Question about GE Profile 30" Free-Standing 5 Burner Self Clean Gas Range with Warming Drawer, JGB908 Kitchen Range
Dear Sir, Simply put, the reason why an element can short out the clock/eoc/digital display is because unlike most other electronics, elements on a range work off a higher voltage. 240 volts. that's why the breaker in your basement is a double breaker. the element normally has 120 volts to it at all times, and when you press bake on your clock or turn your oven on, another set of 120 volts goes to the other side of the element, creating that warm red glow on the element and allowing your oven to heat. if the element blows out and shorts to the chassis of the oven, you risk damaging any other electrical componenet. As this may seem not fair, it's better than encasing the element in something, shorting out and causing a huge electrical fire. When the element shorts out and there is no ground for the current to follow, it's just like welding some metal together and very dangerous.

If you had a power surge then the resistors on the board cannot handle it. i am no electronics expert however i am a range expert and usually it happens when 1 you live in a very rural area and have frequent power surges.. 2 get struck by lightning.. 3 may have a miswired outlet.
