Hi Chris,
It sounds as if the down arrow button key is stuck on the touch panel itself. Essentially the oven thinks you are constantly holding down the down arrow. Likely the button is shorted out which is the cause of the fault.

You can test this with an Ohm meter to check for continuity between the various pins on the ribbon cable that connects the touch panel to the ovens main control board. Depending on the model the tech sheet will sometimes include this test information, but other times it won't.

Basically you you connect your meter clips across the appropriate pins on the ribbon cable, press the button, and you should then have continuity. If that buttons ribbon cable combination shows continuity without having the button depressed - that particular key is shorted.

This is not the typical DIY test as it's fairly involved and the ribbon cables are extremely fragile so proceed with caution.
Of course, be sure to unplug the oven or shut off the breaker before attempting any repair.

Another thing you may try if you haven't already is leaving the breaker off for 15min and see if the problem persists. It's always a good first step, but it usually does not good in this particular scenario.

I hope this information helps some.

SOURCE: Intermittent tripping of circuit as oven just reaches temp

Sounds like the oven element is cracked and absorbing moisture when the oven cools down thus causing it to trip. Should buy a new element. there are hundreds of suppliers on the internet.

SOURCE: oven turns off if too hot

There is a temperature switch that shuts the power down if the temperature goes too high. This is to prevent a fire if your thermostat sticks on. Sometimes the switch will become weak and open the circuit at too low of a temperature. Replacing the switch should solve your problem.

If you need more assistance, post a comment with the model and s/n of your stove.

Thanks,

Tim

Gas oven heats up to proper temperature and then quits heating.


It sounds like you may have a Whirlpool gas range. If so it is more that likely the burner assembly itself. The electrode attached to the burner gets to where it will light during the preheat but then once it starts to cycle the spark module tries three times to light the burner and then shuts down. the burner assembly comes as one unit with the electrode attached.

Whirlpool GR396LXGQ oven comes on by itself & goes into clean cycle, code reads E2 -F3-


Whirlpool F3 faults relate to temperature problems in the oven. In the case of the error E2-F3, F3 is the general fault code and E2 is the specific error code. An E0-F3 error indicates that the oven's temperature sensor is open; E1-F3, that the temperature sensor is shorted; E2-F3, that the oven temperature has exceeded the maximum rated 575 degrees Fahrenheit in "Cook" mode; and E3-F3, that the oven temperature has exceeded the maximum rated 950 degrees Fahrenheit in the clean mode. Here is the probe to order.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

How do you recalibrate the oven temperature of a Whirlpool Accubake oven system


Hello,

To do that;
  1. Press BAKE

  2. Select a temperature of 550 or highest temp on some models its 500

  3. Quickly (within 5-seconds of setting 550) press and hold the BAKE button approximately 5-15 seconds until "00" or the previously entered temperature adjustment is displayed.

    Pressing longer could cause an F0, F1 or F7 error to be displayed.

  4. Press the UP/DOWN arrow button or turn the set knob to change the oven temperature in 5° increments to a maximum of +/- 35°

  5. Press the CLEAR or OFF button to return to normal operation.

I have a Whirlpool AKZ451 built in oven that is not reaching temperature. The oven element appears to be working, could this problem be the oven temp sensor?


yes, or the oven control itself,make sure also to closely inspect the element itself for any "HOT-SPOTS" where its getting a high resistance area and not passing all the current needed to heat the element

I cannot get the oven to come on after I used the self cleaning.


Things to check- The screw in fuses, they are usually the 30 amp fuses for the oven. Next is the clock assembly, often these clocks will have the words "push for manual" or "turn for manual", this will put the clock back into the normal operating mode rather than the automatic mode. Next, you may have to remove the power and check for any burnt wires. If all checks ok, you will have to test the selector switch and oven control.
 Oven temp problems: Temperature is too low possible trouble makers, blown oven fuse, bake element is out, burnt wire, oven probe clips, oven temp control, oven temp sensor.
Temperature is too high in the oven possible trouble makers, oven temp control, oven relay ( if used ), oven probe clips, oven temp sensor, shorted wire.
These oven probe clips often rust off and the oven temp probe hangs down, or touches the oven wall giving false temperature readings to the oven control.

had same problem, had computer checked out by profesisonal. Was ok. But it seems it is the control pad that clean cycle screws up. Try this (thanks to my wife and her experimental prowess). 1. turn oven on to custom broil. 2. push down temp button to 375. 3. press bake button. 4. You should now have up or down temp. We think you have to get past pre heat cycle in order for this to work. But work it does.
