Does it have 2 plugs 110 and a 220

This is the oven spec, so it has to be 220 volts to support that wattage. The oven and broiler are electric and the hob is gas. Best of both worlds. (I am a chef)

    You seem to have a loose connection. This is the first issue I would tackle. Make sure you have proper 240 vac from the supply at the terminal block. Then you need to check l-1 and l-2 against white neutral for 120 vac. The clock needs 120 vac to properly light up. Then check the p1-1 power supply connection for 120 vac. between p1-4 connection neutral . If all this is solid, then double check the p-2 connector (p.c.b.). All pins need to be matched correctly and the pin connections at the jumper harness need to be checked to see if they (one- by- one) have not backed out slightly and making a partial connection. You can use a pick tool to remove the inner tang and remove the wire connector itself individually. Then pry up on the terminal tang and insert it fully back into the connector so it will make a solid pin connection. You will be able to tell if one is bent needing correction. At p-2 on the pcb board, pin # 5 is a brown wire with a non resettable fuse internally with the wire itself. Make sure there is continuity between these 2 -points as the fuse needs to be closed. This jumper goes to the clock p-7 pin connections.

    The oven won't heat on bake

    Hi,You have inspected both the baking and broiler heating elements, and you still can't find a problem with your range/oven parts? Inspect the connections between the heating element and the terminal. You could have a badly connected electric wire, or a burned out electric wire. Range/Oven parts must deal with both voltage and extreme heat, so it's a common problem to have a burned wire from time to time. This is a simple fix and if you check this problem in your initial run of troubleshooting, you may save yourself unnecessary purchases of range/oven parts, etc.

    Also Voltage Check can be the problem.
    Try flipping the breaker off/on slowly a couple times, sometimes you can loose half the line without actually tripping the breaker.
    If this does nothing, check the voltage at the plug
    L1 to L2 should be 240 volts
    L1 to Neutral and L2 to Neutral, both should be 120 volts.
    If OK
    Unplug the unit and check the wires at the terminal strip in the machine to make sure none are loose or burned out
    If OK
    Check the power at the terminal strip.
    Be careful as 240 volts is lethal !!!

    My GE PGS975 DEP1 (GAS RANGE) DIGITAL CONTROLS ARE NOT WORKING. I purchased this brand new gas range in the USA and had it shipped to Brazil. After i installed it and plugged it on every think worked...

    Power supply in Brazil is not universal over the entire country. Your range was built for 120 volt, 60 Hertz power supply. If you are in some areas, you may not have the proper voltage available. 127 V found in states of Bahia, Paran? (including Curitiba), Rio de Janeiro, S?o Paulo and Minas Gerais (though 220 V may be found in some hotels). Other areas are 220 V only, with the exception of Fortaleza (240 V).

    Brazil does use 60 Hetz, but if you are in an area which only supplies 220 or 240 volts, you would need some type of adapter to convert that to 120 volts for your gas range. If you connected to the higher voltage, you may have irreversably damaged the electronic control, requiring control replacement, before connecting to the proper (120 volt) supply. I would expect 127 volts to operate your range, but if the voltage varied up from that, it could damage the control. Even in the US, voltage variations of 108 to 125 are rather common.

    The oven does not work .the bake or broil will not heat .there is power on both sides of the elements

    Power on both sides of the elements. How did you check that? Did you get 120 Volts between either end and neutral? What you need to check is if you have 240 Volts between one end of the element(s) and the other end. If that is what you get, you need (a) new element(s). BTW you need to check this with the element connected.

    It will not operate. The control panel will work but you will have no heat. The top and oven need 220 to actually heat up. The only thing that will work on 120 will be your clock and a warm zone if there's one.

    Wife put the oven on clean cycle last night. This morning the heating element will not turn off, a one inch section glows orange. Turned oven off, put it back on clean, broil and off again, no change.

    You probably just need a new bake element. Many ranges supply 120 volts to one side of the bake element at all times, switching the other side of the 240 voltage to it (and completing a circuit) when it needs to heat. If the element shorts to ground, the 120 volts can heat though a section of the element to the ground. OK, so much for the technical stuff. Turn power off to range. Replace bake element. Re-connect power. If it works, great. If it heat without turning oven "on" now, that would indicate that the electrical contacts in the bake relay on the control board have welded themselves together, necessitating replacing the control board. Let's hope you are not unlucky enough to have had that happen. (sometimes that happens as the result of an element failure)

    Electric oven and stovetop do not work, clock and oven light do.

    Sounds like you are only getting 120 volts instead of 240 volts. Either a house electical problem or wiring in range. First go to your breaker and turn it off and on three times and give it a little extra push each time you flip it. ( You can actually flip a breaker off and on without resetting a blown breaker if you doni't push it all the way off and all the way on. If the breaker throws itself off do not reset it. You have an elecrical short in your house or range. If resetting the breaker does not work then you need to test for 240 volts coming into the range. We don't recommend you do any electical testing unless you know what you are doing with electicity. If you have 240 volts going to the range then unplug your range and remove the backing panel off the back of the range. Look for burned wiring or terminal blocks. If there is nothing obvious then you need to know how to read a wiring schematic and use a electical tester to go any farther. Let me know if this helps. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

    The indicator lights for the burners and the clock work but the burners and the oven do not work. This is a whirlpool range.

    Check the recepticle it is pluged into for 230-240 volts on the outer inlets. You may also have to connect your nuetral wire to the ground wire in your breaker panel and to the unit. The problem is from the power supply. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Burners, oven will not heat, all lights work

    Sounds like you are only getting 120 volts. All heating elements require 240 volts to operate. Start by taking the covers off the back of the range and looking for loose or burnt off wires. Look first at were the range cord connects onto the range. If all OK with range wires, check wires inside range receptacle (where the range cord plugs in) and also the connections on the household circuit breaker or fuses. If you use a meter to test for 240, you may see it, but if a connection is poor, it may not be good enough to supply the required power.
