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.

I can't get my clock set on my GE stove model # JB645DT1BB It said to hold for 3 seconds to change the time but it doesn't change. HELP Please


To Set the Clock
The clock must be set to the correct time
of day for the automatic oven timing functions
to work properly,The time of day cannot be
changed during a delayed cooking or a delayed
self-cleaning cycle,
1. Touch the Clock pad twice.
For models without a Clock pad:
Hold the + and - pads for 3 seconds.

2. Touch the + or - pads.
If the + or - pads are not touched within one
minute after Step 1, the display reverts to the
original setting. If this happens, repeat Step 1
and reenter the time of day.

3. Touch the Start/On pad until the time of
day shows in the display. This enters the
time and starts the clock.
To check the time of day when the display is
showing other information, simply touch the
Clock pad. The time of day shows until another
pad is touched.

What is the single fuse in top panel of electric oven/range for?


Hello there and welcome to fixya
Normally the single fuse that you have found is for the electronics like the clock and the various other basic funtions o the stove ect ect if this fuse has blown out it will limit the stove or the cook top to be able to do such things like setting the timer or turning on the ovens light and it may also effect the troubleshooting program that is built into the stove ok like error codes and simple things like this
Hope this is very helpful for you '
Best regards Mike

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.

FRigidare new stove installation


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.
