Can I install this part myself?
Answer Hello Vinnie. You can install this part yourself. You will need to disconnect the power going to the unit, and remove the screws holding the element in place. Once the screws are removed, you will pull out the element and disconnect the wires. Reinstall in reverse order. Hope this helps.

We ran the self clean cycle, but when we tried to run a broil or bake cycle the next day, there was no heat. The oven panel indicates when each cycle is on and the temp is shown as "LO". I see that you answered for Model # KEBC107KSSO that the relays on the control board have failed. Is that the same answer also for Model Number KEBC177KSS0? Or can I replace the Element? Help! Bob
Answer Bob, It's not likely to be either the element or the control. It's more likely to be the thermal fuse 9759242 on the back of the oven. If the oven gets too hot, the fuse opens and removes the L2 power leg (120 VAC) from the elements and there will be no heat. This occurs quite a bit on Whirlpool built products. When you replace the fuse, you also need to make sure the oven doors close and seal properly, and that the cooling fan operates properly and moves the air in the control panel area.
I think my heating element is bad on the top oven. Only the outside loop on the coil makes heat. The inside stays cool and the oven take a long time to heat up - twice as long as the bottom oven. Is this a bad heating element?
Answer Bill, You'll need to remove the broil element and check the resistance of the inner element (45 to 55 ohms resistance) with a multi meter. If the element checks proper W10207400, the issue would be in the wiring or the control board relay 4453661 not supplying power to the inner element. We're sending you some additional information with the relay cycle charts so you can check and verify the issue. Thanks
