You need to clean up burner and the sparker head from dirt which acts like isolator and prevent spark to jump. Burner must have metal to metal contact with the range casing in order to work. Grease, oil and burned liquids like milk act like isolators and prevent contact between burner and the casing (mass).

Just unplug the range from the wall, take off burner, scrub and wash off all the dirt from it and from its seat to the very metal. Dry it out completely and put back in place. Plug in the range and give it a try.

How to fix the main oven in our Baumatic range cooker?

Although elements look in one piece they can go 2 ways, short circuit (visible normally by a bulge or tear) or the resistance gets way too high, They should normally be around 30 ohms resistance reading. Use a multimeter and check the ohm's reading of the element

Good evening i have a BT2431SS baumatic cooker,i have no heat in main oven yet i have the hob and the grill that work ok.

If it is a fan assisted electric oven, and the fan is wrking o/k, then it will probably be a faulty oven element.
This is located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a removeable cover.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.
