Error code E2F3

My oven became very hot- burned my food. It took a long time to cool down. the coils stayed on even when the oven shut off. I called sears and they said a repair man has to come and I should not use the oven until then. what does the error code mean? What if I use it?

Re: error code E2F3

Traci, The error code means overtemperature, just what happened to you. It exceeded 575 degrees. Two things that have to be checked here. First the temp sensor itself, it should ohm out at 1080 at room temperature. If it's within specs, which I doubt, then the main board has to be checked for a welded or closed relay. I wouldn't use the oven. back.

You need a new thermostat or oven sensor. These people are pretty good but I am have trouble find details on the model number you gave. This gives an idea.

What does it mean when your Samsung flat top oven and broiler will not work and the code reads E-08

E08 Error Message on a Samsung Electric Built-in Oven:

The E08 preheating error code appears if the set oven temperature is not reached within 50 minutes. If this code appears, the reason might be due to overheated thermostats, a defective heater or a defective relay; in which case a repair will need to be arranged.
However, if food has been put into the oven during the preheating time that may cause the error code, since the presence of food cools the oven and so it doesn't reach the right temperature. The error message can be removed by turning the oven off and turning it on again.
To prevent this error code from happening again, the oven should not be used during the preheating period. The preheating period ends just after the sound signal and the icon in the display have turned off. When the oven gives the signal, it's close to the set temperature and your food can be put in.

Need range JS968 cooktop seems to not cool down when turned down, even boils food when turned down to low, what can be done...I'm almost ready to purchase nother range. Thanks

It is normal for food to continue to boil for a short period of time after turning the burner to a low setting. Is your burner staying hot long after it is turned off?

Well my friend these type ovens have eyes and sensers. It could be that you left something on the sensor when you were cleaning it. That is if it is not self cleaning. Self cleaning gets real hot and could affect your appliance in some way. It shouldn't but it might.
