Whirlpool Double over

Was self cleaning my upper over yesterday and during the cleaning process all my functions stopped working, no clock, nothing and the door to the oven is locked and cannot get it open. I have tried the ciruit breaker and that has not helped. Does anyone have any suggestions.

Re: Whirlpool Double over

Big dib, the TC0, ( thermal cut out) probably has opened. This is non resetable. To get at it you have to pull the oven out to a point where you can get at the back. Then you have to remove the oven back panel and there is the TCO. Part number 4450249. You can verify this by ohming out the TC0, if it shows open (no continuity) it's bad. I have done a number of these and it takes two people to repair it safely. Kill the breaker when going in there. back.

Whirlpool RBD245PDB6 went dead and locked up during self cleaning. It was the third or fourth time in 8 years we used self cleaning. The TCO in the back was open, replaced it but still inoperative. I found a thermal limit fuse in line on the black wire leading to the printed circuit board. It too was open, after replacing it the oven works fine. Check both fuses.

Re: Whirlpool Double over

This problem is chronic with this oven. Complain as loudly as you can to Whirlpool. It won't do any good, but they should know that there are more than just a few of us out there who are dissatisfied with their product.

Try removing the ribbon connector and cleaning the end that plugs into the microcomputer. You can rub it lightly with an eraser or use electrical contact cleaner on it.

Hello, and sorry to read about your problem.
if you have tried to re-power the unit, and still have the same issue, you then have a general main board failure,
you may want to contact a service company. it takes experience to know which part is defective.

I tried to help you. Please help me and vote/rate my response thanks.

Upper oven elements don't heat

Hello- 'Successfully' sounds like you were forewarned....  During the 'self-clean' cycle a circuit or connection to the upper elements burned out while attempting to turn stuff inside the oven to ash. Since this is a wall oven my recommendation is for service from a good tech in your area. You may have lucked out with a fried connector, but many times control board is damaged beyond repair and must be replaced. Only on-site diagnostics will confirm, and this is a very heavy unit for most owners to safely service.  - Remember- Don't use 'self clean'!! Scrape and clean with soapy water and cloth. Turn on oven to 450deg. for 30 min. Much safer. Less costly.       Please acknowledge this post if the info is helpful- Have more if needed.  Thanks-  Ed

There is a non-resettable fuse on the back of the oven that will have to be replaced. The oven will have to be removed from the wall and the back panel removed from the oven to access the fuse.

We had a power outage today during the self cleaning process of our double oven.. The Electronic Oven Control panel is dead. No lights of any kind. The circuit breaker is ok. Upper door is locked.

Turn the breaker off for 5 minutes. this will reset the system. If you still have no power then it spiked your control board and it's the board that is fried.

Self-cleaning feature of GE Built-In Oven does not work

Simply set the Clock and Delay Start to the current time, then set the Stop Time ahead 3 hours. For example, if it is currently 8:00 then set the Stop Time to 11:00. The lights on the console will come on and the cleaning cycle will begin. At some point during the cycle when the oven gets hot enough, the lock mechanism is "fixed" and will not release until the cycle is complete.

Oven shut down during Self-cleaning

tde, sounds like your thermal fuse (TC0) opened on the back side of the oven. If this opens, it will shut the oven down. This happens alot during self cleaning on built ins. Sometimes I have to re-route the tco to a different area to prevent this from happening. Your part number is 4451442. You will have to pull the oven out far enough to remove the back paneling and replace the back.
