Question about Whirlpool RBS275PD Electric Single Oven
Hello, I have a Whirlpool combioven type avm 689.
The problem is when I close the door there is a humming sound (I think it is the condensator) and the display says ERR1.
Funny thing is the display is working fully when the door is opened.
What can I do ????
Kind regards, Bas, Netherlands
SOURCE: Oven door stays slightly open
The unit may be out of plumb ( square to the floor ). I suggest you get a level and make sure the stove/oven is level and if it's not, there are some levelers ( where legs would be on the bottom ) that can be adjusted with needle nose pliers or a cresent wrench. If this doesn'e work, you may have some hinges sprung and need to replace them. Good Luck

Had same problem with my KitchenAid. 10 years old. Ran self cleaning cycle, oven died!!!! Called repair. Appears to be thermal fuse. Part on order. Microcomputer had some brown spots on it. Tey wanted us to replace it too. But will wait to see if fuse is problem. Repair - $150 vs. $570. If it's the higher price, we'll buy a new oven before putting that kind of money into it. Will NEVER run a clean cycle again even if I have to buy a new oven.

The F3 E2 error code indicates that the electronic oven control board in the range senses an over-temperature condition in the oven.
This can be caused by a failed temperature sensor probe, a wiring problem between the sensor and the control board, or a failed electronic oven control board.
If the oven is apparently not overheating when this error code appears, then your likely failure is the temperature sensor probe.
If the oven is overheating, then you likely have a failed electronic oven control board due to a stuck relay not cycling the oven heating element off properly.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Welcome to FixYa
sound in oven is caused when either the door latch mechanism goes bad or the
control board itself is bad. First check the door latch...if the problem is still
there then replacing the control is recommended repair. Please get back to me
if you have any other questions.
