Question about Whirlpool Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a whirlpool super capacity 465 electric range. I was not living in the house for about 8 months, and when I just moved back in the range doesn't work. The indicator light comes on for the surface coils when I turn one on but the element doesn't heat up. Since it is an older range I went to lowes and bought coils, pigtails and pans to replaced the old ones. Still no working range. I checked the outlet for power and the results-red wire, 125 volts black wire-16 volts Both toether was 16 volts. I was told that the breaker maybe bad. The breaker is a GTE/Sylvania 50/50 2 pole I replaced it with a zinsco model rc38-50 which identical to the old one. still no working range. any suggestions?

If the voltage at the plug is still only 125 volts on the black and 16 volts on the red. There is still a problem with the power. And has nothing to do with the stove. You should have 240 volts when you measure from red to black. You can check the power at the breaker to make sure that you have 240 volts on the new breaker. If you have the right voltage there, then you either have a bad connection in the range plug or a broken wire somewhere between the breaker panel and the plug in.

I have a whirlpool 465 super capacity stove. the top burners seem to have a mind of their own. 1 in the back doesnt come on at all and the other go to high heat even if i set them on low settings


No solution, just that you are not alone. We have had our Whirlpool super capacity 465 for 10 years, and about a year ago that large burner started to randomly go to high, even though the control is set to simmer. Ruined a few meals by not being right there watching.

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
