Periodically the stove will lose power when there has been no power interruption in the house. Sometimes the the power will be off for a minute or so, then the clock will start flashing. If a a burner or oven is being used, they will go off also. The oven will have to be reset. You also hear a buzzing/arching sound when this occurs. I think I need to replace the clock/timer electronic control, but would like your opinion before I spend over $165.00. Thank you.
ANSWER Hello Wrngwae1,
Before you replace anything you should check the electrical connections where the "pigtail" (range cord) connects to the terminal block. This is where most problems with a complaint of both the surface and the bake compartment originate. If it is good, check the plug for burned spots on the prongs. If there is a burned spot, you can sand the burn off but the receptacle will require replacement to prevent a fire hazard. Let us know if we can assist you further as I'm confident you will locate the issue. Anytime there is an audible sizzle, the problem can be seen and testing isn't necessary.
