2. Damaged Wires

If your Roper oven element still won’t work still after replacing it, you should check the wires next. Remove the oven’s lower rear access panel. Inspect the wires connected to the terminals of the bake element. If the wires appear to be burnt or damaged in any way, they may be the cause of the problem. Contact a technician to fix or replace the wires.

3. Control Board

This is the final possible reason why your Roper oven element won’t work. The control board sends voltage to the bake element. So, if it fails, the element won’t receive voltage to operate.
