Blank control panel but light works Whirlpool Dbl. Oven RBD305PDS
I turned off breaker for 10 min. for panel to reset. did not work. I saw a fix for cleaning a particular wire on your website, but now I can't find it. Can you help? Control panel is out of stock until 12/20. I am hosting a party in 7 days!

Re: blank control panel but light works Whirlpool Dbl....
Probably have a thermal fuse out. Need a test meter to diagnose this, so you may want the reapir man. No point in buying a control if you don't really know what is wrong.... I cannot see your reply due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

I assume yiu had the electronic oven control repaired. Sometimes the touch pad also goes bad. I have had to replace them at the same time. If the oven indicator lights showing the oven being on shows up on the display it could be that the thermal fuse behind the oven has gone out. this in in the common line and will shut down both ovens at the same time but you will get the control panel to respond to the touch pad.
Bill ,i dont suspect the control unit is the problem im going back to the loud pop you heard I would say the pop you heard was one of the elemants blowing and that the reason the the breaker tripped if you say the clock,timer and light functon are ok it more so points to an elemant in most cases when an elemant blows it breaks the circuit .but the other componants also work when you reset the breaker i think in this case bill i would call a electrician it needs testing,sorry i could not help this time bill,but do not hesatate to contact me if i can help you again.adrian
Last night I saw the lights in the house flicker momentarily... This morning, I turned the oven on, set it to Bake and within a few seconds, the control panel reported error code “F6 E0” then shut the oven off. The control panel also reported "Lost communication...". I read on another site that this code may require replacing the control panel itself. Apparently, the momentary power fluctuation wasn't large enough to damage the electronics (since the control panel still works), but was significant enough to confuse the electronics controlling the oven. To fix the oven, I simply turned the 30 AMP breaker for the oven off for about 5 minutes. When I turned it back on, the oven worked just fine. Solution #1 recommends taking off the control panel, which voids the warranty. It's more likely that it was fixed just by cycling power to the oven via the breaker.
The control panel may have a power issue. Replacing the board fixed my problem. It looks like 4 resistors and a ZD1 diode heat up and fail. The U1 chip could also be a problem. If you replace the controller it will cost around $225. Be careful of the key pad ribbon cable. They break easily. Another $186. Good luck.
A lot of people seem to have ran into this problem. I had no luck finding a solution to this problem anywhere on the internet. I finally fixed this problem by replacing the control board. Wanted to put this info out here for others. The part swaps out fairly easy for all of you considering the fix yourself. Sears direct had the cheapest price.
I had a very similar problem (I was observing the error & fault code "E6 F2", but not always. I did always have the beeps.) on a Whirlpool RBD305PDS14 double oven built-in. I spent time today (Oct. 21) and traced the problem down to the keypad flexible cable that connects the keypad to the oven control panel.
[ALWAYS WORK WITH POWER OFF!!!]
I cleaned the flexible cable contacts that seat into the board mounted female connector on the control panel board using a Q tip and isoproply alcohol. This did the trick.
(Elsewhere in this forum, there is information on how to remove the oven control panel and gain access to the control assembly. I posted this information - keywords in subject: Whirlpool RBD305PDS14.)
