Home repair friends,
I have a Whirlpool (mod #RBD275PD) in-wall electric oven. It has worked
perfectly since installed seven years ago. A few days ago I ran the
self-cleaning cycle, which did a fine job. Last night was the first
time I've needed to use the oven since the cleaning. I set the
temperature and started the oven as usual. When the pre-heat timer
chimed I opened the door and the oven was stone cold. The light, fan,
clock, and all controls are all working, but neither the top nor the
bottom elements will heat. I have checked that there are no delayed
cooking times set and that the temperature lock is turned off. I
checked my circuit breakers--nothing was tripped. I flipped the breaker
off and then back on--still nothing. I'm stumped. Is it possible that
the self-cleaning cycle coincidentally burned out both heating elements
at the same time? Any ideas as to what might be happening and how I can
remedy the situation will be greatly appreciated.
A wire could have burnt off inside the unit, esp at the power block,
safety thermostat switch may have opened up in the clean cycle....like
the one below...
Thermal protector (fuse)
That is -part- of the full model#.

Thanks for your response. Would burned wires at the power block and/or
a stuck safety thermostat be items a relatively handy homeowner could
deal with? Your expert guidance would be appreciated.
Also, my full model number appears to be RBD275PD06.
Yes and yes. The oven(s) would have to be pulled out to view the power
terminal block ( on top ) and the safety thermostat ( on the back ).
Closest that I found RBD275PDQ6, RBD275PDB6....I went with the Q might
look like an O.
This should have continuity when ohmed with an ohm meter, or join the
2 wires toegther as a test.
Thrmst-fix (thermal fuse)
Check for 220 volts AC coming into the black and red oo the power
