Continious noise is coming from the clock on our oven.

We own a whirlpool electric built-in self cleaning single oven model number RB160PXL-2. The clock is making a countious loud running noise that we can not get to stop. It has gone on for about 24 hours now. We tried to play with the clock and the timers and this does nothing but change the pitch of the sound. We tried to turn the circuit breaker on and off but it just starts right up again when the power is returned. The oven seems to be working fine, it will heat up but we have not ''used'' it since the noise began. Please help us to silence the noise.

    We also have the same problem at home. Sadly, the parts for our oven cannot be bought anymore. I would recommending disconnecting the clock from the oven. Good luck!

SOURCE: Wont' heat in broil or bake

check incoming electric first, pull it out and gain access to main wire terminal, With multimeter set to at least 250v AC , check your power across the wiring as such. black to white (110v), red to white(110v) and then black to red 230v. if that ok ok turn, then start ckin elements for continuty also there might be a thermostat( usually an 1 in. round component with 2 wires located right inbetween the elements that has gone bad, will show no continuity. ck that before electronic control the fact that its clickin sounds like the relays are workin properly

SOURCE: oven won't heat

There is a design problem with certain model Whirlpool ranges where the thermal fuse blows during self-cleaning (auto-clean). This may be because of inadequate insulation, causing the outer panel to overheat. When the thermal fuse is replaced, the range will work, but it will blow the next time auto-clean is done. To safely work around the problem, the thermal fuse may be replaced with a thermostat, which will reset itself once the oven has partially cooled off. If the part number of the thermal fuse is 9759243, it will blow at 120 deg C (248 deg F). This can be replaced to a Selco Part# SES-L250 thermostat. The terminals are perpendicular (90 degress), so they have to be bent to 30 degrees for the wires to fit behind the back panel. 

Selco part# SES-L250 specs:

Surface Mount
3/4 in. disc
120/240 VAC
25 A
SPDT
open on-rise (normally closed)
open (cut-out): 250 deg F
close (cut-in): 220 deg F
temperature differential: 40 deg F

Available: Selco distributors: http://www.selcoproducts.com/distributors.php

and online at

Allied Electronics http://www.alliedelec.com


If the Selco SES-L250 'surface mount' thermostat is not available, an 'airstream type' thermostat can be used with a few differences:

1) I recommend to replace it to a 240 or 230 deg F thermostat. The reason for the lower cut-out temperature is that an 'airstream mount' thermostat will not be flush with the back panel, as is the original 250 deg F 'surface mount' one, so it may cut-out at a higher (unsafe) temperature.

2) I recommend to add Heat-sink compound between the thermostat and the sheet metal. This is used for computer processors and is available at computer and electronic component stores.

3) An 'airstream type' thermostat is thicker than the original 'surface mount' one, so longer screws will have to be obtained. The sheet metal tabs on the thermostat will bend slightly when installing.

4) The terminals are perpendicular (90 degress), so they have to be bent to 30 degrees for the wires to fit behind the back panel.

Recommended 'airstream type' thermostats:

When I turn on the self cleaning oven, it makes a loud buzzing noise. Is this normal? If not, what needs to be fixed and how do I do it?


The buzzing sound comes from the relays located on the control board. Remember, the oven gets very hot during self clean, so the control works at full speed to get all the elements working.

My whirlpool accubake built in oven has error code E1F1 due to a power failure. How do I fix this?


It is always a good idea to include both model and serial numbers when requesting help on any appliance... but try...
1. Disconnect power for at least 30 seconds.
2. Re-apply power and observe for at least one minute.
3. If code re-appears, replace control board (also called ERC or clock).

Oven wont work after self clean


I have a Whirlpool MOD. RBS275PDB17 single electric self-cleaning oven; although the manual is generic, it specifies, "When the cycle is completed and the oven cools, "End" will appear on the lower oven display and "LOCKED' will disappear" and "To Stop Self-Clean any time: Press UPPER/OFF, LOWER/OFF or OFF/CANCEL. If the oven temperature is too high, the door will remain locked. It will not unlock until the oven cools." Has your oven had time to cool?
