Whirlpool oven stopped working (Whirlpool accubake oven - GR450LXH)

My girlfriend recently tried to clean the heating element on our oven (Whirlpool accubake oven - GR450LXH) and when she turned it on, the bottom heating element glowed like the sun and fell apart. The upper element worked fine. I recently replaced the lower element, and now neither element works. It sparked a little bit during the installation. Anyone know what needs to be replaced?

SOURCE: The lower oven ignighter does not glow

I had the same problem and swapped the oven igniter with the broiler igniter and the oven now works. This proved the oven igniter itself was the fault, now I have to replace the broiler igniter with a new one(which is much easier to get to).

FYI: An igniter may glow red and still not allow the oven to work. The igniter has to draw a certain amount of electrical current for the main gas valve to open.

Most likely a bad element. Turn off the power to the oven. Remove the racks.
Use a phillips screwdriver or 1/4 inch nut driver to remove the mounting screws at the back of the oven cavity to remove the element. Carefully pull the element out and remove the wires. Do not let the wires fall back into the holes.

Use a volt meter set for continuity. Touch one meter lead to one terminal on the element. Touch the other meter lead to the other terminal. If you get NO reading the element is bad.

A new element will correct your problem.

If the element reads as good you have a wiring problem or a bad control.

First, you need to check the 2 circuit breakers. One goes to the control board and the other one goes to the heating elements. If the heating elements still do not work, you would need to check them for continuity.

Whirlpool accubake RBS275PDB6 will not heat up to preset temp


I am assuming the lower element is not working well. Go ahead and replace it. But first , go turn your breaker off to the oven and then back on. Often times it can be tripped but not showing due to the other poles not being tripped. The lower element is the cheaper one also.

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.
