Hi. I will do my best to help you. So are you saying randomly the clock will reset/ start flashing. Like power went out?

That is correct. I replaced the Control Panel, then replaced it again thinking the first one was bad. seccond acts the same
Appliance Technician: applianceguy, Customer Service replied 4 months ago
Sounds like a wire problem. Possibly with cord or outlet. I would start by pulling unit out and unplugging unit. Look at cord connection on range. Look for loose wire. Look for arching.

If cord checks ok, turn off breaker. Remove outlet cover. Look for loose wire or arching in outlet.

THose are all fine. Sometimes it doesn't do it for a day or more.
I guess I will have to have a service tech come out. Don't think you can help me.
Appliance Technician: applianceguy, Customer Service replied 4 months ago

Change out the breaker to eliminate that.

No thank you. This was not the reason for the original Panel Replacement. That was for a bad relay on the upper oven bake cycle..
Appliance Technician: applianceguy, Customer Service replied 4 months ago
Things to mention at the start of the conversation.
