Barb, turn the circuit breaker all the way to the off position, then back
on. Check the stove. If its a relatively new installation, there will be a
large outlet on the wall behind the stove. With a proper tester you could
check for 240 volts at the outlet, which if you have, you would call the
appliance repair and if not or you can't tell, call an electrician
As someone noted, you need 240V to operate the heating elements and only
120V for what is working. They are supplied by the same circuit, but it is
possible that one may be out without the other one out. Go back to the
circuit breaker box and find the TWO breakers or the one that controls two
circuits and turn it off and back on. I suspect that is where the problem
With luck that will be all there is. However normally breakers don't
just trigger. There may be another problem.
An appliance tech can check it out for you.
Could be either or both. *Sounds* like the 120 volt stuff is working
but the 240 volt stuff is not.
