How do I use Whirlpool electric oven - AKP509

We moved into a flat with a Whirlpool electric AKP509, there is no manual left for us, and I have no idea how to use the oven.  The symbols are misleading (what we thought was grill seems to do nothing other than very moderately heat the oven) and there seems to be a fan nob and a temperature nob, but this goes simply to "4" which is confusing as it doesn't correspond to gas heating numbers, and when trying to heat the oven to 180deg Celcius for baking I just have to guess.  I can't find any manuals on the Whirlpool website for it, but I'm hoping that there is a (free) manual for a similar model out there which explains the three dials.  Does anyone know how to use this oven?  My baking has become very haphazard!

SOURCE: Maytag gas oven won't hold temperature after 30 minutes of use

The Oven safety valve. Look for it on the base plate below your ignitor. It is a the end of the burner manifold and has 2 wires to it Check it quickly by getting to the point where it acts up. But first, Connect a voltmeter to the 2 wires (if you can with them still connected to the safety valve. When it ignites the voltage will be present. Let it cycle off like you described. Now watch it as it tries to come back on. If you get a voltage reading now that indicates everything else is working and the valve is not opening like it should in other words with the voltage to the gas valve and the ignitor glowing you should have a flame. I assume the ignitor comes back on.

If this helped you please rate me as high as you can. If it did not please restate what problem your having and help me to understand it better. Thank you for using fixya and good luck.

How do i set the clock on Whirlpool built in double oven? Can't find a model number. 5 buttons from left to right. Alarm bell, clock with hand at 12, clock with hand at 3, + and - signs. Pleas

The model number is usually located on the side of the door or on side of the oven cavity area near the door opening. Sometimes if you have a drawer or warmer the model number is located on the oven side of the drawer or warmer (sometimes not directly facing you but on the side of that area. If the oven is electronic you press a clock button or you hold one of those buttons for a couple of seconds like a start or set button. The model number though will help you find a user manual and it for sure should be clear. I hope this helps you.

I'm following the instructions on my Whirlpool range to clean the oven. I've done everything the instructions said, but it won't get going. ( set the knob to clean, set start and stop knobs...

Might be a typo in the manual typically the latch is moved to the right to close and after clean is over move to the left to open. BE SURE TO REMOVE RACKS BEFORE CLEANING

Cleaning cycle finished, oven cool but still locked

Since the clean cycle was interrupted by turning the breaker off it may need to be restarted. Start the clean cycle like you normally would, then after it starts and runs for a couple of minutes, push cancel and see if it unlocks. If not the lock would need to be manually moved by putting a flat thin angled tool or stiff cardboard carefully between the door and oven cavity on the top of the door, slowly move this to the left, you will feel resistance when you get to the latch in the center. If you hit it right it will unlock.

I need to get my oven unlocked. The cleaning cycle went haywire

Unplug the unit or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
If these procedures fail to correct the condition, the lock must usually be accessed and moved manually to open the door.
Some model ovens require the oven door to be manually unlatched before the controls are returned to the OFF position or else the door may not be able to be unlocked. Check the owner's manual for proper operating procedures.

Whirlpool Generation 2000+ oven

Yeah just turn the left hand knob to the one setting which isn't a cooking function - I think it looks a bit like a dash - and then power up as normal on the right hand knob.
It happpened to me but you get the hang of it and it's not a fault.
