1. Press The Power/Upper Button 

To turn off your whirlpool smart double oven, first press the power or upper button. You can find the start or cancel button at the top of the oven.

You might not find a button, but you will see the upper and lower buttons on the LCD. Press the upper button to start turning it off.


2. Check the Upper Oven on the Top Left of the Screen

After finding the power button, check the upper oven on the top left of the screen. If the icon’s color is black, it’s OFF. If the icon’s color is white, it is still ON.

3. Press The Power/Upper Button Again

Next, press the power of the upper button again. In most whirlpool smart ovens, there are two power buttons. Upper and Lower both have the power button icon.

4. You’ll Hear A Chime & See A Clock Display

After pressing the upper button, you should hear a chime sound, and a clock display will appear. You may set a timer when baking so the smart oven will turn off automatically.

Just select ‘cooking’ and choose ‘bake’ in the options. A number pad will show on the screen, and you may start setting a timer on your baking.

5. Wait Until the Temperature Goes Down

After following all the steps above, wait until the oven temperature goes down. Check the upper icon. If it’s black, it is OFF.

Why Won’t It Turn Off?

It Is Set to Bake

The whirlpool will not turn off even if you’re turning it off if it is set to bake. It should finish the set timer of baking before it can be turned OFF.

It Is Self-Cleaning

The appliance must be self-cleaning if the Whirlpool smart oven doesn’t shut off. Smart appliances have this mode of self-cleaning for convenience.

You should take note of the schedule you set for the smart oven for self-cleaning. Light cleaning is usually enough for two hours and longer for a dirty oven.

There’s A Faulty Heating Element

If you’ve checked every possible reason why your Whirlpool smart oven won’t turn off, there must be a faulty heating element inside the oven. [1

The control board will send voltages to the heating elements. If a relay shorts out, the board may send continuous voltage and keep heating even if the controls have been turned off. [2] 

How To Turn It Off If It Won’t Turn Off

To turn off an oven that won’t turn off, find the circuit breaker box first, then turn the oven’s power off. Next, detach the oven door as directed by the manufacturer.

Remove the cables from the oven door switch after that. Finally, install a new oven door switch and reinstall the power cables.
