I have a built-in Whirlpool electric single wall oven (RBS305PDB12) that is misbehaving. My wife said she turned the oven on to preheat, but I noticed that it was self cleaning and that the door was locked. This situation has happened several times before and I have always blamed her for hitting the wrong buttons, but she insists that she doesn't do anything wrong and that there is something wrong with the oven.
At any rate, I hit the OFF/CANCEL button and the display indicated that it was off. But I soon noticed that the broil element was still on. I then turned the breaker off and waited for the oven to cool down enough that the door could be opened.
When I eventually turned the breaker back on, the door was unlocked and everything looked normal. I reset the clock and thought all was well. I later turned the oven on to bake preheat and the blower started and the display indicated that it was preheating. However, i soon discovered that the element did not heat at all. I then tried broil with the same results.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Here are your parts
Parts for Whirlpool RBS305PDB12 Oven -

See the attachment for the tech sheet

Could be that the thermal overload (item 37 in section 01) has blown.
Check it with a meter.

If blown replace it then carefully monitor the oven's operation as a bad control board may have caused the original problem.

Also possible that you are not getting the full 240 volts.
Try flipping the breaker off/on slowly a couple times.
If still no go check the power with a meter.

If it is OK then odds are that the control board is bad.
