Question about Whirlpool Ovens
I have a Whirlpool built-in double electric oven. The house was built around 1984; I believe this is the original oven. I can't find the model number anywhere. My husband was trying to repair the element in the top oven. The wires connecting the element to the oven fell back into the hole and behind the oven. How do we get them out? We're trying to sell our house and are desparate to get this fixed as soon as possible. Thanks for your help!
I just had the same problem with our Electrolux wall oven. I don't expect you are still having problems 3 years later, but thought I would post for the benefit of anyone else with this issue.
Firstly, turn your power off. I then had to unscrew two screws on each side of the oven door which allowed the oven shell to come forward. You should then see the power cord which you can remove from the powerpoint. If your oven is hard-wired in, then I would definitely call an electrician.
Once I removed the oven, I placed it on the floor and unscrewed a few screws that held the top and back casing on. After removing the casing, you can see the wiring and you just need to push the fallen wire back through.
Before you put the casing back on, you could replace your element just in case the wire falls through again.
