Question about Whirlpool Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Oven element started to spark

Whirlpool Range Model RS386PXB, oven element started to spark, the element had one spot that appeared it was being welded together, a sharp bright light. I shut the oven off and the one spot on the element continued to spark and glow red.
I shut off the circuit breaker to the range.
I later turned the circuit breaker back on to use the cooktop but the oven started to warm, the controls were off for the oven, what could be the problem? I know that the element needs to be replaced but is there more to this than I know?

Wire burning smell whirlpool range. Happens when oven or top are turned on. Smoke come out under control panel.


Had the same problem with my Whirpool range. Took off the rear panel and carefully plugged in and turned on the top oven. One of the terminals on the part labeled as 'Switch, Hi-limit' started to spark, glow and emit smoke. This part had 2 blue wires running to it. One came off of the top element in the top oven and the other fed back into the black plug on the control panel. Part in quests is held on with a single screw and has a part no. of 7403P993-60

The baking element isn't working.


You can replace the element. The element should just plug in to the oven. You might have to remove a few bolts that hold the element in place. Get the model number of your range and call your local appliance stores, or order it online. Unplug the old element and plug in the new element.

Oven erupted like a blow torch why?


The broiler element burned into. Look at the top element and you will see a spot where it is rough, melted or burned. Replace the element by removing the two screws at the back of the oven and pull the wire out a little and unplug the element and plug the new on it.

Whirlpool Accubake Super Capacity 465 gas range. Oven won't light


I just had my ignitor replaced. The ignitor glowed but it must pull a certain amount of amps before it will allow the gas valve to open. Once the ignitor starts glowing the gas should come on within 30 seconds. Now that I saw it done I realize it was something I could have done myself. Be sure the tech does not try to slip you a used ignitor as mine tried.

Getting a error code F3E2


The F3 E2 error code indicates that the electronic oven control board in the range senses an over-temperature condition in the oven. This can be caused by a failed temperature sensor probe, a wiring problem between the sensor and the control board, or a failed electronic oven control board. If the oven is apparently not overheating when this error code appears, then your likely failure is the temperature sensor probe. If the oven is overheating, then you likely have a failed electronic oven control board due to a stuck relay not cycling the oven heating element off properly. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair this oven failure. If you want to attempt to diagnose and repair this failure yourself, resubmit your question with additional details.

Good luck and please rate FixYa!
