Whirlpool oven shuts off - Error Code F2

The oven will shut off when in use. It never reaches desired temperature. Occasionally Error code F2 (only two digits) comes up with constant beeping. Sometimes, rarely the code will be F3. Error code lists say F2 means oven temperature is too high. Not the problem, as it doesn't reach proper temperature. Both codes say Oven Sensor needs replaced. I have replaced it, twice. The problems persists. All sensors, including original one, read correct OHMS. What do I look at nexr?

The "F2" error code for this oven means "one or more keys on the keypad are shorted". The correction is to replace the control panel because keypad does not come separate.
The part is not available but if you call the number of that supplier I'm sure they may find the part for you.
Here is the info.

    Thanks for the response. Is there a way to check the control board? Especially some instructions I can follow. I hate to pay $250 to $300 on a hunch.

    I under stand that. There is nothing else it could be but the control board. I don't have any test information since the service centers use a proprietary diagnostic machine. You can order the part and if you feel it doesn't correct the problem the part has a 365 day, any reason any part return policy so you can't go wrong either way. Keep me posted! I am always here.

SOURCE: error codes F2 and F3

Two months ago I asked fixya about a g.e. oven with a f3 code. that evening a reply suggested I replace the oven sensor. I took the old one to the parts place, told the repairman about the code,and he told me the sensor WAS the problem. I replaced it, and WOW it fixed it! Today it faulted out again. I will pull it again and check it. It was installed correctly.The problem for a f3 fault IS the sensor.

SOURCE: f3 code

HI, You will need to check the oven sensor wires that link the actual sensor to the main control board. Make sure that the contacts are connected properly, and not loose, or corroded. If all the wiring checks out, test the sensor for the correct resistance readings.(you will need a multimeter for this test)

The most common oven sensor should be approximately, 1100 ohms when at room temperature. The others may be close to as follows:

100°F - 1143 ohms
200°F - 1350 ohms
300°F - 1553 ohms
350°F - 1654 ohms
400°F - 1753 ohms
500°F - 1949 ohms

If the sensor test is adequate, and the wiring is Ok at the control, this will lead to a failed control board. replace the control in this case.

SOURCE: f3 error (sensor replaced) kenmore stove Oven

Hi
Thanks for using FixYa. Error F3 in your range/oven means oven temperature sensor circuit failure. To resolve this issue you'll have to check the oven temp. sensor circuit if the reading is more then 1100ohms then check the wire harness connecting the control & sensor (as you have already replaced the sensor) however, if the rating is fine then it is the Electronic Range Control (ERC) that has gone bad & should be replaced. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
Thanks Rylee

91136669891 HAS ERROR CODE F2 F3


Are you sure about this error? The 91136669891 was made by Whirlpool for the Kenmore line. The 4 character codes for these ranges are F# E# (not two Fs).

Depending on which error you are actually have see below.

If the code includes F3 then you have a problem with the oven temperature sensor (F3 E2 would be temperature too high). You need to replace the sensor. Sears Parts Direct has the sensor for $74.12: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Kenmore-Parts/Range-Parts/WB21X5301/0022/364/Model-91136669891/0582/0124250?keySuffixId=NA&pathTaken=partSearch&pathRender=modelComponent&documentCompId=P9040087&diagramPageId=00005&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=91136669891&subCompDesc=Body&brandDesc=KENMORE&modelDesc=30 . The complete diagram of the oven parts is available here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Range-Parts/Model-91136669891/0582/0124250/P9040087/00005?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= . The sensor is part 253.

If the code includes F2, then double check the second code. Whirlpool has no F2 E3 error that I know of. However, F2 errors tend to be a problem with the keypad. Check the wiring connection between the keypad and the control. This should be firm. Then press Cancel. If the error persists, you need to replace the keypad. See http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Range-Parts/Model-91136669891/0582/0124250/P9040087/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= for the parts diagram and prices.

I hope this helps.

F3 error code when warming up - the unit does one of two things 1) stops before reaching desired temp - 2) reaches the desired temp and then shuts off


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F3 error code indicates a open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you wan to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

F2 - E6 Cancel key drive line open 1. Check keypad connector for firm connection (keypad connects to control board).

When I turn the GE oven on sometimes it works fine other times it will shut off. When it shuts off it will give the F2 or F3 error sign.Can you please tell me what this means? Thanks


Hi, the F2 Error code means the oven has detected an excess temperature condition. Most often this is due to a bad temperature sensor - the sensor costs about $75 from an online repair site.
The "F3" error code means the oven sensor is open, I suggest you flip breaker off then back, on Re check for error, if OK fine if not turn back off and fix or call for service man...

My ge xl44 gas range, installed in 2000, turns off and flashes an f2 code occasionally. Can you give me the reason?


F2 means: For an unknown reason, the oven temperature has exceeded a preset threshold.

G.E. recommends you try this:

Sometimes shutting off the circuit breaker that the range or oven is connected to for 30 seconds will clear the fault, error or function code, however there are some cases when further service may be required. If you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737

I have a Whirlpool Oven RBS305PDS16 is having an error code E1 F2 and then it shuts off. What could be wrong?


E1 F2 means bad connection between touch pad and control board. if connections are ok it may require parts. may get very expensive.
