Okay...if the clock assembly appears to be working and the oven light comes on, but nothing else is working, I would double check your input power at the receptacle. You will need to unplug the range and check voltages at L1 to neutral and L2 to neutral. There should be 120VAC on each leg. It sounds like you are missing 120VAC on one side of the receptacle. I believe the clock and oven light will still come on, because they only utilize a portion of the input voltage. The elements, however, require 220VAC. Another way of checking for input voltage is to pull the range out so you can access behind it. Unplug the range and remove the back cover so you can see the terminal board where the power cord is connected. There should be three wires from left to right (BLACK, WHITE, RED). BLACK is L1, RED is L2. There will be 120VAC on each one of these lines when you plug the power back into the receptacle. If you place a meter from L1(BLACK) to NEUTRAL (WHITE), you should have 120VAC. The same is true when you place a meter across L2 (RED) and NEUTRAL (WHITE). If you connect the meter across L1 (BLACK) to L2 (RED) you should have your full 220VAC. If either leg (L1 or L2) is missing, the range elements will not work. If you check in this manner, you not only will be able to confirm whether or not you have proper input power, but you will also be determining whether or not the power cord is good. This may be a simple matter of a loose terminal in the back of the range, or...I have seen where consumers have wired them incorrectly. Check for the following in this order:

1. Double check you breaker to make sure it is not tripped (I know you said you already checked it).

2. Unplug range and check for proper voltage at the receptacle.

3. Remove back cover of range and verify correct wiring of the power cord.

4. With range unplugged, ensure all terminal lugs are properly tightened.

CAUTION: Do not attempt to tighten the terminal lugs with the power cord plugged in. Also, do not attempt to service the receptacle (repair or replace) with the power turned on at the breaker. Votages dangerous to life exists. I hope this information is helpful to you. If you have any questions or concerns, please post back with your comments.

Try just unplugging the unit for about 5 minutes. That will reset the clock and hopefully fix the problem. If not you probably need to replace the clock.

Using oven and there was a pop and it went dead...oven, stovetop burner, clock panel, oven light!


Your element has burnt out. Reset the breaker, and get a new element. You can usually see where it has gone.

Some older stoves have glass fuses hidden behind the front panel.

Heard a loud "Pop" sound, now oven won't work and lost digital display. Stove and lights (even in oven) all work fine. Breaker did NOT trip btw. Odd.


When my range digital display lights failed everything as you describe happened except the "pop". The display just faded and died. I replaced the display unit (a simple swap out involving pulling the wires one at a time and reconnecting to the new display as I pulled them so as not to connect wrongly). Once done I haven't had a problem since and the display was noticeably brighter. It appears that the display unit only affects the ovens operation for heat control and everything else is on a different circuit which is why your oven light and rings are still operational.

Explosion from what? If this was a gas explosion then you should have a professional look at it. If this was a power supply issue then you will have to replace the power supply board.

My oven


If you don't mind me asking mschampaen, what's exactly happening. Do you have any small little lights on in the front of the oven around the control knobs? Or, a digital display readout somewhere on the oven? A light that goes on when you open the door? Something that indicates there's power getting to the oven. If not, check your circuit breaker in your house electrical panel. It should be a 2 pole, 50 amp. cir. brkr. To reset, turn the brkr. to the off position - then turn it back on. Then go back to your oven and open the door to see if the light comes on. I'm trying to rule out a power problem to your oven first. If this doesn't work, feel free to contact me again. Hopefully, this will do it. Good Luck to you! And let me know if this works for you, otherwise, we'll go to Plan B...:) - Jim
