That link for a previous answer that Barbara H. posted in the above response describes a similar problem. That situation was resolved by unplugging the range for a few minutes. That reset the control boards on the range and it began working normally. You can try that tactic on your range.

If that does not help, then you can unplug the range and remove the back panel behind the console. Check ribbon wire harness connections between the control panel and the clock control board. I provided a wiring diagram for the range in the image below. This information may help you check that issue. If the wiring connections are okay, you may need to replace that control panel and/or the clock control board. You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

It may be difficult to determine the exact cause of this problem on your own. I recommend that you have a service technician diagnose and repair the range unless you can resolve the problem using the information shown above. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.

Thanks very much for the information Kyle. I did remove power overnight to no avail (now I just have a power failure warning flashing that I can't clear, but the clock continues to work). The ribbon cables appear to be properly attached. Ultimately I couldn't figure out whether I needed to replace the Timer Clock (PN 316272700) or the panel (PN 530393522) so I scheduled a service tech. Luckily, I can live without the oven for a few days. Thanks again for your help.

In this situation, I think that having the range serviced by a technician is best. We don't have any advanced technical tests for the key panel on that range that will help you check that component. Let us know if you need more help.
