Sounds like the wires connecting your control panel to the individual heating elements have either shorted out or been disconnected. Try taking off the control panel board and testing the connections (the four on the sides of the circuit board in the middle, and the two five pin and one three pin connector on the mainboard). If they are good, then your problem lies in the control board itself and will require a replacement from Whirlpool. Depending on if you have the touch sensor board or a push switch, it can run upwards of a few hundred bucks.

SOURCE: The indicator lights and clock

From what you are describing, the power to your stove is incorrect. The diagram indicates the voltages that should be present at the receptacle, I suspect one of the 110 volt legs is bad at the receptacle or circuit breaker. The clock operates on the good 110 volt leg. The burners need both 120 volt legs to be good because the burners and oven need 220 volts to work.

Stovetop & Oven not heating but clock, lights, & vent fan are working


It sounds like you are getting only one side of the power to your stove. the lights will work but no heat. your power breaker has two sides for an electric stove. It may be one side isn't reset properly. make sure that you snap the breaker completely off and then completely back on. if that doesn't work perhaps an electrician is in order or one side of your power cord has burned off at the terminal block. I have had this happen.

No heat from burners or oven after relocating stove


Hi Ron - From what you have described if neither the burners nor oven turns on make sure the electrical connecting is 240V. The oven light and clock portions only required 115V. The clock and oven light working may indicate an electrical circuit breaker supplying the range is tripped or a fuse is blown. Confirm household circuit is correct and the range cord is properly wired to the terminal block.

When our family returned from out of town, we had no heat. I plugged in a small space heater close to the stove to help heat the kitchen. A bit later, I started to make toast and a breaker flipped. Flipped...


Power must be reaching the stove for the lights to work so it would seem something has gone wrong inside the stove. Only exposing the internal connections and testing the circuits will trace the fault.

Stove top or oven doesn't heats. range type is a accubake system


Have you check the outlet to see if its geting power, if not, check the main breaker in the breaker box, you may have to turn the breaker to the off postion and then back to the on postion, if power is going to the outlet your stove should work.

My oven and stove top doesn't work


Being that I am not familiar with this particular oven/range, I can only make a suggestion. But the clock most likely runs on a different circuit, since it requires much less power to operate than do the oven and range. The heating elements are linked together, so if you have a short in a wire, or a switch that has gone bad, it could affect the entire heating system, if it was in the proper place. The best way to check would be to open the top and rear panels and inspect the wires and look for any damage. Also look for a fuse or something that may be blown. Before you do any of that, please disconnect the power from the unit. It is no fun getting shocked!

Stove won't heat


Oven was working, I had it on pre-heat, then I turned on the stove top, but the burners won't heat. When I turn on the stove top the stove makes a short BUZZ noise and the clock area lights up, when the burner is turned off all the lights go out. Please help, food prepared.
Thank You
