Question about General Electric Profile PGS908 Range
Power supply in Brazil is not universal over the entire country. Your range was built for 120 volt, 60 Hertz power supply. If you are in some areas, you may not have the proper voltage available. 127 V found in states of Bahia, Paran? (including Curitiba), Rio de Janeiro, S?o Paulo and Minas Gerais (though 220 V may be found in some hotels). Other areas are 220 V only, with the exception of Fortaleza (240 V).
Brazil does use 60 Hetz, but if you are in an area which only supplies 220 or 240 volts, you would need some type of adapter to convert that to 120 volts for your gas range. If you connected to the higher voltage, you may have irreversably damaged the electronic control, requiring control replacement, before connecting to the proper (120 volt) supply. I would expect 127 volts to operate your range, but if the voltage varied up from that, it could damage the control. Even in the US, voltage variations of 108 to 125 are rather common.
