Question about Whirlpool 30" Self-Cleaning Freestanding Electric Range - White-on-White
Bake element work but broiler willnot come on replaced broiler element
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

If you can gain access to the clock you could find the wires that goes to the bake element - if you can measure and confirm the resistance of the element chances you may have also fried the relay of the board - check it out

SOURCE: broiler works, as do burners.
jdelvecchio5Does the igniter (glow bar) come on whenever the bake function is selected.?
If the glow bar does not come on the safety valve will not open - no bake burner. check the electrical harness first then Try changing the igniter (glow bar first) before changing the safety valve/regulator.

I had the same problem and followed the process listed above....yes, I
did unplug/turn off the circuit and am alive to share this update!
Right off I noticed that the ribbon cable was loose. For those who have
tinkered around with other electronics such as a PC, etc., note that
this ribbon cable is not secured by the connector (atleast in my case).
Reseated the cable and turned the power on. Voila- the bake option
works. Tested it by turning it on for 20-30 seconds. Touched the bake
element and got proof that it was working fine (via a singe of the ring
About three minutes or so later, the display started to beep with an error code - E0 F2. A shorted keypad is what it stands for. The clock was still operable. I could still select the bake option, broil option, etc. Ran a test bake cycle but it turned off after a minute or so and started to display the E0 F2 code again.
Started the process all over ie turn power off, take panel off, reseat ribbon cable. Turn power on and test by holding the Cancel button for five seconds. Still displays the E0 F2 error. Waited for 10 minutes but this time no more beeping or error display. Ran a preheat cycle for 4+ minutes without any problems. The oven warms up and the bake element glows red. Hopefully, all is well. Will see what it does when we bake something the next time.
Thanks to PropHeadTwo and others for their contributions.

Hi Chris Stewart - If the bake element and the top of the range works, but just not the heating element, then you possibly have a bad broiler element or connection. However, if you are experiencing other performance difficulties, then the control board may possibly be faulty and needs replacing. Consult a professional for an accurate diagnosis.
