my whirlpool double oven's display is flashing stop, this has happened after a power cut,if it has blown a circuit board which one is it likeley to be?. Thanks in anticipation.
Type of Appliance: Oven & Range
Do you have the instructions for setting the clock on the appliance?
Is the button on the front, between the 2 knobs, clicking when you press it?
hi thanks for replying , instructions have disapeared.
OK, thanks for that.
A lot of the time, the control board locks up when power has been off and then come back on.
Try the following.
Turn the left knob to the off position.
Turn the power on.
Press the button repeatedly until stop goes from the display and the cursor moves to the bottom right of the screen.
Turn the right knob to set the time.
Press the button.
Once the time is set, you'll be running again (assuming there's no fault on the appliance).
If it won't go off stop, turn the power off, wait 5 minutes, turn the power on and try again.
You may need to try this several times.
If it still doesn't work, let me know.
Hope this helps

Hi, tried that several times still, no joy, the display is still showing stop.I think when the electricity came back on there may have been a power surge, burning something out, would you know which board it would be,the top oven/grill is working ok. Thanks.
It would be the main control board.
It controls the main oven.
However, isolate the power to the appliance.
Take it out and take the top off.
The main board is front left on top.
Disconnect the cables from the controls and then plug them back in again.
Try setting the clock again.
Hi, I think the board you mean is the one the knobs are attached to, I disconnected this but when refitted still the same message.
No, I mean the board at the top left, near the front.
Does the button click when you press it?
Is the left control at the off position?
Good morning, the left control is in the off position but there is no click when you press the middle button, it seems dead.
OK, if there's no click, the button is likely faulty.
Isolate the power to the appliance.
With a very thin drill, drill a small hole in the centre of the button.
Don't damage the switch behind the button.
Once you've done that, use a pin to press the switch.
Does it click now?
working spot on, thanks for all you help, many thanks gareth
