Question about Whirlpool RF364 Electric Kitchen Range
I just need to be change these -as I found a wire burnt into on the baking element and broil element is not working either. Can you give me step by step please. Don't want to burn my home down or get shocked when I am done. Thanks
I would recommend you check BOTH elements for proper resistance prior to replacing them. If both of them are not working, the problem may actually be with the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. This is your clock assembly. On electric ranges, the EOC controls all the oven features. Check the resistance of the heating elements by performing the following:
- Perform a resistance check from terminal end to terminal end (where the wires connect to). You should get a high resistance reading in the Kohms range (this varies between models). If the reading is infinite, you have an open heating element. (Must be replaced).
- Second, perform a resistance reading from one terminal end to the outer shell of the heating element. You should get an infinite reading. If this reading is a low resistance or short, the element is shorted. (Must be relplaced).
NOTE: Take these readings with the wires disconnected.
You may be right, but please take the time to check both elements and let me know what you find. You may have started off with a bad element, but it could have damaged the EOC as well. I have seen this happen before. The result is an oven that still doesn't work after the homeowner replaces the defective element.

I hope this information is helpful to you.
