Yes power to stove, cook top ignites and works fine. The panel went blank during a self clean mode. Yes I heard it is actually called the self ddestruct mode, so won't use it again.

SOURCE: Range goes into lock out mode
I have experienced this with a Maytag model before. What I was told by the technical assistance folks, is that fluctuations in power coming from the line voltage being fed into the home, electrical storms, or even ham radio (high power RF) operating in the area, can cause some electronics to appear to have problems when they don't. The theory is that these circuit boards are so sensitive that even the slightest noise or interference on the line voltage coming in can cause the board to go into a lock out mode. I was able to clear the problem I had by resetting the computer. There is an actual procedure for this if you haven't figured that out already. If you haven't figured out how to reset the unit, you may need to call the technical support department for your model to see if they can provide you with better answers. I hope this sheds some light on this problem for you.

I'm afraid you may have a blown Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. The EOC controls all the functions of the oven. The surface elements are controlled by individual infinite switches behind each control knob.. That's why the surface elements all work, but the oven does not. A replacement EOC can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number and you will find it under the "Control Panel Parts" heading as item number 12. There are several listed, based upon the color you need (White, Biscuit, and Black). This is a very simple repair that any do-it-yourselfer can accomplish if you wish to perform this on your own. All you have to do is UNPLUG the appliance and remove the back panel of the console to access.
Before assuming the EOC is defective, however, inspect the board to see if it has a fuse on it. I do not have a wiring diagram to confirm. Some of these boards do have fuses and that's all that it may take to repair it. However, if the board shows signs of burned components, replace it. NOTE: Check for any loose connectors to the board as well.
I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have questions and/or require additional assistance.

I have the same problem intermittently on my Super Cap 465. After reading the following quote from another site, "There have been cases where radio waves, electronic signals and sometimes something as strange as dimmers in lights have caused some weird problems with some computer panels in stoves like these", I tried turning off lights that might be on the same circuit and wouldn't you know it, the oven igniter circuit worked.

Hi I have a whirlpool gold range mdl GJSP 84902 and had replaced the bottom hidden element after finding out it wasn't getting any heat. So replacement took a little figuring out. it ws easy after a removal of screws and pulling out the whole oven casing out fron the front. Anyhow I still don't get enough heat generate from the bottom element, what other cause are there. checked fuses wiring all is connected HELP ME PLEASE !!!!! thank you Paul
