Whirlpool Gas Range Model GW395LEPB

Hi there,
I just burnt a cake that I make regularly and needs 1 hour in the oven at 350 degrees, it burnt after 30 minutes! Something is very wrong. It also shut itself off and showed an error message with a F in it but I'm not sure which number came after it! I also have a common problem with this range that when I preheat it, some of the time after the 10 mins or so of preheating it will show it is on but it won't have heated up at all. Are these two separate problems or could they be related. I read on another posting that my first problem could be the oven tempature sensor, does that sound right? Could there be something else that needs repair too? Any help would be greatly appreciated - tnx:)

it means bake range over temperature.

have a technician check out the oven temp sensor. you may have a short in wiring or it may need to be replaced.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Super Capacity 465 Electric Range not heating properly.

Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:"

  • When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

    You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

    If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

  • When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly.

    If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective.

    Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details.

    Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat.

    If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

The first thing you will need to do is to verify that you have 230 volts at the outlet. Chances are pretty good that the unit popped one of the double pole breakers. Check the breaker and reset it if you find that you only have 120 volts at the outlet. If after finding that you have only 120 volts and you've reset the breaker then the problem would lie with the breaker needing replacement. If however you have full 230 volts available at the outlet then additional troubleshooting would be needed. Hope this helps... Bill

Whirlpool SF36 Gas Oven - F3 F2 ERROR above 350 degrees


Unplug the range.
The oven temperature sensor has failed and must be replaced.
Remove the racks. Remove the temperature sensor located up high on the back wall of the oven.
It is a short thin round piece of metal.

Oven temperature does not get hot enough.


Hi, It sounds like the ignitor might be getting weak and opening the gas valve conditantly. Try setting a temperature and watch to see the ignitor glow. The flame should ignite within 30-45 seconds. If the flame ignites to heat rith away, it should get up to temp before shutting down.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further with this issue.

Thanks
Vic

Temp on oven is not correct


Good Evening.


I would make sure that the conversion kit was the correct kit for your stove. Also, if it is not heating properly I would call the gas company and tell them the conversion did not work and they need to double check their work (at no charge). If everything is in order proceed to the next step below.


You can try removing the Oven Temp control. There is an adjustment on the knob which will vary the temp + or - 75 degrees F or so.

Procedure: Preheat your oven for 350 degrees F. Give it a good 1/2 hour to 45 minutes and then pull the knob off (usually held on with a set screw) You will need a thermometer that will go up to 500 degrees (I use an electronic one but you can use any kind as long as it is within the ovens temp range. If the oven is underheating simply turn the oven control stem to a higher setting, say a 50 degree incrament. Wait another 1/2 hour and measure temp inside oven. Keep in mind when you open the oven door it affects recovery time, etc so 30 minutes between a measurement and adjustment should suffice. Once you have adjusted the temp control to your target temp of 350 degrees look on the back of the knob and see if there is a stop adjustment. There is a chance the temp control knob could be setup differently but the same philiosphy/procedure will be similar.- the adjustment could be on the stem itself instead of the knob.

Also keep in mind that the oven temp will fluctuate from high to low as it tries to adjust to the temp it is set at. That is why it is very important to give the oven time to cycle low to high when you incrament the temp control. Hope this helps and good luck! Gary

Oven takes a long time to preheat


You don't list a full model number or how old this range is, or how long / how often you have this problem, but generally it sounds like the oven ignitor is not quite drawing enough amps to allow the gas valve to open regularly. It could be a low voltage related issue, but most likely is a failing oven ignitor. ( WB2X9154)
