I have an electric Whirlpool stove, about 10 years old. Recently, after the oven has been on for about one hour, the clock starts to blink, the time changes to 55:00, it starts to beep and then the numbers disappear and it says 'door'. Then it shuts down.
A friend told me to unplug it and then plug it back in, this way it will reset the clock.
I have done that, and it resets it, however, the sae thing happens again when the oven is on for a while.
I have checked the stove fuses, they look fine - including the one for the oven.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I was having this problem and it was because I had tripped the breaker. Reset the breaker (box Inside your home) and try that, However, there is probably an underlying electrical problem that should be fixed asap. I live in an older remodeled mobile home that isn't equipped to handle a lot of appliances going at the same time. Try to make sure you aren't pulling so much power when you use the stove, ex: TV, microwave, oven, stove, all running at the same time.
the solution that the recommended appliance reapir person told me for my whirlpool electric range oven not coming on and a display of E1 F1 was to replace the digital control center with new one for $425, this is after an $89 service call to just tell me what was wrong. Since the range cost only $645 I will probably instead learn to bake with the convection part of teh microwave /convection oven I got last year for $295, and hope the obsolescence engineer at whirlfool has a burnt thanksgiving turkey and fallen cakes. this problem w/ the oven not working occurred while I was on vacation and the power company had a light out problem in our neighborhood then I guess sent a power surge back on and did my six year old oven in. Should have kept my old simple gas range.
IF IT HAS A MECHANICAL CLOCK, THE START AND STOP TIMES NEED TO BE SET, THE OVEN CONTROL SET TO CLEAN, AND THE SELECTOR SWITCH SET TO CLEAN.
TO CLEAN NOW SET START TIME TO THE TIME ON THE CLOCK AND THE STOP TIME TO 3 HOURS LATER.
LOCK THE DOOR. IT SHOULD START AND THE CLEAN LIGHT SHOULD ILLUMINATE, OR OVEN ON LAMP SHOULD LIGHT.
IF IT STILL DOESN'T WORK, THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE CLOCK OR THE CONTROLS OR THE LOCK ASSEMBLY.
A WIRING DIAGRAM WOULD BE BEST FOR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM.
Most electric range ovens are controlled by the electronic oven control (EOC). If your oven is not working and there is no display on the clock, more than likely you have a bad EOC. The board is not serviceable and has to be replaced. I hope this helps.
