It is most likely the pop came from a relay on the control board if the elements checked ok but not getting power to them. This is fairly common on fridgidaire ranges. Replace the oven control. Usually the control overlay is sold as a separate piece.

Counter top or oven will not heat up.

Go back to you breaker box. Re-set the breakers on each side of the one you re-set before. Now try it. Thr range works on 220v. This consist of two breaker leavers. One for each leg of the 220v. If you only re-set one leg, only half the things work.

Fridgidaire slide in oven, everything works but oven elements

I would have to look for a broken or shorted wire in the back of the unit or even a burned out control board. if you heard the noise then it should be pretty easy to see the problem. pay attention the the main wires coming into the range from the wall.

Oven does not come on

First, reset your circuit breakers. This is generally a pair of breakers with at least a 30 ampere rating. It is not your kitchen breaker. Turn them both off and back on. If this doesn't do it, you've got to look at the heat element. Does it look damaged, deformed, discolored? If so, remove it and bring it to the appliance guy to get it tested. Generally this is a couple of screws. Make sure power is off when dealing with this. Not the element? Then you've got the control board.
