If your oven has internal fuses, a wiring or component problem could have caused a fuse to blow.

THINGS TO CHECK:

the broil element
is the heating element that is found at the top of the oven and produces a very high heat for broiling. If the broil element isn't working, you should first do a visual inspection for signs that the element has blistered or separated. If the element appears normal then you can check for continuity with a multi-meter. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test. Remove the back panel and locate the terminals for the broil element and inspect the terminals and wires for signs of overheating or damage.

If there is no continuity then the element will need to be replaced. If the wires are damaged then they will need to be repaired. If the element is ok then you will need to check the broil circuit to determine the cause. This involves live voltage checks and should only be performed by qualified persons. Components to check include fuses, if the range is equipped, and oven control thermostat or electronic control.


The bake element
is the heating element that is found at the bottom of the oven. Most electric ovens use both the bake element and the broil element in a bake cycle, with the bake element performing 90% of the heating. If the bake element isn't working, the oven may not heat. To help determine if the bake element is defective you should first do a visual check. If the element is blistered or separated then it should be replaced. If the element appears to look normal, then turn the oven on to a bake function for a minute and then turn it off.

Check the element for signs of heating and if it is still cold then it may be defective. Disconnect the power and then remove the back panel. First check the wires as they may have become loose or corroded. If the element appears to be fine visually, test it for continuity with a multi-meter. If the element is burned or no longer has continuity, it will need to be replaced.

The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Oven Control Panel Thermal Fuse

If the display is totally out it is likely the thermal fuse this is located where the wire connectors plug into the board it looks like a small resistor in a platic shrinkwrap type sleeve. test it with a continuity meter.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Double Oven RBD305PDB7 - Upper Oven Won't Heat

I have the single oven of this style and I had to replace the thermocouple (part number 4450934) on the back of the oven three times (used the cleaning cycle three times). After using the cleaning cycle, the oven would not heat so each time I had to pull the oven out from the wall to access the back so I could change the part. Once a new part was put on the back of the oven, it worked fine. To pull the oven out, open the oven door and look down by the doors hinges. On each side you will see a screw that's holding the side molding on. Remove the screws and then the molding. That will give you access to the screws that hold the oven into the framing around the oven. Remove the screws and then you can pull the oven out to access the back to change the thermocouple. The oven is heavy so you may want some help to get out. It is not a one man job, maybe a one man and wife job. It is heavy. I hope this helps. Better late than never.

SOURCE: oven won't heat

Unplug the power cord for thirty minutes, this should reset the oven.
If this still does not work do the following:
Press clean and then cancel. This will reset the appliance.

If the error does not clear , then during the self cleaning cycle, the high temperature has probably damaged the temperature sensor probe, and it must be replaced.

From your description it sounds that the board is the problem. I found the control panel you need for a lot less than $200 though.
I found one online from a store that I have bought from many times. Part and shipping is about $153. They sell brand name stuff too and they have great service. I hope that this helped you.

Good Luck from a bored repair man!

    Whirlpool self cleaning oven Model RBD245 door will not open after self cleaning cycle


    Whirlpools are notorious for tripping the thermal fuse on the back of the oven but there is a thermal fuse to the control board also on most electronic control models. It is a good chance you will need to replace both fuses.

    Many ovens have a bi-metal thermal fuse-also called a thermal limit switch-that protects the oven from overheating. The oven thermal fuse trips when the temperature in the oven gets too hot. After the thermal fuse trips, the oven won't heat. If the thermal fuse trips after the self-cleaning cycle, try resetting the fuse by turning off electricity to the oven, removing the exterior back panel, and pushing the reset button. If the fuse tripped during normal operation, replace it. If the problem persists, the electronic oven control board might require replacement. Reset the thermal fuse after replacing the control board.

    Clean mode electric current went off was off 10mentis when it came back on oven didnt


    I have a whirlpool double oven too and replaced the control board last year the problem started with a F06 code and would reset when I power cycled for a while until it completely quit. Changing the control board fixed that problem. I just used my self cleaning cycle recently and the oven went completely blank on the control panel. Power cycle didn't do any thing. I checked 2 of the thermal cutoff fuses that are shown on most of the parts listing but the problem was with one that is not shown. The link below will get you to the part I replaced it's the power feed to the control board. Turns out that the worst thing you can do to your oven is use the self clean feature. Oven Thermal Fuse

    Kitchenade


    Kitchenaid is made by Whirlpool. They have had a problem with the self clean getting too hot and shutting down the control board thermal fuse. If you can access the control board. (power off) there should be a small inline thermal fuse attached to a connector usually on the far right of the control board. It is encased in a clear plastic tube. Test this for continuity. If it is bad replace this fuse and the display should come back on. They also have a thermal fuse on the back of the oven that usually goes out at the same time. If the oven and broil don't work after fixing the control board thermal fuse. then you will have to pull the oven out enough to take the back panel off and check this fuse.

