I have an old kitchen with old appliances. The oven has suddenly died, and I realized I have no idea what to do about it.

I think the stove/oven are around 30 years old. Everything's electric. Tonight I turned on the oven, and it heated for about 3 minutes, and then there was a fizzing sound, and it stopped heating. The stove burners still work. I don't think it's a heating element problem -- the oven has two, one at the top and one at the bottom, and previously when one has gone out the other still works.
I don't know how to fix, well, pretty much anything, and I have no one to help me, so my [stupid] question is, who do you call for a busted oven? The electrician? Some kind of contractor?
