I dismantled my RV stove to clean it and I took the thermostat apart at the oven control valve. It consisted of two springs, two lid type disks and a washer with slots in it, Then it was held together by a threaded cylinder. What I would like to know is the assembled sequence of above described parts, I do not create a dangerous situation. Also the two gas lines that run from the burner to the gas valve was damaged during original assembly. One had kink where it circles around at the bottom in the back of the stove and the other line had a screw from a clamp on the back of the stove pinched and cut into, which could have been a dangerous situation also. I guess your quality control missed those two items. Please advise. Thank You. Bruce C.
ANSWER Hello Bruce,
The thermostat W10125661 is not considered to be a serviceable part. Once it is dis-assembled, the manufacturer says it has to be replaced to prevent creating an unsafe situation. The gas lines that were damaged should be replaced also. I guess Whirlpools' quality control should be as thorough as we are in our diagnosis.
