Hello,

exactly, yes. The circuit board as been affected by the circuit board. The board needs to be replaced for the control panel and clock to work again.

Good luck.

Jenn air svd46800 oven not working


Good Afternoon,
The control boards in your appliance may have failed. There is a display board, part number 71001799 and relay board part number 12001693. Commonly we see transformers on these relay boards fail with power surges. Luckily, we do test and repair these parts. Remanufacturing these controls will save you the high cost of buying new, and each rebuild will come with a 2 year warranty-- which is three times longer than new. Email me if you have any questions! info@fixyourboard.com

Related: F2 E6 on Whirlpool RBD305PDS14 double oven - blank display


Equipment is Whirlpool double oven RBD305PDS14 built-in.  After a very stormy summer 2007, I thought a power surge may have zapped the control board.  Problem initially presented on display as error & fault "E6 F2"; simply pressing "Timer Off" would usually clear this error & fault code.

However, some months later, the display would often go completely blank followed by the beep sequence "short-long-short-short-short" (Morse code: dit dah dit dit dit).  No error & fault code would appear.  Pressing any keypad oven control did not work at all in this condition.  When power was cycled at the breaker panel, the usual "PF" with clock display did not appear.

[TURN OVEN POWER OFF AT BREAKER!!!]

After following the excellent information on "how to remove the control panel" posted in this forum, I first tested the "control panel thermal fuse" (refer to the tech sheet that should be behind the control panel once it is removed).  It showed a closed circuit.

I turned my attention to the "flexible" keypad connector cable (error & fault code "E6 F2" is a keypad or keypad connector problem; again, refer to tech sheet).  The control panel has a board mounted female connector with two tabs that may be gently pulled upward to release the flexible cable.

I cleaned the flexible cable contact area (it seats into the board mounted female connector) carefully with a Q tip and some isopropyl alcohol.  I reinserted the flexible cable and gently pressed down on the two tabs (noted above) on the board mounted female connector.  VERY GENTLY tug on the flexible cable to insure it is gripped by the connector.

After all of this monkey business, I re-mounted the control panel display panel on the oven and restored power.  So far, so good.  After applying power, the "PF" with clock display always appears.  I am able to set the clock and press "Start".  Over functions normally.  The clock displays as normal and I no longer observe the problem I described above.

BTW, I noted the incoming 240V has transient suppression (no surge protection, however).

2 years ago I purchased a Boston micro-system cd /clock radio. It has worked fine but now it shows a slight light when I plug it it to a a power outlet but I try to activate them there is no response...


Thank you for your question.

There is a good chance that this radio got a power surge which may have been caused by the power going out and then when it comes back on, there is a surge. In some cases, a "brown out" does more damage than a surge.

For example, if a telephone pole fell over and the power lines were arcing in your neighborhood, your lights may flicker for several minutes. This can damage many electronic items in your home.

If this clock has a battery backup, try removing the battery and replace it.

If there is no response, you may want to take it to an independent electronics repair person and have him check the power circuit.

Chances are that the circuit board behind the ac power cord will be damaged.

Oven stopped working after big power surge. stove still works but oven will not turn on and nor does digital clock


Both the oven and the clock are controled by the main board. The power surge probably destroyed the main board.

Had a power surge now my oven and clock does not work only the cooktopworks its a kenmore 7909622940 what do i do ?


Unfortunately, I believe the power surge took out your clock assembly. These circuit boards do not handle power fluctuations very well. This is also what controls all your oven features. The surface burners, are controlled by the individual infinite switches on the operator console. So, they use a different power source. This is why the surface burners still work and the oven does not. The only thing you can do at this point is replace the Clock/Timer. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3727366-replacing_control_kitchen_range

The part number for a replacement board is 316452310. The overlay (the plastic preprinted template that is applied to the board) is sold separately (part number 316419306). If the current overlay is still in good shape, it can be peeled off and reused.

You can purchase replacement parts at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing. So, shop and compare.

If you have any questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Keypad/clock went blank


Normally when a power surge lands a direct hit on a non protected circuit board, it will usually fry it completely. you can confirm this by shutting down the power for 5 minutes. if the control doesn't respond after the 5 minutes of no power, this will confirm circuit failure due to the surge and, you will need to replace the board in this case.

Electric surge turned off the clock,oven but the stove top works


The clock and display are leds, right. If you can remove the panel where the board is and gain access to the back of it, look for a fuse, similar to a car fuse. The elements are controlled by manual independent switches, that's why they are working. If there is no fuse, or its still good, look for a burnt wire of some sort back there, as you said a power surge went through it.

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.

Surface units working, oven is not. clock panel is blank.


Sounds like your going to have to replace the control board. Sometimes after a power failure there's a surge when the electric comes on and this can fry a control board.
