Question about Whirlpool RF364 Electric Kitchen Range
Freestanding oven is 5 years old. Used oven yesterday and it worked fine. This morning I tried to use it and oven would not heat to correct temperature. Both elements are not heating (top or bottom). Smoothtop range is still working.
farkle, outside of Gendos's excellent advice, the issue could be with the keypad. If your model has a keypad ribbon that attaches to the main board, remove it and take a eraser and clean the ends. Then reinsert it. On the board there should be two clips on the end where the ribbon attaches. Lift these up and the ribbon will pull out. See if this solves the problem...Catriver.

SOURCE: broil element will not work
You need to check the oven sensor. It should be about 11k ohms. This is the metal rod in the back top of oven cavity. Access it from the rear. UNPLUG POWER FIRST!!

SOURCE: Unlocking Oven controls
According to the manufacturer's website you should only need to Press and hold the "Lock" key for 5 seconds. A single tone will sound and the "Loc" will disappear off the display.
This is the link to Whilpool's website and to the manual.

I'm afraid you may have a blown Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. The EOC controls all the functions of the oven. The surface elements are controlled by individual infinite switches behind each control knob.. That's why the surface elements all work, but the oven does not. A replacement EOC can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number and you will find it under the "Control Panel Parts" heading as item number 12. There are several listed, based upon the color you need (White, Biscuit, and Black). This is a very simple repair that any do-it-yourselfer can accomplish if you wish to perform this on your own. All you have to do is UNPLUG the appliance and remove the back panel of the console to access.
Before assuming the EOC is defective, however, inspect the board to see if it has a fuse on it. I do not have a wiring diagram to confirm. Some of these boards do have fuses and that's all that it may take to repair it. However, if the board shows signs of burned components, replace it. NOTE: Check for any loose connectors to the board as well.
I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have questions and/or require additional assistance.
