How to change oven light


Which model Whirlpool range do you have? For most Whirlpool ranges that I have used , the oven light is covered by a screw-on glass cover. When the oven is cool, unplug the range, open the door and turn the cover counter-clockwise (to the left). Then remove the 40W bulb (again counter-clockwise rotation). Replace the bulb with another 40W appliance bulb. Then replace the cover by turning it clockwise until it is tight. Do not over-tighten either the bulb or the cover. Then plug in the power cord for the range. (Unplugging the unit makes sure that you will not get shocked if anything goes wrong. Sometimes the bulb may break in the socket - in that case, use pliers to unscrew the base of the bulb before replacing it with a new bulb.)

Whirlpool has the manuals for most of their appliances on their support site: https://www.whirlpool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OCManualsLiteratureSearchView?catalogId=10561&langId=-1&storeId=10211&krypto=5QgxQhneFliXuEuX564wSQ%3D%3D&ddkey=http:OCManualsLiteratureSearchView .

I hope this helps.

The digital panel is displaying -F1- and will not


Here is some wisdom for understanding F1 fault codes.

In some models, there are subcodes that make diagnosis even easier.

Here's a simple explanation of what's going on and how to troubleshoot:

The F1 code indicates that:


a. The electronic range control (ERC) is sensing heat in the oven when in a time-of-day (i.e., not cooking) mode.

b. The ERC is receiving information to run multiple heat functions simultaneously.


Although different components (depending upon the model) could generate the code, simple and straightforward testing using your ohm meter is all you gotta do to test for it.

1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor has to be within spec or it will cause the F1 code.
As an example of being out-of-spec, the ERC will generate an F1 fault code when the sensor shows 1650 ohms during a time-of-day mode.
This is equivalent to 350°F in the oven.
The resistance isn't high enough to generate an F2 code (runaway temp) or an F3 or F4 code (shorted/open sensor circuit).
The ERC monitors the sensor circuit after a heat cycle and expects the resistance to drop back to 1050-1100 ohms.
The fault code is generated when this doesn't happen. Checking the sensor circuit means also checking the harness,
harness connections and the sensor itself.

2. If the oven sensor circuit checks okay, then turn your inquisitive eyeballs to the touchpad.
If the range has a separate touchpad/keyboard, the keypad may have moisture that is shorting several circuits simultaneously.
If the F1 code is given immediately (instead of during or after a heat cycle),
remove the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the ERC after clearing the F1 code. If the F1 code does not return in five minutes,
then cast a suspicious gaze upon the touchpad/keyboard. Shorts may be caused by using an ammonia-based glass cleaner.
The touchpad surface will absorb ammonia-based cleaners that are sprayed directly on the glass surface. When heat is applied,
the surface material can break down causing shorts.
If you're gonna use ammonia-based cleaners on your control panel, then you should spray it on the rag and then wipe the touchpanel
-don't spray directly onto the surface of the touchpad.

3. On Amana ranges with a rotary temperature dial, be sure that the knob is in the OFF position when performing tests.

4. If these tests all check good, then replace the ERC.

My NN-S254 Microwave comes on intermittently, mostly dead


Try cleaning (pull the power cord plug first) the inner side of the sheet metal waveguide which may have a layer of grease that could short out the microwaves. This waveguide runs from the magnetron base over to the cooking cavity and usually can be removed by undoing some sheet metal screws along it's length. There is a fan-like device called a 'stirrer' that is located near the cavity opening under the wave guide and it should be cleaned also along with the cavity entry window. Hope this helps!

Stovetop lamp sockets very brittle and are disintegrating.


In effect (given the unit is wired correctly) without insulation on the socket, you have an exposed neutral wire in your oven -- this is certainly not as dangerous as an exposed hot wire, but does present risks. I recommend replacing the light sockets -- you'll sleep and cook a lot better.

How to get the glass front back on oven door of Whirlpool range


Ok. Heres what I was dealing with....Dissasembled. NOW (after you scrubbed everything to your liking try this.
1: With the door laying "oven" surface down on a flat surface. Gently place glass sheet/pane down squaring it up evenly as you can.
2: (Might sound strange) Grab the door handle and reposition it where it needs to go and slide the glass in the "ledges". Even everything up square as possible. Insert screws(2), but do NOT tighten all the way.
3: Now you have 2 (L & R) uprights. Insert "handle" end of uprights first, then align carefully the "tips" into the holes, and then snug the oven handle screws.
4: Carefully align the metal "base" channel/seat with the glass so the window/glass seats on the bases slots/shelves. Align all holes and insert screws (4 - 2 screws on both sides of base), finally align the center screw and tighten snug.
5: Replace door on Range Unit ande get cookin again!!

Hope this helps. I think its a poor design to let anything inside the door. Nice Range/Oven unit. Just a bad door design in my opinion.

Oh Yeah. The door hinges only took me 4 months to figure it has built in hinge locks. THEY are VERY convenient and once you know how they work. They are an AWSSOME invention for what they do!!

Oven light exploded and seems fused in socket


I was able to remove the base from the socket by inserting pliers and opening them so that they pressed against the inner sides of the base and then turning while exerting pressure.
