Oven Frustration

Yesterday I went to the store and bought some sliced turkey breast for making a sandwich for dinner. I got home and whipped up a quick Ciabatta dough using the Jason's Ciabatta recipe on this site. After letting it rise I formed the dough and started the second rise. At this point I turned on my oven to pre-heat it. After the alloted time I open the oven to put the loaves in only to discover there was no heat when I opened the door. Long story short had to throw away the dough for two perfectly good loaves of Ciabatta and now have to pay a repair person to find out what the heck is wrong with my oven. Sorry just venting because it was so frustrating, I really wanted a turkey sandwich on Ciabatta and by the way I was so frustrated that I threw out the dough before I came to the realization "Hey I own a BBQ"!!! I'm an idiot sometimes.

I've fixed my fridge twice and oven once using the site below.  You can read all you want on the forums, but you can only post if you "donate".

You should be able to glean some easy troubleshooting tips to figure out if its the control board(timer), oven elements, or something else.

If your stove top still works, you can ALWAYS steam bread like the Chinese do :) It won't be Ciabbatta, but it will be edible! Of course, you have a BBQ, but for those of us who don't, steaming bread should be just find :)
