My whirlpool built in oven RBD305s control panel went out

This answer was rated:

My whirlpool built in oven RBD305's control panel went out after a storm. How do I know if I need to replace just the control panel or the panel and the electronic control board? Thanks for the help, Karen
Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! Do you have a meter to test for power with? There is a fuse in the wiring harness that may have opened.

no meter to test power


Is there a diagram to look for the fuse?

The fuse is right behind the control panel and looks like the picture below. It is in line with the black power wire to the control panel from the power supply terminal block.

I have located the fuse. If we can get a volt meter, how do I test for power?

Is the fuse replaceable by a non technician?



Yes, most will simply unplug but some may have to be connected in using connectors. You can test the fuse for continuity out of the circuit or test for 120 VAC between each side of the fuse to ground. Let me know what you find.

It will take a little while.

Thank you

No worries, take your time and reply back when you can. Be very careful while testing live circuits!

Tested the fuse, there is no resistance through the fuse.

Appears fuse is working?

Just to clarify, no resistance, meaning the fuse reads full continuity? If so, test for 120 VAC between the line that leads from the fuse to the control and to ground. Is there voltage there?

Okay, you have a faulty control. Can you please post the rest of the model number, found on a tag on the LH side of the oven, behind the lower oven door?
