Something has fused (broken) along the power line into the oven. Use an ohmmeter (power off) and check continuity along every possible power path (wire) until you find an OPEN ohms condition.

Moved Kenmore electric oven (2 yrs old) and now neither the oven or stovetop heat up. The clock is set.

This may sound silly, but go check your circuit breaker and flip it completely off and then back on. Sometimes it does not completely trip and your clock only needs 120 volts to work which you have, but the heating coils need 240 volts. If you have an older house that has a fuse panel instead of circuit breakers you could have a blown fuse.

We had our oven in the garage for 20 hrs while we replaced the flooring. Now the oven doesn't work just the range. Why?

You probably knocked the element loose when you moved it. You failed to say gas or electric so I am presuming electric when I say this.

Thanks for your interest in
