Default Whirlpool oven start button won't activate
Model Number: GJP84802   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


On this model of stove there are about 15 rubbery push buttons on the control panel. One of these, start button, activates the oven. It no longer works when I press it. Is this just a switch problem and I should replace that button? Or could it be something else?
Any advice would be appreciated.

If this button is moving freely in and out then the problem is a bad control board. Unfortunately this part is no longer available.

Thanks Gene. I took apart the control panel to take a look and saw the printed circuit that the Start button touches. The rubber button itself does move freely so I guess that was not the problem. When I put it back together, for some reason, the button was working. I also had turned off the circuit breaker to the stove while I was doing this.
Can you figure out why it would start to work again?

It could be as simple as a dust inside. Sometime reseting the power helps too. Hopefully it will last.
