Hi I’m Cherylin and today we are going to be replacing the thermal fuse in a Whirlpool electric range. You may need to replace the
thermal fuse if your oven is not heating up at all. This repair should only take about
10-15 minutes. For this repair we are only going to need two tools. A flathead screwdriver
and a Philips head screwdriver. If you don’t already have a new thermal fuse they are available
for purchase on our website. Before repairing any appliance always make sure it is completely
disconnected from its power source.To remove the back panel we are going to need to remove
the 5 Philip head screws on either side of the back panel. We’ll start by doing that. Now we can remove the back panel. Just lift it up. Here we have the thermal fuse it’s
held on by one Philips head screw so we’ll just need to remove that. And then we just need to remove the two wires connected to it. So if their on there too snugly you can
use a flat head screwdriver to help pry ’em off. And there we go. Once you have your new thermal fuse we’ll start by reconnecting the wires to it. Doesn’t matter which wire connects
where it’s just creating a circuit. And then just re-screw in the Philips head screw. Now we can replace the back panel. You’re going to take the top of the panel and slide it under the ridge of the frame. Line up the screw holes. Not too hard right. Here’s a quick recap. All of our OEM parts and tools
are available for purchase on our website. Check ’em out along with our social media sites here.

  1. Does this effect only oven or heating of elements as well? Not one of my elements is heating up and power seems to be all good at the plug
