We carry replacement parts, repair parts and accessories for 5,259 Whirlpool Range models
A Whirlpool gas or electric range is designed for many years of quality performance; however, even the best appliance can experience performance problems occasionally. If the oven is not heating to the proper temperature or has stopped working entirely, try troubleshooting the problem yourself using these tips before calling in a technician.
The most obvious potential cause of a malfunctioning oven is the oven control thermostat or sensor that regulates the interior temperature. Fortunately, the thermostat is one of the easiest stove repair parts to acquire and replace. Confirm your suspicions about a malfunctioning oven thermostat using a standalone bi-metal oven thermometer. Place the thermometer in the center of the oven, and set the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. Jot down the minimum and maximum temperature during the cycle, add them up, and divide the total by two. If the average temperature is more than 25 degrees off, the oven's internal thermostat is likely malfunctioning.
Before replacing the oven's thermostat or sensor using range parts from Sears PartsDirect, try calibrating the temperature control apparatus using the instructions in your Whirlpool range owner's manual. Most range models allow owners to calibrate the temperature control by pulling the exterior temperature setting knob off and making adjustments to the calibration ring on the back of the knob.
An oven that fails to heat at all may need the thermal fuse replaced. Fortunately, gas and electric range DIY repair help to make this easy replacement is available at Sears PartsDirect.
