has no sign of burns/welded.
They don't always show signs of bubbling or welding when they go out. Unplug the range and check for 22 Ω with a meter. It's more common for a wire to burn off the element end. If the element checks good restore power and access the thermostat and selector switch. Set the machine to bake about 300° and take the following AC voltage measurements.

#1 on t-stat to K on the selector switch =220 VAC
#2 on t-stat to D on selector switch = 220 VAC
#2 on t-stat to C or COM on the latch switch = 220 VAC
