After my wife cleaned our upper oven the thermal fuse blew and the door wouldn't open. I replaced the fuse and now the lower oven works, the board has power (clock works, controls to upper work) but the top oven will not heat-up. Is there another fuse I should be looking for? I checked broil only and it wouldn't work either. Help!
I have the single oven of this style and I had to replace the thermocouple (part number 4450934) on the back of the oven three times (used the cleaning cycle three times). After using the cleaning cycle, the oven would not heat so each time I had to pull the oven out from the wall to access the back so I could change the part. Once a new part was put on the back of the oven, it worked fine. To pull the oven out, open the oven door and look down by the doors hinges. On each side you will see a screw that's holding the side molding on. Remove the screws and then the molding. That will give you access to the screws that hold the oven into the framing around the oven. Remove the screws and then you can pull the oven out to access the back to change the thermocouple. The oven is heavy so you may want some help to get out. It is not a one man job, maybe a one man and wife job. It is heavy. I hope this helps. Better late than never.

Kitchen aid is made by Whirlpool. There is a very good chance the then thermal fuse on the back of the oven has tripped. Whirlpools are very prone to this fuse tripping after a clean cycle. The noisy fan is just that a noisy fan it will probably need replacing. I have replace a couple of them over the years. When you pull the oven out to replace the thermal fuse replace the fan motor at the same tiome.
The thermal fuse is located on the back of the upper oven to get to it to replace it the oven would need to be removed from the cabinet and the back panel removed ( not fun but what must be done) here is a image of what the thermal fuse looks like.
I Have worked on quite a few of these in the last few weeks, i have found that about 50% of these problems are caused by the control board and the other 50% caused by the thermal fuse, you can check the fuse by removing the unit from the wall and checking for continuity at the thermal fuse. If the fuse is in fact ok then it is the board that is not sending the correct amount of power to the elements. So the Power Control Board is what will need to be replaced, you can purchase both of these parts at, http://www.reliableparts.com/ by using your model number.
Please rate my solution if it was helpful to you.
If you need more in depth information or pictures on how to remove and take this machine apart, feel free to ask.
Member Discussion on Whirlpool GMC305PRS01 Microwave Oven
Whirlpool Wall oven/microwave combo unit Door message Does anyone know where the 15 amp fuse is? I replaced the 20amp fuse and it worked for a minute or two and then I opened the door and I blew my circuit breaker. I reset my circuit breaker, replaced the 20 amp fuse and now all I get is the Door message. I also noticed that it fused the outside switch on the right side of the door so I had to open the switch up and un-fuse it. This is for a whirlpool GMC305PRS01 Wall Oven/microwave combo unit.
Also if anyone could tell me the correct position the wire is supposed to be hooked up on the switches? I had someone help me take the switch out and they unhooked the wires and now we aren't sure how they are supposed to be hooked up. My light on the microwave doesn't work either. Is it possible the bulb blew when the fuse blew?
First off this oven sucks. Now to fix the problem replace the Fuse assembly with #4451042 an $11.00 part. SHUT OFF THE POWER AT THE BRAKER PANEL FIRST. Then open the lower oven door and remove the two small screws that hold the side trim pieces, slide them up a bit to remove. At the top of the track remove two more small screws that hold the display panel in-place and lift the cover up and away from the oven. The fuse is inside of a clear plastic tube with a female spade connector at each end of it. replace the failed part and put things back the way that they came off. Next time don't by a Whirlpool.
big dib, the TC0, ( thermal cut out) probably has opened. This is non resetable. To get at it you have to pull the oven out to a point where you can get at the back. Then you have to remove the oven back panel and there is the TCO. Part number 4450249. You can verify this by ohming out the TC0, if it shows open (no continuity) it's bad. I have done a number of these and it takes two people to repair it safely. Kill the breaker when going in there. Catriver..post back.
tde, sounds like your thermal fuse (TC0) opened on the back side of the oven. If this opens, it will shut the oven down. This happens alot during self cleaning on built ins. Sometimes I have to re-route the tco to a different area to prevent this from happening. Your part number is 4451442. You will have to pull the oven out far enough to remove the back paneling and replace the fuse....Catriver..post back.
