First...what do you hear? Is there any activity at all? If not and the light doesn't work and there is no panel indication...the problem is the inbound circuit. If all appears to be working and the unit isn't heating, the first guess is the internal fuse or the over temperature sensor. With the plug out, remove the control panel and have a look inside. There is generally a fuse which controls most things. With a circuit tester, you may be able to locate and test the temp sensors. They are black, about the diameter of a dime and about 3/8 inch thick. Generally, they are fitted to the metal near the oven side. The sensor should show continuity. If not, replace it. Generally, only one blows at a time. There are other possibilities...start here. Remember: internal voltages up to lethal levels exist when the unit is set to operate.
