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?

    What does "ohm out at 1080 at room temperature" mean? I m sorry that I don't know all the lingo :)

    I m sorry but I did not give you a poor rating. I am VERY thankful for the info you sent me. I did call a repair man and he's coming Wed. I just wanted to know more background before he came and took advantage of a clueless person.
    Thank you for all your help and I apologize if you have a poor rating

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. Catriver...post back.

    Thanks for the poor rating, told you exactly what the code meant as you asked, told you what needs to be checked. If you don't understand how to use a meter, better get a repairman. Catriver.

My frig freezes top and also spoils coleslaw freezes water beer tried everything


First, call your fridge vendor for service.
*** the following is for information only. ***
* You need a full defrosting as there is ice in your cooling coils.
* Move food items to another refrigerator.
* Do a complete DEFROST of the box. (unplug it.) Expect it to take 4 or more hours. You must wait till all water stops dripping out of the fridge. Keep checking the lower defrost drip tray at bottom of fridge. Dump out water from tray as needed. DO NOT you a hair drier or any other heat source! The heat will warp the plastic. Use a small fan to gently blow into the freezer section.
* DO NOT use an ice pick or sharp object to remove ice! Just let everything melt. (The problem of ice is inside the coils)
* Plug in Fridge but don't put any food in. Set dial temperature to the Mid range setting. Set to freezer venting to normal. Set the refrigerator to mid range. Let it cool down to 0 - 10 degrees and start making ice (in ice maker) If it does not cool down to at least 10 degrees F then call for service. Suspect bad thermostat, Blocked condenser coils, Bad pump, etc. Qualified service tech required to repair.
* Cooling okay? Reload food but don't stuff it in. Leave space between the walls to allow cold air to flow around foods. It will take a day or so to cool down food properly. Note: I may take longer if this fridge is near a heat source like a Hot water heater, Oven, Range, Steam radiator, etc.
* If your still icing up in 2-3 weeks. Then check if the coils are icing up. Defrost is not working. This needs to be checked by a tech. Have him perform annual maintenance.
* Check door seals. Kids leaving the door open? High humidity? * Note how everyone uses the fridge; are they putting hot food in it? Open hot steaming food adds heat and humidity to fridge. Hot food with thaw out other frozen food and build up frost.
* Final, Have a Tech check your fridge. Have them perform maintenance and replace worn items as needed.

Why does it get to hot and shuts down before end of timer and no ding, food stays cold


Check if the cooling fan is operating. If it is, either the thermal switch is bad (unlikely) or the magnetron is defective and overheating.

Hotplate and oven temp


There are several possibilities. Make certain your fuse at the main electrical box is correct for a 220VAC line. You do not want to OVER POWER the range. If that is normal, check all cords for insulation and flexibility. Check thermostat controls on the burners and/or oven.
If parts are normal, the only thing you can do is manually set temps lower when using the oven. Glass tops generally stay hot for several minutes after they are turned off. That is Normal, for example, to avoid Glass from fracturing; temperature slowly declines. Lastly; if all is lost, call for a serviceman to check it out, as you do not want a house fire.

Burners do not turn down to selected temp and food burns


I wish I had good things to say about GE but I don't. Probably the burner control is no good. Contact GE and get support due to the fact somebody can get hurt.

Our new microwave heats the containers but not the food. Container is too hot to touch. Food "looks" hot, usually boiling - but food isn't even warm.


Check on the material the containers are made of. If they are not microwave friendly then they will cause problems.
Some materials are designed to "Roast" the contents by absorbing the energy.
Check with a Pyrex glass container and water. The glass should stay fairly cool.

May be a shorted metal stirrer fan bearing located within the wave guide that feeds microwaves into the cooking area. If the oven is run without a proper load (water, or food), the voltage of the microwaves increase considerably causing things to arc-over inside the wave guide. You usually can't see the stirrer bearing short as it occurs internally.
