Question and Answers

Q:

I replaced the heating element on a whirlpool built in electric oven but the new element does not work. Are there other parts that tipically go bad?

A:

You could have blown oven shut-down thermal fuse in that circuit. The wiring diagram in the first image below shows that component circled in red for the upper oven. The lower oven has a similar fuse. The physical location of those fuses is shown in the second image. You would need to shut off the house circuit breakers for the oven and pull it out of the cabinet to access those fuses. They are located on the outside back wall of the oven cavity. Remove the outer back panel on the oven to access that component. If those fuses are okay, then you could have a bad relay on the electronic oven control board. The relays are circled in green and blue. The location of that control board is in the console. It is mounted behind the control panel. A wiring failure in that circuit could also prevent the element from heating.

You can order parts from this page: Whirlpool Oven Model GBD307PDS09 Parts . Be sure that you shut off the house circuit breakers for the oven before accessing internal components and replacing parts.

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

Q:

I have a bypass on my water conditioner 460 Novram MP and cannot tell if it is in or out of service.

A:

I apologize, we don't have any information on a Novram water softener. I don't know where to tell you to look for assistance on your water heater.

You can buy a package of test strips to test the hardness of your water at most hardware stores. Sears has them I am sure.

Q:

I overfilled my mower, Mountfield Power Drive 460/PO/ES, with oil, drained & refilled. Now it won't start. Any suggestions? Help!

A:

Try removing the spark plug and pulling the starter rope 7-8 times to blow any excess oil from the cylinder. Clean the spark plug or replace it. There might still be some oil in the cylinder and up inside the spark plug.
