THE POWER WHEN OUT FOR A MINUTE AND WHEN I WENT TO USE THE OVEN IT WOULD NOT WORK. NITHER THE BAKE OR BROIL ELEMENTS INSIDE THE OVEN WORK, I CAN SET THE OVEN TO A TEMP AND I CAN HEAR IT CLICK BUT DOES NOT HEAT UP AT ALL, I CAN HOLD ON TO THE BURNERS. THE CLOCK AND ALL FOUR OF THE TOP BURNERS WORK FINE. I'VE CHECKED THE POWER SUPPLY AT THE BACK OF THE OVEN WHERE THE WIRES CONNECT TO THE BURNERS AND I SHOW 115 VOLTS AT EACH SIDE. IS IT POSSIBLY THAT BOTH BAKE AND BROIL BURNERS WENT OUT AT THE SAME TIME?
Re: TOP BURNERS WORK BUT OVEN DOES NOT WORK AT ALL.
Sounds like a heating element. Same thing happend to my oven. You can find them around 50-60 dollars. Veryy easy to install, just remove a couple of screws and remove old element and put in new one. Make sure you shut off power to oven firstg of course.

The bake element
is the heating element that is found at the bottom of the oven. Most electric ovens use both the bake element and the broil element in a bake cycle, with the bake element performing 90% of the heating. If the bake element isn't working, the oven may not heat. To help determine if the bake element is defective you should first do a visual check. If the element is blistered or separated then it should be replaced. If the element appears to look normal, then turn the oven on to a bake function for a minute and then turn it off.
Check the element for signs of heating and if it is still cold then it may be defective. Disconnect the power and then remove the back panel. First check the wires as they may have become loose or corroded. If the element appears to be fine visually, test it for continuity with a multi-meter. If the element is burned or no longer has continuity, it will need to be replaced.
hey man don;t worry i have too much solution if i explain u every thing then you confused so i explain one and if u want another then e-mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org so listen carefully
Step 1: Turn off the power supply, both gas and electric, to the range. Then remove the burner.
Step 2: Soak the burner in a solution of mild household detergent and water. Clean it with a soft cloth.
Step 3: Clear the gas ports with a pin or needle, rinse the burner, and let it dry. Caution: Do
not use a toothpick or matchstick to clean the gas ports. If the tip of
the wood gets stuck in the burner ports, it could cause a serious
Step 4: When the burner is completely dry, replace it, and turn on the power and the gas supply.
An oven that won't heat can occur for a variety of reasons.
If I understand your use correctly, you were using the oven to heat the space? Or for baking?
Regardless, it sounds as though the elements have failed. If you used the oven for heating the space (with the door open) the broiler element comes on during preheat of the oven to get the oven to temperature more quickly. The elements are NOT designed to heat a space, and will quickly burn out if used in this manner.
Pull the bottom of the oven off. You will see 2 to 4 screws that hold the panel on. The ignitor is under there. Look at the ignitor carefully for breaks. I say carefully as the ignitor is very easy to break.
