All of the electrical items seem to work fine (clock, oven light, "element on" light) but absolutely none of the burners nor the oven will actually heat up. This came out of no where, one day everything worked, the next it didn't.

Re: Burners and oven will not heat
Something is stopping the gas flow. Turn off gas. Disconnect line from the stove have someone turn on and off the the gas just for a second.(make sure no flame in room). See if gas is available.If not it is the gas line leading into the house somewhere,not the stove. Follow the piping to the first thng it comes to. Disconnect that line and see if it is open from there back to the connection. If you finally get to the valve,which I dont think you will . You will have to disassemble or replace it.

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.
Usual faults in this order are: Faulty oven element - check element for holes, blow marks etc; Burnt off wiring at the oven element terminals - check terminals; If the oven indicator lights when the oven is turned on it should be the above. If it does not refer below; Electronic clock set to auto. mode instead of manual mode.
Sounds like you need an bake element ignitor if the bake doesn't work but if the broil also doesn't work, it could be the electronic clock/timer control. the part number for the bake ignitor is 8054129 .Best off to call a reliable service company such as Sears.
We had the same thing happen and now they came and said it was the clock that needs to be replaced. They said that controls the oven. Even though clock is on and working the function for turning on the oven is not
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.
if the oven fan and light are not working, then the clock probably needs setting.
if oven fan and light work, but no heat, then the problem is probably the circular element round the fan. remove the back panel of the oven and you can often (but not always) see the damage.
replacement of the element is straightforward
