Sorry to the bad news, but you shorted out the relay in the clock that switches the lamp on and off.

I can try to look up the part you need if your like, but the model number you supplied is not correct. You will need to double check it.

and get back to me.

I noticed that you did not come back to your question about your range.

But if you still have questions, just ask , otherwise, may I please ask that you take the time to rate my help as positive for JA today by selecting 3-5 stars to rate my help to you before you leave today.

I thought I would add, that many people think the payment they placed is sent to me after I answer their question. But,it is held by JA until you give me a positive rating and then JA credits me for my time working with you.

Just Answers runs on the on "Honor System" for technician ratings and I depend on you for a positive rating. No Rating means I work for free .

By rating my help today, you will be "Locked In" at no additional charge, should you need to come back for any follow-up questions.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help you out.

Have a great day!
