Whirlpool range repair issues we can handle
Regardless of the brand or type of range you have, the appliance repair experts at Sears Home Services can perform quality Whirlpool range repairs for problems big or small. A service call involves diagnosing the appliance's malfunction and making repairs fast. A repair technician from our team can also recommend routine maintenance to extend your range's life.
Range burners won't work
If one of the burners on your electric range isn't working, the surface element may need replacing. If you have a problem with a burner not shutting off, it could be a faulty surface element or surface element switch. If a gas range burner fails to light, a food spill could be clogging the burner. Barring that, you may need to replace the spark igniter or the igniter control module.
Oven not heating evenly
When your oven fails to cook food evenly, the problem could be a malfunctioning oven igniter (gas) or a faulty baking element (electric).
Oven won't heat to right temperature
If your Whirlpool range won't heat to the proper temperature, it could need recalibration or a part might have failed. If the broiler or bake element only gets hot in sections, it lacks electrical continuity and needs to be replaced. Other possible problems include the temperature sensor or the temperature control thermostat.
Oven light won't turn on
Try replacing the bulb yourself. If that doesn't work, it's likely an electrical problem and requires an appliance repair expert. The problem could be a faulty light switch, electronic control, or connecting wire.
Preventive range maintenance
Scheduling regular appliance service ensures your Whirlpool range will work efficiently and effectively. It can also prevent costly, unexpected repairs over time and extend the life of your appliance.
When you request the Kitchen Appliance Clean & Maintain package, your Sears Home Services technician will inspect your range (or cooktop and oven) and other kitchen appliances for proper functioning, wear and tear, and water and gas leaks, while also cleaning internal components.

Whirlpool Range repair FAQ
What types of ranges and stoves does Sears repair?
The appliance repair experts from Sears Home Services can repair and maintain a wide variety of ranges, including slide-in gas or electric ranges, drop-in gas or electric ranges, freestanding or slide-in induction ranges, and freestanding gas or electric stoves.
Is it worth it to fix a Whirlpool range?
An electric range lasts an average of 13 years while gas ranges average 15 years. If your range is less than 10 years old and your repair needs are less than half the cost of a new range, it's typically more economical to repair the appliance.
It's almost always worth it to repair a range that's less than five years old because it will likely last for many more years once repaired. The majority of new gas or electric ranges or stoves cost roughly $400 to $1,500, but higher-end products can run thousands more. Plus, consider the delivery and installation costs.
How much does it cost to repair a Whirlpool range?
Costs for a Whirlpool range repair can vary by the type of issue, and the parts and time required to complete the service. Your location can also affect the price.
The average range repair costs $230 to $320. Replacing a temperature sensor can cost less than $200, but installing a new glass stove top on an electric model can cost more than $600. Having a new surface burner installed, the most common repair, varies by model but costs an average of $200.
All work done by your Sears Home Services certified repair technician carries a 90-day guarantee. If your range can't be repaired, you'll typically pay only a service appointment fee, and you'll be eligible for a discount on a new unit.
How long does it take to repair a Whirlpool range?
When you request service, Sears Home Service can promptly schedule an appointment online or over the phone, often for same-day or next-day service in many areas. One of our range repair technicians will come to your home, diagnose the problem quickly, and complete the repair efficiently.
Sears Home Services stocks a multitude of parts for many oven brands, but sometimes access to parts, especially for older appliances, could delay repairs past the initial service call.
How do you know when it's time to replace your Whirlpool range?
While gas or electric ranges may last up to 15 years or longer depending on usage, wear and tear on cooking appliances can create a fire hazard.
Some warning signs that it's time to replace a Whirlpool cooking appliance reaching the end of its lifespan:
- Electric elements take too long to heat up or fail to glow bright red on high
- Crack in an electric glass cooking surface
- Gas flames flicker from red to yellow instead of burning blue
- Smell of gas
- Rust in the oven
- Stove elements that fail to work, often caused by failing buttons or faulty wiring
What are the benefits of repairing a Whirlpool range?
Undoubtedly, the greatest economical benefit of repairing your Whirlpool range is the cost, especially if it's not too old.
Otherwise, as long as the problem isn't a health or safety hazard that requires replacement, weigh the cost of repair against the unit's age. There are also the environmental tradeoffs-delaying replacement delays disposal, but appliances are constantly becoming more environmentally friendly and energy efficient.
