Bake setting very slow to heat takes a couple hours just to get 250 and does not get higher than that.
Broil appears to be working ok.
Answer Hello Schneur. It sounds like either the bake element is bad, or the wiring coming to the element is bad or the control. You can test the element. It should read closed for continuity. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Our Whirlpool double oven works fine, however we can't trun it off once it's done...have to trun it off from the breaker panel? The control panel was replaced 2.5 years ago. Could it be a thermol fuse or the thermostats?
Answer Jack, It's not likely a thermal fuse or thermostat, where it a fuse, the elements would not heat or the control would be "dead" / no display or program. Evidently the keypad assembly has failed and will need to be repalced 8300437 ( the biscuit colored panel has been substituted to a black panel, by the manufacturer).
It seems that every time I clean the lower oven the thermostate (9759242) opens. I just ordered another one form you. Do you know the heat setting on this thermostat and is there another one that I can use that may have a slightly higher setting.
Unfortunately there is not a higher temp thermal fuse for the unit. The unit opens at 221 degrees plus or minus 7.2. Per the tech sheet the thermal that you are installing is the incorrect thermal fuse and you would need part number 8304452. Check the one you receive and as long as it is 221 then it should work. If lower then get correct fuse.
I have a glass top but stop working do not warm up? Just the clock and oven light work?
Answer Hello Christian. You need to check and see if the breaker or the terminal block on the unit is bad and you only have 120 volts coming to the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

Kitchenaid superba double oven. After self cleaning mode only top oven works. Control panel appears to be ok. I can set the temp for the lower unit, it just does not heat up. Would this still be a thermal fuse for the lower unit or a thermostat, or something different.
There is a thermal fuse located on the back of the unit and if it is open it will cause lower oven to not work. There should be one for the upper and lower. Check for continuity of the thermal fuse and if there is no continuity then you would want to replace it. If it does show continuity then you would want to check voltage from the control board from L1 to Lower bake when set for bake in lower oven. If no voltage then the control is bad and will need to be replaced.
