Question about Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

I have a whirlpool AKP509/WH/02 electric oven that is not heating up properly. the element at the top of the oven is glowing red and giving off heat but the bottom shelf of the oven remains cold enough to touch with bare skin whilst the oven is switched on. food that should take 15-20 minutes to cook is taking well over an hour to do. is it likely to be a lower element problem (which i wasn't sure if this model has or not) or is the electronic clock possibly at fault?

    I too am having the same problem. I recently moved into a new house and the previous owner left no instructions. The cooker seems to heat up when its first switched on but the tempreture falls to warm even through it is turned up to the maximum tempreture. Can anyone help?

SOURCE: Preheat taking long time

If your oven has the hidden bake element then it is probably working properly. A standard oven with an exposed bake element will usually take about 12-15 minutes to preheat. The hidden element models take a little longer but they usually heat a little more evenly.
Post back if you have any more questions.

You have a problem with your oven temp. sensor. Remove it and check it at room temp. It should meter out at 1 to 1.1K ohms. If it doesn't replace it.

SOURCE: my electric glass top stove won't heat up?

They have a thermal overload resistor in the burner itself and they have a propensity to burn out, or it could be the infinite switch. You will have to check resistance across the leads that correspond to each pinout. You can find this out by backtracing the wire to each terminal on the block. Replacement of either part is the only option, there are no safe alternatives to repair them. Hope this helps. BTW, you can go here for parts.

How to bypass thermal fuse block to see if oven will heat up


Hello Andy;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

I am sorry for the above response. Some advisors on this site are not knowledgeable in the field and answer questions regardless of professionalism and rudeness just to build up points on this site.

Anyway, I am here to help you.

First you have no thermal fuse and you power is 220 and 240V.

There are only three components that control your oven:

1.0 The heating element - Inspect the heating element (Metal bar) inside your oven. Is there a crack in the element. Inspect the two connectors of the heating element against the back wall for corrosion. When you turn the oven on do you see sparking? Then you have a bad heating element.

2.) Ok, the heating element is good.
3.0) Turn on your broiler. Does it glow bright red? Then your thermocouple is good.
4.) Then your problem is in your oven control board. Sears will cost about $256.00.

I just purchase a remanufactured oven control board over the internet for my customer for $30.00. Easy repair.

Send me your model number. Either on the top of your oven door or on the face of your oven after you open the door.

Should the lower oven heating element heat all the way around? The heating element in my oven only heats and glows red on the front and two sides, The rear part of the element never glows red.


This is probably normal. the element has a fine wire inside the tube that you see and depending on where it starts in the tube it will start glowing from there.

Whirlpool electric oven won't heat just barely


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

This indicates a open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you wan to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then test the door switch. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have a whirlpool range. During preheating the


sounds like you may have a bad bake element. try to see if the unit will get hot when set to broil. if it does then try the bake again. if you get no red hot heat from the bake element then you may need to replace it.
when an element is working properly it will heat to a red hot glow.

WHY WON'T MY OVEN HEAT UP?


Most modern gas ovens and many broilers use a "glow-bar" style of igniter that glows red-hot to ignite the gas. If the igniter doesn't reach the proper temperature, the gas valve won't open. You may need to replace the igniter.
