Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! There is a high limit switch, but it should reset with a power cycle. See the excerpt from the service manual below. Have you power cycled the range?
HIGH LIMIT SWITCH
VGSC306 Gas Self-clean Ranges Function: The High Limit Switch (located on the clean lock bracket) is designed to keep the temperature from reaching a run away condition. The switch is a normally closed switch that will open when the temperature, at the clean lock bracket, reaches 275°F. The Switch contains a heater that will keep it from cycling at the high temperature. The Switch will only reset when the supply voltage to the range is interrupted.
(Unplug the range cord or interrupt the voltage at the fuse / breaker box.)
That thermal only affects the heat. If the range is totally dead, there has to be a problem with the power to the entire range. I am sorry, I misunderstood the problem. If you have verified voltage to the outlet the range is plugged in to, you will likely find a wire has shorted (causing the fuse to blow) and will need to be repaired.
