While cooking dinner tonight our 14 year old gas range made a sudden, LOUD, **Crack** Bang ** sound like a light bulb exploding. Looking it over it seems that something electrical is fried- the clock is dead, and the gas igniters won't work.
I'm thinking of replacing the gas range with an electric model. Our home (1973) has always had a gas range. I'm guessing/assuming that the electric supply to the stove is just 120v, and that a new electric model requires 240v? My question is if I want to go electric would I need to call in an electrician to convert the outlet? What's involved?
