    Default Two ovens with working burners, but no digital panel working

    Good afternoon all,

    First time poster. This issue was originally going to be an appliance repair question, but now I'm not even sure what the issue is. Our original oven was just old (1977 model) and going bad, so I proceeded to purchase a used one. Now I've gotten two seperate ovens, and both have ended up with the same exact issue, leading me to believe it's my wall outlet. On a side note, this house's electrical wiring was done back in the 70's so nothing has been redone.

    First one I got two days ago from someone on craigslist. Awesome deal for a GE, model started with JBP26 I believe but it's not here anymore and I don't have it on me. We get it home and realize the cord is a 4 prong (3 bladed and 1 ground), and my wall will only support a 3 prong (3 bladed, no ground). We go purchase the correct power cord and put it on. So we plug it in, and nothing on the digital panel will display. The top burners will turn on, and that's about it. Oven can't turn on without the digital board working so we never knew if that would work.
    So we called an appliance repair guy that we have used in the past, since we trust him. He runs his tests with his noise making equipment and believes the control board is bad and needs to be replaced. So he replaces it, and it doesn't fix it. After some decision making, he says he will sell us one of his and he will take the "bad one" for spare parts.

    Fast forward to today, and we pick up a Frigidaire model FFEF3011LWD (attaching pictures of model and wall). So this is from a repair guy with a business, leading me to believe I can at least trust him more than a craigslist sale. Bring it home, plug it in, and the exact same issue is happening. I'm highly doubting two ovens would end up with the same issue within two days, so now I'm left with my outlet. The outlet is giving 220V, so it's not a lack of power to the devices.

    If there is a better place for this post please let me know. We are at a loss and have already dropped $250 just to get to this point, unable to cook.

    Thank you,

    Hi,

    So we plug it in, and nothing on the digital panel will display. The top burners will turn on, and that's about it. Oven can't turn on without the digital board working so we never knew if that would work.

    Did the oven light or outlet plugs work?
    If no, the white or neutral may be loose or missing from the outlet plug.....yes the elements need the two lines for the 220-240 volts AC to work but the clock, outlet plug, oven light need 110-120 volts ( 1 line and 1 neutral ) to work.

    I tend to agree, two different ranges, two different manufactures having the exact same issue would be rare! Does -sound- more like a power issue.
