Whirlpool Gold double electric oven Model GBD277PDB1 lights

Approximately 3 years ago we had to have the touchpad panel/computer board replaced for the oven referenced above. Now the lights in both ovens won't shut off, and the tech says the computer board has to be replaced (again), at a cost (parts and labor) of $450. Does this sound like the proper solution? Is it common for this model's computer board to have to be replaced every few years? The oven is approximately 8 years old.

Thank you for any help/suggestions you can provide.

In answer to your question no not that your tech is bad his stuff is honest most of the costs are parts what i would is do contact whirlpool cust assistance and talk to them dont confuse cust assistace also known as custmer relations with with customer service they are not the same cust relations could give you the parts and then you can pay labor if your going to keep the oven see about a service contract on it ge or whirlpool both have good ones whirlpool cares about there cust so be nice when you talk to them like my mom had whirlpool ive allways had whirlpool but i just dont understand whats going on with this oven etc good luck

Replaced control panel and keypad 1 1/2 years ago seen the error codes now I was self cleaning oven everything went off no error codes or anything house breaker ok PLEASE help.

Self clean is hard on controls. I do not recommend self clean. Kills expensive parts. If the temp goes above 300 in the control panel, a control panel fuse will melt, killing the power to the control.
It looks like this:

Hi - I have a whirlpool gold series electric double oven. The error message is E1 F2. Anyone know how to fix this?

it could be the following
Taking a Quick Look
The E1 F2 error message indicates the control board thinks the touch panel has been unplugged from the board or it cannot read the switches.
How it Works
The panels on these ovens utilizes a switching matrix to constantly monitor all the buttons for a key press. By using a matrix for switch input, many buttons can be read by the processor using very few wires. The unfortunate side of a switch matrix is if any one wire becomes damaged, an entire row of switches on the matrix will no longer be usable since they cannot be seen by the control board.

getting a qualified engineer to check this touch panel and suspect touch panel maybe defective and need replacing.

I hope this was helpful

Whirlpool Gold double oven - started beeping then all lights on the control panel went out. Reset the circuit breaker which makes the oven beep but still have no lights. Oven will not operate.

I was just looking over a manual for a late model double oven. Their is a thermal limit going into the controls that will open if the temp rises enough to harm the controls. They look like this one.2605a73.jpg That kills all power to the control and you will see nothing on the display.

This manual will give an idea where to look:

Key board will not light up...Nothing....Oven light will come on......TTT

Whirlpool RBD305DQ15 Electric double wall oven, the control panel does not light up so you can't tell what you are doing. Do I need to replace the whole board or is there a fuse to replace?

Whirlpool Gold Series double oven electric model GBD307-PDQ309

Usually this is a touchpad and control panel fault but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance.

With the model number of the oven we could look up the code and be more specific about the problem.
