Customer Question
Our Whirlpool Range (Model...

Our Whirlpool Range (Model WFE515SOESO) Serial # R71183496 Is under warranty. When my wife used it for the first time on Thanksgiving, she notes that It takes way too long for the oven to heat up...even at 350 degrees! She knows that something is wrong. Can you help?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Purchased April 1997 from Menards in Des Moines. As noted in the message previously, the Model is WFE515SOESO

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Absolutely not!

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Yes. What do we do? Is their a Whirlpool technician in Des Moines that can repair ranges under warranty??

Check the hidden bake element it is likely burned out. You have to remove the bottom plate inside the unit to get at it you may find that element burned out most likley...bake element is plart #9755770 if you find something else let me know!
