Why wont my oven work after a fuse was blown in my home?
There isn't more information listed about the brand and type, so I'll give you a couple of options that could be a problem. In most newer ovens, the burner is lit by a ceramic heating element that glows when the oven is about to come on. If it is cracked (coincidental from blowing the fuse, not related unless the fuse blew during an earthquake or when the oven was on), the circuit won't turn on the gas or make any noise. It may also have been getting old and weak, and if the oven was moved to troubleshoot the problem, it might fail from the movement. They do go bad eventually. You should order a spare online if you can find the part number because if you have to buy it from the appliance store at a moment's notice, you will pay a LOT more for it.
That's the most likely thing and easiest to fix. The next guess is that the oven switch itself (controller board if electronic) could have been fried by whatever blew the fuse (power surge, lightning etc).
