You can get a pretty decent stove for around $500. I'd first do some trouble shooting on it first though to make sure it'* f'd for good.

An electrical contractor won't fix a stove... He'll verify the incoming line and charge you service call for ~5min of work.

An appliance repair person is what you need.

Or, do what corvettecrazy suggested. Remove the power source, and visually inspect for damage. It'* a good, free place to start.

yes, do a visual first. I once called out a repairman for my fridge because it was making an awful sound. He pulled out the fridge and a found a piece of paper stuck in the fan.
