Default Whirlpool Oven RBS305PRS00 not heating
Model Number: RBS305PRS00   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I ran the self-clean function on my oven this weekend with no problems at all. I have used the self-clean function in the past with no issues, as well. Tonight in an effort to bake a casserole for a work Thanksgiving function tomorrow at work, I turned on my sparkling clean oven. I heard the fan kick on to circulate the air and thought nothing else of it. And ten minutes later when I was ready to put my casserole in my pre-heated oven, I noticed that the oven was not even remotely hot. In fact, I could touch the heating element with no concern.

Please tell me this is an easy fix (and cheap)! We are hosting Thanksgiving for 18 people and it's just a week away.

The oven is a Whirlpool brand, model RBS305PRS00. It is 4.5 years old. In efforts to determine the problem and maybe trick it into working, I have also noticed that the broiler element is also not working.

Here are your parts
Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL RBS305PRS00 30" Built - in Electric Oven Self Clean | AppliancePartsPros.com

This should come in handy.
https://secured.whirlpool.com/Servic...LE/8178007.pdf

First check the power.
Try flipping the breaker off/on slowly a couple times, sometimes you can loose half the line without actually tripping the breaker.
If this does nothing, check the voltage at the plug
L1 to L2 should be 240 volts
L1 to Neutral and L2 to Neutral, both should be 120 volts.
If OK
Unplug the unit and check the wires at the terminal strip in the machine to make sure none are loose or burned out
If OK
Check the power at the terminal strip.
Be careful as 240 volts is lethal !!!

If power is OK then check the hi-limit thermostat (Item 37 in Section 1).
Safest way to doo this is remove power from the unit (flip the breaker off) and measure it with a meter, should be 0 ohms,

Sorry I do not know anyway to trick the unit into working.

let me help you if you don't have a meter. Take the 2 wires off of the thermostat, Mr Denman is telling you about, of course the power is off, and put the terminal ends together, and put some tape around it to keep them together, and to be sure they don't hit metal, and then turn the power on, and see if it heats. If it does, you need to replace the thermostat, and the sensor, because when you put the oven in clean, it got to hot a blew the sensor. You have to replace them both. If you don't, the next time you put it in a clean cycle, it will blow the thermostat again. Tom ********************************************

Default An update to this situation

We replaced the thermostat only thinking that we probably won't use the self-clean function in the future if this is going to be the result of that effort.

We did invest in a little-sufficient-for-home-use multimeter and were able to determine that the original thermostat really was dead. We also checked our circuit breaker to ensure that it was not our problem, as well as both the bake and broil elements as we were looking for anything other than the control panel to be our problem.

After we replaced the thermastat and turned the power back on at the breaker, we started the oven up to see if it was working.

It did not work. So we continued to investigate. We ultimately were about ready to replace the control panel and then decided to check the oven just one more time. With it all put back together again and the breaker back on again, we turned it on again. And this time it worked!

Really, the only thing that changed was the breaker had been tripped a couple of times between the first check and the end result of having a working oven back.

And I still think we probably won't be using the self-cleaning function anymore. Because of the time constraints of Thanksgiving being upon us we wound up using a local parts store to buy our replacements and the guys at that shop told us that Whirlpool (and all subsidiaries) is notorious for burnt out thermostats. The self-clean function is just not worth this hassle!

Awesome!! The self clean function is great when it works. When it breaks, it's expensive. If the temp is off in any way, I believe on the model if you hold the Bake button down for 5-10 seconds, a zero will come up, and then you can hit the up or down buttom to raise or lower the temperature, and then hit start, and it will hold the new adjustment. Then hit the bake button again, to make sure it has the amount you went up or down. If not, the do all I said, and the last thing you do, instead of hitting the start button, you hit the bake button.
