Question about Whirlpool GS460 Gas Kitchen Range

Whirlpool super capacity 465

I have a problem with my oven. When the oven is on for a while{baking a turkey} the oven turns off, the display goes out, and most of the time the display turns back on but the power failure light is on and the clock has to be reset. I took the cover off behind the upright, display board and found a four prong connector that I think is the problem. I can wiggle it around and make display go off and on. My question is how can I tighten up connector if that is the problem.

    Yes, we have the same gas range and it turns off during baking, but the display panel does stay on. We don't know it has turned off until we check our food and clearly see it has not baked - so frustrating! We are thinking of just buying a new gas range.

    my whirlpool gas supercapacity 465 oven will turn off while cooking. what is the solution please?

    My whirlpool gas oven switches on, the display says it is heating, then it cools down - it may relight once or twice but eventuallt stops. The display says it is heating but I have to press cancel and then start it over again. It will restart but switch off again after a few minutes. Is it a gas flow problem or an electrical problem?

    We turn the oven on, it ignites, and starts to raise temp, then suddenly quits and the display shows PF. The only solution I have found is to unplug the oven, wait, and then plug back in.

    Today, the ignitor system has failed completely - I do not get any spark for any of the four top burners , or for the oven.

    This is a Whirlpool Super Capacity 465. We just finished roasting the Christmas turkey and the oven is now on the fritz.

    We are having a smiliar problem, the oven begins to heat but then a "E 2 P-1" appears. You can restart it but turning it off but within a minute or two the same error message appears.

Whirlpool super capacity 465- Oven will light and warm up to temp. The ignighter in the oven will then try restart to maintain temp but will not light. Will relight after several attempts. Takes 2 to 3 times longer to bake items. Have plenty of gas pressure.

I use the plastic zip ties to hold connecters on cars fairly often I would think this part of the oven is cool enough.

You may want to put a thermometer in your oven and check the temperature. It sounds like it is too hot and cooks the outside before the inside is even started.

I have a whirlpool accubake duo, super capacity 465 and when I try to bake something the oven wont stay do I get the oven to stay on

What do you mean that it wont stay on? Does it turn off and on during cooking? Does it just go off and wont come back on? The oven thermostat regulates the heat in the oven and the oven element and the oven indicator light will turn off and on during cooking. If it stayed on constantly on full oven element power everything would burn.
