My stove (i.e. ceramic cook top) works fine. But my oven and the entire control panel suddenly stopped working and seem to be completely de-energized. If I push any of the buttons, I receive no response. Also, lights inside the oven are dead. This problem occurred today, and my range is about 14 months old.

The circuit breaker outside in the power panel for the stove has a bad breaker. It will be two breakers with their handles joined together by a pin so if one tripe it takes the other so 220 V is no longer present. When one, but not the other trips you only have 110 V. That's why the lights and clock still work but no heating elements.
Either the knob has gone out or the burner element. I would test the knob first to see if there is current when turned to the large zone. If the knob is working, next would be to test the burner to see if the outer ring has burned out. I would guess more likely the control has gone out. Burners have less failure (typically).
You probably have a short that is causing the stove not to heat up or you not to be able to control temperature settings. The stoves are made only to last as long as the warranty, and when it expires, the stove all of a sudden wants to break down. You might have to get a whole new stove.
for all others with this problem: I had the stove serviced. Repairman reported a loose wire to the elemets (tightened and did not fix the problem) followed by a stuck relay, and after some banging on the back of the control panel, the elements now work fine. He said if it happened again the only solution would be to replace the relay/control panel, a part of about $160, but I'll get credit for the price of the service call already paid. Compare to the price of the stove, I'll accept the $125 for the service call.
so tapping on the back of the control panel is worth a try if your stove is pulling this trick.
