I would take a hard look at the receptacle wiring. It's possible you formerly had a NEMA 10 at that location (hot-hot-neutral) and someone hacked in a NEMA 14 improperly. Or you could have some other defect in the connection there. Or possibly back at the panel. It just needs a good general going-through - de-energize the circuit, take it all apart and ...

I would open up the receptacle box if possible to see what's going on, but the only way I can think that these readings would be plausible would be if the outlet neutral is not connected to a neutral conductor going back to the panel but is instead shorted to H1. That would produce the readings you've recorded. And if your old stove didn't use the neutral ...

Something is terribly, shockingly awry here. The only way you can get these measurements is if the line marked H1 and the line marked N are shorted together -- but normally, that'd trip the breaker. So, either you have an open neutral somewhere upstream of what's shorting H1 to N, or worse yet, you have a circuit breaker that is managing to not trip when ...

Many times the element(s) crack and burn up like what happened to you. There are replacement elements for most stoves you need to match the size. To replace unplug the stove and usually there are screws or slip on spade connectors (these spade connectors are special high temp ones) if one needs replaced don't use normal ones from the big box stores, unless ...
