Whirlpool Electric Range - Setting Timer Stove says door

Sometimes when we set the timer on the stove to start cooking later in the day, the oven doesn't turn on, but the stove is flashing the word "door".

    I am trying to figure out if there is a way to set a timer on this particular stove to have the oven turn on at a certain time of the day?

I had the same problem on my Whirlpool range, except it refused to cook at all and flashed the word "door." The problem was the wiring for the door interlock for the automatic cleaning oven, its wiring had melted and shorted to the chassis of the range.

If you do not care to use the automatic cleaning feature, the wiring will be removed and the oven will function, however the automatic clean will not work. If you want to use the automatic clean, new wiring can be ordered here, just make sure it is for your specific range model.

The wiring diagram for your range should be on the inside of the bottom drawer, it will tell you what color wires are for the automatic clean interlock. You will need to remove the panel on the back of the stove behind the cooktop and oven controls, make sure the power to the range is turned off before doing this.

It may be that the door interlock is faulty.

It will not turn on if it thinks the door is open. It will probably work fine if in manual mode - as this is not used.

If out of warranty, check the door interlock for anything broken off, and with a meter to ensure correct operation.

If this is ok, check cabling back to controller. This board may need repair/ replacement if faulty.

The clock on the stove was flashing and now I can't get time set and the oven buttons don't work to put on broiler or oven. I don't know how this happened or how to correct it


hello,
You can set the timer on a range slow cooker to automatically switch to a warming setting when you estimate foods will finish cooking. The programmable features allow you to leave food stewing at home while you are out of the house, freeing up your day. Set the timer on a range slow cooker to let the kitchen appliance do all the work, and come home to a fully cooked meal.
Fill the insert of the range slow cooker with food and cover it with the lid. At least a quarter of the insert should be filled with liquid to keep the environment moist during long cooking times.
Press the "On/Off" button on the left side of the electronic control panel in the front of the appliance. This will turn on the slow cooker to the low heat "Warm" setting.
Press the "Cook Time" button on the right side of the electronic control panel to add hours to the timer which will show a total time in hours with a red digital display. Continue to press the button until the display indicates the desired cook time in one-hour increments up to 10 hours. The cooker will automatically adjust the temperature setting based on the amount of time you programmed on the timer. Cooking times of six hours or less automatically start on "High" heat and times of seven hours or more will start on "Low" heat. A small indicator light will come on below the word to tell you the cooking temperature.

Hi; We have a Whirlpool Gold range and stove - roughly two years old. The stove works but the oven and all functions ie clock set, timer do not work at all, not even a beep or anything appears on the creen...


Try holding down the off button for 5 seconds and if this does not work the start button for 5 seconds. Unplug for 5 minutes first. Then try holding the button and then set the clock.

Gas oven door locked after autocleaning-- will not open


set the selfclean and after you hear it lock down then cancel the operation and wait to give it time to unlock ,,, may take up to 10 minutes ,,, if it dont unlock you will need to get into the back of it and run the door latch back by hand
Take the back cover off the the stove. UNPLUG THE STOVE
On the left rear facing the back of the range youll see that the timer motor had stopped.may sure you unplug the input(230 volt power) leading to the stove, then unpluggand insulate the wiring to the timer motor and the microswitch on top of it ( 4 wires). Then take the long steel wire off of it and unlatch the oven door.
this probably had something to do with the timer motor on the self cleaning cycle and that it was stuck
Do NOT use the self cleaning function unless you fix the timer motor. Replace it or clean it.
Hope this helps

Door will not unlock after self clean.


It's probably the timer motor which is stuck. unplug the range!! I recently had the same problem with my whirlpool (hereinafter known as **** inc.) range. Self cleaned the oven and then the door wouldn't open. Googled up similar problems and generally found out that ****inc. had this problem on both gas and electric ranges and it costs an arm and a leg for a new board plus labor. Found out how to manually open door with coat hanger but of course still had problem with same error messages; also the oven, clock, etc wouldn't function. Took the cover off the back of the stove. UNPLUG THE STOVE On the left rear facing the back of the range he found the timer motor had stopped.He unplugged input(230 volt power) leading to the stove, then unplugged and insulated the wiring to the timer motor and the microswitch on top of it ( 4 wires). Then he took the long steel wire off of it and unlatched the oven door. Told me that this probably had something to do with the timer motor on the self cleaning cycle and that it was stuck Said this whole thing could probably be fixed with a bit of WD40. Said probably nothing wrong with board but it sure must be a moneymaker for **** inc. The service techs probably clean the timer motor, say they changed the $300 board, and go on their way. Plugged stove back up and voila! Everything worked except self cleaning function. Hope this helps someone. caution!!!! Do NOT use the self cleaning function unless you fix the timer motor. Replace it or clean it.

Loud pop means electrical fault occured. There may be and internal fuse in the oven that blew. Probably blown oven element but certainly open circuit to timer. Remove back, check for supply to oven timer. If supply is there, the timer can be bypassed to allow for oven element to work as clock replacements are very expensive.

to jenna 12 Does your stove have a stop and start timer? When you set your clock you may have inadvertantly moved the stop or start time on that timer. Check them, if they have knobs for setting the stop and start time, make sure the pointer is pointing to the current time and that the knob is popped out and not stuck in. when you have it right both the stop and the start knob should be out, not pushed in. They will pop out when you turn them to the current time.

These timers allow you to start something cookin at a time delayed several hours. this means they will not allow the oven to come on until it hits that time that you may have set in error.

If your stove has a digital stop and start timer check each one so that both show the current time, then your oven should light.
