Question about Whirlpool GS460 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

I have had my Whirlpool Super Capacity 465 (model YSF315PEGQ) gas range for almost 9 years. This is the second time that the oven has stopped working - and by that, I mean that when you press the bake button, you see the glow in the bottom of the oven, but it never seems to light. It takes forever to reach the correct temperature, and it appears that when it is trying to maintain the temperature during the baking cycle, you can smell gas (sometimes I smell gas when it is trying to light). As well, when we turn on any of the burners, shortly after they have lit, you can smell gas. Is it worth repairing this unit, or should we replace it?

The average life for ranges is about ten years. With the issues you have you are looking at at least 200 in repairs, I would replace. Sorry

Oven won't work. Display says "LOC" Top of range works


Try pressing Cancel then press and hold Cancel and Cook and Hold together. Hold the two keypad buttons for 3+ seconds. This toggles on and off the Control Lock for several models of Whirlpool ranges, including the WDE150LVB0.

If this doesn't help, please add a comment with your range model. The Super Capacity 465 is series of ranges, not just a specific one. The model number is on the range inside the drawer on the rim of the unit. I'll be glad to check if the control lock for your model uses a different combination of keys. Many manuals for Whirlpool products are available here: https://www.whirlpool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OCManualsLiteratureSearchView?catalogId=10561&langId=-1&storeId=10211&krypto=5QgxQhneFliXuEuX564wSQ%3D%3D&ddkey=http:OCManualsLiteratureSearchView .

I hope this helps.

WHIRLPOOL Sup Cap 465 oven turns on for 3 sec, then shuts off


The flame sensor is dirty or bad.

When the unit does not sense flame after ignition, the gas valve shuts down the system.

They can become corroded or dirty, but usually just need to be replaced.

Contact whirlpool for warranty info. If the unit is under warranty, they should send you the parts for free. If not, they can direct you in how to order the part.

I have the same problem intermittently on my Super Cap 465. After reading the following quote from another site, "There have been cases where radio waves, electronic signals and sometimes something as strange as dimmers in lights have caused some weird problems with some computer panels in stoves like these", I tried turning off lights that might be on the same circuit and wouldn't you know it, the oven igniter circuit worked.
