Question about Whirlpool RBS305PD Electric Single Oven
The oven is going thru the preheat cycle but never heats up. I had the elements checked and they are still good. Could it be the thermostat?
Gallow, Whirlpool put out a service flash on this model concerning the TCO located in the back. Regarding oven wont heat up, control panel normal. It has to do with the TCO (thermostat fuse) located just under the vent in back and it's tripping. Since you had the elements checked out, Im suspecting this TCO. Usually when these thermostats open, they are non resetable and you don't have any heat at all. The best thing to do is check this TCO with a meter. If it shows open, thats probably the culprit. They recommend moving the new TCO over to the left about 6 inches so it is not directly under the vent. You are going to need help pulling the built in out just far enough to get at the TCO. The part number for it is 4450934. The service flash is 22-647. Catriver...post back.
