    Unhappy Whirlpool gas range won't shut off

    We have a 6 year old Whirlpool SF 110AXso2 gas range. It appears to be a base model. Not timer, no glass front door, no nothing. Just 4 burners, an oven and a broiler.

    Recently, we have had problems with it not shutting off. Sometimes it does, sometimes it won't.

    You can hear the gas and see the flame. Sometimes, when you turn the know to off, there is no audible click.

    Today I had to shut off the gas and unplug it.

    I am not an expert, I guess you say a novice. With help from the Self Help/ appliance repair forum, I was able to fix both a washer and a gas dryer, so I am confidnt I can make a repair once I know what part needs replaced.

    Tried looking and found a couple possibilities, possibly a thermo stat or a bake or broil element.

    SO, suggestions? Things I can look for, test?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    SF 110AXso2
    That is likely SF110AXSQ2

    Recently, we have had problems with it not shutting off. Sometimes it does, sometimes it won't.
    That is a sign of a bad thermostat/control...

    Should be open ( no continuity ) when in the off position and closed ( has continuity ) when in the on position.

    I got the part in the mail today. At work, so not sure if it came with directions on how to install.

    Tires looking for directions or a video on line and can't anything.

    Anyone got any?

    Thanks Jeff

    I got the part from somewhere else but it didn't come with directions. I searched a lot on line and couldn't find any.

    I got it fixed though. I did grab some pics. I was going to do a write up if that is ok.

    Ok, here's my attempt at a write up.

    Jeff, feel free to edit/correct/amend as you feel best.

    How to replace a temperature control thermostat on a Whirlpool gas range

    First make sure the gas is shut off and the appliance is unplugged.

    Inside the oven, on the right wall, you will see the temperature sensor in two clips.



    I found it easier to pull the clips out with the sensor still in it. This is done my squeezing the top and bottom of the clip and pulling out. You can then easily remove the sensor from the clips.

    You will see that the sensor feeds down through the lid of the range.



    Feed it up through the hole on top.




    Now, lift the top of the range. On the front wall is the actual unit. Here's what it looks like on the inside/backside.
    There is a black wire on the left and a red wire on the right. Remove those two wires with gentle tug, and pay attention to which wire was on which side.

    Part 2. I could only post 4 pics in one reply. Jeff, is there a way you can fix this? Thanks

    Remove the knob. You will see two small Phillips head screws. I recommend using a magnetic tip screw driver and these screws are short and will fall out once easily.



    Once those screws are out, you can easily pull the unit out.

    Installation is in reverse. It is important that you put the replacement unit in the correct side up. If it is upside down, the shaft for the knob will be at an upward angle and it won't line up correctly. Again, be sure to hook up the negative and positive wires correctly.

    Nice job!

    I can't change that...forum policy.

    be sure to hook up the negative and positive wires correctly.
    There is no negative or positive on the control, but you are correct it is important to put the wires back on the same way they came off....that is one nice thing about cell phones today, take a pic before you remove the old wires so you have something to reference when putting it back together.

    Thanks Jeff.

    I wish the pics were better, but this was a quick repair so we could eat and get to church. I just used my cell phone. I think they are good enough for someone to see what they need to do. Ideally I would have used my wife's DSLR to take the pics.

    I wasn't sure if maybe a staff member could somehow combine the 2 posts into one, or even copy and paste them themselves as one post. I know on some forums, staff have different privileges then members.