    Our microwave MH6150oxhq-1 has worked perfectly until yesterday when i went to press start the clock numbers started flashing and poof dead!! It seems like I have NO power to the unit, Is there a way to...


    If it doesn't come back after you unplug it and plug it in again, you probably have a blown fuse or thermal protector. If it is a thermal protector, just replace it - they do sometimes break spontaneously. If it is a fuse, have the high-voltage capacitor checked to see if it shorted. Generally if the capacitor is shorted, it is a good idea to also replace the high-voltage diode since it carried the short-circuit current that blew the fuse.

    I assume by "clock numbers ... flashing" you mean the normal timer countdown began. If there was abnormal behavior on the display you have a controller problem. This could be anything from a failed power supply capacitor (relatively cheap fix) to a bad controller chip (only available on a replacement control board that costs almost as much as the oven itself unless you get lucky enough to find one on a junker of the same model).

    Convection upper oven not heating. lower oven working fine. blower on upper oven working fine and pre heat shows when oven us turned on but upper oven does not heat.


    I Have worked on quite a few of these in the last few weeks, i have found that about 50% of these problems are caused by the control board and the other 50% caused by the thermal fuse, you can check the fuse by removing the unit from the wall and checking for continuity at the thermal fuse. If the fuse is in fact ok then it is the board that is not sending the correct amount of power to the elements. So the Power Control Board is what will need to be replaced, you can purchase both of these parts at, http://www.reliableparts.com/ by using your model number.

    Please rate my solution if it was helpful to you.

    If you need more in depth information or pictures on how to remove and take this machine apart, feel free to ask.

    Whirlpool gdb307 oven display not working after storm


    Some things to consider:

    1. There are two thermal fuses on this unit
    - one fuse is in the bake/broil element circuit and if blown, would cause no-heat but the display would still light.
    - the other thermal fuse is in series with power to the control board, if blown the control board display would be dark and no oven related functions would work

    2. There is a low voltage transformer that supplies power to the control board that sometimes gets damaged by lightning surges. This would also cause the display to be dark with no oven functionality.

    3. We repair a number of these control boards that are damaged by lightning storms. Here's a link to a related article that might be helpful:

    Whirlpool oven stopped working after self cleaning


    If the display still works but neither the Bake or the Broil elements wont heat up, it's likely that the Thermal Cutoff has opened and has not reset itself. This is a common problem after self Cleaning.
    The fix is to replace the Thermal cutoff which requres you to pull the oven and remove the back panel to get at the thermal cutoff.
    What happens is that in Self Clean, both Broil and bake elements are used and the oven gets so hot that the middle skin (between the oven liner and the back panel, where the thermal cutoff is mounted gets so hot the thermal cutoff operates. It should reset itself but sometimes doesn't and then you have to replace it.

    Whirpool rbd275yPDT11 no power after auto clean


    I printed down the installation sheets. I could not locate the thermal fuse on the control panel (which was the easiest to get to without removing the oven) so I went ahead and removed the oven. The upper and lower thermal fuses were fine. I put in back into the wall and my husband found the control panel thermal fuse--it was in-line--so we tested it and it was bad. I could not find anyone online that carried this fuse-or even knew the name of it. After much hard work we finally got the info off it--Microtemp KLBALY G4A00 TE 110C. Nowhere could I find a replacement except for something I am hoping is comparable online at Goodman (?). So while I am waiting for the fuse, I went to Radio Shack who had a thermal inline fuse rated at 128C for coffee pots and hair dryers. Also got some fully insulated crimp on connectors. Hooked it up and it works--havent cooked yet--to do cookies soon to test it. So far it seems like everything is running ok. I WILL NOT EVER USE THE AUTO CLEAN again. I dont get why the company has let it lie without helping unknowing consumers
