Question about Whirlpool RF369LXPQ Electric Kitchen Range

Oven light exploded and seems fused in socket

After running a cleaning cycle for the oven on my Whirlpool glass top range, the oven light blew out. When I removed the glass cover to change the bulb, the bulb exploded. The remains of the bulb seem fused into the socket. Is there any way to get the old bulb base out? There is little left to get a grip on. I have tried pliers. Nothing budged. Tried the old potato trick, but there was really nothing inside the base for the potato to grip onto. It is model number RS696PXYO. Any suggestions?

I was able to remove the base from the socket by inserting pliers and opening them so that they pressed against the inner sides of the base and then turning while exerting pressure.

Whirlpool RF302BXYW Ser# FD1227461 oven quit working (surface burners are okay)


Several possibilities:
1: Fuses blew under the top cover. Oven fuses will not affect top burners.
2: Element has burned out. Top element only heats when you try to warm the oven.
3: controller has burned out. A controller can cost $150 - $600 for digital. You might want a tech to confirm before you change this one.

The range-top light blew and now replacement bulbs


My Whirlpool/Roper microwave/hood combo has the same problem. I replaced the bulb twice, checked the bulb and it works, but not in the microwave. I wrote to Whirlpool asking about the problem. Haven't heard from them yet.

Hello- Glass bulbs don't make very good handles, do they? Find a good tech to check wiring behind bulb socket. May have burned a connection, and or grounded a wire somewhere. Electric ranges have two 110v circuits that work in combination. One is out. Let me know if info helps- have more if needed- Thanks- ED

The oven will not light on my Whirlpool gas oven Mod SF368LEPQ 2. The stove top burners still light.


Sounds like you need an bake element ignitor if the bake doesn't work but if the broil also doesn't work, it could be the electronic clock/timer control. the part number for the bake ignitor is 8054129 .Best off to call a reliable service company such as Sears.

Exploding Door


the old exploding door ploy...
01:00 hrs while sipping on a very fine IPA watch a bit of tellie the sound of glass shattering startles me from the kitchen. preparing to find the daughter's cat, still in the house after evaded bed time radar, on the counter. instead the front glass on the our GE Profile gas range, model JGB908SEK1SS, is slowly spider webbing into pieces. i grabbed the video camera and captured the event. GE sent out a repair guy to quote me a whopping $304.27 to replace their faulty part. foot note here...the range is four yrs old and hadn't been used in more than 24 hrs prior to the glass on the door shattering. i don't believe the glass had a "fracture to it in the production cycle at the factory". being a DIY guy the service tech ordered the replacement part for me. i just received the replacement glass from GE and it's white which would be OK if we hadn't ordered it in stainless steal. did i mention it's taken 2 months to get the replacement glass. i've attached a photo of the cleaned door awaiting installation. i really wish it had been the cat...77f7f82.jpg

Whirlpool RF367LXS Ceramic Glass Range not working


Almost every time I run the SELF CLEAN cycle on my Whirlpool Self Cleaning range, it fails to function after completing the self clean cycle, even though it completes the cycle of cleaning and unlocks the door. What I do to solve the problem, I power off the BREAKER for the range at the main electrical panel in the house and wait 30 seconds, then power on....and the whole system works just fine until the next time I clean it. This has been a problem from the beginning. My theory is that the electronics get heated up and, like a computer, the system stalls out and needs a complete hard reboot. Good luck!
