I assume that the cooktop surface elements are working properly.

Based on your details, I suspect that you have a safety thermostat on that outside back wall of the oven cavity that is tripped. That would prevent the bake and broil elements from heating. You can shut off the house circuit breakers and pull the range out of the cabinet to check that component. Remove the outside back panel on the back of the range. A photograph of that safety thermostat is shown in this link for the replacement part: Thermostat for Whirlpool Range Model RS969PXGQ0 . If you can find that thermostat on the outside back wall of the oven cavity, then you can try this brief test (with the range still unplugged ):

  1. Pull the wires off of that safety thermostat.
  2. Connect the bare ends of the wires together securely.
  3. Tape the ends of those wires with electrical tape so that the connection does not short out against the metal cabinet.
  4. Briefly power up the range and see if the bake and broil element will heat with that thermostat bypassed.


If the oven elements heat properly with that thermostat bypassed, then replacing that component should fix your problem. That thermostat will sometimes trip during a self clean cycle.

NOTE: Restore the wiring to the original configuration immediately following this test. Do not continue to operate the oven with that safety thermostat bypassed . Be sure that you shut off the house circuit breakers for the range before accessing and handling those wires for the safety thermostat. The L2 supply wire is constantly energized when the circuit breakers are on.

If you replace that thermostat, be sure that you monitor the performance of the oven and broiler for the next few uses. If the bake or broil element heat constantly and overheat the oven, then that thermostat will trip again. In that situation, you will need to fix the cause of the overheating condition. You could have a stuck relay on the control board or a broken element in the oven that is shorting to the metal cabinet.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Q:

Can a sensor keep your oven from heating if its not working?

A:

Diagnosing why an oven stopped heating may be a simple sensor or it may be more complicated. I would suggest adding the complete model number to help the expert provide the best answer possible. I did find a more general answer that my help. I attached to the link below.

A:

There is a chance that the oven temperature sensor probe could prevent the oven from heating but that is rare. A voltage supply problem or a blown Oven Shutdown Thermal Fuse would be more common causes for that failure. A wiring failure or a bad electronic control board would also prevent the oven from heating.

Those components are shown in the image below.

I assume that the surface elements are heating. If not, then I recommend that you check the house circuit breakers for the range. The control will power up if the range is getting 120 volts of AC power. If the L2 leg of 240 volt power is missing, none of the oven elements or surface elements will heat.

A service technician will normally need to diagnose and repair this type of failure in your range. You can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .
