Question about Whirlpool RF462LXSB Electric Range
Hi, This model uses 240 volts for the heat in both the oven and top burners. It uses 120 volts for the lights and clock. The problem is that one 'leg' of you power is gone. The most likely place to look first is the circuit breaker or fuse box, this may sound strange but 1/2 of the breaker can trip. Find the breaker for the range and turn it completely off and back on. Test to see if it works. If that fails to work, you will need to test at the wall outlet for 240 volts, Not just each side of the outlet to ground but both hot sides to each other. You will need a volt meter capable of reading 250 volts AC. If full 240 volts is present there the problem is inside the back panel, unplug the range. Follow the cord to where it connects. There will be a black a white and a red wire at this terminal block. The red wire is the one that would be bad. Do not attempt this repair beyond the circuit breaker unless you are comfortable around high voltage.
