Have you checked the easy stuff first?
Did the parts store give you the correct parts for your model stove?
Are the prongs from the element fitting deeply and securely into the recepticle?
Are the wire connections secure to the recepticle?
It's usually the easy stuff that messes up the most. If all else is fine, check the condition of the wires that connect to the recepticle. If the recepticle got hot enough to burn a hole through it, the wires that connect to it may have overheated also.
