Question about Whirlpool RBS305PD Electric Single Oven
My wife went to use the self cleaning option, and after some time had passed she noticed there was no power at all. I went to the look at the fuse box for the house and the circuit wasn't tripped but I reset anyway just in case. Still nothing. I can't open the door at all to the top as it auto locked. I read about replacing a fuse on the oven, where do I get direction on how to do this as I called up Whirlpool and they connected me to a local servicing company that wants to charge me $75 just to come out to look at the issue.
I had the same problem the first time I used the cleaning cycle. The oven was under warranty when it occurred so I watched the repairman when he fixed it. He not only installed a larger fan, but he had to replace a thermocouple that is on the back of the oven, part number 4450934. The oven seems to die (lose power) after every cleaning cycle. I'm now ordering my third thermocouple. To replace the part, you have to pull the oven out from the wall to access the back. To do that, open the oven door. (If your door is locked because of the cleaning cycle, you may have to
take a hacksaw blade to slip it in to see if you can trip the latch.
The repair man was lucky when he did mine as the door clicked open when
he was just messing with it so I don't know any trick to get it
unlocked. He said that because the thermocouple died, it didn't provide the signal to unlatch the door, so the oven thinks it's still at 500 degrees and keeps the door locked which is part of the safety process). If you do get the door open, on the sides of the oven itself, at the bottom inside hinge of the door, you will see a screw holding the molding (frames the side of the opening of the stove). Remove each screw (left side and right side at the bottom) and pull the molding off. You now have access to the screws that hold the oven to the cabinet that it is sitting in. Remove those screws (mine has one on each side) and you can then slide the oven out. It's heavy so you will need help or have some thing you can slide it on to. It needs to come out far enough so you can access the back. You will see the thermocouple on the back, held on with two screws. Remove the wires and take the part off and throw it away (or keep it so you know what to order again next time as you will be replacing it again after you do another cleaning cycle) GREAT WHIRLPOOL PRODUCT. Reverse the process and you will be baking in no time.
