This oven replaces a previous, much older model of the same type. So I knew it would be noisy, but this new one is even noisier then the old one. It sounds like the wind noise you hear when there is a hurricane outside and the winds force their way thru the window sides. Takes me back to my youth in Florida.Preheating takes about 5 minutes longer than previously. Apparently a result of the covered element on the bottom. Tho once preheated it does a very good job of properly cooking.Convection is better than before as the additional element (I think surrounding the convection fan) roasts food quickly and evenly.Don't ever remove a door, we had to and getting it back on created way more work and effort than it's worth. Call the repair man! And be sure to use the enclosed grommets for screwing the unit to the cabinet if you do a self install, or the porcelain can get damaged.Overall, good quality oven, cooks well, easy to use. Too noisy and slow to preheat,

The oven vents at the bottom into the kitchen. Oven was venting at high temperatures. Oven was checked out - installation perfect, thermostat perfect, seals perfect. Before oven even finished preheating, 128 degree hot air was pouring into kitchen. This is the design, and there was nothing that could be fixed. Apparently the venting temperature is within an acceptable range to Whirlpool and the oven works according to Whirlpool specs. Bottom line: I am left with an oven that I consider unusable unless I am willing to have my kitchen heat up to 128 degrees or more. This problem voids any good features. BUYER BEWARE! THERE IS NO RECOURSE! I HAVE TRIED!

Do not recommend
By The silent chef

Comments about Whirlpool Black Electric Double Wall Oven:
Excellent oven right up to the point you turn it on. Fan noise to be expected, but the incessant whistling wind noise is unacceptable. This oven was a replacement for an old but very reliable GE product. If this is really the way new ovens are intended to operate, which I cannot believe is the case, then dealers really should be obligated to inform potential customers.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought this double oven a few weeks ago and I am very happy with it. It is easy to use and cooks great. The glass in the doors have a green tint. Other than that, I am pleased with it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Nice oven but...
from Centennial, Co
This oven replaces a Whirlpool microwave and oven combination. This oven was 1/2 inch wider and we had to enlarge the wall opening, The installation was easy. We like the double oven and the clean lines. Controls are easy to read and the oven heats well and is easy to use. The fan is louder then expected. (On when the oven is heating and cooling.) We find it intrusive and annoying. We purchased the oven at a national home improvement retailer for over 25% less than retail, so we can live with the louder then expected fan noise. If the fan was more muted, it would be a great oven.
Don't buy this oven
By Very unhappy customer
from Rutland, MA
We had this oven installed a week ago. (serial number D54406390) When we used I for the first time we discovered a loud shrill whistling noise associated with the fan. We had a technician look at it. He agreed that the noise was very loud. He thought that the fan was running too high. He contacted Whirlpool and they said that they have had multiple complaints but are doing nothing to address this issue. They also told him that it was "normal". I am 67 years old and have had multiple ovens over the years and this is not NORMAL. I contacted customer service asking them to take back the oven and give us a refund but was told that they do not do that for normal issues. I am not finished pursuing this but want to advise others not to purchase this oven. I would advise not to purchase any Whirlpool appliances at this point.

Do not buy!!!!!! Oven is extremely loud! From the moment you turn it on to heat up a loud whistling sound starts and does not turn off until you have turned the oven off and it has cooled down. May take up to 30 minutes once turned off!!!! I have tried to keep this oven as it has been an ordeal to get it delivered and installed (and expensive too). But today I am calling and asking for a replacement. When standing in my kitchen I feel like I am in a wind tunnel because of the terrible sound. :(

I have really liked this new stove. It can be a bit loud, but it is not an issue for me.

Great Customer Service
By Happy Whirpool Customer
from Seminole County, Florida
After having issues a month and a half ago. I contacted Whirlpool's Customer Care. After review of photos and my letter regarding interior finish defects; they agreed to replacement of our double ovens; purchase July of 2015. I am thankful for the assistance I received and am grateful for their positive response and care.
Difficult to clean
from Seven Fields, PA
I like the look and design but I would not recommend the convection oven unless you are a true baker. The oven is very noisy due to the fans and it takes a long time for it to cool off and shut off.
from Pipe Creek, Texas
Every feature is nice but the large glass door makes viewing food really special.
