Whirlpool Wall Oven not responding to temp change
« on: October 27, 2008, 11:31:20 AM »
I have no error codes, but after self cleaning my oven does the bake preheat,
temperature shows 350 but when I try to raise the temperature the display goes down not up. Same in Broil. What's up?

Model Number: GBS307PDB1 icon

The answer is: You should never run your stove on self clean. The temperature gets too hot for them delicate electronics.

You might try removing the board and cleaning the connector. The excessive heat causes crap to run down into the connector pins.

Any Error Codes ?

It may be a bad Temperature Sensor.
If you could check it's resistance...

This unit belongs to a neighbor, I asked if there were any codes before she tried
to reset it by turning the breakers off for 15 min. (as instructed by a Whirlpool Rep on the phone) they told her to get a repair person if that didn't work. She didn't know what to do with the PF. She called me, I went over and cleared the PF. Everything seemed OK until I tried to adjust temp setting it would adjust down. I opened the unit and checked all of the connectors (unpluged, inspected, & reconnected) all appeared to be clean and making good contact. The touch pad ribbon was not firm in its plug but insured good contact in the control board & snapped in the plastic housing. I did not remove the control board from the panel but it looked OK from face side, no signs of component over heating.

 Can a temperature sensor fail with out giving an error code?

What about the sensor, did you inspect the quick plug on it?

It will be in the back. It will have 2 small white wires going to a white quick plug. Sometimes if you cut that plug slap out and hard wire the sensor it will work. Note: The new sensor does not come with a quick plug you have to splice it also so why not go ahead and bypass the quickplug and see if the sucker works?

Just kiddin about the quick plug, it was OK so was the sensor, people decided that they would buy a new oven and not a control board ( We have had it on order for goning on 3 weeks and Whirlpool says they wont have any for at least 2 1/2 more weeks. Not the 1st time I/ve been stiffed because of backorder parts.

FYI several of the techs were disscussing the self cleaning problem and they were saying that they found that boring a 1 1/2 - 2 inch hole in the rear corners
(top & bottom) of the cabinet and opening the doors and/or door a little when in self clean has help the cooling along the back of the oven resulting in fewer part failures. Sound to me like a good idea, the ventilation fan could use an additional source of cooler air to move around the box.
