    We had a power outage and when the power came back on we attempted to use the oven. The display said; "Feature Not Available", I reset the oven at the power panel, then reset the oven at the display and it has continued to work properly.

Most common problems:
1. calrod unit not working(heating element) easy replacement
2. breaker tripped.(sometimes a double breaker will only trip one of the circuit breakers so you end up with half power)
good luck

SOURCE: OLD GE Wall Oven doesn't heat properly

On these older ovens ther is usually always 120 volts on the elements at all times.
If you check across the element ends with it in bake you should read 240V. If not, there is a problem with the control. With the voltage drop you describe, it sounds like you are losing power on one line of voltage coming to the element.
Post back to let me know what you find out or if you have any questions.

SOURCE: We have a whirlpool oven model #RBS305PDB8 last

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 degrees), 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

Info: http://catalog.selcoproducts.com/item/3-4-disc-thermostats/surface-mount-automatic-reset-open-on-rise/pn-5113?&seo=110
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 degrees), so they have to be bent to 30 degrees for the wires to fit behind the back panel.

Recommended 'airstream type' thermostats:

They last 3-5 years depending how much you use your stove.
Disconnect POWER to the stove, remove the screws holding the lower element to the back of the inside of the stove, pull out carefully and remove the 2 screws holding the wires on. Check the element with an ohm meter, it should read 0 (zero or very close) resistance on an ohm meter. You may also take it to a store that sells replacements ($25) and they may check it for you.

I have a double whirlpool fan oven. The fan doesn't always work, seems to stick. What do I need to do to get it working? We've had it less than 3 years but I've never cleaned it. Is this why it doesn't...


Do you mean the fan inside the oven box in the back wall. This is the fan for the Convection bake etc. If so this is how it works..

a) Bake feature - that fan does not come on

b) Convection bake - that fan comes on during bake cycle

So that fan works for several features but not for all. It helps to circulate the hot air inside better for a more even, fast bake.

Do you mean the fan in the control board area. It is there to get the hot air trapped in the oven walls out. Not the heat inside the oven bake box area. This fan works differently depending the model and/or brand. Some models fan works from the time you start. Some models fan comes on only when that area reaches a certain high temperature.

I hit the bake button on my oven and after 10 secs it says preheat and thats all that happens nothing else no heat at all


Hello,
Your oven will continue to indicate that it is preheat mode until the thermostat senses the proper set temperature. If you are getting no heat then you will need to address that issue. This could be many things but the most notorious would be the heating element. Could be the control panel as well. Some ovens have a knob for preheat, bake and clean with a separate knob to adjust the temperature. Make sure both are set properly.
Regards, Tony

I have a whirlpool accubake duo, super capacity 465 and when I try to bake something the oven wont stay on...how do I get the oven to stay on


What do you mean that it wont stay on? Does it turn off and on during cooking? Does it just go off and wont come back on? The oven thermostat regulates the heat in the oven and the oven element and the oven indicator light will turn off and on during cooking. If it stayed on constantly on full oven element power everything would burn.

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.

My oven wont heat up?


Hello there:
first chevck to see if the broil feature will work but if both the broil and bake feature does not work meaning it will not heat up if you have selected either the bake or broil follow these solutions that i have provided for you .
It won't bake or broil If neither the bake nor the broiler heating elements heat, but the range burners still work, the clock may be set for a timed or self-cleaning cycle. Check to be sure the clock buttons and knobs are set properly. If your clock has a knob that says "push for man(ual)", push the knob in and try the baking and broiling elements again. If it still does not operate properly, you probably have a defect in the thermostat, selector switch, or common wiring. If the oven does not have a separate bake/broil/etc. selector switch, the problem may be with the thermostat. But it's not easy to check the selector switch or thermostat for proper operation. If you suspect a problem in this area, call a qualified appliance repair technician.

Whirlpool oven ''feature not available''


That happened to my fairly new Whirlpool double oven. But I remembeedr the power in the neighborhood had flickered earlier in the day. So I went to the circuit breaker and shutoff power to the oven for about 30 seconds and turned back on. Everything normal now. I just assumed the slight flicker in the power affected to programming.

Whirlpool Electric Wall Oven RBS275PDQ6


had same problem, had computer checked out by profesisonal. Was ok. But it seems it is the control pad that clean cycle screws up. Try this (thanks to my wife and her experimental prowess). 1. turn oven on to custom broil. 2. push down temp button to 375. 3. press bake button. 4. You should now have up or down temp. We think you have to get past pre heat cycle in order for this to work. But work it does.
