The control panel went totally black on my Whirlpool oven but the light in the oven still comes on. Can I replace the control panel? Is it very difficult to do?
Answer Hello Edie,
If the thermal cutout 9759243 has not opened, the issue will be the microcomputer 8302967. I'm sorry but this part has been discontinued by the manufacturer and no satisfactory substitutions have been provided. You will need to try to locate a company like corecentricsolutions.com and make sure they support this 8302967 board.
Lower over would not turn on. Then would work. Now both ovens don't work..no clock no lights
Answer Hello T John. Test for power coming to the control board. If there is power there, and the board does not work, you will need to order and replace the board on the unit. 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
