I have attempted to reset the thermal switch, I also replaced the switch. I was told to test the control panel. I need to know how to test the voltage so I can determine if the control panel is bad.

Does it in Broil mode? If it does and the problem is only Bake, then turn of the power to the oven and pull out the Bake heating element. Remove the wires from the heating element and check the element for continuity.

If it is open, replace the Bake heating element.

If it shows continuity, then the problem is a bad control board. You don't have to do any more tests to prove it.

This statement is correct only if Broil works.


- The Bake heating element Part number: 318255006
Part number: 318255006



- The oven control board Part number: 318010700
Part number: 318010700

Can someone help me with a problem with my whirlpool model gr450lxlb0 oven elements not coming on even though the control panel counts down on preheat and starts the cook time?

Hello,

There is the inline thermal fuse which is wired into the red wire connected to the control board. Very likely this fuse is open.

Thank you Gene...i was told to try and reset the unit by unplugging for 2 minutes. Is this a viable first step or should i just replace this fuse first?

I do not think that resetting the power will help in such situation. I also do not think that it is a good idea to replace the part without testing it for continuity first. It was just an educated guess on my side. You have to verify it.

After checking the fuse and finding it intact i put the rear cover back on thinking my next move would be to call a qualified repair man...when i plugged it back in it started working and has been working great ever since. Thanks for the advise.
