check that the fan mounting screws or bolts are in place and tightened

Same problem here. Pressing hard on the fascia worked for a bit, but now fails to work.

The thing I've noticed is that the whole section above the grill gets extremely hot when the grill is used, i.e. the panel with all the dials and the clock. I don't remember this always being the case, so I'm wondering if some heat dispersal mechanism (a fan perhaps?) has failed over the years... effectively causing the clock's electronics to get cooked. You've had three clock modules in five years?!

Hi There
I have found this for to read and hope this will help you. Let me know how it goes.
The clock stopped The non-electronic clocks on electric range/ovens often don't last long. That's a problem, because the clock is essential to the self-cleaning and timed-bake features. Clocks are rarely repairable--you usually just have to replace them. Electronic clocks have been more reliable. But, they're often integrated with several other features of the range/oven. So when the clock develops a defect, it often renders the entire oven and broiler inoperative. The electronic clock is usually integrated with a circuit board, and the touchpad that holds the buttons you press is often a separate component. If your electronic clock is defective, you may need to replace the touchpad, circuit board, or both. Although these may be expensive, they aren't usually very complicated to replace.
Thank you for writing to fix ya.
Best Regards Richard

there may have been a nut welded in the roof that has worked itself loose,or more likely you have stripped the thread.

try using a self-tapping screw to hold it in place

Hey there, Shouldn't be too difficult. Just two nuts to remove. If unsure about reconnecting wiring, draw yourself a little diagram clearly indicating the colours. Let me know if you are having further problems.

Mostly when you can light up the pits without the clicker, then that means that there is no power on the stove at all. Check the power cord running to it (which generate the sparks) and see if there is any damage to it.
