Wall Oven : Won't work at all

If your oven has a digital display and the control panel doesn't light up, reset the house circuit breaker for the wall oven if it's tripped. If the oven has power but the control is dead, you may need to replace the electronic control board.

In an oven that uses dial controls, a tripped house circuit breaker or a failed oven control thermostat can prevent the oven from working at all. Reset the house circuit breaker for the wall oven if it's tripped. If the oven has power, you may need to replace the oven control thermostat.

The electronic oven control (EOC) board governs the timing and execution of oven functions such as baking and broiling. It's usually in the control console and often has a digital clock on the front of its housing.
