Here a list of Whirpool oven fault codes. The codes had been collected from different service manuals. This was a memo that I wrote for my own use. I think this can be useful to owners and technicians.
WHIRLPOOL - most models Range/Stove and Oven Fault Codes, Common error codes.
F1 - Analog control board Failure Disconnect for one minute - if error comes back, replace control board F1 - Shorted control keypad Replace keypad F3 - Oven temperature sensor open Replace oven temperature probe F2 - Oven temperature sensor shorted Replace oven temperature probe F3 - Oven too hot Replace oven temperature probe F3 - Clean temperature too hot Replace oven probe F5 - Door latch switch fault Test and replace the door switch.
Whirlpool with 4 Digit Failure Code:
F1 - E1 - Electronic control (flip flop) Replace control board F2 - E0 - Shorted control keypad Replace keypad F3 - E0 - Oven temperature probe open Replace temperature probe F3 - E1 - Oven temperature probe shorted Replace temperature probe F3 - E2 - Oven temp too high Replace temperature probe F3 - E3 - Clean temp too hot Replace temp. probe F5 - E0 - Check door latch F5 - E1 - Check door latch Replace switch if defective
WHIRLPOOL Polara models 5 digit codes:
F1 F0 - EEPROM communication error Replace ERC F1 E1 - EEPROM checksum error Replace ERC F1 E2:7 - UL A/D errors Replace ERC F1 E4:2 - Model ID error Reinsert keytail. F1 E6:0 - Latch signal mismatch error Replace ERC F2 E0:4 - Shorted key error Replace keypad assembly F2 E1:3 Keytail unplugged reinsert the keytail F3 E0:5 Top oven sensor open Test and replace top probe. F3 E1:6 Top oven shorted Test and replace temp probe F3 E2:9 Bake range over temperature Test and replace temp probe F3 E3:8 Clean range over temperature Test and replace temp probe. F3 E4:10 Bottom oven sensor open Test and replace temp probe F3 E:15 Bottom oven sensor shorted Test and replace temp probe F5 E0:14 Door switch errot Test and eventually replace door lock switch F5 E1:16 Door latch not operating Test and eventually replace door latch F8 E0:17 Refrigeration error Test the cooling module. PF Power failure - Does not indicate a fault. PF occurs when power is disconnected.
WHIRLPOOL Models SF3, 30'' and 24"
F2 - Oven temperature above specifications Check 8-pin connector from temp. probe to Electronic Oven Control F3 - Open oven temperature probe failure Check wiring, replace oven probe if necessary F4 - Shorted oven temperature sensor failure Check wiring harness, replace oven temperature probe if necessary F5 - Push button stuck or faulty Check for binding of pushbuttons and control panel glass. If OK, replace touch panel F6 - Electronic control logic error (timing) Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC) F7 - Electronic control logic error (lock motor) Replace ERC. F8 - Electronic control logic error Replace ERC.
Hello Herb Reinhart - If the range previously displayed DR and now showing F11, it typically indicates that the unit has detected a shorted keypad. Since you have already try resetting the unit by unplugging it and issue persists, I would recommend contacting a professional to proceed further. Most likely the EOC on the range will need replacing.
Depending on manufacturer and model, PF can mean a number of things. On my stove, PF simply indicates "Power Fail" Yours may, too. You can clear this generally by updating the clock display. To verify that PF does indeed mean power fail for your stove, simply shut off the power for the cicuit than supplies the stove. This can be either circuit breaker or fuses. Turn the power back on after 5 or more seconds and if it displays PF again, you know it means power fail.
Otherwise, please provide the manufacturer and model of you stove for an answer.
The same thing happened to me about a week ago. I was preheating our electric oven, heard a very loud bang/pop. Checked and the oven had PF (power failure) I went downstairs and the breaker was tripped. Came back upstairs and to look at stove, the burners are working fine so I continued to preheat oven after a half an hour the oven was only slightly warm. Did you ever find out what was wrong?
Hello, F11 is definitely a key stuck failure and I didn't require any parts to fix this. The
cause of the problem is an over abundant use of double sided tape at
the factory. I suspect that either heat or continued use of certain
buttons causes the glue to weep into the button/contact pad causing the
button to stick to the contact. On powering up our range showed PF and
if you waited 10-15 secs without touching any keys F11 would display
and and there was continuous beeping. I verified this was the case by
removing the upper rear panel of the stove and disconnecting the keypad
connector from the upper left of the lockout board. Then on powering up
our range simply sat there showing PF. Of course you can't get past
this with the keyboard disconnected anyway. The fix--- to make
repair easier I removed the glass panel to which the keypad is stuck
from the range. Pull off the burner knobs and you will find plastic
nuts holding the glass panel to the metal housing. Remove the plastic
nuts (make sure you let the keyboard connector go first by pulling the
connector lock -small tabs on either side of the keyboard ribbon -
towards you about 1/8". The ribbon cable will then slide right out.)
Use a razor blade to gently work your way around the plastic trim bezel
and remove the bezel. The keypad actually consists of three plastic
sheets sandwiched together. You only need to remove the top 2 layers.
Layer 1 is the printed keypad and layer 2 is the contact pad. You
have to be careful in all this or you may crease or damage a panel. I
started the edge with a razor blade and then stuck in the edge of a
spatula. The idea is not to slide the spatula in but rather to insert
it a small amount and lift. Slide it in a little more and lift. Just
have a little patience and don't simply try and slide the spatula in or
you may scrape the keypad and/or contact pad. While I suppose the more
AR of us would then have to clean all the double sided tape off I
simply cleaned up the keypads and matching contact pads. I stuck the
whole thing back together and reattached the keyboard ribbon cable
(hold it in place while pushing in the cable lock mentioned above. If
you aren't too squeamish you can test the keypad while you have
everything apart as follows: Connect the contact pad (this is the part
with the ribbon cable attached) to the lockout board. Power up the
stove. At PF touch one of the keypads to the stop/cancel contact pad.
The PF should be cleared and you should be able to operate the oven by
touching one of the keypads to appropriate contact pads.
Hi. your assessment is correct. when you have normal operations with the stove top and the control panel is blank or non operational, this will confirm either a wiring harness issue or a dead control circuit board. The wiring harness can sometimes become lose or the connectors can become corroded but, in this issue, i am sure its the ECB(electroninc control board). In this case, you will have to replace the board it self.
