This is a Viking Professional VM0C205SS and was expensive. I have only had it four years.

Two things would be needed to make the diagnosis and repair. High voltage experience and a volt/ohm meter.

If both do not heat I would suspect a voltage issue. The most likely issue would be the door switch. If the switch fails the heating part of the circuit is not completed.

If the door switches test good, there are three, the control would need to be replaced to fix the issue.

Thank you. We will try this. We are located in the part of Kansas where I wouldn't have any idea where to get help. I had ordered this online. My husband is a farmer so I am sure that we can figure this out. Thanks again for your help.
