Question about Whirlpool Accubake RF362LXTB (Dual Fuel) Electric Kitchen Range

2 Answers

Whirlpool Electric Range RF362LXTB caught fire

While using the cooktop, flames began to shoot from the back of the stove. After we put out- noticed the entire box at the rear base of the stove was melted solid. Range is 15 months old. (Warranty is 12 months)

Called the electrician who tested the outlet and it is fine.

Is this worth being repaired? Any recourse with manufacturer?

I am dealing with the same exact issue as you. 16 month old RF362LXTB. Back buss bar red wire is melted along with the plastic. Looks like it broke away from the plastic and shorted out on the cover. Tripped the breaker as well. My understanding is that you should replace the breaker as well since this was a short.

Stove sparks but doesn't light


Hello,

If gas flows and burner sparks,the holes in burner near where the electrode(spark plug) is are clogged. A safety pin or paper clip pushed through those burner holes will clear the blockage

Good luck
I hope this helps,if it does please give me a 4 thumbs up rating&and perhaps a testimonial :)

Whirlpool Electric Range - Setting Timer Stove says door


It may be that the door interlock is faulty.

It will not turn on if it thinks the door is open. It will probably work fine if in manual mode - as this is not used.

If out of warranty, check the door interlock for anything broken off, and with a meter to ensure correct operation.

If this is ok, check cabling back to controller. This board may need repair/ replacement if faulty.
