Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

No there is not a reset, the only thing you can do to reset it is kill power to it at the breaker for a few minutes restore power and see if the stove has power after that, other than that it is going to be a component failure of some sort, does anything at all work on the stove? The top or oven? Also that is not a good model number could you find the serial tag on the stove and give me the full model number listed on the serial tag, its usually located behind the door on the oven frame, or if it has a storage drawer at the bottom pull the drawer out and look for a tag behind that drawer that has the model and serial number listed on it, thanks. Answer those few questions and I can help you further.

sorry that is not the model number, the model number will be on a tag on the stove and it will say model num:xxxxxx

and serial num xxxxxx

it will not be some random stamped number on the stove by itself.
