We had a quick power outage (maybe 1 min), and found that afterwards the four elements will not turn on, nor the oven. Display is working fine though, as well as heating area in back middle of stove top. Tried turning off breaker / back on and unplugged unit / plugged back in, checked fuses in top of device (look fine). Any ideas?

It could indeed be the elements that are the problem if the elements are bad generally you will see a section of it that looks different than the rest(kinda looks like textured stucco if bad) if that isn't the case the elements must be tested to see if the proper power is going to them, you could do that by TURNING OFF POWER AT THE CIRCUIT BREAKER unscrew the element from the back wall of oven and pull element out about 6 inches out, attach a voltage meter set to measure at least 240 volts ac to the two wires, turn on breaker set oven to back and check for 240 vac to element. If 240 vac at element replace element if 240 vac not present the thermostat,or selector switch is bad not providing the 240 vac to element
1. Test for power to determine that the unit is receiving the correct voltages. 2. If the power voltages are correct and you have standard surface burner elements: 1. Test Surface Burner. 2. Test the Receptacle. 3. Test the Burner Switch. 3. If the power voltages are correct and you have solid-disc elements: 1. Test the solid-disc element. 2. Test the Burner Switch. 4. If the power voltages are correct and you have radiant heating elements: 1. Test the radiant heating element. 2. Test the Burner Switch.
1. Make sure the controls are set properly that the oven selector switch is set correctly and that the temperature switch is set to the desired temperature. Where applicable, make sure the oven timer is set to manual.
2. Make sure the oven door is slightly ajar as per your owner's manual.
3. If nothing else on the Range, Oven or Cooktop is working then: 1. Check the circuit breaker or fuse 2. Test for power
4. Test the broiler element.
5. Check the oven thermostat.
6. Check selector switch.
7. Check oven cycling relay.
REMEMBER YOU ARE WORKING WITH 220 VOLTS - USE EXTREME CAUTION .

Thanks for using fixya..and please don't forget to rate me 100%.
I have the same problem, it turns out that the clock has a sensor in it to turn on the oven. If that sensor is not working, which is found in the clock, the oven does not work. I had a repair guy come out and it will cost 350.00 to repair. My stove is only six years old. It is only two months to the day off warranty. Apparently a power outage can cause the sensor to go. Hope this helps.
First and foremost check the breaker box. Ovens use 240 volts which is a double breaker in the box. Just to be safe I would click both breakers off and then back on together. If this doesnt work turn off the power and have someone help you pull the oven out and check your plug or connection. You may be dealing with a broken wire in the junction box due to the power outage. If you have a volt meter turn the power on SAFETLY and test if your getting 240 volts. If the connections are good (including the one from the juction box to the stove itself) and you are getting proper votage, unfortunatley you are going to have to get a new control. What happens is with only 120 volts going to the oven everything runs but your elements (they utilize the 240 volts to heat). You can tell time or use the timer but without your full 240 your turkey aint gonna cook. There is 120 volts coming coming from each of those breakers you checked in the garage. Bottom line is the chances of both elements going out at the same time are slim to none and I feel you are probably dealing with a broken wire.
Its the thermal safety switch. When it trips - it cuts any power from reaching BOTH elements. Open the oven door - at the top wehere the oven latch is - remove the long black panel. In the middle - on the right is a small cylindrical switch...push down on the top - in the very center...it will rest the switch (like a circuit breaker) and then reassemble. Just did it on mine (2nd time) and it fired right up. Good luck
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.
