First, be sure that you are using the correct lamps, they must be aplliance bulbs, rated for use in ovens. Secodly, some oven light fixtures are equipped with a lens, and if this is missing the lamp can be exposed to very hot conditions, such as during auto-clean cycles, If you are not sure if there should be a lens, take the nameplate info to the manufacturers website, and look up a parts diagram. The nameplate can usually be found on the frame of the drawer below the oven door. Replacement lenses are relatively inexpensive, and the parts department at any appliance showroom can help you.
Also, opening and closing the oven door roughly, can break the element, especially when hot or cooling down. I hope that this is helpful, Rob

Can oven cleaning products be used in a Whirlpool "Steam" Clean oven. My oven did not come clean, baked on stuff did not come clean.


Yes they can be used, but rinse them off and run the oven at 450F to after to burn off any residue. 10 minutes of oven time should do.

I have a whirlpool accubake duo, super capacity 465 and when I try to bake something the oven wont stay on...how do I get the oven to stay on


What do you mean that it wont stay on? Does it turn off and on during cooking? Does it just go off and wont come back on? The oven thermostat regulates the heat in the oven and the oven element and the oven indicator light will turn off and on during cooking. If it stayed on constantly on full oven element power everything would burn.

Whirlpool oven accubake system


I have a whirlpool accubake wall oven. Half-way through baking a pie ,unknown to me, the oven went to the self-clean mode , the door locked and the pie started to burn. I tried to turn the oven off but it would not cut off. I immediately ran to the house's main power and turned off the oven breaker. I waited for a short time to let the oven cool enough to open the door and get the burned pie out, then went back to turn my breaker back on and the oven (even though in the off mode) started heating again with the bottom unit turning red again. I had to then go back and pull the power. We tried this several times trying to push the off button but the oven will not go off until we throw the breaker. Help please!

Oven not cooking evenly, outside is getting brown but inside is undercooked


Sounds like the igniter is not operating at full capacity. What happens is that the oven does not light when it should. Instead, the oven is cooling down much too far so when the oven does light it has too heat more rapidly. This causes the outside to brown/burn long before it should.

Whirlpool RBS305PDQ11. After self-clean, oven won't heat up.


This seems to be a common problem with these ovens. The oven got too hot and the tco (Thermo cut off)tripped. This will have to be replaced. It is located behind the control board.
