Pull the temp probe and check the Ohms. It should be around 100 Ohms. If you get a different reading, replace it with this probe.

SOURCE: baking element not working

If you have already replaced the bake element (which would have been MY first logical choice) and it still does not work, the problem is more likely with the Electronic Clock Control. The control has two separate circuits that will select and turn on either the bake of the broil elements. It is usually a defective relay that causes the particular mode of choice to stop working. The part number for the ECC is 1166040 and costs about $128. It's not a cheap fix, but it would cost you much more if you had a service man fix it for you. Unless...of course, you still have a warranty. Most manufacturers cover all parts from defects for the 1st year. Some parts are covered longer than the initial warranty, however. It may be worth you while to double check your purchase date and appliance paperwork. This repair is not difficult and can be accomplished by the average do-it-yourselfer. If you decide you want to repair the appliance on your own, let me know and I can give you step-by-step instructions on how to do it.

PS Double check the wiring from the ECC to the bake element as well. You could have a broken wire causing the same symptoms too. Also, don't be alarmed by the failure of the ECC. Although they are generally reliable for quite a number of years, they have been known to fail during electrical storms and/or power surges. Something else you may consider: check your home owner's insurance policy to see if it covers the loss of appliances in the event of such incidents. I hope you find this information helpful.

More than likely a bad ignitor
Here is how to tell If the ignitor is glowing it should be VERY bright, if it is dim orange it is weak and bad.

Hi, It sounds like the ignitor has gone bad. Remove the floor panel in the oven and locate the ignitor fastened to the burner. There should be 120V going to the ignitor harness.
If you have voltage but no ignition, change the ignitor.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: Start Button Failed on Whirlpool Electric Range Model GY396LXPQ02

It sounds like you have an oven problem rather than a start button problem. Is there an error code? If so list your model and error code on a search engine and you will find error codes. Or you can just list make model number and error codes and you can find a chart of Whirlpool error codes. I have done this with no problem. That should tell you the exact problem and things to try.

It may be neither issue you mentioned. It could be a bad element or a short.

It is not good to do the self clean. The electronics take a beating. Probably the ignitor went out. The oven gets too hot.

Whirlpool Range model RF386PXGQ2 broiler won't shut off


Hi.

If the element does not turn off, possible faults are:

Shorted temperature probe.
Test temperature probe reading impedance. If impedance is zero or lower than 0.500 Ohms, the the probe is shorted. A good probe reads about 1KOhms.

Contact at element. A contact in element wiring harness may cause the element to stay on. Do continuity test between ground and element and on wiring harness.

Defective control module.
If problem is none of the above, then it is the oven electronic control(ERC). The ERC can be tested reading voltages.

Testing must be done by a trained technician.

Broiler element and oven element not working. oven has power to it, all lights and displays are working,


Since neither the broiler or bake elements are working I would suspect either the sensor - sensing a higher temperature than set meaning the sensor is defective (Item #29 on the diagram) - http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Whirlpool-Parts/Wall-oven-Parts/Model-YRBS305PDB5/1198/0125300/W0703198/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

You might try the self clean function and see if the elements get hot. If they do then it is most likely the sensor.

Hopefully, that will fix your problem, but if not then it could be in the microcomputer which is a problem because it is a part that is hard to find.

I have a Whirlpool Self Clean oven Model number:RBS305PDS17. I used the self clean feature and now my oven will not heat up. All the digital controls work such as preheat and temperature, however there is...


Error code E2F3 indicates oven overheating, i.e. sensor is not cutting off heat. Replace the sensor, about $75 online. If you have done this more than twice, or if oven is acting strangely (for instance, broiler comes on during "bake" preheat), replace control board OEM part #8302994, about $170.
