Question about Whirlpool GBS277PRS Stainless Steel Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

Circuitry may have gotten tripped during clean cycle. Oven will open and electronics work but neither element will heat.

Whirlpool Oven GBS277PRS01 -- Used self-clean option on oven and it completed cycle. Now, electronics still work, but elements won't heat. Perhaps the circuits got tripped due to the heat? Tried to cut off circuit breaker to re-set, but apparently the outlet for the oven isn't hooked to any breaker (not kidding -- we turned off EVERYTHING). is there a series of buttons that can be pushed to reset the circuitry? Whirlpool suggested new elements but I find it hard to believe they both went out together after the cleaning cycle.

Why is the oven stuck with a "Door Locked" error?

Just guessing but did you just use the clean cycle???? During clean, the oven temp gets high enough to trip the door lock safety thermostat. This is to keep owners from trying to open the door when oven is too hot from clean cycle. It sounds like that safety didn't reset to normal when it cooled off and therefore the door is still locked. With door locked you may need to get oven out of the wall and remove top cover to get to the lock system and thermostats. Make sure power is off before doing any of this.

Kenmore wall oven self clean 2005 neither element works. Shortly after we did a self clean cycle.

Many Kenmores were made by Whirlpool and these are notorious for tripping the thermal fuse. They are not usually not resetable and must be replaced. If there is a button to reset it then it should stay down. It is probably bad. Without a multimeter you could connect the wires together and isolate them from shorting against any metal by using electrical tape and temporarily powering up the unit to see if the elements start to heat. if they do then replace the thermal fuse and reconnect the wires properly. Just be careful.

After self-cleaning, oven will not heat. I waited at least an hour before I tried to pre-heat the oven and it will not heat.

There is a thermal fuse on the back of the oven that has blown, it is in series with the broil and bake elements so when it goes out neither element will work. You will have to pull the oven and take the back off. the fuse will be behind the rear panel. It usually has to red wires going to it. Once the fuse is replaced the oven should work fine. It is fairly common for this fuse to blow during the clean cycle due to a lack of air flow around the oven.

Oven door locked with code F06 - this was after it had been on self cleaning mode. any suggestions on how to open the door?

The unit has to be cool for the solenoid that powers the lock to open. If the unit is cool, unplug or switch the appliance off at the breaker. Problems after cleaning cycles are an extremely common occurrence. The heat often fries circuitry and causes all sorts of misery for consumers. If the oven does not reset, please look at your error code again. The codes are usually either 2 or 4 digits, not 3. I am not familiar with FO6, probably because the appliance is made for Spain? In any event, in the U.S., F0 is the electronic board behind the clock. Please try the unplug/power step and let me know if it doesn't work. Thanks.

Not heating up after cleaning

There is a thermal sensor mounted to the back of the oven if it over heats the sensor will disable the oven heating elements. replacing the part would allow the oven to heat but if you reuse the self cleaning it may go out again. some ovens need to be modified to prevent reoccurance during self cleaning cycle.

I recently put my oven through the self clean cycle then the next day neither the oven element or the broiler element will heat up. There is power to the control panel.

Probably the Thermal Overload Sensor burned out from the excessive heat during the cleaning cycle. It Is located on back side of oven.

Oven on RF263LXTT2 does not maintain a constant heat. Oven heats, but doesn't seem to continue heating at a constant heat during the baking process. Both coils heat up during the preheat. Seems like once...

The problem looks like a faulty electronic control. When you select baking, the broiling element should not come up.

Before replacing control assembly, test the temp probe located inside the cavity, check the wiring harness to temp probe and elements, and ensure that the fan is working if the oven is fan assisted.

Won't heat!!!

First, are the burners working right? It is possible that a breaker opened. Cycle your breakers off and then on. Its a shot....

How many elements in your oven? Sounds like one fried. Start the unit with the door open. See which element doesn't glow after a few minutes. Wait for cooldown, open the breakers and then remove it and take it to the appliance repair parts guy to test and replace. should have gotten an error code.

Not that? It will likely be the thermister controlling your temp sense.

Our oven's heating elements will not come on althought the display seems to work correctly.

Wekiwa, your TCO, (thermal cutout) probably opened during the high temps in self clean. You will have to remove the back panel and replace it. It should be just under the vent back there. Part number 4450934. You can ohm it out first to make sure, it will show open (no continuity) if bad. This is an easy job, won't take you that long. Kill power to the range before going back there. In doing a little more research on your model, I see there was a service flash where they recomend moving the TCO over to one side so the cleaning cycle doesn't affect the TCO. This may be covered by Whirlpool. You might want to call them and inquire. back.
