Question about Kitchen Ranges
If your range/oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these:
Fuse/circuit breaker --Check to see if power is getting to the range/oven. Does anything turn on--even a light? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.
Range/oven wiring --There may be a broken or burned wire at the back of the range/oven. The burning wires may have caused that smell. If you repair any of the wires, use only proper appliance-grade wire and wire connectors.
However the sizzling sound came from the heating element which has burnt . You'll need a multimeter to check for the resistance of the coil/element. The resistance would be around 1.6 to 1.8 Kohms.
Also see this diagram for more details---
If there is no continuity in the element then you'll need to replace the element. You can buy a new element for you oven from this link---
