Question about Kitchen Ranges

2 Answers

I have an electric wall-mount double Whirlpool self cleaning accubake oven. Can't fnd my manual, so I don't have the model number. It is 9 years old. Put on self clean feature, and it shorted out, and door remains locked. My breaker switch is not tripped. This happened a couple of years a go and the repair man said this was not uncommon. I cannot recall how he got the door opened, nor what the exact problem was. I would prefer to diagnose this myself...can you help me open the door?

If you can see through a grill just above the door, then you might can see the lock linkage, and get something to push the linkage over (be sure to disconnect power first.).

If you can't, you'll need to pull the unit out from the cabinet and access it from the top.

The problem is often a thermal fuse in the top of the oven. But if you can provide more detail info on the oven, I can investigate further.

Whirlpool self-cleaning feature not available

Because the features mention utilize 220 VAC power, I do not advise you attempt any corrections. Very dangerous; unless you are a trained technician. If the unit is in Warranty, get the Whirlpool folks out to you home ASAP.

There is a non-resettable fuse on the back of the oven that will have to be replaced. The oven will have to be removed from the wall and the back panel removed from the oven to access the fuse.

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?
