Question about Whirlpool SF315 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

Open Question

Installed Whirlpool model EIF50RD045V new electric water heater. It only heats a very small amount of water and it is not super hot. We returned first one, but having the same problem with the second one that we installed. We have replaced the breaker also. Ometer says there is power to both elements. What can we check next?

    hot water only lasts 10 minutes at the most. Thought it was a bad element and put in a new one. Nothing changed, it is exactly that same as it was. Whirlpool electric water heater.

SOURCE: whirlpool electric range burner power light stays on but no heat

Hello givemeanidth.
Welcome to Fixya

You said, have a Whirlpool electric range (model rf363pxpt0) with standalone burners - the burner power indicator light stays lit whether the heat control knob is on or off, there is no heat coming from the burner on or off. You pulled the burner from the receptacle and one of the tabs broke off and stayed in the receptacle. You removed the tab and made sure no pieces remained in the receptacle then bought a replacement burner, no change. You put the replacement burner in the back burner of the same size and had heat within 10 seconds. You changed out the burner with the one that had been in the back of the range, no heat. As long as the breaker to the range is on the power light stays lit but no power to that one burner only.

What is the model number and the age of your range?

Waiting for your reply.

SOURCE: Whirpool electric oven replacing bake element

In addition to what aborcass stated, I just had to fix the same problem. Remeber to turn off the power before you do this. On my stove the element acess is behind the side panel (right side when facing the stove). You remove two screws on the back and one underneath at the bottom, (you need to pull out the drawer). Once screws are out, slide the side panel forward gently about an inch and it should just drop off.
You should see the wires for the element level with the bottom of the stove. The wires will guide you to the element. And you should see that the element is screwed in with two screws to the stove. This is the tricky bit, to remove the element follow the metal piece holding the element to the right until you see a third screw. Remove this screw and the whole thing will come out. Take off the wires, replace the element on the metal strip, slide the element and metal strip back into the stove (take care to ensure the left side of the metal strip slides into the proper position under the metal clasp. Re-attach the screw, plug the wires onto the element and turn the power back on. You should have heat.
Good luck.

Why does the control panel on my Whirlpool electric range get too hot to touch when oven is operating at 350 degrees?


heat transference and radiated heat at that temp is normal

the stove should have an air gap between unit and wall
not pushed up against the wall
and internally insulated

check to see if your whirlpool model oven ever had a safety recall 26301150-vpuqtjtdvoowntuyvcl35auo-4-0.jpg

How do I properly operate the Turbo Boil on my new Kenmore range?


Turboboil is a feature offered on a number of Kenmore electric ranges and cooktops. Without you model number it's hard to get into specifics - but turboboil is a special, high wattage heating element that delivers up to 3KW of energy to a specific heater on the cooktop. If I understand correctly, you would only use this setting when you wish to bring water to a boil in the shortest period of time possible - then change to a normal burner heat setting to maintain the temperature of the water in the pot.

Remember, an electric heat element is turned "full on" and "full off" as needed to maintain temperature (unlike a dimmer knob controls a light bulb). The turbo boil turns on a "double heater" to rapidly heat the water - after water reaches 212 degrees, it can not be heated any further (it turns into steam) so you should switch to a normal burner mode from that point forward.

No model or manufacture but F5E1 usually relates to door latch not operating properly the computer reads the position of the micro switches located with in the latch if the motor on the latch goes bad and does not return the latch to the correct position code will pop up power off the unit wait 15 seconds turn back on you should hear the latch motor it will lock then unlock if it doesn't move it will fault out hopes this helps.

My Gas stove takes over an hour to preheat sometimes.


Would be helpful to know brand and model. However, most gas ovens use a glowbar mechanism that regulates the amount of gas released into the oven. The glowbar also ignites the gas (and usually stays on all the time the oven is on). Often, the glowbar fails to heat up sufficiently and, as a result, doesn't allow the oven to release sufficient gas. If this happens, you may also smell small amounts of gas in the kitchen. The glowbar is hot enough to ignite the limited amount of gas being released into the oven. This is probably why the oven heats up but heats up very slowly. It's also possible that the heat being experienced in the oven is being generated from the glowbar itself without any gas being ignited. If this is the case however, it is unlikely that your oven to get very hot at all.

The way to test to see if they glowbar is failing is to test the amperage traveling to the glowbar when the oven is on. You can do this using a "clamp on meter" (purchased at any Home Depot or Lowes). Depending on the particular kind of glowbar you have, it should read above a certain amperage (in my case the reading was 2.7 amps and it should have been between 3.2 and 3.7 amps). I ordered a new glowbar from www.appliancepartspro.com and installed it myself (very easy). It fixed the problem. Here is a link that explains it pretty well (http://www.appliance411.com/faq/gas_range_ignition_systems.shtml#glow). Hope this helps.

Heating elements


I have a Whirlpool super capacity 465, the surface light for the burners comes on, the burners don't heat up, nor does the oven,(the light that says oven is on does not light up). I checked the main circuit breaker, that works. Are there any fuses in the range that would need to be replaced?

Thank-You,maddie

take your volt meter set it on 250 volt ac scale touch a frame of the stove with one lead and turn on the water at the sink and touch the sink with the other lead, you may need to add wire to one of the leads to get it to reach let the hot water run for several minuets before you touch the lead to the sink if you get a volt reading then you have an open water heater element in the water heater
the thermastat in the heater is calling for the element to come on power is applyed to the element but with it open the electricity is in the water
when you touch the range whitch is grounded and a sorce of water ie the heater YOU make the return path to ground when you touch the stove

Hot where it shouldn't be


I just bought a Whirlpool RF265LXTB electric range and have the exact same problem. The one we bought was the floor model, so we thought maybe it was just defective, so we returned it, went to a different store and bought the same model that was new in the box. Brought it home and it is doing the exact same thing.

Talked to Whirlpool and they say it will get warm on the front, but this thing gets HOT! They said they would send out an repairman, but after two different units, I can't see anything a repairman will be able to do to fix it. I wouldn't worry about it too much, but I do have a 3-year-old at home and don't want him to get burned. I think I am going to return it and try a different brand.
