I am fixing my Whirlpool GJP84800. The oven will not reach heat up to full temperature. The oven will get warm but it will not reach the programed temperature. Any suggestions where to start.

Thanks
Paul

Access to the Bake element by removing R.H. (as you stand in front of stove now) side panel. 2 screws on back and 1 on inside rail where the drawer is. Check for 240v on element terminals when oven turned on - if it's there, replace Element:

... The oven will not reach heat up to full temperature.

has it worked OK up till now at this location ?
Any recent electrical work done on the house ?
How far "off temperature" is it ?
tI may be a bad Oven Sensor.

It has worked fine and is an existing installation. The top element works but the bottom one doesn't. I did a quick check on the element from behind and it appears to be open. The top one buzzes fine on a continuity tester but not the lower one.The patient is now sedated and on the operating table. I am going on.

Okay so 240 on the element and no continuity. Now the question is how do you get the element out?

I have a Whirlpool GJP84800 that I am replacing the bake element. I might as well replace the cracked inner oven door glass. Looking at the parts diagram you take the door apart from the outside in. Can anyone provide some instructions or suggestions on how to disassemble the door.

Thanks
Paul

I have a Whirlpool GJP84800 that has a stove top element that has a bridge. However when you turn on the single element the bridge also comes one. Both elements come on correctly when you select the bridge and element. I also have a burnt out inner element on set of elements. Any guidance on how to test the elements and get in to replace them will be reward with endless adulation and praise.

Thanks
Paul

Merged all of your topics into one - as for the Bridge Element, the switch will energize only the surface element for 180 degrees of the turn, and both the surface and bridge for the othe 180 degrees - if the bridge element stays on for the entire travel of the switch, then the switch has failed.

To disassemble door - first remove the door from oven, open to first stop, the lift upward on door and pull bottom out. Set door down on a blanket etc, remove lower trim and outer glass/side trims and set aside - unscrew hinges from bottom lip and handle/vent. Remove inner reflector panel and insulation, now you can lift out the mid glass and frame to access the inner glass panel retainers.
