It's not a fuse, but a wire or heating element has burned up. Please TURN OFF the circuit breaker until you repair the problem, or at least until you know what the problem is! You say "in" the stove, so I'm assuming that you mean in the oven. Whichever element it is, whether it's in the oven or on the stovetop, just needs to be removed and checked for continuity with an ohmmeter. Quite frankly, if it IS an element, then you should see a burned-out spot somewhere on it that's pretty obvious. Then you just need to replace the element. If it's a wire, then you will need to repair the wire so that it safely makes contact with the element again. That process is a little more involved than just replacing an element, but let us know what you find. I can describe a wire-repair procedure if need be. ;)

SOURCE: Hotpoint Gas oven doesn't light
Sounds like the oven ignitor is weak. If everything else is working it must be a bad ignitor. These are usually easy to replace and can expect to pay $70-$100 for the part. Check to see if it glows when in bake mode first. If it does then replace the ignitor. You can look at the ignitor, when not on, if it is white-ish then it needs replace or if it doesn't have a full glow, can compare to broil ignitor, then it needs replaced. Let me know if you have further questions.
