SOURCE: Whirpool double oven shutdown during self cleaning operation and now is completely dead and the top oven door will not open.

Too bad someone didn't answer this sooner. Caused be poor air circulation in the unit. There is indeed a thermal fuse used in this unit. This problem has been around for a while and no real solution has been found. The closest "fix" is to remove the fuse, turn it around and only hook it down with the screw that faces the panel. The other screw hole is then bent to a 45 degree upward slant. This give the fuse a little breathing room.

SOURCE: My Kenmore Continuous Cleaning oven is older - it

If you are tripping a 50 A breaker, you have major problems. First check the breaker, to make sure it is in reality, tripping at 50 amps. As they get older they can suffer heat damage, and will trip at lower currents. How old is it? Does it visibly look like bad (burnt, etc) Is it loose on the mounting buss? Burnt smell? If everything checks out then go to the oven and look for loose connections. There will be heat where there is a 50 amp current draw. If the oven is suspect, I would seriously consider dumping it as soon as possible. This is serious fire safety hazard. Again, loose connections. Check all of them, both AC+ legs, Neutral, and ground.

My oven lost power during the cleaning cycle it just shut down .The breaker did not trip the door is locked and the oven is dead what can I do.


Most likely one or more of the thermal fuses inside tripped due to excessive temperature in the control area. This could be due to a cooling fan not running or a door not sealing well. You will have to pull the oven out of the wall to test/replace these parts. If the oven is screwed in, you will have to use something like a thin screwdriver or a coat hanger to manually move the door latch over far enough to get the door open & get to the screws.

More than likely you have tripped the house circuit breaker or fuse. If you know where the house fuse box or circuit breaker panel is check to see if either one side of the two 240 fuses is blown or one of the two tied together circuit breakers is tripped. If it is a breaker then shut off both breakers completely and then snap them both on completely or they won't reset. It is rare that an oven has a fuse internally. There can be thermal fuses but they will trip when the temperature is out of range.

Door locked after self clean cycle.


Ensure you let the oven cool down completely after a clean cycle before trying to open the door.

If the door still won't open after a couple hours of cooling down, then go to the main power panel in your house and shut off the breaker to the oven. Leave it off for 5 minutes, then switch it back on again.

Then try the oven door again.

Good luck.

The display panel is blank, and none of the buttons work. It had been working earlier in the day, but is no longer functioning. Is there a breaker button?


Hi, Check to see if there are any lights working, such as the ones that come on when you open the oven doors. If there is absolutely no power going to the unit, check the household circuit breaker panel that services the oven.
An oven works at 240 volts so the circuit breaker for it will be a double breaker, similar to the ones
electric water heaters or air conditioning units. It may have tripped. If it is tripped, then
the lever connecting the two sides of the breaker will not line up with other breaker switches in the
breaker panel. If that is the case, shut down the breaker completely and then after about 10 seconds,
turn it back on. If it will not stay on, there is an electrical problem in the circuit going to the oven or the oven itself. Hope this helps. Let me know if your need more help.
Best,
Mark

The clock works but the oven does not heat up


Hello George, welcome to fixya.

The symptoms you describe are a common occurrence when the hi-limit has tripped. This typically occur's following a self clean cycle. The display will indicate the oven is indeed "on" but it will not heat do to the circuit being interrupted by the hi-limit ( which is what it was designed to do ).

Fortunately if it is tripped, they are the manual reset type and are accessible behind the black grill/vent just above the door and just below the control panel next to the lock latch assembly. **Turn off the 40amp breaker at your service panel or sub-panel in the home before attempting any service...safety first**

With the power off, you should be able to remove the grill and push the red button in the center of the thermostat and that should fix your problem...if indeed the hi-limit is tripped you`ll know immediately because you`ll feel it click as you push it down. It will look like the image below...52bc5ab.jpg

Let me know if I can assist you further. If this solves your problem please rate the solution accordingly, if not let me know and I`ll try to guide you through other possible scenario`s.

Thanks for visiting "fixya" and good luck.

Oven locked up


What breaker did you shut off? House breaker? Or the ovens internal breaker? My drop in has a set of push button breakers under the oven behind a fold down door. The fold down door is in place of a regular ovens pull out drawer. Check in there if you have one. The light are more than likely a warning somethings wrong. If this was just installed check to make sure it was grounded properly. Also check to make sure the AMP rating of the stove and the one in the house breaker box match up. The house one can be higher but not the other way around. Hope that helps.

Cleaned then Dead


nextwave, looks like you have a safety thermostat (TCO) on the back of the oven. Should have a red and red/white stripe wire going to it. If this opens it will cut the power to the display, part number is 316003606. The hardest part of this gig is pulling the oven out to change the t-stat out. Catriver.
