Question about Ovens
Above the switches is a cover which flips up to expose the fuses. Check that the fuses are intact. If you have a voltmeter you can measure for voltage in the centre connecting pin inside the fuse holder.(remove the fuse first). If there is no power the fault would be with the wiring between the terminal block and the fuse. You will need to open the rear panel of the stove.
Since the light and fan are also inoperative I suspect that you may have a wiring fault on the neutral side of the element which also connects to the fan and heater.
Shut the power to the stove off at the wall isolator switch. Remove the rear cover. Check the wiring between the terminal block and fuse. Inspect the connector lugs to see that they fit tightly on the connecting tabs. If not, disconnect the lug, use a pair of pliers and pinch the lug to ensure a tight fit.
Follow the wiring from the element to the neutral connector and back to the junction block for neutral connections. See the simplified diagram below.

There is a fuse in the back if you remove the rear panel. Check to see if the fuse looks good. If the element is bad, it won't effect the switch, light, or fan. The switch, light, and fan all run off of there own circuit. If that circuits is bad, has a burnt out fusible link, or the electrical circuit board they connect to is bad, then they won't work. You will likely need to trace the wiring from the control panel to the circuit that runs these three things. Use a volmeter to test for power and you can also use an ohmmeter to test for continuity of the circuit itself.
