Question about Whirlpool RBS305PD Electric Single Oven
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.
