Tip & How-To about Whirlpool RBS275PD Electric Single Oven
If both broiling and baking element are not heating, then the most common fault causing the problem is a defective temperature probe.
The probe is located inside the oven cavity.
On most ovens there is only one temperature sensor, connected in series on the circuit from electroning oven control to elements. The probe will control both baking and broiling element, opening the circuit when limit temperature is reached.
When the probe fails, it will affect both baking and broiling function.
The temperature probe is tested reching the probe, cutting or disconnecting its wiring, and testing the probe at room temperature, with a multimeter set on impedance at Rx1. If the multimeter reads no continuity (circuit open), then the probe must be replaced.
If the temperature probe is good, then parts that may be responsible for the fault are oven electronic control and wiring. Having both elements failing at the same time would be rather unusual.
