Top oven works great. Bottom oven light comes on but no fan and no heat. Indicator light measures temp but doesn't tell me that it is heating up (because it is not). Brand new just installed. Why would the top oven work but not the bottom?
If its brand new, most possibly the electrician did not bridge the mains connection.
It sounds like an installation fault.
There is usually a jumper between 1-2-3 on the L connection on the mains, and a jumper between 4-5 on the N connection.

since neither light is going on, then i believe that you either have a bad thermostat, or possibly that you only have half of the voltage going to it, and gaggenau doesn't have gas units so it doesn't have a glow bar like the previous guy said.
Nothing in the elements, thermostat thermocouples are gas filled, sensors have wiring inside, nothing in the liner or insulation. You said this was a stove, and some stoves have a vent that goes up through one of the burners on the top. If you had oil splatter or drip into this it can get into your oven. We do know that some blower fans on convection ovens have a sealed oil bearing, but there would be very little oil coming out of this (drops) and you will notice your fan getting noisier or running slower in the near future.

A tripped breaker or blown fuse on an electric oven or cook-top, combined with an element that has stopped working, is usually a sign of a shorted, then blown (if the fuse or breaker no longer fail) element.
If you know how to use an ohmeter, you can pull the element, disconnect the wires from each end, then measure the resistance between each end of the element, and each element to the outer sheath.
A good element has just a few ohms of resistance between the wire connection points, and infinite resistance from the wire connection points to the outer sheath. Any readings other than that means the element is bad and need's to be replaced.
gas ovens and many broilers use a "glow-bar" style of igniter that
glows red-hot to ignite the gas. If the igniter doesn't reach the
proper temperature, the gas valve won't open. You may need to replace
