Can a larger capacity (heating) unit be installed in my kitchen range, for higher heat


You cannot exceed the exact replacement parts for fear of wiring meltdown. If you must get a hotter stove for say a Wok, you must buy a model for a wok. They are out there.

My 10 year old whirlpool super capacity 456's right front control knob started to burn with flames shooting out. Disconnected plug from wall and have been using lighter to start burners. Any idea as


there's a wiring harness with 4 or sometimes 5 switches depending on the model you have that slides onto the valve so when you turn the knob that burner will light,the switch most likely shorted out.if this is a regular stove with an oven and burners on top look down at the bottom,under the oven door you'll see a draw,open the draw and look on the frame not on the draw on the frame and you'll find a tag with the model and serial number on it,send the model number and i can look up your model.

How do I change my whirlpool super capacity 465 from natural gas to propane


The documentation for Whirlpool appliances is available here: http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp . Enter the full model number from the oven rim inside the drawer. The installation guide will walk you through the conversion. However, it is recommended that a qualified technician (for LP, if going to LP) do the conversion. Most LP companies will have someone who can perform the conversion. The conversion kit should have come with the documentation for the range.

I've found one model of Super Capacity 465 with the model number SF325PEEQ0. The documentation is here: http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search_results.jsp?form_state=literatureSearch&context=&siteCd=WHRCOM&form_state=literatureSearch&searchTerm=SF325PEEQ0 .

The steps: Make sure the power cord is disconnected, the gas supply is turned off and the grates and burner bases are removed from the top burners. Open the broiler door and locate the regulator, remove the cap from the regulator and turn it over so that LP is visible. Reinstall the cap. Do not remove the regulator. Move the range out from the countertop (about 4") if it is in place. Slide a putty knife carefully between the cooktop and the oven compartment to locate one of the clips on the side 2 3/8" back from the front of the range. While gently lifting up on the cooktop surface, push in on the clip. Repeat on the other side. Prop up the cooktop and remove the Venturi plates. Then remove one orifice at a time from the cooktop, use a 3/8" combination wrench. Replace with the same colored orifice from the kit. Lower the cooktop and reinstall all of the burner bases and other parts. In the oven, use a 1/2" combination wrench to tighten the orifice hood down to the pin (2 to 2 1/2 turns). Do not overtighten. Finish installing the range except for sliding it into the final position and then check the burners. You may need to adjust the air shutter for each burner. With the burners off, remove the knobs. Open the oven door and remove three screws from the manifold panel. Pull the panel down and away from the range. With a small screwdriver, adjust the air shutters for each burner (clockwise to let in more air, counterclockwise to reduce the air). Replace the manifold and then the control knobs and check the burners. Start the oven heating and check the burner for it. There is another air shutter next to the regulator; adjust if needed.

I hope this helps.

2 of 4 burners ignite, all tick?


The two front burners are used most often. On the side of the burners are tiny holes that become plugged and keep the burner from lighting. If all the burners are the same size try swapping the heads around. If they are not all the same size be sure they are in the correct position and fully seated on the top. Sometimes the heads have to be replaced when cleaning no longer works.

Heating elements


I have a Whirlpool super capacity 465, the surface light for the burners comes on, the burners don't heat up, nor does the oven,(the light that says oven is on does not light up). I checked the main circuit breaker, that works. Are there any fuses in the range that would need to be replaced?

Thank-You,maddie

Whirlpool Super Capacity 465 the oven/broiler does not come on.


More than likely a bad ignitor
Here is how to tell If the ignitor is glowing it should be VERY bright, if it is dim orange it is weak and bad.
