Can you please provide me with the full model # XXXXX the tag on the unit.
There are 55 different oven models that start with RBD305
And when you mention you replaced the thermal fuse, where was it located and what part # XXXXX you put in.
I think it is is RBD305PDB14
Ok, one moment please.
Can you please verify the part # XXXXX the thermal fuse you replaced?
Sorry, just saw you comment. I replaced thermal fuse(NNN) NNN-NNNNwith what I could get. (NNN) NNN-NNNNwas unavailable. The old one had no continuity and the new one stil has.
The correct replacement part # XXXXX(NNN) NNN-NNNNis(NNN) NNN-NNNN/p>
Where can I get it?
Just type the # XXXXX google and you will find a bunch of places to purchase it.
That does not mean that whatever part you have in now is the problem however.
There is a fuse behind each oven. They will both need to be checked for continuity.
The other fuse is 4451354
They are 2 different fuses.
I don't think the thermal is the issue. I used the right part. Where is the other fuse?
If both fuses are replaced and the unit is still dead, you will need to check to see if you are getting power to the control board.

OK. I was unaware of that. I will look.
Ok. As already mentioned, if both fuses are good, check for voltage at the control board. There should be a wiring diagram behind the control panel to assist you. If you have power at the board and the unit is still dead, replace the board.
If you are happy with my guidance, please rate me well. Have a good night. Good luck and thanks.
OK. Thanks. Seems to be the board.
Be aware that some whirlpool and kitchenaid ovens have an inline fuse on the end of one of the wires on the harness that goes to the control board. I don't see it listed on your parts breakdown, but it is worth looking for.
If it is there, it looks like (or similar to) this-
That is in this oven. Pin ~24.
Then that is more than likely failed before the control board.
It is meant as a last resort to protect the board.
Can I bypass for testing?
Some, as the one I have shown have a plug at each end, some have to be released from the tab and pulled out to replace.
Sure, just to test..
As always, be careful around electric. :)
Call me sparky!
I have an electrician brother in law.. he sparks lots of stuff
You rock. Cut the fuse out and all is good. Will replace. Thanks!!
