FIVE KEY BENEFITS & FEATURES
1.
The Largest Oven Capacity In The Industry
a) The Super Capacity 465™ Range offers more oven space than any other range in the
industry—4.65 cubic feet.
b) Large meals are never a problem with the spacious capacity.
c) Save time by cooking multiple meals and freezing them for the busy days ahead.
2.
Consistent Cooking Results
a) AccuSimmer™ burners on gas ranges provide precise low-heating for delicate sauces and
chocolates (Models SF385 & SF395).
b) Food cooks evenly throughout the oven cavity.
c) Electronic controls maintain oven temperature swings within ±20˚F.
d) AccuBake™ Triple Cycling Elements on electric models with EZ-Touch 200 & EZ-Touch
300 oven controls.
e) Custom Broil allows the selection of temperature from 300˚F to 525˚F (300˚F to 500˚F on
electric ranges) so that everything from fish to steaks broil perfectly (on all Touch Control
models).
3.
Easy-To-Use Controls
a) Whirlpool EZ-Touch™ Electronic Controls offer the following innovative features:
• One-Touch operation sets Bake at 350˚F, and Self-Clean for 3.5 hours.
• Exclusive Preheat Countdown visually indicates the time required for oven preheating.
The oven control beeps when the preset temperature is reached.
• Child Lockout disables the control panel to prevent children from accidentally turning the
oven on.
• Easy to understand left-to-right programming logic.
• Color-Keyed touch pads.
4.
Easy To Clean
a) Spillguard™ Cooktop has raised edges to help contain spills. Porcelain surfaces wipe
clean with a damp sponge.
b) CleanTop™ Ranges offer radiant elements under a one-piece, smooth ceramic glass
surface for easy clean up.
c) Seamless cooktop on coil ranges lifts easily for cleaning the burner box.
d) Automatic door lock for self-clean ovens requires no external latch to lock the oven door
for the Self-Clean cycle.
5.
Modern Design
a) Stylish cabinet depth design offers a built-in look.
b) A modern curved console and a one-piece solid handle are designed with no exposed
screws or unsightly trim.
c) A hidden vent.
d) 200-degree rotation infinite flame setting valves on gas ranges (SF385 & SF395) offer
optional ergonomic, one-turn operation, while allowing precise burner management.
e) Whirlpool “Family Look” styling compliments an entire kitchen of Whirlpool appliances.

OVEN DOOR LOCK SYSTEM
The oven door lock system uses a solenoid-activated, push-push mechanism. The oven door will
lock as soon as it is closed and the CLEAN function is programmed into the Electronic Oven Control
(EOC). When the solenoid is activated, the plunger extends, and the actuator rod moves the latch
to lock the door.

After the CLEAN cycle is completed and the temperature inside the oven cavity falls below 500˚F,

THE OVEN TEMPERATURE SENSOR
The oven temperature sensor is a “Resistance Temperature Detector” (RTD), and is composed
of a stainless steel tube with a thin film of platinum at the end. It is located at the upper left rear corner
of the oven cavity. The RTD is a nonadjustable assembly, but may be checked at room
temperature, or at 350˚F. A sensor resistance of less than 550 ohms is regarded as a shorted
sensor, and a resistance greater than 3000 ohms is regarded as an open sensor. When the oven
control senses a resistance of less than 550 ohms, and greater than 3000 ohms, the bake and broil
functions will be turned off.
To test the oven temperature sensor, perform the
following steps:
1.
Use an ohmmeter and set the range switch to
R x 10.
2.
With no power applied, touch the leads of the
ohmmeter to the connector pins of the sensor
(you do not have to separate the connectors).
Depending upon the oven temperature, you
should obtain the corresponding reading
shown in the chart:
