Question about Whirlpool Ovens
Late models rely on a circuit board with a small black relay to power the oven and broiler elements. These relays often fail shortly after the warranty period. If you're handy with electronics and a soldering gun you can replace the relay components with parts from Radio Shack. Otherwise buy the circuit board. Get the part number from the board and shop on-line for best prices. I have repaired once using optical semiconductor relays to pass low voltage to new definite purpose contactors rated 40Amps and normally used for HVAC systems. This required addition of a 24vac control voltage transformer. Isolation of the circuit by the optical semiconductor relays makes clear where the add-on circuit starts for future repairmen who examine the unit.
