I'd try gettin off the power, wait for some time (say 30/60 min. just for giving time to power source capacitors so they can discharge themselves) and power again with one button pressed and holded por mor than 5 seconds before releasing it. This used to be standard resseting/reprogramming procedure for embedded PLC electronics systems. I guess you'd have to try with each of the buttons and even holding the two more distant ones (an old trick deviced to avoiding the chance of an involuntary/accidental reset.)
Meanwhile is usefull if you post with your request Brand, Model, Year and purchase date.

My oven is about 10-15 years old and I cannot reset the clock after the power has been disconnected.

Hello. I need the model number to help you accurately and provide part numbers for your particular unit. Was the power turned off by you or was it a power outage(caused by lightning, construction, etc). If the power went out due to an outage, the main board might very well have been damaged. Power interruptions are notorious for blowing out or damaging circuit boards in ovens, microwaves, dishwashers, washers, dryers...the list is almost endless. Normally, the power going out doesn't do the damage--it's the restoring of the power(and the accompanying current surge) that is the culprit. If a board has been damaged by a current surge, if it wasn't knocked out completely immediately, 3-4 weeks after the event is the usual time when symptoms start appearing--caused by weakened electronic chips on the circuit boards starting to fail.

We had power outage and now oven won't turn on

Did you check your breaker? If it's not the breaker, your oven might have suffered form a power surge. Call your elctrician or kitchen repair service, probably you have some quite sever electric circuit burnout, or maybe it's just a tuse?

Oven is two weeks old. Town had a power outage we reset at breaker but still just beeps once and nothing happens

power outages cause power surges when the power comes back on
this surge generally manages to fry the power/control board
I suggest that you get the services of the service centre to come out and check it out.

How can I get my oven temperature to come on? A power outage caused the "lock" light to flash and no temp is appearing.

Are you sure that you have 220 volts to the oven. It is possible for a breaker to go bad and conduct power only on one leg and some things on the appliance will still work.
Electronic controls on ovens can be damaged by power surges caused by lightening strikes. That could be the problem but after looking at the circuit diagram of the panel it doesn't look like there are electronics that should be damaged by a surge.

I have an Amana AOES3030 - we had a power outage and now the only button on the control panel that responds is "oven cancel". The clock is running and where the temperature shows when cooking...


Before doing anything else, turn off the power at the circuit breaker and leave it off for a few minutes... then turn the power back on and it should start up again and be okay...

If this does not fix it then the control board is fried...from the power surge when the power went out...

The electricity went off while cooking and when it came back on, the oven display reads "off" and wont allow us to resume cooking

try turning power of to the unit at the breaker box for 5 minutes,, if still having problems after turn power back on, i hate to tell this is common after power outages when the power comes back on as u might know the initial jolt will sometimes blow electronics,, and guess what allot of these wall ovens have touchpads and electronic control boards ... i tthink u might have blown ur control board

I have a ' Firenzi ' electric oven which has ceased to function after a recent power cut. The word ' STOP ' appears on the display. Can you help? Regards Norman Dayton

HI. This will occur when a surge has entered the unit, due to the power outage. Normally, there will be a power surge when the power is re-introduced to the home circuits after a brief outage. This will damage most unprotected electronics in this situation. The most vulnerable area in the unit will be the main control board. I would advise to try a hard rest. You can initiate this by simply shutting down the appropriate circuit breaker, or unplugging the unit for 5 minutes. Once the 5 minutes have passed, kindly re- introduce power to the unit, and try to run a baking cycle. If the word stop, or PF illuminates on the display, this will confirm that the surge has damaged the board. It must be replaced, in this case.

A few days ago, there was a power outage at my home/neighborhood. After the electricity came back ( after 30 minutes ) ...the digital clock ( control panel) on my oven set at LOCK and I cant open my oven...

Sounds like when the power came back on the surge burned out some electrical coponents in the control board. I would suggest taking it to the repair shop.

If there was a power surge when the power went out or came back on, it could have fried the controller.

Oven won't work after power cut.

The power outage may have been a result of a power surge or included one. Check the surge protection, breakers or fuses, most likely found inside control panel. Of course turn power off to stove before opening up the panel. Breakers should be pushed all the way off before being pushed to the on position.
