|Ran into the same problem with my KitchenAid Superba Range (Model # KERC507HBS3). The hidden bake element burned through, frying the circuit's inline fuse camouflaged under the black shrink wrap.
I hated the design of a one-time-only fuse solution and am in the process of ordering new high temp wire (wire insulation on the L2 ring terminal end was baked and ring itself had thermal oxidation), temp-rated connectors, and a temp-rated inline fuse holder. I was going the Radio Shack parts route, but the obvious damage to the wire told me that a bit of thermal insurance may pay off down the line.
