Re: ge double oven - both ovens stopped heating...
My first thought is the power supply to the unit. Cut the breakers and inspect all connections from the fuse box to the oven. You will likely find open connections or corrosion. One breaker could also be bad. Check the voltage with appropriate caution and a voltmeter. Breakers should respond with a snap when turned on.
Note: there are two breakers which control the oven: one with a red wire, the other is black. Each provides 110 volts to the oven in combination with the white neutral. Together, the black and red give you 220. If one of the circuits is out or in poor condition, the bulbs might not work and the oven won't either.

Hi, If your electric oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating lelement in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself... Check out this tip that I wrote about the Oven not heating problem..
Usually, when an oven won't heat, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
The F1 error is similar to the F7 error and the fix may be similar. It indicates that the touchpanel needs to be replaced. The problem is really one where the insulation is breaking down between two sections of the ribbon cable which connects the touchpanel to the electronic control. I have solved the problem by placing slip of paper between the two secions of the ribbon cable. The slip of paper should be worked down into the slot. It will only go about 1/8". A piece of file card material works well. See attachec photo. If you have a metal touchpanel, you will also have to add slips of paper at the edges of the metal slot.
__Be sure and turn off the power to the oven at your circuit breaker!____There are usually three small screws at the bottom of the touchpanel. The panel may need to be pushed upward to release it. Have a friend available to hold the panel while you work on it. Do not allow the panel to dangle by the wires.____Please let me know if this works for you or if you have any questions.
