GE XL44 Gas Range Clock Display frozen with only an "8"
The digital clock display worked fine when we moved into the house. At some point, the display went blank, and has been for awhile. Today, secured all the breakers in the house to work on an outlet, and when I turned them back on, the clock display is lit up again, this time just with an "8". Pressing the timer and clock buttons, or +/- has done nothing to change it. Any ideas other than buying a new clock display control unit?

Range Setting the Clock and Timer
Non-Electronic Clocks: To set the clock, push the center knob in and turn the clock hands to the correct time. (If the Minute Timer pointer should move also, let the knob out, turn the Timer pointer to OFF.) Digital Clocks: To set the clock, push in the center knob of the Minute Timer and turn Knob in either direction to set the Digital Clock numerals to the correct time.

We see this failure due to two possible problems with the electronic control. Sometimes there is a failure that causes the display to shut off. Other times the display itself goes bad. The first case we can repair. If you send us the board we can check it out. If it is not repairable there is no charge. - www.fixyourboard.com.
you have 1 of 2 problems. your range is either in sabbath mode or your clock control is bad. if you have your model number i can get you directions to see if it is in sabbath mode. unless you have your user manual
The plug on your range may not be completely inserted into the outlet.
Clear all functions and see if the clock unfreezes
After all this, if the clock digits light up, and you still can't use any clock functions, it may be time for a new control panel.
Puzzeled, usually when there is a stuck or shorted keypad there will be an error code. First let's see if we can tell if we are in Centigrade or Ferenhiet. Press the bake and broil button together for 2 or 3 seconds. SF should appear in the display. Press the broil pad again and C or F will be displayed. Toggle to F and press start. See if that was the problem. If not try to increase the speed of the + and - keypads. Press bake and broil together for 2 seconds until SF displays. Press the + keypad increase the speed of the control. It should toggle from 1 to 5, 5 being the fastest. Press start and see if that works. If niether works..then have someone remove the keypad ribbon cable from the control board and clean the ends with an eraser. See if that solves the issue...Catriver..post back and let me know.
