HI I have a different brand, but this same thing was happening to our oven, I had to have a repairman replace the temperature sensor in the oven. Apparently it was reading the temperature as like 300 degrees higher than it actually was so it was shutting off (I guess as a safety mechanism). Hope this helps. Good luck.

SOURCE: Stove won't heat
Oven was working, I had it on pre-heat, then I turned on the stove top, but the burners won't heat. When I turn on the stove top the stove makes a short BUZZ noise and the clock area lights up, when the burner is turned off all the lights go out. Please help, food prepared.

There isn't a pilot light on MOST modern gas ranges. The top burners are controlled by individual igniters through a common spark module. The oven, however, is controlled by an igniter on each manifold. One for bake, one for broil. If you are having problems with ONE of the oven features, I would suspect a bad igniter. If BOTH oven features are bad, you may have a bad Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. If the oven works, but none of the surface burners are working, I would suspect a bad spark module. The following link explains a little theory on oven igniters:
Since your range appears to have a common gas safety valve and regulator, all burners are fed fromthe same gas source. Which means, if you have ANY burners lighting, you probably don't have a gas problem.
I hope you can determine what your problem is from the information I provided. If not, please post back and elaborate a bit more on your symptoms so that I may assist you better. I hope this helps you.

the element is easy to change. just slide out the stove from the wall. take off the rear cover and just unplug or unscrew the leads from that element and replace. first make sure you unplug the stove it's self from the wall. it does have 220 volt and will hurt you.
