Question about Whirlpool RBD245PD Electric Double Oven
After the cleaning cycle the unit has shut down. The display is dead as well as the oven light. The house breaker is not tripped.
I will check the electric to the unit this weekend.
Any suggestions ?
Thanks in advance
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.

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.
