I have Whirlpool range, burners work; oven does not. Could it be the switch? Thank you.
The switch could be the issue with the unit but you will want to check the thermal cutoff first. If the thermal cutoff 9757158 does not have continuity then it is faulty and would need to be replaced. If the thermal fuse checks ok then the switch 9762215 would be the issue.
PURCHASED THIS STOVE APR 2010 USED THE OVEN 4 TIMES SINCE, NOW NOTHING. THE TOP 4 ELEMENTS ARE FINE. 23 OHMS ACROSS THE OVEN ELEMENT. ZERO VOLTS ACROSS THE OVEN ELEMENT WHEN SET ON ANY DEGREES, 350, ETC. NO OVEN LIGHT EITHER. VERY UPSETTING. OF COURSE THE 1 YEAR WARRANTY HAS EXPIRED. IN READING SEVERAL BLOGS ON THE INTERNET, THIS IS A EXTREMELY COMMON MANUFACTURE DEFECT. SO SAD, PAID $304 AT LOWES AND A NEW SWITCH, YOU LIST AT $115. LOWES PERSONELL BASICALLY ASKED "DID YOU GET THE EXTENDED WARANTEE? YOU SHOULD HAVE WITH A WIRLPOOL PRODUCT. VERY UPSETTING. EVERY STOVE I EVER OWNED LASTED 25-30 YEARS. DO YOU BELIEVE IT IS THE SWITCH ON THE STOVE THAT TURNS ON THE OVEN? THANK YOU.
Answer Lanny, There's a couple of quick easy checks to make, at the oven control switch. These will be live 120 VAC checks at the switch wires. First unplug the power cord or turn power off to the range. Remove the red wire from the P2 -6 terminal on the switch(so we don't get a false reading). Reapply power to the range and check for 120 VAC from terminal(s) P2-1 P2-5 Black wires to chassis ground, if you have voltage your TCO and wiring are OK. Check for 120 VAC from the terminal on the end of the red wire removed from P2-6 to chassis ground, if you have the voltage your L2 power supply to the range and control are OK, If you have the proper voltage readings, the issue will be in the control switch. Thanks and Good Luck
oven will not turn on,oven heating light dose not come on also,cooktop all burners work good,just the oven dose not work.could this promblem be the oven switch?? or could this be something else. thanks
Answer Mike, It could very well be a problem in the oven control, but you need to make sure you have 240 VAC and no loose or damaged wires to the cntrol. If you have a multimeter check at connector P2 pin 1 (black wire) and P2 pin 6 (red wire), you should have 240 VAC across the two wires in the connector. Thanks and Good Luck
If this part is making a clicking noise, and oven wont heat up, is it bad or is something else causing it to make the noise?
Answer Hello. Test for 240 volts coming to the oven. Also check the elements and make sure they are good. It could be a bad thermostat. Hope this helps.
