Question about Whirlpool RF262LXS Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven stopped 5 to 10 minutes after pressing START

I have some issues on my Whirlpool electric range. Model RF262LXST. The cooktop works fine but the oven stopped working 5 to 10 minutes after pressing the START button.

Here is the detail of the issues. Please give me some feedback and advice. Thanks in advance!

Bake function problem: Turned Bake on, oven became hot, after 5 to 10 minutes, oven display blank or flashing (sometimes with flashing clock time, sometimes just blank)

Broil function problem: Turned Broil on, then pushed oven light button once, oven display turned off automatically

I had to turn on one of the cooktop elements to bring the oven display back on. The oven failed again in a few minutes when using Bake or Broil.

How can I get self clean to start?

To Self-Clean Using AUTO-CLEAN

1. Press AUTO CLEAN.
2. Press the HOUR and MIN "up" or "down" arrow pads to set the desired self-clean cycle time.
3. Press START. The oven door will automatically lock. "CLn," "LOCKED," "ON," "CLEAN," the Cooktop Lockout icon, and the time remaining will be displayed.
4. When the self-clean cycle is complete "END" will be displayed, and "PUSH"/"OFF" will blink alternately.
5. Press OFF/CANCEL. "LOCKED," "END," and the Cooktop Lockout icon will disappear from the display. "PUSH"/"OFF" will stop blinking, and clock will show the time of day.
6. Once the oven is completely cooled, remove ash with a damp cloth.

I hope this helps and thank you for a model number that made this possible for me to assist you. Good Luck

Oven control issue on "YGY396LXPS01" Whirlpool electric range

Most likely you just need the main control board, and not the touch pad with the ribbon that goes to the board. Because the technician could not tell for sure he or she did not want to hang themselves installing a part when both are needed. The only sure way is to replace a part and see if it works usually changing the board fixes the problem, rarely are both needed.

this was dated about two weeks ago, hope it is fixed

Start Button Failed on Whirlpool Electric Range Model GY396LXPQ02

It sounds like you have an oven problem rather than a start button problem. Is there an error code? If so list your model and error code on a search engine and you will find error codes. Or you can just list make model number and error codes and you can find a chart of Whirlpool error codes. I have done this with no problem. That should tell you the exact problem and things to try.

It may be neither issue you mentioned. It could be a bad element or a short.

Whirlpool electric range won't work

We read on another site that sometimes an electical surge messes something up and that if you unplug the range for a few minutes it will reset. So we unplugged our range and when we plugged it in again it worked fine.

Whirlpool Gold electric range control panel not working

I live in a new 500 home subdivision. The contractor ordered all Whirlpool Gold products including Electric and Electric/Gas Ranges. Many of my neighbors' panels have gone out! I'm talking about epedemic trouble. My son has had his oven panel (separate from stovetop) fail within the first year. Thank God it was under warranty...this is not a cheap replacement (he had the sensor touch pad. I just had my oven pad fail. I tried to set the clock for Daylight Savings and found out half my panel is out! The fix is a replacement of the panel. Depending on which model (push or sensor) look to spend at least a couple of hundred bucks. We have the Whirlpool Gold microwave panel and so far so good. My neighbor and my son's both went out! They just tossed the two year old products and replaced them with another brand. Sorry to break you the news...class action anyone?
