I'm hoping someone can shed light on my dilemma.
The stove was working perfectly before the short, all burners, elements, clock, lights were working.
Last night, my wife plugged in an electric kettle into the left hand side stove outlet. Unfortunately, there was a sheet of aluminum foil on the stove at the time and when she plugged in the kettle she caught the foil and shorted out the stove.
I checked the fuses on top of the stove and the only one that blew was the 15 amp fuse to the stove receptacle which I replaced. I looked in the back of the stove and all the wiring looked good. Everything was in place, no charring as I could see nor could I detect any smell of burnt wiring.
Problems: 1) None of the 4 stovetop burners work.
2) The electronic clock has no power to it, yet when you turn on any of the 4 stove top burner switches the clock turns back on and can be reset to the correct time, but the burner does not work. As you turn the burner switch, there is a point in which the indicator light that is normally on when the burner is working comes on for a second and then goes back out.
3) When the oven is set to convection, the fan starts and the oven elements work, when the oven is set to normal oven, the elements do not work.
4) The oven light which allows you to see inside the oven works fine and the fluorescent light above the switches turns on with no problems.
Do you think the problem lies in the stovetop burner switches or is the problem in the electronic control panel which houses the clock, or is it something else?
Any help as to what else to look at would be appreciated?
The stove itself is at least 10 years old and is a solid workhorse with no problems up to this point.
