The electronics were probably destroyed by the lightning strike.
Heating elements can withstand voltage surges but not the more sensitive electronics.
The oven is controlled by the timer but none of the top burners are. Using the Brand name and Model number you should be able to buy parts. The controls may all on a single board.
It could happen yes it would depend where the strike entered the TV. Not all lighting strikes hit on the electrical lines, on a TV they can come through the cable, as well as a antenna if you have one hooked up.
yes this is most likely do to the lightning i have been to a couple houses hit by lightning that all of the appliances were shorted due to lightning try first unplugging the power cord then replug to see if you can get it to trip back to the normal fuction mode most of the time this does not work most likely your main control board has shorted out due to the lightning most of the time this is covered under you homeowners insurance if you rent then you can speak with the landlord. your other option would be to open the unit and find every shorted spot which might get a bit costly hope this helps
Lightening may have caused a surge on your power lines to the house and to the outlet the TV was on. Do other things work on that outlet? If not you tripped a power breaker.If they do work check this. Unplug the TV for 2 min or more and plug back in. Try bypassing your surge protector you had it plugged into. It could have died when the lightening struck. (no surge protector?) Bet you'll buy one for your next TV. Look for 3000 joules and up rating for a surge protector and insure it has protection for a cable/antenna input too. If this doesn't work the TV may be fried or internal fuse blown. Time to take it to a repair shop or depending on it's age (5 years+) it may be time to buy a new TV and surge protector. Near Lightening strikes can effect appliances from several inputs that could be affected from outside like Power, Cable, Antennas, Phone Lines that come into your house.
Did the electrical service power go out, or did the display on the oven go out? If it was the display, then make certain the breakers didn't trip or fuses blow feeding power to the unit. If they are both good, and the display is still not lighting up, the unit may have blown a thermal fuse, usually located near the control head. This failure could be caused by a number of things (it happened that my KitchenAid had a service bulletin and modification kit to replace the blowers and reroute the wiring).
