Whirlpool oven won't bake

My oven (Whirlpool mod#GY396LXPB00) will not bake, I think it's a control panel problem but I'm not sure.  The bake button does nothing!  The custom broil and self clean cycle both function. The door locks when you activate the self clean and works properly. It started acting up the other day, my wife tried to bake something and couldn't adjust the temp., when you push the bake button it starts at 350 automatically and then you adjust from there, well it would not adjust, the up and down keys didn't funtion. So we used the oven at 350 and then it wouldn't shut off, the off button didn't function, I had to go open the breaker to shut the oven off. When I reset the breaker (allowed time to cool) I had my current problem, no bake funtion at all. Any input or advice would be appreciated! THANKS

secondary question:  do both the top and bottom elements function on a self cleaning cycle? I let it run for about 5-10 min and only my top element worked.

What is wrong with my Whirlpool Double Wall Oven-Mod RBD305PDB8? Control Panel is blank. Light & timer works. Nothing else. Breaker ok.

This is a symptom of a common control board failure. Although your board has been discontinued by Whirlpool, your original EOC electronic oven control can be rebuilt. See here for details:

The oven will not light on my Whirlpool gas oven Mod SF368LEPQ 2. The stove top burners still light.

Sounds like you need an bake element ignitor if the bake doesn't work but if the broil also doesn't work, it could be the electronic clock/timer control. the part number for the bake ignitor is 8054129 .Best off to call a reliable service company such as Sears.

Oven button doesn't work, we can get broil but not oven

Check underneath the bake panel and make sure the ignitor bar is glowing when you set it for bake.

Whirlpool oven issue

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.
