I have a Thermador X301XP single built-in electric oven. In fact, I have two separately installed. I have checked breaker and power to over and all other function seems to work except I cannot get the oven to heat up. When I set the oven to preheat, it will not heat. When I tried the broiler, it will not heat. What is wrong? Is the thermostat bad or is there an internal fuse?

the broil element
is the heating element that is found at the top of the oven and produces a very high heat for broiling. If the broil element isn't working, you should first do a visual inspection for signs that the element has blistered or separated. If the element appears normal then you can check for continuity with a multi-meter. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test. Remove the back panel and locate the terminals for the broil element and inspect the terminals and wires for signs of overheating or damage.
If there is no continuity then the element will need to be replaced. If the wires are damaged then they will need to be repaired. If the element is ok then you will need to check the broil circuit to determine the cause. This involves live voltage checks and should only be performed by qualified persons. Components to check include fuses, if the range is equipped, and oven control thermostat or electronic control. Depending on the manufacturer of the element, you will normally read between 19 ohms and 115 ohms
Problem is usually either temperature probe or heating element.
Grab a multimeter and set it on impedance (Ohms). Remove first temperature probe and then heating element. If either probe or element is reading open (ohms infinity), then replace the part.
If both probe and elements are not open, then the problem is either wiring or oven electronic control. The most common fault resulting in no heat is the temperature sensor located inside the oven cavity.
The top element should come on when Broiler is selected. If both ovens have a broiler mode, then look for something failed in the circuit for the broiler heating elements (it's unlikely both broiler elements would fail together.). If there is only 1 oven with a broiler, look for a failed broiler element.
you may want to check your broil element
turn the unit on and wait a few minutes
see if you can feel the heat from the upper broiler elemnet
some model use both elements to preheat
i dont have your productiuon number so i cannot be sure with your model
14-20 mins is the industry standard for a 350 preheat...
First your broiler heating element may have gone bad and now you oven heating element may have gone bad. Using an OHM meter disconnect them and test for their value.Full scale on the meter means it is shorted. No meter movement means that it is open.Eitehr means to obtain a new element(s) and replace it/them.
it sounds as if you have a tripped thermal cut out. This is accessed by removing the 5 or so screws on the black grate below the control panel and pulling the grate out. Somewhere in the middle towrds the front should be a little button wiht 2 wires hooked to it. make sure you have the power off to the oven, then reach in with a screwdriver or your hand if you can and push the little red buttton down untill it clicks. The cause for this to trip could be bent door hinges not allowing the door to close fully (common thermadore problem), bad door gasket especially in combination with running a self clean cycle, broiling with the door ajar, or a bad cooling fan (the one behind the electronics, not the one in the oven) Hope this helps.
