Display intermittant for few weeks, now no display or oven control

My display was not functioning a few weeks ago. After pushing a few buttons or turning on a burner, then the display would lite up and allow me to use the oven, clock, timer, etc.

However nowadays I have no display at all, not even after the other tricks that worked before; now I have no display, clock, timer, or oven control... I'm not sure if it's simple wiring or maybe I need a new control panel/ display assembly. I would hate to spend $100+ on the display assembly when only a wire is bad.

Should I buy the repair manual and/ or display? Please help. Any advice is appreciated.

Real easy trouble shoot, check the wiring diagram out and find where the line voltage goes into the board. if you have voltage to the board and no display it is very likely a bad board also make sure you have ground pathway from the board. you can have voltage to the board but if no ground pathway then the board will not work. a cheapo meter from sears etc. will work

The oven won't turn on. We are unable to set the clock either. The display flickers but doesn't display.

There are lots of different timers on fisher and paykal The last one I reset was a few weeks ago it involves pressing 2 buttons at the same time I think it was the oven on and oven off buttons but I am not sure You will know when you have pressed the right 2 buttons the display will stop flickering set the clock time using the up down arrow buttons The auto light should not be on if it is press the manual button Regards Geoff Stove Recyclers

I have a new control panel that was just put in 2 weeks ago. I pressed the button start to long & the "Loc" came up on the display & it won't go off no matter what button I push. I've...

Did you replace the panel yourself? If it was a repairman it should be under warranty. Anyway I would think that after the supply has been turned off overnight the timer would reset itself. If that doesn't work and you don't want to keep mucking around with control panels and you can do without the electronic clock the control panel can be easily bypassed by a repairman. This will then enable manual oven operation.

Oven controller not functioning

9. The time of day does not display on my electronic oven control. If I push the CLOCK pad on the control panel the time will display for a few seconds and then it goes blank again.
  • On many ranges with electronic controls the time of day display can by turned off or on by holding the CLOCK keypad down for 15 seconds.
    Push and hold the CLOCK keypad. The time will appear for a few seconds, and then disappear and finally it will reappear and beep. Release the keypad and the time should continue to display. Follow this same procedure to turn the time display off.
