There could be something "blown " inside. have a close look underneath for screws so that you can undo and have a look at the components inside. Check for burnt wiring or terminals. Replace a s required. These type of cookers also have an overheat device which may have tripped if it overheated. You will need a multimeter to check if that has "open circuited"

Neff cooker not heating up

Hi, it feels like your oven element has gone.
switch it off from the mains, open the door and remove the screws fixing the back panel. You will find a round two turn element. Unscrew the element fixings and check the element for burnt marks, corrosion. If you have a multi meter, turn it to buzzer and use the meter leads to test the element connections. If it doesn't buzz, it's dead. Just needs replacing.
