Question about Whirlpool GS470LEM Gas Kitchen Range

2 Answers

The electronic oven control my whirlpool GS470LEM is blank.

Oven and burner was working OK last week. Then our subdivision had a power outage for about 4 to 5 hours a few days ago. I seldom use the oven so I didn't notice until 3 days later that the electronic oven control panel is blank. No time, no clock nothing works on the buttons. So basically, I can't use the oven. The burner and igniter works so I dont think its a power issue? Please help. What is wrong with it?

If the buttons beep.. and your oven light still turns on when the oven door is open.. this a text book control board failure.

Top burners work, but oven and broiler won't come on and control panel won't light up.

I need the make/model number to help you accurately. However, from what you're describing, it sounds like the oven control board is blown out. The oven is totally separate from the top burners on a lot of units. You will have a separate burner control knob and then a panel for all the oven controls. The fact that the top burners work indicates 240v is getting into the range. Did you have a power outage recently? Usually about 3-4 weeks after the event things happen or *don't* happen with electronic appliances. This is because surge-damaged chips start to fail after a period of time if the unit wasn't blown out immediately by the power restoration. When the power company restores power, there is usually a large surge of current and it overwhelms the computer boards in microwaves, ovens, dishwashers, washers, dryers, refrigerators, etc. Also, I've seen bug infestations where the board is blown out due to the critters crawling across the live boards--if the clock is on, there is power on that board. I hope I helped you!

We had a power outage today during the self cleaning process of our double oven.. The Electronic Oven Control panel is dead. No lights of any kind. The circuit breaker is ok. Upper door is locked.

Turn the breaker off for 5 minutes. this will reset the system. If you still have no power then it spiked your control board and it's the board that is fried.
