Question about Whirlpool RBD306PD Electric Double Oven
I ran a cleaning cycle on the lower oven. Now it wont heat in any mode. Controls still work normally as does the top oven. Blower kicks on as expected and oven thinks it is heating but no heat. I think it must either be the Terms-Fix (PS974726) or the Thermal Sensor (PS374693). I really don't want to buy both parts unless I need to. Any guesses as to which problem is the most likely. Neither element in the lower oven gets warm. (Like I said, top oven works perfectly so I am guessing it's not the control board).
The answer is the thermal sensor, mine has gone bad everytime I clean the oven. Solution, run a fan on the oven while you are self cleaning, this keeps the outside heat away from the unit. Pain to replace the sensor, its in the middle back of the oven, have to pull the whole unit out.

I wish I could give you the answer you need without checking it first. The truth is, unless you verify a component with a meter, there's no way to know if it's good or bad. A multimeter on the 'ohms' scale, to do a 'continuity test' is the only way to test a 'thermal switch' or the element itself. If you could get a meter, I could give you the instructions to test, which would require you to take things apart to get to the components...?
