please remember we are not in your home to do the repair or test our self and cant always be 100% and can always overlook something / thanks

are you only getting 120 volts to the burners?
is the control panel blank or can you set it?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
control panel lights up clock works and can set temp. oven element does not heat or even get warm . volts at the element connection 125 volts in and 125volts out other end.
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 7 years ago.
you should have 220v since its a electric range ,, pull it out and check the connection where the power comes to the back of the range and the breaker ,, you have a burnt, shorted wire or the outlet burnt out

have full voltage at back of range stove top works just the oven elements not working . seems the ground to the elements missing elements not shorted ohms ok
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 7 years ago.
remove the back panel and check for burnt wires to elements and at switched and control board
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

does any of the burners get red hot
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
all burners get red hot only the oven elements not working that why i suspected control bad
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 7 years ago.
ok ,, i thought you said the burners wasnt working either ,, with the pop and the oven wont come on then yes it will be the control board ,, sorry for mis-understanding ,, the part number isNNN-NN-NNNNand cost about $145 and the overlay is pant numberNNN-NN-NNNNand cost about $23 and its a good idea to buy the overlay because the old one dont alwats come off the control without damage to it ,, you can get it at a local appliance parts dealer near you or online at
