My Repair & Advice

After determining that the breaker hadn't tripped. I knew it was the thermal overload fuse that had blown because it had done the same thing several years ago. This time instead of calling a service tech, I decided to do the repair myself. I checked with a couple of local appliance repair shops for the part and no one had it in stock. I started my internet search on Amazon and found Appliance Parts Pro. I had a different part and part number because the service tech from the first repair had replaced the fuse with one that was not a Whirlpool part. AppliancePartsPros.com had the part but when checked against their compatible chart it was not compatible. I searched by the oven Model No. and the correct Whirlpool part was listed and pictured and compatible and in stock. I ordered the part late Wednesday night and the part arrived at my door by noon on Friday. Since it was Good Friday, a holiday for most people, I didn't really expect to get the part until after Easter. Installing it was easy. Pull the oven out to the wall, remove the old part, attach the new part with two small screws and attach the two wire leads. Push oven back in wall. We were able to use the oven for our Easter Sunday family dinner.
