    How much is the element?

    I just used the self clean and now both ovens will not work

  • talleyklotz Jan 22, 2009

    I have a Whirlpool Double Wall oven. I just ran self clean on the bottom oven and now it won't heat up. The fan turns on, but the coils/heating elements (?) won't heat up. Also, the top oven works, the clock, timer and control panels work fine.

    There is one answer that says to replace the 'element' and that removal of the oven is required but the heating element is listed as the coil things at the top and bottom and says it can be replaced with a screw driver to pull them out and rewire new ones.

I found an answer to this problem at ApppliancePartsPros, from Gene:

He was dead on. I've since replaced the fuse for 3 different ovens in my neighborhood. It's a quick and easy fix. I recommend getting a small furniture dolly to tilt the oven out onto so you don't have to use your back at all.

Good luck!

Bad luck, you've almost certainly blown the element. On the bright side even with modern 'throw-away' ovens it is often possible to change the element or have in changed (you will need the serial number and google and to take the oven out and dismantle it - not for the novice really.

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

I ran a cleaning cycle on the lower oven. Now it won't heat


the answer is the thermal sensor, mine has gone bad everytime I clean the oven. Solution, run a fan on the oven while you are self cleaning, this keeps the outside heat away from the unit. Pain to replace the sensor, its in the middle back of the oven, have to pull the whole unit out.

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.

Whirlpool oven issue


Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
