Default elements

unplug your thermistor and test. it should read between 1000- 1100 ohms
or very close to these numbers. if it reads open it is bad. since it happened after you cleaned it, this sounds like the likely problem. some ovens have a resetable safety thermostat. if you have it, check the wiring diagram.

Here are your parts
Parts for Whirlpool RMC305PDQ2 Wall Oven - AppliancePartsPros.com

See the attachment for the tech sheet

Odds are that the thermostat (thermal cut-off) (item 37 in the Oven Parts section) has blown.

Could be that you have lost the 240 volts so you may want to check it.

As scott5495 said it is also a good idea to check the oven sensor to make sure it is within spec.

If the thermal cut-off is blown once it is replaced check the actual oven temperature at around 400 degrees just in case the oven is running hot and needs recalibration.

thanks for the replies. Lets say that its the thermostat. Now the problem of getting the part that is not available.
Suggestions?

EDIT: ok just ohm'd the Thermostat. Completely open. Sensor readd 1.09ohms. So probably good.
So again...sounds like i might just be in to buing a new oven all together? Unless i can find this part...

Here is the thermostat
Part number: AP2929236

Part number: AP2929236


The L135C on it means that it blows at 135 degrees C or 2785 degrees F.

You could take it to a local parts supply house and they may be able to find one for you.

Also you could go to AppliancePartsPros.
Then enter the Range/Cooktop/Oven section and search for thermostat.
then search through the results to find one that is a close match to yours.
