Oven sparking problem

I used the broiler on my oven the other day, and when I turned on a burner to boil some water, it threw the circuit breaker. I ran downstairs and flipped the breaker while my sister manned the oven. When I flipped the breaker, the oven sparked right inside the control panel near the knob and blew the circuit breaker. I can't turn the circuit breaker for the oven on without it sparking and blowing the breaker for the whole house. Any suggestions?

Whirlpool WFG361LVS2 oven. Broiler and burners ignite but oven will not. I can hear gas and the igniter sparks but will never light the oven.

get someone to hold a long gas match near the main burner when you try the oven . If it lights then I would suspect the igniter. even tho you can hear it snapping .

Last week when my wife turned on the oven a flash and popping noise happened and the circuit breaker popped. I ordered a new control board part number WB27T10229 and installed it. When I turn the circuit...

The broiler is a different element. Sounds like your main (bottom) element is out. Turn off breaker and remove. To test, use an ohm meter and ohm out the element. If yuor meter reads 0 or OL (open load) your element needs to be replaced.

Whirpool Range suddenly tripping the circuit breaker

It could be one of the elements is shorting out causing the breaker to trip. Try using one burner at a time to see which one causes the short.

Oven and broiler will not heat elements have continuity when oven was turned on heard a pop after that the problem started

do you have voltage? you have to have 240 volts if you only have 120 this might happen check your breaker. does your bake element work? if neither bake or broil work always check the breaker first and let me know

Oven and broiler won't come on

It's most likely the igniters in the oven. They cost about 40$ apiece and our oven has two. They are fairly easy to replace.

1) Turn off the electricity to the stove, either with a switch or your circuit breaker.
2) Remove grills, side support grills and oven base. They all just slide out.
3) Remove door to avoid breaking it. It slides off.
4) Remove old igniters, they are attached with two screws. Remove 2 wires from plugs. It might be necessary to lower the front base panel to get to the plugs - the panel is attached by two screws on the side of the panel.
5) Install new igniters, put the door and grills on and you're good to go.

The first time, it might take an hour to get used to your stove, but its really about 15 minutes of work.

Stove/oven gets hot then shuts off

Shut the breaker off! These are the exact symptoms that a tenant of ours reported for their range. I went to check the range and found that one of the power wires on the terminal block in the back of the range was burning itself up. It had actually started a small wire fire. You need to pull the range out of it's hole and unplug it. Remove the panel in the back above where the cable goes into the range. Examine the power wires and terminal block carefully, because I bet you'll find one of the wires is burning up and needs to be repaired. Please write back and let know what you find.
