Question about Ovens
The element for the oven is separate from the grill element. As you haven't specified your oven brand or model, I can't say that with 100% certainty, but every oven I ever seen has separate elements for grill and oven.
It's most likely that your oven element is burnt out. To check this, you need to get access to the oven element and (with the power off) test for continuity/resistance across the live and neutral terminals of the element. You'll need an Ohm meter to do this.
If your oven element checks out, the next things to check are the oven switch, thermostat and the wiring from the oven switch to the element.
I'd guess your element is burnt out. Common problem, especially if you've had the oven a while.
Please rate my solution if you find this helpful. Thanks.
