A lack of adequate power voltage, a faulty thermal fuse, a loose wire connection, or a defective temperature control thermostat can all result in the failure of the Whirlpool stove to turn on. Poor connections between the stove and the power socket, or burner knobs that fit too loosely, can cause the burners not to light. A faulty door lock motor and switch assembly can cause self-cleaning problems in a Whirlpool gas stove, as can a control board failure.

The causes of heating issues may include a defective igniter, a worn-out bake element, a faulty broil element, or a malfunctioning relay board. Failure of the temperature sensor, a burned-out convection element or a malfunctioning convection motor can lead to a lack of temperature regulation in the stove. The stove may fail to turn off when the closed relays in the control board are faulty, the bake element is worn out, or the relay in the circuit board is faulty.
