Hi, if this is a gas range, then the odds are your electronic ignitor is shot. It may glow for a while, which is where you'll pick up some small amount of heat, but it's not allowing the proper voltage to pass so the gas safety valve can open and allow the burner to light. The igniter will have to be replaced, either by you or a tech.
If it's an electric range, then there's a problem with the thermocouple connected to the heat control knob. The thermocouple senses the amount of heat in the oven and regulates it by turning the element power on or off. If the elements heat at all, then they're ok. If they were shot or open, as we say, then there would be no heat at all.
