I have a Whirlpool self-cleaning double oven unit. Yesterday the entire unit shut off completely while I was using both top and bottom ovens. I switched the breaker off and on, but that did not resolve the issue. When I open the oven door the lights don't come on either. I was thinking I needed a new control board, but might it be some sort of fuse that I need to check first?
Answer Laurie, Yes, there is a thermal fuse 4451042 located behind the control panel, if the fuse fails, power to the control board will be eliminated and nothing will work. There will be a couple of other things to check to keep the problem from arising. Check and make sure the oven door(s) open and close properly, the doors should not pass 90 dgrs. when opened fully, and check the cooling fan for proper running and air circulation.
Hello, I am in need of installation help with this part, please provide me with detailed instructions on how to remove old panel and install the new part.
Answer Hello Behzad,
Turn the power off to the unit and verify there is no power to it. Open the door and remove the screw near the bottom that retains the trim. Pull the trim out about an inch and slide it straight down. This will expose two screws, (one on each side of the oven), on the outside edge of the bottom of the control panel. Now you pull the bottom of the control panel out about an inch and slip it up and off. Be aware that there is still a ribbon cable connecting the two parts. Assembly is in the reverse order.
