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!

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.

Need to clean oven after a sharpee marker fell into it while I was baking

Exactly which model is your gas oven?

In general, assuming this a basic kitchen stove, you can start by unplugging electric supply, removing the door, then dismantling the floor cover to gain access.

Not always easy or safe. Call a serviceman if you have any doubts about your mechanical aptitude.

Example user manuals are available on the Frigidaire web site.

Good evening. I have a Whirlpool freestanding electric range GFE461LV that I bought in 2009 and for the first time I will install it. This is because I am from Brazil and since 2009 we were expecting our...

It is 220 V with a neutral conductor. If you are installing it in the United States, local electrical codes may require using a 4-wire cord (two wires for the 220 Volt connection, the neutral and the cabinet ground); otherwise you can use the neutral for grounding with a 3-wire cord. The cord and two-pole circuit breaker in your electrical service panel should be rated for 50 Amperes.

You can download complete installation instructions from Whirlpool. You can also find the Owner's manual and other documentation at the Whirlpool site.

Here is the repair manual for your exact model$FILE/4322089.pdf

See page 18 for diagrams on your lock which is activated by an electric solenoid.

Here is the solution to get the lock to open:

Pull the unit out - on the upper right side top of the back (when facing the oven door), there is a small plastic wheel attached to a bracket with a 0.125" OD lever attached. When the wheel rotates via the electronic solenoid, the lever goes front to back. This is connected to the door latch in such a way that when you move the latch lever toward you (the front of the oven), the latch moves to the left, unlocking the door! Either spin the wheel by hand to move the lever forward, or remove one screw to loosen the housing, then remove the lever from the wheel and push forward toward the door.

Hope this resolves the issue for you. If so please remember to accept and rate my answer as this is exremely important to me as an expert on the site. Many Thanks.
