My digital display is not working on my Whirlpool Super Capacity 465


Your problem is most likely the main circuit board for the control panel. That is really the brains for the oven. Ovens are funny things to put electronics in. Electronics do not like heat and what use is an oven that doesn't get hot. I have replaced several of these boards in the recent past and that is what you are most probably going to need to do. Should be an easy replacement. Just be careful removing and replacing the connectors. Some are very fragile (not a good thing to engineer in for a consumer product). I would recommend that you get the model number from the door tag and call one of the appliance replacement companies or Sears for a replacement control board. I would remove the original and make sure that you are ordering the right part number. Manufacturers have a bad habit of switching control boards mid production year, so you could end up with a replacement that will not work.

Whirlpool oven heats, but not up to setpoint


in your owner manual there is a section for adjusting (calibrating) the oven temps. Follow those instruction to adjust to what you read the temps inside the oven. i would also recommend that you dont use a $7.00 thermomenter from the grocery store.

Cant get my elecric single oven mm55524 to turn back on tried fuse in plug thats ok plz help


You need to check the continuity of the wires from the mains plug to the main heating coil. This means that the switch and the circuit to the heating coils will confirm the short. If the heating element is short then the main line should be removed to confirm the short and so the circuit will not trip.

The oven wont get hot, it will warm up and the broiler seems to get hot??


You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results. If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. To determine if the heating element is burned out, you will have to test the element for resistance across the 2 ends , with the meter set on the 200 scale if you get a good reading like 000 it would indicate that the part may be ok but if yoiu get a reading of a 01 or a 1 or lomething like this it would indicate tha part is bad then you need to replace it
However you will also want to
First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly. If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details. Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem. It won't broil

The oven does'nt seem to be able to heat up above 150, the fan is working, the bottem half of the oven does'nt seem to heating up. Is this fixable or do i need a new oven?


Hi.

If the part that is not heating is only the bottom element, and the top element is heating regularly, then you may need to replace the lower element.
Before replacement the element can be tested removing it from the cavity and reading Ohms at the element terminals, with a multimeter set at Rx1. Disconnect power before removing the element.

If both baking and broiling element do not heath above a certain temperature instead, then the part to be replaced is the temperature probe, still located inside the oven cavity.

Regards.

Re: my whirlpool digital oven


The red key sign is a lock against children. To cancel it you have to hold the two buttons at the same time for 5 seconds (you activate it the same way).

The STOP sign appears after the cooker switches of after a power cut. You just have to press the left button, and, using the right knob, set the time.
