Ok your problem is likely the battery that keeps up the clock while the computer is turned off. Luckly in most cases it is also a cheap and easy fix that I can tell you how to do so you don't have to see me down at the shop where my boss will charge you 30 bucks. Ok what you are looking for is some coin cells like the kind that you have in your watch. They maybe covered with a blue(most likely, but not always) plastic and have two wires coming out of them to the motherboard. On the motherboard will be a socket that the receptical at the end of the wires plugs in to. If there is not do not try to unsolder the wires this is a multi-layered board and you will short it out. The next type that you may run into is one that is held on the motherboard if it is easly removed, remove it (The ones that are not easy to remove have been soldered there and the contacts that hold them will actually move when you try to move the battery) however if the contacts don't move like in your watch. then just push it out and you can obtain a new battery at a computer store. One that is a little more technical than Staples. Staples is a great store I just don't get my computer batteries there

Elements work but both ovens and clock face are off


Reset breaker or unplug and restart stove. Open back of stove to clock face and make sure the harnesses are tightly fitted to clock board. You could even remove and reinstall the harnesses to the clock board.
If able, check for 120v to clock. If clock is getting power but not lighting up, replace clock.
You did not say whether the clock controls the oven; ie. oven does not work when clock is off. if so, replace clock. If not, ignore it unless you want to know the time from that clock.

GE Wall Oven Model # JKP07G0D2BG - The clock has quit working. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


I assume the display for the clock/timer is now blank. If the oven is still working the only thing you are missing is the clock. If you can't do without it you will need a new clock.
Most of the time the clock/timer stops working it affects the operation of the oven, the oven won't work. If this is the case you will need a new timer unless you can do without the clock/timer. If so a repairman should be able to bypass the clock with ease so that the oven will operate without the clock/timer.

The clock is most likely dead, but can be refurbished at a decent price by www.subaru-clock.com. If you email "Dr.Clock" (as he calls himself) he may be able to assist you with some removal tips. This "dead" clock condition is very common in the Camry, Corolla, Matrix lines.
