Our oven's heating elements will not come on althought the display seems to work correctly.

We used the self-cleaning feature of our oven last week, and now find that the broiler and lower heating elements won't activate. The oven goes through the pre-heat stage and all that just fine, according to the display. But it never gets hot. Any ideas?

    I have a whirlpool RBS245PRBOO built in oven. Used the self cleaning feature for the first time and it worked fine. After that however, neither the broiler nor the bottom element work. Display works and fan but not the elements. Checked circuit breaker and connections and are all ok.

    I have a Whirlpool single oven that would not heat up even though the display seemed to work properly after I had cleaned the oven for the first time. The repairman said the thermal fuse had burned out. At a cost of $245 I had to oven pulled out and the small fuse replaced. He said that he has seen this problem in many Whirlpool ovens he has worked on, some were older models than mine (which is only about 1 1/2 years old),. He recommended that I not use the oven cleaning feature because the fuse would overheat and blow again. It seems clear to me that this is not a new problem and is being ignored by management. I think I should be reimbursed for my repair bill since I can no longer automatically clean my oven and this is clearly an ongoing problem.

    I have a Whirlpool oven, sparingly used. Ran the Self-clean for the first time and now it won't operate on Bake/Broil etc. It seems like from previous posts that the thermal fuse has shorted. Can I replace it myself? Is there a repair manual someone can direct me to, or walk me through instructions?Thx!

    If it is a known problem, does Whirpool fix it or do I need to get a repairman at my expense. It is a built-in. I don't want to even try getting to the back panel and I don't know what a TCO (Thermal Cut Out) looks like.

Wekiwa, your TCO, (thermal cutout) probably opened during the high temps in self clean. You will have to remove the back panel and replace it. It should be just under the vent back there. Part number 4450934. You can ohm it out first to make sure, it will show open (no continuity) if bad. This is an easy job, won't take you that long. Kill power to the range before going back there. In doing a little more research on your model, I see there was a service flash where they recomend moving the TCO over to one side so the cleaning cycle doesn't affect the TCO. This may be covered by Whirlpool. You might want to call them and inquire. Catriver..post back.

Gaggenau oven not self cleaning.

The self cleaning features only serves to keep manufacturers in steady sales of parts. Quite simply the oven can only take those temperatures a few times until they break. The heat burns out elements, damages fans, door locks and worst of all damages control boards which are not far enough from the heat source. It sounds like your control board is fried. Try turning it of at the breaker for 15 minutes by way of a reset.

Never use the self cleaning feature as stated here

No heat on convection or self clean

If you have been using the self clean feature, you have probably burned out or damaged the connections to the fan and the convection fan element or thermistor. NEVER EVER use the self clean feature.

I have GE model#JKP45WOP2WG double oven wall unit. Lower oven isn't heating up properly. Bottom of lower oven doesn't seem as hot as the top of the oven... replaced oven sensor, not

Most double wall ovens are technically two separate oven boxes. The lower oven box has its bake, boil elements, high limit thermostat and ofcourse its own oven sensor. If the lower oven box boil is working good and less heat on bake feature may suggest that the bake element is burned out and only getting preheated with boil element. Just a suggestion here

Whirlpool Oven will not heat

Hello there:Usually,
when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component. When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly. bullet.jpg If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. bullet.jpg Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details. bullet.jpg Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. bullet.jpg If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

KitchenAidKEBS107: NO HEAT after power failure during self clean

Thermostat on the back needs replacement. The problem is caused by overheating the oven. Improper installation or inadequate blower. Depending on the model, the oven might need a new blower in addition to the thermostat. Try calling KitchenAid to find out if the oven needs that blower and get the part number for the thermostat, they might have replaced it with the one with higher temperature rating.

I have a Whirlpool electric build in oven with self-cleaning feature. It is about 8 years old and we just used the self-cleaning feature for the first time last week. The oven was not that dirty, but...

Your thermal fuse or TOD mounted to the back of the oven went out during the self clean,it shuts off the power to the elements.
 The oven must be removed from the wall to change this.

I have an electric Maytag stove/oven but don't know how to use the self cleaning feature. What do I do?

Never ever use the self cleaning feature. It is there to make your life a little easier, but it also damages elements, door locks and control boards. The heat is just too aggressive. We see it here VERY often. It is a great way for the appliance makers to earn income in spares. Use the traditional method, spray walls, base and racks in the oven with Easy Off - No Odor Foam, and put a large roasting pan of boiling water in the middle shelf (this prevents the spray drying off). Leave overnight, and wash off in the morning.
