Hi, My electrician hooked up a new house electric panel, accidentaly hooked up the oven to 240 volts. It has since been hooked up to the proper voltage, however now the electronic display is out, will not come back on, the house fuse is good and replugged the oven outlet in to no avail. Also, the oven light works, so electric is functioning, no control panel though.
How can I fix this??
Thanks or your help. Where can I find a replacement board - GE store? Is there a chance this is just a blown fuse and not a need for a replacement board? Anywhere I can find directions/diagrams of this or more detailed instructions - just trying to be careful and not inflict further damage.

Re: Oven Control Out - Blown Fuse?
If this is a total gas range then it wouldn't hook up to 240. Check to see if top burners are working. The oven control board only controls the bake/broil. If the bake/broil is the only thing not working and all connections to the board are tight then replace the board.

To my knowledge there is no replaceable fuse in this oven. The safety fuse device would be your house fuse or breaker. What exactly is you oven problem? If it is completely dead-no light or anything the problem would be with the house supply to the oven. If you have some indicator lights, interior light but no heat, that still indicates a power supply problem but only with have of the power or what is called one side of the 240 volt system. Possibly a bad or loose connection.
More than likely you have tripped the house circuit breaker or fuse. If you know where the house fuse box or circuit breaker panel is check to see if either one side of the two 240 fuses is blown or one of the two tied together circuit breakers is tripped. If it is a breaker then shut off both breakers completely and then snap them both on completely or they won't reset. It is rare that an oven has a fuse internally. There can be thermal fuses but they will trip when the temperature is out of range.
This may sound silly, but go check your circuit breaker and flip it completely off and then back on. Sometimes it does not completely trip and your clock only needs 120 volts to work which you have, but the heating coils need 240 volts. If you have an older house that has a fuse panel instead of circuit breakers you could have a blown fuse.
If you have power to the stove as in the oven light works and the clock works but the burners and oven will not work you only have 120 volts coming to the stove. The stove requires 240 volts for the burners and oven to work. Check the service panel for a blown fuse. There will be 2 fuses in the fuse holder. One of them is blown. If that is not the case then one of the wires has come loose either in the service panel or in the outlet behind the stove. Use a multimeter to check the input voltage at the outlet.
Hi, sounds like your oven is a 240 volt electric. One of your fuses is still blown. 240 volts requires 2 hot legs and obviously you have only one. When you turn on a burner, it completes the circuit to your light. Bottom line, you only have 120 volts to your oven, check the breakers or fuses. Good luck!
Sounds like you are only getting 120 volts instead of 240 volts. Either a house electical problem or wiring in range. First go to your breaker and turn it off and on three times and give it a little extra push each time you flip it. ( You can actually flip a breaker off and on without resetting a blown breaker if you doni't push it all the way off and all the way on. If the breaker throws itself off do not reset it. You have an elecrical short in your house or range. If resetting the breaker does not work then you need to test for 240 volts coming into the range. We don't recommend you do any electical testing unless you know what you are doing with electicity. If you have 240 volts going to the range then unplug your range and remove the backing panel off the back of the range. Look for burned wiring or terminal blocks. If there is nothing obvious then you need to know how to read a wiring schematic and use a electical tester to go any farther. Let me know if this helps. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
Hi You must check the main power wires
where they enter the range at theT-block,
sometimes they can burn off. Also check house fuses (or breaker) that supplies
power to the range. Checking with avolt meter,you should
get 240 volts between the black and red main power wires. The range receptacle
and power cord can also burn and fail. Also check the fuse/circuit breaker and check to see if power is getting to the range/oven. If anything
does not turn on then check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the
range/oven, gets burned and so breaks the connection. Then you may have to
replace the power cord to the range/oven, and the terminal block that the wire
is attached to. There may be a broken or
burned wire at the back of the range/oven. If you repair any of the wires, use
only proper appliance-grade wire and wire connectors. Please do accept the solution if the issue is
resolved or else revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
I suggest checking the voltage going to elements. If there is no current, trace wires. Not exactly sure if there is a fuse/relay on your model. If there is current, than the elements may have gone bad.
