Whirlpool electric range model # RF261PXSQ oven not heating

My electric range is a little over a yr. old and the bake, broil and self cleaning function do not work. The stove top works fine the digital display says the oven is preheating and beeps saying it is up to temp. but there is not heat. The elements were not the problem what else could it be? Anyone have any ideas? Please help!!

    Burners work; oven control panel works, but the elements in the oven do not heat up on bake or broil.



    My model is: RF261PXST

    Do the elements actually come on? Or do they stay off and never attempt to heat?

I'm afraid you may have a blown Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. The EOC controls all the functions of the oven. The surface elements are controlled by individual infinite switches behind each control knob.. That's why the surface elements all work, but the oven does not. A replacement EOC can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number and you will find it under the "Control Panel Parts" heading as item number 12. There are several listed, based upon the color you need (White, Biscuit, and Black). This is a very simple repair that any do-it-yourselfer can accomplish if you wish to perform this on your own. All you have to do is UNPLUG the appliance and remove the back panel of the console to access.

Before assuming the EOC is defective, however, inspect the board to see if it has a fuse on it. I do not have a wiring diagram to confirm. Some of these boards do have fuses and that's all that it may take to repair it. However, if the board shows signs of burned components, replace it. NOTE: Check for any loose connectors to the board as well.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have questions and/or require additional assistance.

I ran the self cleaning functi9on on our eoedctric oven, and now it has electric, but does not heat up.. Is there a fuse or something that has blown?


There is a thermal fuse that feeds the bake and broil elements located on the back wall (behind a sheet metal panel). It sometimes fails during a self-clean.

Should still be under warranty! Call the dealer. Make sure you have the model # and serial # from the tag on the oven first. It is the ONLY way they can check warranty status. If not covered, it is probably the selector switch

Jennaire broiler doesnt work on slidein range after using self clean oven. Its only 14 mo. old


if just your broil element does not work and the bake element does work after using a self clean cycle then your broil element must have went out , self clean is a torture proccess for any self clean oven and it runs both elements at 500 deg. F, it may be still under warranty , if not then replace the broil element for the fix.

Viking Dual Fuel 6 Burner 48" OVEN DOES NOT HEAT


I hate self clean functions - If you think about it - you should too. These ranges are equipped with electronic components and running self clean at 950 degrees will more than likely burn something out. A lot of complaints are because of the self clean. It's not worth it to self clean than to clean it yourself. And 200 dollars is a great price for something like this if it includes parts and labor. Good luck.

Oven will not heat past 220 degrees


Check your bake element, I had the exact same problem and found the bake element had burned in half. The broil element comes on during preheat and kicks off at around 220 degrees.

Oven will not heat to requested temperature


Shaffy, When baking only the bake element should heat. When broiling only the broil element (upper) should heat. Your oven is a Kitchenaid, you have a 5 year warranty on any electronic element or control board. You may have a temperature sensor that is not working right. The oven just might need to be calibrated, the instructions would be in your owners manual. Your bake element might be failing, it would have to be ohmed out. You also need to verify that the bake element is getting 240V. when turned on. Catriver...post back
