I have an old whirlpool electric range model number WGE33300, not self cleaning oven for many years. The four top electric burners are fine, but today both oven heating elements will not operate and the...

I was looking at your wiring diagram. A red wire goes to a limit and then enters into a terminal box and feeds L-2 power to both element. I would be looking real close at that limit. It has a orange wire on one side and a red wire o the other terminal and most of these here limits look a lot like this one.
I am gonna try and link ya to the diagram but I doubt WP will allow it. Mighty funny both ements in the oven have took a dump. I suspect that limit. Next I will try and find a part number for that limit and maybe we can see that puppy. Hang on. Looks like it could be NUMBER 8
now let see how much that puppy costs and hopefully what she looks like. Hang on. $40 bucks
Dang that seems to me like a lot. Notice they don't post a pic either. Know why? Because they know yall can get generic ones by looking at the stamped metal temp numbers on the part. A klixon is a klixon. This ques is makin me curious to bust open my parts catalog and see what come up with.

Wall electric oven gets hotter than the tempature reading on the control dial

If this has a manual turn oven control (not electronic) you will have to replace the oven control thermostat.
First shut the power off to the oven at the main breaker. Remove the screws holding the front control panel in place. Some of the screws are located inside the oven and some are on top of the control panel. Tilt the control panel forward to access the oven thermostat. While holding the new thermostat in your hand transfer each wire the the corresponding numbers on the new thermostat. Unclip the oven sensor from inside the oven and feed it into the control panel area.Remove the screws holding the old thermostat to the control panel and discard old thermostat.
Insert new thermostat into the control panel and screw to panel.
Reinsert the thermostat sensor into the oven cavity and fasten to clips.
Re assemble control panel.
WARNING: make sure that no wires are touching when reassembling.
When everything is back together, turn power back on and test temperature.

Top oven thermostat Stoves 800DF - fitting?

Hi, we have had one of these ovens for 8 years (it was in the house we moved into). We had a new control fitted for the top oven (it took the repair company three tries to get the right part) and the problem didn't go away. To be honest, we can't stand this oven but are waiting until we replace the entire kitchen to replace it. The bottom oven is fine. The top oven is fierce and burns food all the time. Overall it's a ridiculous oven - I'd much prefer a sensibly-sized one that actually worked well! Rant over.

Ran Self Cleaning - Display went blank & Oven Door stayed locked

You need thermostat limiter #8300802. It is on the back of the stove behind some sheet metal towards the top. With shipping this part is about $39.00. But don't waste your money. If you replace it, it will burn out again! I am currently trying to find a way for either a class action lawsuit or a total recall. Kitchenaid/Whirpool is well aware of this problem. A $1500.00 stove and it won't self clean.

My oven is locked, after it self cleaned itself. How do I unlock my oven door?

I had this problem but my digital display went blank also. After searching the internet it seems to be a common problem. I changed the FIXED THERMOSTAT . Part # 8300802. It looks like a large watch battery with to electrical connectors affixed with 2 screws. I unplugged the power and shut the gas off. Took off the back metal sheet panel at the back . ( 10 screws ) . I noted which wire went where and replaced it . Put the sheet panel back , plugged it in and turned on the gas and it was good to go. It took 15min. tops. I got the part supplier to print me off a diagram so I knew what I was looking at but if you get the part first you will know soon as you take the back metal sheet panel off. It's the only thing back there.

Kenmore Electric Stove - Gourmet Edition

Thanks for the numbers.
The 628 in the model# tells us it was built by Frigidaire. The date code in the serial number is less clear because it is a different code than their current serial number designations that have been in use since the mid '80's. The style of the stove makes me think late '70's, I would guess '77 or '78 from the first 3 digits of the serial number.
The thermostat should be easy to check. If the broil function in the large oven works, the thermostat should be ok. It is a simple switch that should read closed across the contacts when you turn it to any temp setting when the oven is cool.

The power for the oven will also go through the selector switch which routes the power to different components depending on the setting.
The power also goes through switches in the clock that allow the timed bake and self clean functions to work.
If there is no wiring diagram in the stove, you will probably need one to diagnose the problem if the thermostat checks ok. I would suggest getting one while it is still available in case you need it in the future.
Once you have found out exactly which part you need, you should be able to use the Frigidaire part number from the parts list on the Sears site to track down a replacement part through a local appliance parts dealer. You may have to take the part to them to try to visually match up a replacement. Thermostats and selector switches are usually pretty generic in their operation between manufacturers, the problem lies in finding one that will mount to your control panel properly and that your knob will fit so that you can keep the same uniform look along your control panel.
Please post back with what you find out or if you have any questions.

Oven not heating KitchenAid KERC506HWH3

I have a one year and 2 month old KitchenAid KEMC308KSS03 Wall oven/microwave combination.
After a self cleaning cycle the oven would not heat again. Eveything else works fine the microwave, controls, etc.
The problem is the thermal limiter switch that KitchenAid used. It is a one shot thermal limiter that opens if the back of the oven goes above 120degrees C and does not reset when it cools down.
The KitchenAid PN is 9759243 BUT don't replace it with the same part if you have this problem. KitchenAid want $84 for this silly thing and it a piece of junk. Buy a PN 317-1368-ND from DigiKey Inc. 1-800-344-4539. This is a 120 degree C thermal limit switch but it will RESET itself when the oven cools down so if it happens again you won't have to pull the oven. This part cost s $6.60 from DigiKey and is a much better part than the original one from KitchenAid.
The switch is on the back of the lower oven, there is a cover that comes off and you will see it screwed to the back with two wires connected to it with faston terminals. It is an easy permanent fix for this problem.
KitchenAid is ABSOLUTELY NO HELP with this (as ususal).
I hope this helps.

Dacor oven will no heat.

The reset button is located near (probably behind) the latch that locks your door during sef clean. The reset is located in the middle a thermostat that looks like a round disc the size of a quater and about 1/4 to a 1/2 inch high with two wires, one on each side, plugged into it. Usually with a long thin screwdriver and the power turned off you can reset it with out having to take anything, or at least very little parts, off.

KitchenAid oven shut down during self-cleaning

I've had the same problem and have had the thermo-protector switch replaced four times. After the last time I was so ********** I wrote to the CEO at Whirpool/Kitchen Aid in Benton Harbor, MI with my complaint. Today I received a call from an extremely nice lady in his office who said that they were sending me an updated kit for repair free of charge. The part number is 9759243. She offered that this was a known problem but was limited to just one production run - my luck!

If you are having this problem with your KGSA906PSS write to the CEO at Whirlpool!
