The Whirlpool wall oven shows error codes if there are temperature malfunctions and circuit problems. They also appear if the electronic oven fails or the oven door locks. If the oven fails to bake evenly, it points to a problem in the bake element. When the oven is operating normally, the bake element glows red. If defective, it cannot transmit heat evenly causing the uneven baking.

The problem also arises when the broil element and the oven sensor are faulty. Temperature problems in the oven arise when the broil element and temperature sensor are defective. A defective bake element also causes the inability to turn on and off. These defects prevent the regulation and control of temperature during baking. It causes the failure to warm up or bake evenly.

If the light bulb in the oven is out, it points to a defective bulb requiring a replacement. If the oven develops self-cleaning problems, there could be a faulty locking mechanism between the switch assembly and the door lock motor. If the fan rotates continuously, it points to defects in the oven control board.
