Question about Whirlpool RBD305PD Electric Double Oven

1 Answer

Oven won't heat

My oven is actually a RBS305PDB6 It was working fine, until I used the self clean mode for the first time. It heated and cooled nicely, but now the oven won't heat the broiler won't work either, and it won't self clean again. The fan is running when I turn it on. I tried resetting the circuit breaker and still no luck. Same problem here. I have the RBD306PDQ6 Double Oven. Decided to be the "Good Husband" and clean the oven after Thanksgiving while my wife was out of town. Followed all the steps in the owners manual and ran cleaning cycle for first time in 9 years. Result: Oven cleaning cycle not finished, oven still not clean, and burned out two of the Thermal Fuses. 4451042 Control Panel Thermal Fuse 4451442 Upper Oven Shutdown Thermal Fuse Seems like this is a major design fault with this oven. Cleaning cycle only ran for about 50 minutes before everything shut off. Control panel display was blank. Replaced Control Panel Thermal Fuse, and Display came back, but upper oven won't heat. Pulled oven out and tested Oven Shutdown Thermal Fuse and it is burned out. Replacing that fixes oven. Oven Exterior gets way too hot during cleaning cycle. In metal air vent area at top of oven was a plastic sleeve with a diagnostic tech sheet. During the clean cycle, this plastic sleeve completely melted and has laminated itself to the tech sheet. I'm surprised this oven didn't set my house on fire! Moral of the story is: If you have this oven, DO NOT run the self cleaning cycle, unless you want to replace thermal fuses. Looks like this "good deed" will cost me about $60 in parts to fix. Ken

Unplug the power cord for thirty minutes, this should reset the oven.
If this still does not work do the following:
Press clean and then cancel. This will reset the appliance.

If the error does not clear , then during the self cleaning cycle, the high temperature has probably damaged the temperature sensor probe, and it must be replaced.

Hi lost the manual..need to start self cleaning


Hello,

An electric oven is a great oven choice because of the advanced self-cleaning feature often available on certain models. A self-cleaning oven uses high temperatures to clean crusty baking spills and splatters and free its owner from having to use harsh chemicals to clean his oven. The following 4 steps lay out how a self-cleaning oven works.

Step 1 - Setting the Self Cleaning Mode
Depending on the style and brand of oven you own, you start the self-cleaning cycle by setting the oven's operating dial to "Clean," a function that can be as simple as setting a timer knob or pushing one or two buttons.

Step 2 - Cleaning Cycle
Once you have set the self-cleaning cycle, the oven coils-both lower and upper--will begin to heat. These self-cleaning ovens are protected from high oven temperatures damage by heavy insulation installed in their walls and door during the manufacturing process.

Step 3 - Automatic Door Lock
When the oven reaches a pre-determined temperature, the lock on the oven door engages, preventing anyone from opening the door until the oven temperature has cooled.

Step 4 - Removing Residual Ashes
Once the cleaning process is completed, including cooling, you can then remove the residual ash by wiping the bottom oven surface with a damp cloth or sponge.


Hope this helpout

Whirlpool 27" wall oven. no heat after self clean


Self cleaning features are not recommended by most appliance technicians. The ovens are not constructed satisfactorily to expel the 1000 degree heat, Therefore the thermal fuses blow as well as other parts failures.
Remove the oven. Remove the rear panel. Replace the thermal fuse in the back of the oven. Use Easy Off next time.

Self-Clean gets too hot on JTP56 double-oven


Your husband is correct, kind of. You should not try self clean again until you get the oven repaired. You have a temp sensor going out. I doubt that the oven actually got too hot, most likely the resistor in the sensor is failing as it heats up and giving a false temp reading.Since the lower oven was operating at the time, it is probably the sensor in the lower oven. Don't use it for baking until you get it repaired. It will go out completely and shut down both ovens. You should be able to get a new sensor for around $30 and they are not hard to replace.

The oven won't set your house on fire during clean mode if the cabinets were built with the correct air space and dimensions, but they do get very hot, about 800 degrees F. Most ovens give no trouble during the clean cycle, but if there is any weak components in the electronics system it will show up then. It will give you less trouble over time if you don't use the self clean mode and just manually clean it.

Oven will not heat at all after an interrumpted cleaning cycle (power went off)


There is a thermo fuse located behind the back panel of the oven. If the oven appears to be working but is not actually heating then this is the cause. The oven will have to be removed from the wall, power to the oven shut off at the main breaker and the back panel removed. the thermo fuse is just to the left and up from the center of the convection fan. It has 2 wires connected to it.
