The missus was cooking supper the other night in the oven and when she tried to turn the broiler on to crisp up the frozen fish and chips, the broiler did not come on.  When she tried to switch back to oven...no heat. 

The oven control panel seems to be functioning normally and indicates it is on but there is no heat.  I turned the breaker off for a few minutes to see if anything on the controls would re-set.  No luck.  I checked the oven temperature sensor and it indicates about 1100 ohms so I'm guessing it is ok.  Is there a thermal cut-out switch on this unit, and if so where?  Any other suggestions?  The oven is about 1 1/2 years old.  Thanks a bunch.

there is a high limit and a thermal limiter on your range, but i cant get a diagram to tell you exactly where they are. 1 should be located on the back of the range between the bake and broil elements..it should be resetable

Yes, I finally found the little begger at about 10:30 last night.  It was about two inches above the power cord terminal block, just to the right of centre.  It had a little red square button in the centre so I pushed on it.  I couldn't feel any click or anything but it must have done the trick as both oven and broiler now work. 

Now I'm wondering why?  Is the thing starting to fail or is it being exposed to too high of temperature?  I guess time will tell.

Thanks a million for the speedy response.  I didn't expect anyone would be getting back to me so quickly:D

Was she using the covection bake or broil when it stopped working? See if the convection fan is coming on for both the convection bake and broil.

No she wasn't using the convection oven...quite frankly, she didn't know about that feature.  I did check those cycles during my initial troubleshooting and the fan does come on during the convection cycles.
