Whirlpool Range burners don't stay on

I have a freestanding electric range that I purchased 1.5 years ago from Best Buy and rarely used. This is a sudden problem that began yesterday. All the burners come on , but stay on only 1 second, then go off for a minute then come on agan for a second.Whirpool wil not give any technical support at all.
I can' afford to have a repair man out. I do not know how to get at the control panel. Can you help?
I will never recommend Whirlpool.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR APPLIANCE before beginning any service procedure.
You may check your factory owner’s manual under the trouble shooting guide to see what is happening. Do you have a glass top or the top with metal burners?
If you have the kind with the metal burners the top in most cases are on a hinge and will lift up for service, you definitely have a short somewhere or a loose connection, check with Whirlpool’s customer service to see if they can send out a owner’s manual from the factory or check to see if it is still under a factory warranty and if it is there would be no charge. Or check with your local Whirlpool appliance dealer – sometimes they can be of some help. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local appliance dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Whirlpool WFG510S0AS2 range - stove burners work just fine, but both the oven and broiler does not stay lit. NOTE - this unit has been converted from natural gas to LP


when the lp conversion is done , it is normally just a jet size change that is done
however the air shroud has to also be adjusted to get a clean blue burn of the flame
The just jet change results in a slightly yellow flame which is incomplete burn of the gas and that creates carbon build up at the jet and burners causing partial blockage
I would suggest that you call in an accredited gas fitter to check the problem and if necessary , clean the jets and adjust the air shroud

Glass top range is pitted and scratched from an abrasive cleanser. Can it be replaced. It is a whirlpool freestanding range about 2 years old


Yes, your glass top assembly on your range can be replace. Here is one link where you can get the part, http://www.apdepot.com/Products/PartsLookup2/IPLLookupFrames.aspx?Brand=WHIRLPOOL&ModelNo=GR399LXHS1&ImgID=EdI2&ImgFile=WTKIKKLL

It is a relatively easy job to replace the main top since the burners are not attached to the top assembly itself. Remove 2 or 3 screws on the front of the top and you can easily lift the entire top off of the range and replace it with the new top.

Purchased a used gas oven yesterday. The top burners are working fine, but the oven is sooting up. We live in the country and use propane, but did not receive any additional orfice or instructions. In the...


We need a model number to be specific.
Check the gas regulator and make sure the pressure cap has been set for propane.Most of them are turned over to put more pressure inside the valve.
If so. Check the air shutter on the bake gas tube and adjust for the best color flame.
Also tighten the bake burner orifice with a 1/2 inch wrench.

Whirlpool 465 Surface Hot Indicator Light stays on all the time.


Most likely a faulty burner limiter switch. Not sure if they can be purchased separately from the burner element.

Broiler works, as do burners. The oven will not come on. Gas whirlpool range 2003 year. Model SF367LEKB


jdelvecchio5Does the igniter (glow bar) come on whenever the bake function is selected.?

If the glow bar does not come on the safety valve will not open - no bake burner. check the electrical harness first then Try changing the igniter (glow bar first) before changing the safety valve/regulator.

Inglis electric freestanding range model #IRE3230- Oven no longer working


If the oven and the electric panel no longer work, this is an electronic problem. The burners and the oven light will not be effected, nor will the fuses. The electronics card will need to be replaced by an appliance technician.
