Whoa if you had a definite power surge the electronics may be cooked but you can try this --- disconnect the lead/plug from the receptacle for a couple of days then plug it back in and see if this helps--- I don't know if there's a fuse or not and/or if it's readily accessible---you can check your operating manual for added info on this or check on line but there's one thing I know is that electronic ignition systems (stoves, heaters, furnaces, boilers) have to be grounded---you can not connect a three way plug to a 2 way adapter---with out the ground it makes the electronics go coo coo---especially with a power surge---electronics have to be grounded--electronics are very unstable without a ground that's the best I can do for now good luck

Testimonial: "Thanks for your help. After taking a voltage meter to the board, it has power going in but not being distributed through the board. So i believe the transformer blew."

    Well I didn't know or think that you could get into it that far but--- I said but--- transformers usually can take a hit -- the electronics on the other hand can't--I'm curious of what you read at the secondary side of the trans--depending on the system usually for the electronics operating voltage is 5 volts DC so if you set your meter to AC and tried to read it might not read unless you were testing directly after the transformer---some circuit boards are 2 to 4 layers thick with circuits in between the layers which makes it hard to test---if you want to go farther there's a tool out there called a logic meter probe that can help you diagnose a board/chips---this is just a shot in the dark good luck

Why wont my oven work after a fuse was blown in my home?

There isn't more information listed about the brand and type, so I'll give you a couple of options that could be a problem. In most newer ovens, the burner is lit by a ceramic heating element that glows when the oven is about to come on. If it is cracked (coincidental from blowing the fuse, not related unless the fuse blew during an earthquake or when the oven was on), the circuit won't turn on the gas or make any noise. It may also have been getting old and weak, and if the oven was moved to troubleshoot the problem, it might fail from the movement. They do go bad eventually. You should order a spare online if you can find the part number because if you have to buy it from the appliance store at a moment's notice, you will pay a LOT more for it.
That's the most likely thing and easiest to fix. The next guess is that the oven switch itself (controller board if electronic) could have been fried by whatever blew the fuse (power surge, lightning etc).

Power surge fried Frigidare FEB24S2ASB

The electronic oven control has gone bad. The repair is a lot less expensive than the replacement of the whole stove. Part number is 903091-9051 at about 165.00 retail. You can fix rather than replace whole stove. Hope this helps.

We have a Hotpoint RB787 Electric Kitchen Range. We experienced electrical issues/ power surge and now the oven part of the stove does not work. top still works and only indicators for the top burners...

you will need to replace the control board that contains the clock readout,any power surges ruins these electronics instantly,this can be replaced by removing the rear cover on the back of the unit and remove screws securing the electronic module

These electronic controls are very sensitive to power surges. I am afraid your control is now bad and must be replaced.
There are no fuses or reset buttons.

I believe the oven it has a power surge protector within the appliance. Try to unplug it and plug it back in. It should solve the problem.

Oven burnout

The oven is controlled by an Electronic Range Control (ERC). This is the clock assembly on the range. The surface elements are powered by infinite switches and do not go through the ERC. That explains why the clock assembly is dead, your oven does not work, but your surface elements do. You need to replace the ERC. If you can provide me with a model number (located near the oven door or bottom drawer opening on most ranges, on the back of the console on some) I can determine what type of ERC you need and how much it might cost you. Post back with comments and let me know if I can be of further assistance. I hope this helps you.

Oven won't work after power cut.

The power outage may have been a result of a power surge or included one. Check the surge protection, breakers or fuses, most likely found inside control panel. Of course turn power off to stove before opening up the panel. Breakers should be pushed all the way off before being pushed to the on position.
