Question about Whirlpool GBD277PD Electric Double Oven

Whirlpool GMC275PDB1 microwave oven combo

Last week during a pre-heat which was less than a minute, the oven suddenly had sparkle inside and some flame was happening inside. We were about to call the fire department, not knowing what to do. Then, it stopped. By that time, our house smoke alarm went off and we checked the circuit breaker inside the house had swtitched to off position for the oven. The oven came with our new house which is about 9 years old now. I know may be it is time to change the oven but to have failure like this. Isn't this is a safety issue? I am afraid to use the oven again. I called the whirlpool customer services and they told me this is how the wire normally burn out inisde the oven! I am shocked this can actually pass UL regulation. Any comments on what whirlpool told me? The technician is coming today and check it out. What should I ask him? Please advice.

When the oven is heating up, a light inside the oven flashes very brightly. Not sure what that means or if it is unsafe.

when the oven is cold open it and ensure the light inside is screwed in fully. It is probably making poor contact when it is cold.
If that does not fix it, ignore it. If the power to the element was shorting it would trip the earthleakage or your main power switch.

Whirlpool Wall oven/microwave combo unit Door message
Does anyone know where the 15 amp fuse is? I replaced the 20amp fuse and it worked for a minute or two and then I opened the door and I blew my circuit breaker. I reset my circuit breaker, replaced the 20 amp fuse and now all I get is the Door message. I also noticed that it fused the outside switch on the right side of the door so I had to open the switch up and un-fuse it. This is for a whirlpool GMC305PRS01 Wall Oven/microwave combo unit.

Also if anyone could tell me the correct position the wire is supposed to be hooked up on the switches? I had someone help me take the switch out and they unhooked the wires and now we aren't sure how they are supposed to be hooked up. My light on the microwave doesn't work either. Is it possible the bulb blew when the fuse blew?

Our oven's heating elements will not come on althought the display seems to work correctly.

Wekiwa, your TCO, (thermal cutout) probably opened during the high temps in self clean. You will have to remove the back panel and replace it. It should be just under the vent back there. Part number 4450934. You can ohm it out first to make sure, it will show open (no continuity) if bad. This is an easy job, won't take you that long. Kill power to the range before going back there. In doing a little more research on your model, I see there was a service flash where they recomend moving the TCO over to one side so the cleaning cycle doesn't affect the TCO. This may be covered by Whirlpool. You might want to call them and inquire. back.
