Start Button Failed on Whirlpool Electric Range Model GY396LXPQ02

I have a Whirlpool Gold electric range Model GY396LXPQ02 and yesterday the START button on the control panel stopped working. The time still shows and all the other buttons work but the START is not responding. The oven light still works as well as the cooktop.  I do I go about testing the Control panel as the defect vs the Migration control board?

It sounds like you have an oven problem rather than a start button problem. Is there an error code? If so list your model and error code on a search engine and you will find error codes. Or you can just list make model number and error codes and you can find a chart of Whirlpool error codes. I have done this with no problem. That should tell you the exact problem and things to try.

It may be neither issue you mentioned. It could be a bad element or a short.

Whirlpool GY396LXPQ02 middle buttons not working


Look in the manual to see if it says anything about a child lock mode. Failing that, you'd probably need to replace the button panel/circuit boards

Hi; We have a Whirlpool Gold range and stove - roughly two years old. The stove works but the oven and all functions ie clock set, timer do not work at all, not even a beep or anything appears on the creen...


Try holding down the off button for 5 seconds and if this does not work the start button for 5 seconds. Unplug for 5 minutes first. Then try holding the button and then set the clock.

Whirlpool Gold electric range control panel not working


I live in a new 500 home subdivision. The contractor ordered all Whirlpool Gold products including Electric and Electric/Gas Ranges. Many of my neighbors' panels have gone out! I'm talking about epedemic trouble. My son has had his oven panel (separate from stovetop) fail within the first year. Thank God it was under warranty...this is not a cheap replacement (he had the sensor touch pad. I just had my oven pad fail. I tried to set the clock for Daylight Savings and found out half my panel is out! The fix is a replacement of the panel. Depending on which model (push or sensor) look to spend at least a couple of hundred bucks. We have the Whirlpool Gold microwave panel and so far so good. My neighbor and my son's both went out! They just tossed the two year old products and replaced them with another brand. Sorry to break you the news...class action anyone?

E1 F5 displays cannot use the oven whirlpool gold range When I triy to bake it doesnt let me it beeps twice an didsplay E1 F5, I pushed all cancel button on the range to no avail


The E1- F5 error is a door lock error.

The control (TIMER) has likely failed in this instance - BUT...

Sometimes when you disconnect power to a range and reconnect it the electronic range control gets confused.
You should disconnect power again for 15 seconds and reconnect and see if that helps.

If it doesn't cure the E1- F5 error hold the bake button in until E0- F2 appears in the display.
This is the error for a stuck button on the keypad and is the way to clear the memory of the electronic range control.

Sometimes these work, but if the control has failed it won't make any difference.
