hello - got nice Kenmore stove that won't work. No lights come on or burners or oven...nothing. Checked the power, and the breaker. The only other thing i can think of is something to do with the timer...Anyone know what i need to do to the timer? Thanks a ton in advance.

p.s. i don't know the model # by off hand...but can check it when i get home.

** nice Kenmore stove **

I'm afraid its esthetic description does not help to identify the appliance in questions. What is needed is its exact model number.

You can find tips for locating the model number identification tag on your appliances in the 'Repair Parts' section of my web site linked below.

** Checked the power **

At the appliance's outlet?

** Checked the breaker **

How exactly did you do that? Just look to see if it was tripped or you actually reset it anyway??

** The only other thing i can think of is something to do with the timer **

A range's timer rarely ever has anything to do with the cooktop elements. If they are not working too, I doubt that is the reason.

***At the appliance's outlet?***

-How do you check the power at the appliance's outlet? Remove the plug end to expose the wires to check?

** Checked the breaker **

***How exactly did you do that? Just look to see if it was tripped or you actually reset it anyway??***

-yes - checked to see if it was tripped and reset it anyways because it wasn't

There is a mechanism on the back of the stove that can be moved from side to side (sorry horrible description)...was wondering if that has anything to do with the self-cleaning mechanism or if that is a stove reset of some kind...

i will post model # when i get home..it's from the inglis built c800 series

** -How do you check the power at the appliance's outlet? **

With a volt meter, usually by inserting its probes into the socket's holes.

** checked to see if it was tripped and reset it anyways because it wasn't **

That's good but doesn't necessarily mean it is good and why actually testing for power at the appliance's outlet is usually necessary to confirm it.

** There is a mechanism on the back of the stove that can be moved from side to side (sorry horrible description)... was wondering if that has anything to do with the self-cleaning mechanism **

I'm afraid I have no idea. It wouldn't affect operation of the surface elements regardless.

** or if that is a stove reset of some kind. **

Stoves (nor most other appliances) don't usually have any kind of "reset".
