Question about Whirlpool RBS305PVS Stainless Steel Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

We just bought a house and tried using the oven (model RBS305PVS) for the first time and it doesnt get hot at all. It looks as though it is working but no heat comes from the oven at all. It worked during the inspection and it looks like the self cleaning function was used by the previous owners right before we closed and now it doesn't work. Any ideas?

First try resetting the circuit breaker it has a 2 pole double throw breaker and it is possible for one side to have tripped. To reset correctly Push the breaker switch all the way to the off position till it won't go back any farther then push to the on position and try the stove again If it does not work let me know and I will tell you what to do next. If you just bought the house you do have the option to have it repaired at no cost to you if you call the Realtor who you bought it from. Be waiting to here from you.

Oven takes too long to start or not at all


is this electric or gas? if it is gas and a newer model it has an ignitor that heats up that will then ignite the gas burner, the ignitor is bad or you may need to inspect and clean the gas ports on the burner as they can get cloged up over time, try the inspection and cleaning first. If it doesnt appear to be cloged then turn on the oven and watch the ignitor, if it doesnt heat up to be white hot then it is bad or going bad and should be replaced. if it is electric check to see if the heating element is working by turning the oven on and watch for it to glow red hot, if it doesnt then it will need to be replaced.

Amica oven door gets so hot that my child has burnt hes hands and needed medical attention


Amica is a European brand, I recommend you contact the company headquarters or a competant local repair shop. Any oven left at a very high temperature for a long period of time gets pretty hot, though, and an eleven month old baby has pretty tender skin.

Hi, I have an Electrolux EOU 6330 electric grill/oven. In have only used it twice as i have just moved in to the house and after the second use during the cool down period it started rapidly clicking and...


Try turning the power off to the oven at the meter box and leaving it off for an hour or so. This will allow it to fully reset. When you power up again, reset the clock time and set to manual cooking , hopefully , all will work again.

I have the same problem with my RBS305PVS... i self cleaned the oven and now it wont heat..... i tried the 2 pole breaker idea.. no go.. i worked yesterday.. cleaned it.. it no workie now please send me...


A common problem when using self-clean functions.
It destroys parts.
Remove the rear panel from the oven and replace the thermal fuse that blew because of too high temperature.

I have a Stoves double oven and after a power cut the clock has stopped working and the main oven is not working either. the clock is completely off. the small top oven is still working though. what can...


The clock controls the ovens. In other words, directly you set any time on the clock, a contact operates within it to provide power to the ovens. (Normally the grill remains operational). You may need a new clock/timer. Before you do so, try switching the power off at the main isolating switch and leaving it off for a few mins, then switching it back on, to try to get the clock to operate. You may need to do this a few times.
Normally Stoves stick a label identifying the model on the left hand edge of the lower oven. You see this when you lower the main oven door. it will probably start with a 05 and be 9 digits long. With this number you can identify the oven and obtain parts.

We cleaned the fan oven and now it doesnt work


Hi.

I have come accross this problem many times. ----always when it has been cleaned. Somehow the cleaner coats the element and creates a hot spot. This will cause it to trip the electric as soon a s its switched on or after the element has been on for a while!!

You may be able to remove the back cover ( the one you see when you open the oven door) and gain access to the element. Try and clean it with a damp cloth. If this fails then the only solution is a new element. You havent mentioned make so i cant price one up for you.
