    Have you looked inside the operator console? Many manufacturers keep a tech sheet, complete with wiring diagram inside the console when they are assembled.

You will have 3 or possibly 4 wires coming out of the oven Red and Black go to the hot leads in the junction box.Usually red & black but could be 2 black. White goes to white Bare/green go to the white if no Bare/Green available. This is for a wall oven. If the stove is free standing and you want to attach a cord. Just buy the cord that matches the outlet in your house. Make sure it is a range cord and not a dryer cord. They are very similar. If a 3 conductor cord (most common) outer two terminals are the hot ones. There is a wire or metal strap between the frame of the range and the center (neutral )terminal . On a 3 conductor cord leave this connected. On a 4 conductor cord remove this wire and connect it to the green/bare wire in the cord. There may be a vacant terminal on the block for this purpose. If not use a wire nut.

With the power disconnected, check all connections.
You may want to purchase an electrical contact cleaner.
This will ensure that all contacts are clean and that you don't have a bad or faulty connection. Often with the older ovens with the heat, it drys out the wire and you may have a broken wire at the connection.

I have a electric whirlpool self cleaning oven, after the cleaning process the door is still locked. It's beeping and error message E1 F5

Assuming the door is still locked after cooling, then either the door switch is bad or the wiring from the control panel to the door switch has a problem. First disconnect the power from the oven. Then check the wiring and connectors (from the control to the switch and back). If those are fine, you need to replace the door switch. After replacing the switch or fixing any bad wiring/connections, reconnect the oven to power. Press and hold any key on the panel for at least one minute to clear the error. You should see F2 on the LCD panel. Press Cancel to clear the error then check to see if any new error (or the old one) message occurs. (Usually a new error message will come up within a minute.)

Which model Whirlpool oven do you have? If you add a comment with the model number, I may be able to provide a parts list and diagram of the unit.

I hope this helps.

I have an old whirlpool electric range model number WGE33300, not self cleaning oven for many years. The four top electric burners are fine, but today both oven heating elements will not operate and the...

I was looking at your wiring diagram. A red wire goes to a limit and then enters into a terminal box and feeds L-2 power to both element. I would be looking real close at that limit. It has a orange wire on one side and a red wire o the other terminal and most of these here limits look a lot like this one.
I am gonna try and link ya to the diagram but I doubt WP will allow it. Mighty funny both ements in the oven have took a dump. I suspect that limit. Next I will try and find a part number for that limit and maybe we can see that puppy. Hang on. Looks like it could be NUMBER 8
now let see how much that puppy costs and hopefully what she looks like. Hang on. $40 bucks
Dang that seems to me like a lot. Notice they don't post a pic either. Know why? Because they know yall can get generic ones by looking at the stamped metal temp numbers on the part. A klixon is a klixon. This ques is makin me curious to bust open my parts catalog and see what come up with.

Whirlpool Electric Range - Setting Timer Stove says door

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.
