Question about Whirlpool RF367 Electric Kitchen Range

RF367LXKQ burner light always on

I had a stove top that burned out the element and connector for it. I replaced the heating element and connector. Everything is working now, but I still get a constant red light indicating that the stove element is turned on. I'm thinking this is an error indication from the previous problem but don't know how to clear it. Any ideas?

Thanks a bunch in advance.

    Thanks for the tip. I kinda figured with the arc that obviously happened at the element the switch may have been blown as well. But when everything worked (except the light) I got hopeful that it was still good!

How do I replace the receptacle for the heating elements on the stove top.


Typically the light is a function of the selector so as long the position of the knob is to the on position it will be on. in order for the burners to work you'll have to replace the connectors, so full current can go through them. also the self cleaning feature refers to the oven meaning you can lock it, turn it to clean and it will get so hot that the build up on the inside will get flaky and then you can clean it once it cools off. I've never seen one that work that well, but it has nothing to do with the glass there is cleaners that you can "rub" kind of like waxing a car and if you have build up on the glass or burned food you can scrape it with a razor laying flat on the glass and scrape the cleaner around will eventually it will peel off.

I'm wondering if my Jenn-Air Model JER8885QCS needs a new probe or not. It's a...


As oven probes age, they can sometimes generate error codes on kitchen ranges and render them inoperative. The error code varies between models, but can be found with the technical documentation that comes with your range. Most manufacturers place a tech sheet somewhere along the back of the range, or inside the console for qualified technicians to use as a troubleshooting aid. Refer to this if an “F” code is displayed on your operator console. The probe may also exhibit other symptoms without generating an error code. You could have undesired heating results (too hot or too cold), or slow preheat times.

The location of the oven probe can vary on different models as well. It will be mounted on the back or side of the oven wall (usually in the upper right or upper left corner). If you suspect you have a bad oven probe, a resistance check can be performed to determine if the probe is good. To accomplish this, unplug the range and remove the back panel. There are still dangerous voltages present even when the oven is not on. There will be two heat insulated wires coming from the oven probe behind the oven. Disconnect the wires and perform a resistance reading across both wires at room temperature. If the probe is good, it should read around 1100-1200 ohms*. If the reading is too low (shorted) or too high (open), replace it. However, I would take a good look at the interconnecting wiring FIRST. If you have a connector plug on the oven probe, often the plug pins will oxidize and not make good contact. This gives false readings and can lead to erroneous error codes. Some manufacturers recommend cutting the connector plug off completely and hardwiring the leads together by using heat resistant ceramic wire lugs. This provides a more permanent and reliable connection. The lugs can be purchased at most hardware stores. A new oven probe roughly costs about $35 - $45 and can be found on line at several appliance parts websites. Higher end model prices may be more.

To replace the oven probe, simply remove the mounting screw from inside the oven cavity, disconnect the wires and pull the probe out. Insert the new probe by feeding the wires through the opening in the back of the oven first and out the back through the insulation (a long screwdriver can assist you in making a visible hole through the heat insulation to feed the wires easier). Once you have the wires through the back of the oven, reinsert the mounting screw and connect the wires leads together. Reinstall back panel.

*NOTE: Keep in mind resistance readings will be higher if the probe is hot. Make sure you check the temperature at room temperature.

I hope this information is helpful..

Why does the terminal block keep melting on my kenmore range left front burner.


Brother Jeff, this happens all the time because the connections are not perfect, causing arcing at the point around the connection. This arcing makes for excessive heat and melts the block. I replaced the connections on my Mothers stove top with crimped connectors and it lasted a lot longer. They didn't burn out any more, she just needs a new stove. So your best bet is to use crimp on connectors instead of the OEM block that's melting from a loos connection.

My stove poped and went off. I tripped the breaker and now the oven will not heat. Neither the top or bottom unit.


First I would look at the heating element in the oven and make sure it is all in one piece. there are usually one on the bottom and one on top. sometimes they will burn apart and short out to stove. if they look ok then do a quick check, I would turn off all knob on the stove top and oven. then try to reset the breaker. hopefully it resets ok. then turn on one at a time and see which burner or oven element has a short. when you find the bad burner or stove element it will trip the breaker again.
hope this helps

The stove is 26 years old. Has been working very well. Now the two heating elements on the left side of the stove and oven are not working. The pilot lights come on. Fuses in good shape and 220 volts...


check the contact points on the rear of the element they burn off after years of use, if the contacts are still good, Look at the element itself for any white marks on the element, if you see any , the element itself has probably burned out and need replacing , to get to the contacts,, depending on the oven, remove the back they should be right in sight , if you do need to replace the fittings on the wire ends, be sure and get heat range connectors

Hello a couple of our stove tops rings intermittently work and now one has stopped working altogether. The light comes on but the ring does not heat up. Any advice? Thanks so much


Hi unplug the stove and remove the two screws that hold the top down, holding the burners, check for burned wires going to and from all burners I think you may have wires that are shorted out , or the element itself is burn out , you can check this with a ome meter, by putting each wire on the ends of the element , I hope you know how to use a meter if not write back and I will walk you though it , Just look around very carful

The oven element will not affect the top burners, Unless it tripped the breaker at the panel when the element burned it two. Is there power to the stove? The top burners have their own power and control separate.
