Probably not. It sounds like your broil element burned out. This just happens sometimes. If it is this , it will have visible chunks missing. Yes, It shorted with enough force to blow the main fuse. Unplug it as sometimes it can still be live and sparking when power is restored. Element is fairly cheap usually less than $50 and you can fix it yourself.

Check the breaker first, then the wiring in the back from the receptacle to the oven. Check to see if the wires in the plug are secure. Then look in the back side of the oven and you will find the wires attached to a connection box. This is where you should find your problem. If not here, your board could be bad. The replacement board is not that expensive. I really think the wiring is the problem since you have neither the top nor the oven working.

SOURCE: oven quit working
Hi. this is common in many old gas range ovens. There is a set of coils that are attached to the gas valve assembly. These coils , when activated and operational, open and close the main and secondary valves in this unit. They are controlled by the main ERC(clock/oven control board). I recommend checking these coils and there respective wiring harnesses. if the clips and wires are worn and corroded, simply replace the entire wire harness.
Now, if the wiring harness and wires that are connected to the coils look good and there are no signs of corrosion on the wires and connector clips, this will confirm that the coils have failed and you will need to replace them.
You can also preform an additional test with a multimeter. simply connect your multimeter or voltage meter to both terminal posts located on the coils. once your meter is connected, start the oven cycle. you should register some sort of current during this test at this time. if the current is sufficient and the coils do not initiated the valve action, this will confirm coil failure. if the meter dosen't register a current during oven operation, this will confirm ERC(control) failure. you will have to replace the Oven control board in this case.
The Most common issue in this situation will most defiantly be the coil assembly and not the control.
Please rate and god bless:)

I would seriously re-think your decision to get into this. The problem is the Bake/Broil selector switch and is REALLY difficult to explain how to replace. There are only 6 wires on the failed switch, but getting to it and wiring it properly is beyond the purview of this forum because the chances of mis-wiring it could cause; at best, another component failure and, at worst... serious injury or death.
I'm not kidding.
Generally speaking, hiring a professional tech to install this for you would run about $200. But that's peanuts compared to a new oven or an extended hospital stay.... or a funeral.
I really not joking.
Anyway, I hope you consider NOT getting in there since you don't know what you'd be looking for. Also... kill the breaker 'til you get this thing fixed.
I hope you consider my response to be a solution, because that's exactly what it is. Since you do, will you show me some FixYa love like I did you and rate this solution?
