Hi, Im Daniel and welcome to Just Answer. Sorry to hear you are having trouble with your oven, Hopefully i can help you on this.

You may get an offer for a phone request, Now im afraid i dont do them as i only do the online chat so if you dont want the phone request then just ignore it.

Can you post the make and model number please.

I have no idea I’m really sorry I just know it’s a whirlpool oven I can send a picture if that helps ?
Expert:  Daniel replied 14 days ago.

If you open the oven door there will be a sticker with the model details on it on the oven frame.

Okay it is type FXM6 and the model number is ***** 262/IX
Expert:  Daniel replied 14 days ago.

Thanks for that.

So if theres nothing on the display have you checked it hasnt tripped the fuse box out?

If the power is fine then im afraid theres a fault in there as it may be either the over heat thermostat or the control board im afraid.

I’ll have a look but I do have a feeling it overheated as there’s nothing in the display
Expert:  Daniel replied 14 days ago.

If it over heated then the safety thermostat at the back will have tripped out.

Normally after its cooled down it cuts back in so see what happens in the next 15 minutes.
