    The only thing that seems to be working is the Clock. No burners, no oven. The 220v is working just fine. Is there a master internal capasitor\breaker that may need replacing or resetting?

There are no known errors like that for the control so i am thinking the control is damaged.

Wolf ovens getting err message after power outage

I had a Wolf 30F wall oven with a similar problem
after power outage. It wouldnt stop beeping with error message related
to temperature control. My solution was to turn power of at circuit
panel, then reset by pressing and holding the clear button for 5

Also note: in my case I had to close the display
before switching the panel off. When I tried to the reset process with
the panel showing, it wouldn\'t reset.

To reset other
various parts of the control panel Instructions said:

Time-of-Day Clock

Immediately after the oven is installed, set
the 12-hour clock to the current time of day. It may need to be reset
after a prolonged power failure. The clock is visible on the control
panel during all modes. If the upper oven timer is set, the clock will
not be visible in the upper oven control panel display.


1) Touch CLOCK.

2) Touch number pads to
set current time of day.

3) Touch CLOCK or ENTER to start


The time-of-day clock can be
changed from a 12-hour clock to a 24-hour clock. After the clock has
been set, touch TEMPERATURE for three seconds, touch CLOCK, and then
touch ENTER. Follow the same sequence to change back to the standard
12-hour clock setting.

oven can be changed from Fahrenheit (°F) temperature to Celsius

Tried to change the oven light bulb and when I took it out it said poof and now the whole range is dead. Electricity is going to the unit, but nothing works... not even the clock. Is it gone or maybe...

The first thing I would check, considering you've confirmed there's power at the outlet the oven is plugged into, unplug it. Next, remove the metal panel that is behind the "head," (behind the clock and the controls.) Look for a blown fuse on the circuit board in there. Chances are, that may be all that is wrong. At least it's a cheap fix, and your local Radio Shack should have a replacement fuse for you.

I hope this helps! :)

GE spacemaker Power goes off and clock needs resetting

Try going to the breaker box and shutting off the power to the microwave for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn back on and set the clock. This fixed my clock and turntable both. Apparently turning off the power resets the software in the clock.

GE Range Spectra oven not working

F2 is an indication of an oven temperature sensor problem. Usually this is a problem with the oven sensor itself, or the relay contacts on the Electronic Range Control (ERC) board. If you had a close lightening strike, I would suspect that the contacts on the ERC are probably bad. It probably wouldn't hurt to replace the oven sensor as well. I hope this helps you.

Surface units working, oven is not. clock panel is blank.

Sounds like your going to have to replace the control board. Sometimes after a power failure there's a surge when the electric comes on and this can fry a control board.
