Question about Whirlpool RF365 Electric Kitchen Range
What does code mean
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.
I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair this oven failure. If you want to attempt to diagnose and repair this failure yourself, resubmit your question with additional details.
Good luck and please rate FixYa!

SOURCE: Screen displays error code f3e2
This code means "BAKE/BROIL range over temperature"
Problem is in either temperature sensor or the control board. Check the temp sensor and wiring from it to the control board first (connector #3, contacts 8 and 10, violet wires) . At room temperature the temp sensor resistance should be around 1080 Ohms. Also check temp sensor for short to ground. If no problems found with the sensor - replace control board.
OBTW - for the broil problem - check the fuse inline with the broil element (continuity between Conn #2, wire 1, blue and conn #4, wire 3, red). It should read several ohms. Good luck!
