Question about Whirlpool RBS305PD Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

Won't heat after self-clean

Read some other inputs that say its likely a thermal fuse and that you need to pull the oven out of the wall to fix it. Are there some other possible simple checks to make before doing that (element connections maybe)? And if this is a regular occurence, shouldn't they fix the design

You're right... design should probably be updated. It does sound like the thermal switch as the cleaning cycle heats the oven to nearly 800 degrees which taxes the switch. If for some reason the switch went bad, only solution is to fix the switch.

You could verify the element is in place correctly, but i doubt that's your problem. If you were o read the terminals to the element with an AC voltmeter and you get 0 volts then it's definately your thermal switch, however if you read the terminals and you get 220V then the element is NG.

WARNING: 220V is nothing to play with. If you're not experienced with this kind of measurement, call on a professional repair person as electrocution a high price to pay to fix an oven.

Oven keypad is completely black but inside oven lights work. does keypad have a separate fuse?


Yes. Many of these have a display thermal fuse that is part of the wiring harness that connects to the board... it should have continuity. WP4451042. Almost all models have what is called the "oven shut-down thermal fuse" which is on the back of the machine ( you have to pull it out of the wall and remove the back panel) and looks like this KitchenAid Range Stove Oven Thermal Fuse WP9759242

After cleaning, the oven read out says that it is


maybe a thermal fuse on the back of the oven blew out. some of these wall ovens had a retrofit kit to help prevent this from repeatedly happening when the self cleaning was used.

After doing a self clean, the panel now flashes locked


thermal protector has caused lockout. happens w/ self clean a lot. it's a small thermostat device most likely on the rear of the oven. oven need to be pulled from wall to check/replace. you may have to open door w/a coat hanger if it's locked to get the door open to allow access to screws to allow removal of oven from wall if it's a built in. unplug it before doing anything. fuse is under back cover size of a bottle cap, 2 wires, should be "closed" normally. replace or spray w/freon to "reset" it.

Oven will not heat since auto clean


We had the same problem, only we discovered it on Christmas Day

The problem is the thermal fuse/thermal cut off, the new part # is 9759243-old part#4451442 you have to cut the power to the oven, remove the oven from the wall, remove the back panel, take off the old thermal unit & install a new one. We paid $41.06 for the unit.

If it were not for this sight we would have gotten an electrician & paid a minimum of 175.00 which would have included the person coming out, ascertaining the problem, getting the part coming back etc.

We are back in the cooking business!

Hope this helps, and thank you all for your input.

Whirlpool rbd275pdb double wall oven died during self clean


The first time we used our Whirlpool oven the same thing happened - no power and yet the circuit breaker was not blown. I called Whirlpool, and they sent out a technician to check it out as it was still under warranty. He said the temperature was off (too hot) by 20F - he adjusted. He also replaced the blower. What he did not tell me was that the thermal fuse had blown, and he replaced it - this was the REAL cause for the failure. I got the impression that he did not want to let me in on the secret. He did not note on the paperwork that he replaced the thermal fuse. Last week I decided to run the oven through the self-cleaning cycle (the oven is now 8-1/2 yrs old) - I don't believe that we cleaned the oven but a couple of times since the first time that it was "repaired." I used the default 3-1/2 hour setting. Everything appeared to be fine - the oven went through the cleaning cycle with no apparent problems. The display now read "cool down" - I went to bed thinking everything was okay. I got up the next morning only to find out that the power was out. I called Whirlpool and demanded that they repair the unit again as they clearly never fixed it correctly in the first place. They offered me 15% off on a new oven - WHOOPEE! I asked to speak with the supervisor - he did not budge either. I was upset, and I told him that I would NEVER purchase a Whirlpool appliance again! I decided to tear into the oven to see if I could detect anything wrong. I pulled out the front panel - everything looked okay. I then noticed the "thermal fuse" - I did not know what it was called at the time, but it looked familiar. I checked voltage on either side of the fuse and found the voltage to be zero on the downstream side of the fuse. I pulled it out and read the information on the device: Microtemp 110C. I called a local appliance repair shop - they told me that it would cost $50 to purchase a new fuse! I told them that seemed very high. I ended up stopping at Radio Shack. They have thermal fuses in various temperature and voltage ranges. I got a 144C 10A fuse and carefully soldered the connectors to it and replaced the protective plastic sleeve. I actually bypassed the thermal fuse in order to use the oven before I found the replacement fuse. While it is a good idea to have a protection device for the slim chance that an oven may malfunction by overheating, it is not a necessity for the functionality of the oven. Hopefully, the thermal fuse will not fail during my next attempt to self-clean the oven. I do have a concern about the 10 amp rating, but I'm sure that it will work fine.
