Hello, and thanks for letting me help you with the problem on your range.
May I get the model number off the label off the range?
Also you say 'letters' what letters are appearing on the display?

If you have powered off the range and still get nothing to display normally on the clock, then I would say that you had a power surge and the clock is damaged. You should not be getting letters and numbers on the display. This is a common problem that I have seen when customers have had power interruptions. When the power comes back on it can surge past the normal voltage for a brief time and over power the delicate electronic components in the digital displays. You will need to replace the control to fix it.
The part number that you would need to order is W10203701
