You shorted out the leads on the oven case when you lifted the element, even though the element is off there is power to one side of the incoming element

While cleaning oven I lifted bottom element heard a pop. Now neither the stove or oven will not come on. The indicator lights do not light up either.


The "pop" was the sound of the heating element shorting to ground so naturally nothing works now.

It sounds like the heating element is faulty. If it has a short, it will have a damaged place. A short causes a build up of amps until it can't take anymore and then a action will happen like a fuse blowing, which it the noise you hear. You can get replacement elements on Amazon fairly cheap. To fix, unplug the stove. Lift and tug on the element to pull it out of the socket. It is usually easy.

After a "pop" - the oven no longer works


You should have thrown the breaker before moving the oven. The element likely shorted and blew the breaker. make sure the breaker is off. replace the element and plug it back in and reset the breaker.

Oven will not heat


Although I am not familiar with this oven, living in the u/k, I would say that without any doubt the oven element(s) have failed, more so if the fan is working, so I would have hesitation that you replace the suspect element (s)..
Plz let me know how you get on.Thanks.
