Customer Question

Hi, I have a Westinghouse 557 Oven.
Everything works but the oven. Several times before, when we've had blackouts, the oven didn't turn on until I pressed the mode button. But unfortunately thats not working this time. I used it last night - was working fine (and we didn't have a blackout) but for some unknown reason it won't turn on. The fan in the oven is working but not the element?? The stove is only 2 years old, so it shouldn't need a new element yet?? I cannot find my manual for the oven so was just wondering whether you could advise me what I could try.

Thanks Deb Mullins
