Got a strange one for you.
We moved into a 5 yr old house about 6 months ago. Have a Whirlpool
built in electric oven, model RBS305PDB8. Works quite well, still
looks to be in "as-new" condition.
Periodically, at random times, sometimes once a week, sometimes once a
month, sometimes multiple times a day, when the oven is not in use and
the door is closed, the 2 lights inside the oven will flash on and off
(on for 1 second, off for 1 second, repeat) until we open and close the
I called Whirlpool, but they hadn't ever heard of this problem (But
then again, the guy told me to make sure the bulbs weren't burned out.
If they were burned out, they couldn't be flashing!!).
I've tried pushing the door closed (in case it was slightly opened)
when this happens, but that doesn't seem to work. I need to open and
then close the door to make it stop.
I found a website with error codes for Whirlpool ovens, but they all
appear on the lcd display, not by flashing the oven lights.
Has anyone ever experienced this before or have any suggestions?
