Just clock/display
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Sorry didn't receive the that one some reason.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 11 months ago

ok Do you have a Volt-Ohm meter and know how to use it? to be able to do any component or voltage testing

and have you made sure the the breaker is not tripped ? the clock /display is 120 volts all the burners are 240 volt.

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
sir, I flipped the breaker, it's a twin breaker. So, I don't believe one can trip and not the other. I'm getting a Meyer now
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 11 months ago

I think you may have meant getting a meter now!

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
OK got meter
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 11 months ago

ok lets test the voltage to the range at the terminal block (where the cord attaches to the range)

Test Black to Red for 240 volts A/C and see what you get.
