The knob that controls the BROIL - OFF - BAKE function appears to not be "catching" and the stove is not able to turn on to bake or broil. Is this the way a switch normally just "dies" or might it be another issue? Stove top works just fine. I did not purchase this range, but it is from the dials age and not the digital age. All advice is welcome. Thank you.

Hi,

How is it not "catching"....not clicking any more when turned? Or "not catching" just means the oven is not coming on?

or might it be another issue?
Oven selector switch, oven temp control, wiring to and from these switches ( some wires might even burn off ), thermal fuse, both bake and broil elements are bad ( having both elements quit at once is rare ).
