Wire burnt off bake element
« on: July 23, 2012, 09:20:14 AM »

Whirlpool Range Model RF361PXKQ1
The wire to the bake element burnt off, shorted out and tripped the house breaker for the range.
I repaired the wire to the bake element and have 240V going to the range again, but I can't get the clock to work now.
Could there be another wire that is burnt off that I have not found yet?

If your clock has 120 volts going to it and it don't work then the clock has been damaged and will need to be replaced.

Your model range uses clock part # 4453711

Another option would be to see if you could have the clock repaired by someone like
