We have an older (about 10 yrs) double electric oven. Both ovens stopped working at the same time. The electric control panel for the upper oven is on and it looks like it turns on but the elements don't heat. On the lower oven that has a manual dial, when it's turned on, the oven/heat light does not go on but the lower element heats up a little, the broil doesn't heat up at all. Someone said that it's the electronic control board so I obtained a reconditioned one that doesn't work anyhow - but it's confusing because the lower oven element will heat up when the top panel is unplugged so - how is it that both ovens are out? Thanks anyone!!
We have an old Whirlpool oven, and the lower heating element is no longer heating above 250 degrees. Is this heating element something that can be pulled out -- like the stove burners can be pulled out of electrical sockets -- or is it attached to wires, requiring an electrician to replace the unit?

Whirlpool ovens panel buzzing related questions and answers. ... the control panel on my Whirlpool electric double oven Model is RBD305PDS14? ... No power on control panel During self clean cycle the power to the panel went out. ... panel the instrument panel on an oven won't change time because of a storm problem.
Ours have also stopped working (both top and bottom). Bought in 2003 so only 8 yrs old. Getting technician in to fix. Will post solution. Also whenever oven is heated up the display panel fades and is not visible (has been doing this for a couple of years)
1. Bake or Broil element faulty. The oven cycles these on and off to reach and maintain the average setpoint temperature. If the elements heat poperly during the time they are ON, then they are OK (may be able to see them glow).
2. The temperature sensor probe is faulty. This can cause the oven to think it's hotter than it actually is.
3. The above two causes can be easily diagnosed by a technician with an ohm-meter. If they are both OK, then the problem is in the controller itself. If this is the case you may want to have us repair the controller. We see this fault quite often.
Hope this helps you out. Regards, Bruce www.fixyourboard.com
I just had a model 976-4CX put in...I have no manual...I'm trying to find one. I thought I had a problem with the element, dial or thermostat. The bottom worked, but the top stopped working. There are 2 timers with dials next to the clock labeled Start and Stop, and Push for Manual. Come to find out my problem was solved by adjusting the Start and Stop dials and/or pushing in for manual!?!
If I had a manual I'd know how these timers worked.
