Question about Whirlpool Kitchen Ranges
SOURCE: electric oven fan
This problem is caused by one of two components, depending on the model, there is a thermal cut in thermostat that keeps the fan running until the unit has cooled down and on some models there is a four wire timing device that keeps the fan running for a specific time after the temperature drops, the fault can only be casued by one of these components.

Yes, it could be. The first thing to try is a "hard reset".
Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, then try again.
Let us know if the hard reset doen't fix it.
We appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

id like to see it happen bfore replacin parts, but the control panel is the only "control for bake" there is no "resetable thermostat", and it uses direct spark , not an ignitor( usual suspect)..perhaps after long heating the relay on the control heats up and doesnt close correctly

If the housing of the unit isn't too difficult to remove (normally 3-5 Phillips screws around the rear edge), with the unit unplugged of course, check for a user replaceable fuse inside. The magnetron is separately fused and fuses can fail due to metal fatigue. It will be high amperage; 10-20 amperes and many hardware stores will have them. BTW, there is no residual radiation from a magnetron that isn't operating.
