Wpl double w/o KEBC208KSS02 control panel fusible link.

7 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I'm wondering if anyone knows the heat value of the fusible link at the control panel on this wall oven. It opened and I'm thinking the reason is too much heat but usually the  hi-limit  opens due to fan issues.Thanx

For detailed questions regarding a specific part, it really would be helpful if we are provided the part number. Thanks!

That's the catch... This part is not on the parts list, and the rating is not on the schematic...

 

Control Panel Thermal Fuse — Protects the control panel area if the temperature exceeds 110˚C. If the fuse opens, it shuts down the entire unit (no clock, etc.). One end of the thermal fuse is connected to the control panel at lug P7-1, and the other end is connected to the main wire harness. The thermal fuse is a one-time, nonresettable fuse.

 

And, btw, found the part# 4456654

 

Part number: 4456654

Part number: 4456654

that's the point. There are generally two types of contol panel fusible links whirlpool uses in their ovens and the part no is not provided in the tech sheet or found on parts diagrams. How it connects to the board determines the correct part.

One (4451042) has a 230f rating and the other(4456654) has a 248f rating. AA did not ask which fuse was needed nor provided us with the style of connector, but wanted the temp rating only. That implies he knows the part number and then it would be no need for us to look at the schematic to see how it is connected then find the part number before searching for the rating. AA is a tech not a DIYer.

If AA could not find the part number, advise us of that fact and the answer would be more than a simple rating. It would include instructions on how to find the correct part number for future situations. As a tech, knowing how to find that information and even the right question to ask, is as important as the answer.

If it was a diyer questioning , the simple answer would have been given.

Sorry, wasn't trying to be critical, just helpful... I just remember how hard it was to find that part the first time I needed it...

Hey thank you both on the help on that link.I went ahead and picked up QBP fusible links ( 4 for 6.00). I'll need extras to determine the cause of the fault if any. For us ,these rarely blow.Thanks once again and thanks for the

oh no  I didn't think you were being critical Chat, My brutha..   I  was interested as to why AA wanted the rating only ...was there an assumption that a part number was not available because it wasn't easily found?  Then the question regarding rating was putting the cart before the horse...just pushing our brethren to stay on their toes. lol
