Question about Whirlpool RBS305PD Electric Single Oven
The element blew in our oven which also has the convection element. I am looking for the electrical schematic for the plug in.
There are four connectors. two yellow, one white and one bronze colour. What is the proper orientation.
Once they are plugged in is there anything else to do or should the oven work. The model is WBP58500

does your unit have a button to open door or do you just pull it to open it they are sometimes really stiff at first if it is button then it will need lock replacing about 60 pound if it just pulls open then these can seem stuck but will open as there is no mechanism to open the door so it will open but might take a bit of force the first few times untill it wares in a bit so dont be afraid of using force as it will open post back if you have any trouble and i will find a manuall and see what it says in their ok hope this is some help.........................................

I fixed my problem by disconnecting the control board, cleaning all the contact points (including the ribbon cable) with alcohol and reconnecting everything as tight as possible.
I did notice that one of the contacts had become very corroded, so I scrubbed this one for a while. Prior to this I had done some selective unplugging and replugging (ribbon cable in particular) to no avail (each of these attempts powered on to beeping and no display).
Not a fancy solution, but it did work!

Emge & Associates is investigating gas and electric ovens manufactured by Whirlpool, including such popular brands as Whirlpool, Jenn-Air, KitchenAid and Maytag.
The firm is investigating reports that the electronic control panel on certain models is subject to failure after a limited number of uses of the appliance’s “self-cleaning” setting. While most foods are cooked at temperatures reaching 375 degrees, the “self-cleaning” setting raises the interior oven temperature to 1,400 degrees. Due to defects in the design and or manufacturing, the electronics contained on many ranges are damaged by extremely high heat. Repairs to damaged control panels typically cost in excess of $300 per replacement.
If you have experienced failure of the control panel in your range after using the “self-cleaning” setting, you can join this investigation by contacting Emge & Associates at (800) 629-3409 or (619) 618-2974.

Yes , the element is easy to replace
Remove the cover at the rear of the oven, there you will see the element, undo the screws securing it, and replace the element.
This should solve your prob.

There is a thermal fuse mounted on the back of the oven that feeds power to both elements. This fuse has open up. The control panel gets power via a different path and still lights up.
