Whirlpool Electric Range: m/n GJSP84900

The front right element is not working. All the rest work fine.
The element on this range are not accessible from the top. It is a smooth top range.
When I flip up the top and look underneath I can see where all the elements are located but it is covered with a metal housing.

How can I chenge my element. If I had a service manual I'm sure I could figure it out.

SOURCE: Whirlpool oven that does not broil

Nabril, looks like you have a thermal fuse in the broil circuit. Take your meter and on the control board go to connector P2-2, should be a blue wire. Pull the connector off and see if you have continuity from the blue wire to the red wire on the terminal block (where the cord connects) power off, wires off. If you don't have continuity, it's probably that fuse. If you do, the only other thing I would think it could be would be the relay itself. The schematic does not show the placement of this fuse. It could be on the back panel or under the main top. Check out the pic. Part number..3196548 back.

What holds the spring assembly onto the bar assembly is just two small prongs. Use a pliers on the end that protrudes through the bar, squeezing the prongs together, and it should come out fairly easily.

SOURCE: How do I change the element on a Whirlpool Gold range?

If you have replaced the dual element with a new one, and have verified that you have the wiring installed correctly, it may be the infinite switch that controls the element that is bad. That would be the switch behind the control knob for the element in question.

SOURCE: Whirlpool electric range model # RF261PXSQ oven not heating

I'm afraid you may have a blown Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. The EOC controls all the functions of the oven. The surface elements are controlled by individual infinite switches behind each control knob.. That's why the surface elements all work, but the oven does not. A replacement EOC can be purchased on line at Just type in your COMPLETE model number and you will find it under the "Control Panel Parts" heading as item number 12. There are several listed, based upon the color you need (White, Biscuit, and Black). This is a very simple repair that any do-it-yourselfer can accomplish if you wish to perform this on your own. All you have to do is UNPLUG the appliance and remove the back panel of the console to access.

Before assuming the EOC is defective, however, inspect the board to see if it has a fuse on it. I do not have a wiring diagram to confirm. Some of these boards do have fuses and that's all that it may take to repair it. However, if the board shows signs of burned components, replace it. NOTE: Check for any loose connectors to the board as well.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have questions and/or require additional assistance.

Replacement of Whirlpool part 77001257 by 8203529 for Amana ARTC8600WW range...

Control switch for dual heating surface element in our Amana ARTC8600WW range (year 1999) failed and did not cycle power after the heating element was turned on. The range was in very good condition so we wanted to replace the switch. However, the original Amana part Y0315855 was not available. The company was taken over by Whirlpool and we found that Whirlpool part 77001257 should be used. But that part was not produced anymore either. On Best Buy web site we found information about an alternative 8203529 Whirlpool part. We order it, installed into the range, and got no action. From other web sites we quickly learned that the part is not the right replacement and that there is no replacement switch for our range at all. We hesitated to replace entire range so instead of returning the part to Best Buy we decided to investigate the differences between the original part and 8203529. Soon we began to believe that 8203529 should work. Specification as well as all connections were fine so we tried to adjust a little bit the tension of bimetallic element inside the switch. There is a tiny screw accessible for this purpose. The adjustment can be done be a 5/64 hex key which, for electrical safety, we insulated by a plastic tube. Immediately we got the expected action. We tested all settings before mechanical installation and all of them worked very well. The mechanical installation of the switch needed a makeshift bracket to distance the switch from the back of the panel wall in order to get the position of the switch knob properly leveled with the front wall of the panel. Just shortening the shaft of the switch was not sufficient. The bracket that comes with 8203529 was not suitable for our range. It was not difficult to make another bracket so we repaired the range without compromising its functionality or safety. That confirms that part 8203529 can be used in place of Whirlpool part 77001257.

Large electric burners not working on lowest "LO" setting

Unplug the range and remove the problem elements.
With a flashlight, look inside the element receptacle for burned or disfigured terminals.
If they are damaged they can be replaced.
If the element terminals are OK you have defective switches.
