Question and Answers

Q:

range model # 79091042400 clock will set but nothing will work no oven no broiler no cook top

A:

Your symptoms point to a voltage supply problem. The control will work if only the L1 leg of 240 volt power is supplied to the range. It will not heat if that second leg of 120 volt power is missing. I recommend that you check the house circuit breaker or house fuses for the range first. If the house breakers or fuses are okay, then you could have a problem with that range outlet or the wiring. You can unplug the range and check the wiring at the terminal block on the back of the range. That wiring is shown in your installation guide. Here is a link for that installation guide in case you need it: Installation Instructions . Page 4 shows the wiring on that terminal block. Check the outlet cord for damage. If you find no problems with those issues, then you can check the electrical outlet for the range using a volt/ohm meter. The diagram in the image below shows the voltage that you should measure at that outlet. NOTE: You should only measure this live outlet voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely check it. Wear proper safety equipment (electrical safety gloves and safety goggles) when checking that live outlet voltage . If you do not have the 240 volts at the outlet, I recommend that you have an electrician fix that problem.

If you have the proper voltage at the outlet, then you could have a bad outlet cord or an internal wiring failure in the range.

These tips may help you resolve this range heating problem. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.
