    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.

Whirlpool oven dony heat up to the temperture


You likely have an oven element that is burned out. The elements can be replaced. Determine which element is burned out and put your hand near the element with the door open to see if if is the bottom or top element that is burned out. Then go on the web to an appliance part sales company such as appliance parts.com. Enter your Whirlpool model number and do a search for heating elements.
Order one. When it comes, turn off the power to your oven. (go to your house power panel and turn off the breakers that feed the oven.) Back to the oven. Open the oven door and look at where the element comes out of the oven wall. Undo the two screws, pull the element out through the two holes in the oven wall an inch or two. If you find insulation coming out with the wires, push the insulation back into the hole so you can just see the attaching electrical wires. Find attached to the old heating element a electrical wire connector with wire going back on of sight into the hole in the oven cabinet, one for each element end. Unplug the connector. You may need pliers to wiggle it while pulling off. Reverse the installation. Plug the connectors on to the ends of the new element. Reinstall the two screws that hold the element to the wall. Turn the power back on to your oven. Give it a try. It should work and is the most common reason why your oven would not get up to temperature. Likely one of your two elements is burned out.

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.

F9 error error code won't go away, even when turn oven off whirlpool RB260PXYB under counter oven checked air vent is OK, not clogged checked circuit board looks OK, relays look OK


This indicates a problem with the door latch switch. Try moving the latch around by hand to see if it will reset. If not this is likely the microswitch that control the mechanism. You will need to partially uninstall to acess. Once you acess it check it for continuity. It should have none when latch is open and some when closed. If you need diagrams or illustrations of your model enter your model # at www.appliancehelponline.com the microswitch is #34 in the diagram

Wont heat past 200 degres


When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

Whirlpool Gold Series double oven electric model GBD307-PDQ309


Usually this is a touchpad and control panel fault but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance.

With the model number of the oven we could look up the code and be more specific about the problem.

Element wires fell behind oven


I just had the same problem with our Electrolux wall oven. I don't expect you are still having problems 3 years later, but thought I would post for the benefit of anyone else with this issue.

Firstly, turn your power off. I then had to unscrew two screws on each side of the oven door which allowed the oven shell to come forward. You should then see the power cord which you can remove from the powerpoint. If your oven is hard-wired in, then I would definitely call an electrician.

Once I removed the oven, I placed it on the floor and unscrewed a few screws that held the top and back casing on. After removing the casing, you can see the wiring and you just need to push the fallen wire back through.

Before you put the casing back on, you could replace your element just in case the wire falls through again.
