Re: oven display and oven are not working AT ALL

My Amana stove had the same symptom. I repaired the EOC myself. I have twenty years in comsumer electrics repair. The problem was that three small capacitors were getting weak and needed to be replaced. The parts were $1.50. Sending to a place in Texas that rebuilds EOCs would have cost over $100. New clock units are over $200.
If you have a friendly local repair shop, they may be able to replace the bad capacitors. If you can't get the clock removed from the stove, you may need to call someone for some help.

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.

The electronic timer/clock must be working and be in manual mode for the oven to work. Try turning the power off and on and see if it resets. If is doesn't you might need a new timer unit. If you don't need the timer and clock it can be easily by-passed at the rear by joining the active and load wires and the oven will work.

It sounds like a bad control. Before replacing the control, make sure it is not in Sabbath Mode, Child lock and if all else fails try resetting the control to factory defaults. If none of these work then replace the clock/control part number 5701M827-60. This part runs about $175.00

I attached a cut out of the service manual, to show how to reset the locks and factory defaults

Oven does not work

Open the control panel to expose the clock/oven control.
With a volt meter verify incoming voltage to the clock control.
Check all wires for good contact.
If it still does not work replace the clock.

Remember to unplug the range to check the wires for good contact.

Demo Mode

press and hold the mode button for more than five seconds. Then use the knob to scroll to "Default". This sets the stove to normal operation.
