    You must verify first about the availability of power to oven. Switch on a surface burner and ensure that it is heating. Also check that you have the voltage of 240V.
    There is possibility that one side of the 240V supply to ‘drop out’, and could allow the surface burners to heat slightly while other components to look normal. But if surface is showing burners red hot, it means you have 240V.
    In case of using an analog clock, set it to manual. You can find many different ‘manual’ and ‘time-bake’ arrangements, but normally, the instructions are usually given on or around the clock face.
    If your oven uses one of the latest electronic controls and if it is not displaying any error codes the you can proceed further.
    First, power the range down and run your hand across the bake stuff, and observe for any rough areas. If the unit is electrically frank, you’ll generally (not always) locate a rough, burnt part. In several cases the baked particles will usually be blown aside, and describing elements are definitely bad!
    But whether there’s no detectable damage to the particle surface, we’ll continue.
    The fastest way to act is equal to what we negotiated on the ‘no heat’ dryer, and the same 240V trial bulb is again placed to good use. If you’re not homely trading with 240V, though, all the usual disclaimers apply - call a technician!
    Power down the range and drag the roast particle partway out of the stove cavity, generally via withdrawing two screws. Connect your 240V bulb to the particle terminals, being sure they aren’t touching the cabinet, and energy rear up. Turn the stove to ‘bake’ and watch that bulb. Light: frank roast element. No light: composure or wiring problems.
    If there’s no voltage to the bake particle, you might want to power down and withdraw the range rear panel, burnt wires. If there doesn’t feel to be any wiring affect, I'd possibly recommend you call a pro.
    In most of the cases, you’ll locate either a burnt terminal (replace merely with high temp nickel plated ones) or an open element, and either of these are well within the capacities of a handy homeowner.
