What part or parts are defective?

Hello from JA
I am so happy to help you today.
Before we get started, I would like to help us get on the same page so that our interaction will go smoothly.
I might give you an answer immediately, or ask you a question. Either way, we are likely to be in a question and answer format, so you will need to click reply to expert if:
a. You want to add detail.
b. Your question was not fully answered.
c. You want to ask further questions.

Since I am inviting you back to do any of these, do not use a 1 or 2 rating or this will likely NOT help you get a satisfactory answer. It will delay our task, and it tends to be depressing for the expert trying to help you, often right at the beginning of the exchange, before we have accomplished our task.

I know the rating system is somewhat complicated, but you do not have to do a negative rating in order not to pay or to get your deposit back.

In addition, a negative rating only serves to rate the expert doing his/her utmost to help you a negative with JA. The expert also will not get paid under these circumstances.

Negative ratings do not cover site problems, delays, or anything else on the site that might annoy you, as experts are only involved in trying to answer your questions.

Negative ratings do not cover posts that do not come through, or any other difficulties...experts face those just as you do. This includes frustrations that you might have had before meeting your expert.

I would like to say that we are also on the honors system. I in good faith am going to do my utmost to ensure your satisfaction. But, it is up to your honor to click a smiley face and make sure that I am compensated for my time and effort. Please realize we are only compensated PER smiley per click and from bonuses, so extensive time with you would hopefully stimulate your consideration of this aspect of the system.


Did you replace the clock with a new or used one???

You installed a BRAND new clock, and have no display,,, But it does beep when you press buttons, and only the bake element will work? Does the element glow brightly?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

the clock was from sears direct parts; it was not in a sealed bag so it could have been defective

I didn't keep the lower element on long enough to see if it got red; i just felt it getting hot and turned off


i'll go turn it on and wait a bit

That would be good?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

ok yes the lower element will glow red on the bake function


but the broil function will not engage and top element will not heat

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

so i sent, but i'm not sure it went since i have this screen


anyway the lower element on bake gets red

but the broil tab won't beep or engage and the upper broil element doesn't heat

Lloyd, do you have a multi meter to make some electrical tests?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.


From what I can find out,, the clock gets it's power from the relay board, apparently it is not getting it,,, so I would replace it... You can click on the blue link below to order it...


Repair Clinic offers a 365 day no question ask return policy, so if the repair does not work you can return the part to them for a full refund, yes this even includes electronic parts that many other part suppliers will not allow to be returned.

All I ask of you is to please rate me with one of the top 3 ratings. If there is anything else I can help you with today just let me know. You can continue asking questions for as long as you like even after you rate me. Click the continue conversation link if you would like to continue this conversation. If you are done and rate a 1 or 2 star please consider using the "continue conversation" link and telling me what more I can do or what more you would have liked that was within my power so that I possibly give you that information or help me improve my customer satisfaction rating. . .

Bonuses are welcome if I have helped you a lot, however they are not mandatory
