Question about Ovens
Since none of the burners or elements will heat, I recommend that you shut off the house circuit breakers for the range. Your symptoms point to a voltage supply problem. The range should have a double breaker (the two circuit breakers are probably connected together with a metal clip). The range clock control will light up if only one leg (L1) of that power supply is provided to the range. If the second leg of power (L2) is missing, then none of the burners or oven elements will heat. You could have a problem with the circuit breakers or the wiring on the terminal block at the back of the range. With the breakers shut off , I recommend that you pull the range out and check the wiring on that terminal block. Based on your description, you may find a loose connection or burnt wiring in that area. The image below shows wiring information for the terminal block and the junction box for the range. This information should help you check that issue. If you can find a wiring failure and restore a proper voltage supply to the range, then the stove top burners and oven elements should heat properly.If you find no problems with the wiring, then you could have a bad circuit breaker or a problem with the house voltage supply for the range. An electrician will normally need to diagnose and repair that type of failure. I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.
