Whirlpool oven issue

My oven (Whirlpool mod#GY396LXPB00) will not bake, I think it's a control panel problem but I'm not sure.  The bake button does nothing!  The custom broil and self clean cycle both function. The door locks when you activate the self clean and works properly. It started acting up the other day, my wife tried to bake something and couldn't adjust the temp., when you push the bake button it starts at 350 automatically and then you adjust from there, well it would not adjust, the up and down keys didn't funtion. So we used the oven at 350 and then it wouldn't shut off, the off button didn't function, I had to go open the breaker to shut the oven off. When I reset the breaker (allowed time to cool) I had my current problem, no bake funtion at all. Any input or advice would be appreciated! THANKS

secondary question:  do both the top and bottom elements function on a self cleaning cycle? I let it run for about 5-10 min and only my top element worked.

Re: Whirlpool oven issue

Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

The oven will not light on my Whirlpool gas oven Mod SF368LEPQ 2. The stove top burners still light.

Sounds like you need an bake element ignitor if the bake doesn't work but if the broil also doesn't work, it could be the electronic clock/timer control. the part number for the bake ignitor is 8054129 .Best off to call a reliable service company such as Sears.

Digital oven will not turn on, I press bake/broil it reads ''Loc''

Look on the control panel for an icon that looks like a padlock near one of the buttons. Hold that button down until it beeps and that should unlock the panel.

Broil turns ON when pressing BAKE button on RBS275PD Whirlppol oven

Our Whirlpool oven just started doing the same thing!!!! The Delay Start Time (setting it for one minute ahead) and then Start works just fine.  But we fried the tops of three loaves of homemade bread!!!!
Is Whirlpool just a bad brand for ovens?
