Did the electrical service power go out, or did the display on the oven go out?
If it was the display, then make certain the breakers didn't trip or fuses blow feeding power to the unit. If they are both good, and the display is still not lighting up, the unit may have blown a thermal fuse, usually located near the control head. This failure could be caused by a number of things (it happened that my KitchenAid had a service bulletin and modification kit to replace the blowers and reroute the wiring).

Please reply you findings and I wil help you more.

No water at all coming from the hot water (electric) tank? we drained tank in case there was an air leak already. If we wait awhile it will run again for a bit then stop --no reason to it. Help please with...

If it is at least a 30 gallon tank it has two thermostats  One behind each door. They are ajustable and you should  be able to cycle then on and off with a small screwdriver. Went finished,if they both worked set them on the same value. With a volt meter,if test lamp,see that you have rated  voltage coming into the tank.   Turn off the electricity, Disconnect the wires for the heater eliments (one behing and usually placed under the theromostates and  the with a battery type test light, if you have not an ohm meter .  Check across each one. Light should light dimly. Brightly means that the eliment is shorted . No light indicates that the eliment is open. No or bright either one replace the eliment. That is about all their is too it . Fairly simple design.

Lower heating eliments don't heat or glow. Only top ones work

The elements are not orderable, but you can call Cuisinart with your serial number - the product has a 3-year warranty, and that is definitely a defect - will they glow if you put them on Toaster setting?

Oven will not heat at all after an interrumpted cleaning cycle (power went off)

There is a thermo fuse located behind the back panel of the oven. If the oven appears to be working but is not actually heating then this is the cause. The oven will have to be removed from the wall, power to the oven shut off at the main breaker and the back panel removed. the thermo fuse is just to the left and up from the center of the convection fan. It has 2 wires connected to it.
