Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly.

Are you sure the power to it is correct?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
there is power. the clock blinks and the lower over functions
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

OK you need to see if there is 240 volts to the unit as the clock runs on only 120 and the unit will do all that but not heat if the power is not 240 volts. I would say based on the issue you have a power problem 99.99%

All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am paid anything through the site and that will also get you a DIRECT LINK emailed to you to get back to me!.....tips are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service. If you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Ok just let me know when you have it or have checked it please.

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

If you want to do a simple test shut the power off to the unit and just switch the outside two legs swap them...turn it back on and see if the clock powers up...if not power issue 100%

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
