An oven that won't heat is usually the result of a faulty igniter (for a gas oven) or heating element (for an electric oven). If both your gas oven and your gas burners have stopped working, the problem is most likely with the gas line, and will require professional repair. Reset the electronic control. Turn the breaker to the OFF position. Wait one minute, then turn the breaker back to the ON position to reset. This needs to be done even if the light or the clock on the range is working. Many electric ranges include a fuse in the 120-volt circuit that operates such items as oven and stovetop lights, the electric clock, convenience outlets, etc. In order to check the fuses on your electric range, the following steps should be taken: Visually inspect the fuse to see if it has blown. Electric Oven Not Heating. If everything is working properly BUT the oven, it usually means that the baking element and the broil element are intact and working. The issue is most likely a bad internal fuse, oven temp sensor, thermostat, a broken/frayed wire, power issue, or an oven control board. Most ovens that use fuses will have an indication of the circuits that are affected by a particular fuse. If an oven fuse has blown, then you should inspect the oven element and the associated wiring to determine the cause before replacing the fuse. Do not change the rating of the fuses.

Inspect the fuses and replace any that have blown with one of the same amperage. Your oven might also have a circuit breaker with a reset button on the control console or on top of the oven that needs to be reset. If it is a range/oven combo, make sure it is plugged securely into the wall.

Household Power Unplug the oven from the electrical outlet first and then replace any fuses that have blown or reset any tripped circuit breakers. Wait 30 seconds and then plug the oven back in to the electrical outlet.
