Instruction below.

  • Unplug your oven. Insert the size 15 Security Torx bit into your multi-bit screwdriver and remove the screws from the back panel. Take off the back panel.
  • 2 Locate the fuse. It should be near where the electrical cord comes into the oven. The fuse is a small white bar with metal caps on either end. Carefully remove the fuse. Avoid touching the transformer or other parts inside the oven.
  • 3 Purchase a new fuse. Most whirlpool ovens use an 18 amp ceramic fuse. Consult your owner's manual to find out what kind of fuse is used, or take the old fuse into the store to find the exact match.
  • 4 Replace the fuse. Put the cover back on and see if your oven works. If it does, replace the screws. If it does not, try a different fuse. If the oven still does not turn on, you may have to have it replaced of professionally repaired.

    Where is the thermal fuse located and how do I replace it on Whirlpool double oven GBD307PRS03? Thanks


    The thermal fuse is located on the back of the upper oven to get to it to replace it the oven would need to be removed from the cabinet and the back panel removed ( not fun but what must be done) here is a image of what the thermal fuse looks like.

    Well, it won't come on.

    1st check you breaker. If the oven is getting power then it's most likely to be one or more of the thermal fuses. There is one thermal fuse that feeds the control board. It's located in the wiring harness and accessible from the front. The other fuses are chassis mounted on the back or top so the oven has to come out of the wall.

    Whirlpool Wall Oven not working

    It is likely the Thermal Cut-Off (TCO) fuse, which for many Whirlpool ovens is located on the back of the unit. Turn the circuit breaker for the oven OFF first. You'll need to remove the trim on the left and right side of the oven (2 screws) and then remove the screws holding the oven in the wall. You can locate it easy enough by looking for the thermal fuse on any of the major appliance part websites. The test is simple enough if you have an Ohm meter, as it will be an open circuit if it is blown. There is only one fuse (normally) so if it is blown neither the bake or broil element will work. There should be a Tech Sheet located behind the control panel which will help, but if you don't feel comfortable doing this call a service tech.
