If the light remains on, that would indicate the circuit was damaged. The light goes on when the circuit is complete. This usually happens when the burner gets hot. If it caught fire, then the stove is registering it as hot all the time.

To Set the Clock
The clock must be set to the correct time
of day for the automatic oven timing functions
to work properly,The time of day cannot be
changed during a delayed cooking or a delayed
self-cleaning cycle,
1. Touch the Clock pad twice.
For models without a Clock pad:
Hold the + and - pads for 3 seconds.

2. Touch the + or - pads.
If the + or - pads are not touched within one
minute after Step 1, the display reverts to the
original setting. If this happens, repeat Step 1
and reenter the time of day.

3. Touch the Start/On pad until the time of
day shows in the display. This enters the
time and starts the clock.
To check the time of day when the display is
showing other information, simply touch the
Clock pad. The time of day shows until another
pad is touched.

1) Copy following link for live answer Dec 2012 to figure correct wire size

2) Fixya posts 'recommended' answers based on computer guessing what you asked. Look for date on each answer.
Recommended answers can be totally unrelated, but sometimes they are spot on. These answers were posted by experts over previous years, and now fixya owns the work done by others and uses that work to answer questions that live expert does not answer.

3) This particular Question was posted under 'Chrome timer knob set,' and somehow ended up among timer questions. Each expert answers questions by expertise such as timer, water heater, electric wiring etc.
Often the questions do nor show a product or clearly state what answer is needed. People do not always know what they are asking for. That's why fixya is here: to help sort out possible answers.
So the expert sometimes guesses at answer, or the computer guesses which recommended answers to post.

4) Add a comment for live follow-up, Dec 2012

You need a multimeter to do some fault-finding. Also, check for a (usually hidden) square ceramic fuse mounted inside the thermal insulation of some ovens. They go open circuit with age.
The multimeter is used to perform fault-finding on the oven's controls, (inc the fuses) to determine voltage presence. Sometimes the fuse holders themselves corrode internally, causing problems.

timer my still be on or it could be stuck

When you select oven setting do the oven element and the broiler come on at the same time? If they do and the oven is not working the oven element is probably blown or there is burnt wiring at the element terminals.

I am sorry but here we have no parts connections for any type of appliance, we can provide technical assistance when things go wrong, but no parts. Sorry

The circuit breaker probably tripped. Usually it will be a 2 pole 40 or 50 amp breaker. Turn it all the way OFF, then back ON. Sometimes it's not easy to visually tell if a breaker has tripped, so do it anyway. If that doen't solve the problem post back please.
