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!

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!

I have Whirlpool Schott Ceran Accubake range. Got and F3E2 code while oven was in self-cleaning mode. What does this mean?


Hi.

F3 E2 is a temperature runaway error. It means that the control board detected that the oven is too hot. If there is no effective overheating the error occurs because the temperature sensor is shorted.

here the explanation from manual:

F3 E2 : Oven too hot, over heating

Solution:
Test and replace oven temperature sensor.

Before replacement the temperature sensor must be tested. A good sensor will read about 1080 Ohms at room temperature. If the sensor is shorted will only read a couple of Ohms or zero.

If the sensor is good the problem can be the control board, wiring to temperature sensor, or in sporadic cases an heating element that stays always on because of a wiring contact. The last case is quite uncommon.

The most common fault is a defective temperature sensor. The sensor is a probe located inside the oven cavity. The sensor is attached to a two wires connector and held by one or two screws. Disconnect power. Remove the sensor. Undo connector and read Ohms at connector. If there is low impedance replace the probe.

Here a tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most aplliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

Regards.

"F3E2 warming drawer sensor" has


Hello,

What you need to do is find the wiring diagram for that oven,typically its in a envelope inside one of the side panels with the warming drawer pulled out and look and see where the wires for the warming drawer sensor goes onto the control board and measure their at that plug on the board for between 1060-1100 ohms of resistiance ,if 1060-1100 ohms is their on that plug at the board the board is going to be the problem..if their it is much higher or lower the problem is going in the wiring from the sensor to the board..this is assuming the new sensor measures bewteen 1060-1100 ohms as the old one did when checking it??

Sounds like you have a short in one of your burner switches that may have also taken out your main control. Does your oven work normally? Those error codes are related to 1] control board and 2] oven over temp, so the burner issue is unrelated except in that it may have surged the control.

you can view the switches by removing the rear panel(if this is a freestanding range) and from the description you will likely see the shorted component with some black marks around it. Please unplug the range first,as these wires are live even when all burners are off
