i have a Tappan(Frigidare) ES100 electric range and the oven

This answer was rated:

i have a Tappan(Frigidare) ES100 electric range and the oven won't heat up. it doesn't have any error displays in the digital panel, and it just stopped working the other day. i tried to unplug and reset, but it didn't work, there was no fuse i could find and it seems odd that both elements would go out together. any help?

serial # (if it helps) VF74430456
the most likely cause for this is the erc (electronic range control) clock. Part(NNN) NNN-NNNN width=Part(NNN) NNN-NNNN width=this is locacted in the control panel, unplug the stove and take the back cover of the control and check this for burns, we replace allot of these, thanks Bryan

i have checked the erc, there is nothing that looks burnt, any other suggestions?

and where could i get a erc if i need it?
even though you check it and didnt find any burns this doesnt mean its good, there are no thermal fuses in this so if your getting 220. volts going to the range you will need the erc, they have this in stock for$99.00 @ thanks Bryan

this piece doesn't look exactly like the one in my unit, will it still work if it's not the exact same piece?

if so, are there any tips for installation that i need to be aware of?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

is this new part going to be an ongoing problem? have you seen them go out again after replacement? it seems to be a common problem with this machine.

should i just go buy a new one and forget this one? could i sell the used one to anyone around the nashville area?

well this is common on allot of ovens unforunatly, a new oven may have different problems but this maybe a better option, I dont know anyone in Nashville that buys them I'm in Greeneville about 31/2 hours away from you. you could put it on gregs list and mention it needs a clock but its only $69.00 to replace, you may get a $100.00 or so if its in nice shape. thats all I can do , thanks Bryan

how do i replace,?

just unscrew and unplug? then insert plugs and screws?

you will need to take the back panel of the control panel on the top where the controls are. take the screws out of the clock but do the wires one by one so you dont mix them up. take one off at a time and put it on the new clock as you go. heres a diagram of the assembly. thanks Bryan,
