Whirpool rbd275yPDT11 no power after auto clean

We ran through the entire auto clean cycle and now no power-door is unlocked and oven is clean. breaker and power fine--How do I get to the thermal fuse(s) to check them. Is there somewhere to get pictures of where to look (what they look like) or instructions. How ridiculous is this for an oven to shut off after auto clean----first time we've used it

    I tried the auto clean for the first time and both of the elements won't heat up. Oven is still new and was used less that 20 times.

I printed down the installation sheets. I could not locate the thermal fuse on the control panel (which was the easiest to get to without removing the oven) so I went ahead and removed the oven. The upper and lower thermal fuses were fine. I put in back into the wall and my husband found the control panel thermal fuse--it was in-line--so we tested it and it was bad. I could not find anyone online that carried this fuse-or even knew the name of it. After much hard work we finally got the info off it--Microtemp KLBALY G4A00 TE 110C. Nowhere could I find a replacement except for something I am hoping is comparable online at Goodman (?). So while I am waiting for the fuse, I went to Radio Shack who had a thermal inline fuse rated at 128C for coffee pots and hair dryers. Also got some fully insulated crimp on connectors. Hooked it up and it works--havent cooked yet--to do cookies soon to test it. So far it seems like everything is running ok. I WILL NOT EVER USE THE AUTO CLEAN again. I dont get why the company has let it lie without helping unknowing consumers

We have a Whirlpool dual-oven (over and under) that has the control panel on the top above the upper over. We had the same problem as described, fuse failed during auto clean. I pulled the top cover to get to the power connection and circuit boards. I found a couple of hot-spots on the control board, but confirmed the thermal fuse was the real problem with my meter.

When the fuse fails, it works like a standard switch. It’s either "on" allowing electricity to pass through it, or "off" in its failed state. The only difference is it triggers when the environment around it exceeds its rated temperature. The one described above “Microtemp KLBALY G4A00 TE 110C “ looks to be designed to fail at 110 degrees Celsius or 230 degrees Fahrenheit.

The following picture is taken from above, on the left side, facing forward:

All things considered, as long as the Radio Shack replacements specifications closely match the originals:

- Electrical load: 10 amps @ 250VAC (15 amps @ 120VAC, 5 amps @ 24VDC)
- Fail temperature 110 C / 230 F

You SHOULD be ok. But remember, when fuses fail, they usually do for a reason. Just replacing the bad one and the lights come back on doesn’t constitute a “repair”. If you choose to ignore common sense and burn your house down around you, it’s probably a good thing since the gene pool needs a good flushing.

Cannot unlock oven door


  • Here it is!

    Look for a manual lever to unlock the oven. If there is one, it will probably swing back and forth horizontally, just below the upper edge of the oven door.

  • Swing the locking lever, if one is present, all the way to the left. This should unlock the oven. If there is no manual lever to unlock the oven, it may be unlocked using push-button controls.

  • Check to see if the oven is in a self-cleaning cycle, or has just completed a self-cleaning cycle. If so, the door will unlock automatically once the oven has finished the cleaning cycle and cooled completely, which may take several hours. You cannot unlock the oven before it has cooled.


  • Unlock the "Clean/Off" button. Depending on the brand and model of your oven, the button may display both of these designations or just one. If your oven door is locked, but the oven is not warm and is not in a cleaning cycle, unlock it by pressing and holding the "Clean/Off" button.

    Cleaning cycle finished, oven cool but still locked


    Since the clean cycle was interrupted by turning the breaker off it may need to be restarted. Start the clean cycle like you normally would, then after it starts and runs for a couple of minutes, push cancel and see if it unlocks. If not the lock would need to be manually moved by putting a flat thin angled tool or stiff cardboard carefully between the door and oven cavity on the top of the door, slowly move this to the left, you will feel resistance when you get to the latch in the center. If you hit it right it will unlock.

    Oven door will not unlock


    Hello,, Some times this will happen after a self clean cycle if the timer did not finish the entire clean. Try to set the clock to start the self clean again then simply end the self clean. This should unlock the door. If the door remains locked. You may check the oven for an error code, or the door latch itself may need to be replaced. One other possible would be to turn off the power to the oven and try to let the oven control reset. leave the power off for about 15 minutes then turn the power back on. That will sometime work aswell. Good luck and feel free to call me if you need more help.
