Question about Ovens

1 Answer

Readout all of a sudden says E6 and F2 where we usually see the clock/timer/etc. What the heck is going on and how do I clear this so we can see the time display again?

The timer or clock readout display is now stuck on some weird codes or numbers and we can't clear it or have it go back to just showing the time/clock. What can I do to troubleshoot or is this some weird code telling us to clean the oven or what?

Yup Yup, been there. We had to replace the control board on ours. We are lucky enough to have a repair service tech in town that came by and diagnosed this (cheaply since he didn't really do anything), gave us the part number and where locally to order the new control board. Easiest way is to contact the manufacturer to order a new one. If its the exact same problem, the oven wont hold temperature, will start to heat up then gives the code. The board is very easy to replace, takes less than 30 minutes.

    Thanks Jim. So control board and control pad are the same thing right?

  • Jim Couk Jan 11, 2013

    Been a few years since I replaced mine, but I believe so. When you order the part, you get the circuit board and 2 face plates, one white, one black. If you research the error, you'll probably come up with heating element errors. Dont be fooled by the error name, we wound up replacing all 3 elements in our oven, didn't fix the error and cost about the same as just the control pad.

We repair these control boards frequently. The E6 F2 error is very common for whirlpool ovens and almost always is caused by the control board. It can be repaired quickly and reliably. www.fixyourboard.com

SOURCE: oven gives code E6 F2 on panel

The problem in our oven has cleared by itself. I did see the E6 F2 error message but for now, it's working fine. Considering the customer service was only able to help to the extent of reading the error code sheet the same as I was (the sheet is behind the touch pad) and seeing how limited the solutions were, we don't think we'll be buying another Whirlpool. I was pretty insulted when the girl a customer quality called to offer me part #8300453 at half cost of $164 providing I have a service guy look at the stove and call in the part. On top of that, the warrenty is 90 days and the part is on back order. Why would the part be on back order? A) they either did not make an ample supply for inventory, B) there are many ovens needing this part. For an oven to require parts after 2.5 yrs of service and 2 self cleanings tells me someone was sleeping with a cigar in their mouth in Quality Control. Or, learning what that meant.

Enjoy the day!

Related: F2 E6 on Whirlpool RBD305PDS14 double oven - blank display


Equipment is Whirlpool double oven RBD305PDS14 built-in.  After a very stormy summer 2007, I thought a power surge may have zapped the control board.  Problem initially presented on display as error & fault "E6 F2"; simply pressing "Timer Off" would usually clear this error & fault code.

However, some months later, the display would often go completely blank followed by the beep sequence "short-long-short-short-short" (Morse code: dit dah dit dit dit).  No error & fault code would appear.  Pressing any keypad oven control did not work at all in this condition.  When power was cycled at the breaker panel, the usual "PF" with clock display did not appear.

[TURN OVEN POWER OFF AT BREAKER!!!]

After following the excellent information on "how to remove the control panel" posted in this forum, I first tested the "control panel thermal fuse" (refer to the tech sheet that should be behind the control panel once it is removed).  It showed a closed circuit.

I turned my attention to the "flexible" keypad connector cable (error & fault code "E6 F2" is a keypad or keypad connector problem; again, refer to tech sheet).  The control panel has a board mounted female connector with two tabs that may be gently pulled upward to release the flexible cable.

I cleaned the flexible cable contact area (it seats into the board mounted female connector) carefully with a Q tip and some isopropyl alcohol.  I reinserted the flexible cable and gently pressed down on the two tabs (noted above) on the board mounted female connector.  VERY GENTLY tug on the flexible cable to insure it is gripped by the connector.

After all of this monkey business, I re-mounted the control panel display panel on the oven and restored power.  So far, so good.  After applying power, the "PF" with clock display always appears.  I am able to set the clock and press "Start".  Over functions normally.  The clock displays as normal and I no longer observe the problem I described above.

BTW, I noted the incoming 240V has transient suppression (no surge protection, however).

Our oven read a problem # E6 F2 what that's mean?


Hello,

The E6-F2 error code means that the control board thinks there is a problem with the cancel button on the touch pad. Sometimes its due to a loose connection from the ribbon cable on the touch pad. You can push cancel and clear it and if within 5 or under the error code returns the touchpad needs to be replaced. But first check/have the connection checked to make sure its tight. The way modern things work though is grand and Whirlpool say if after replacing touchpad the error code returns once again the clock/control board is what needs to be replaced.

Error code e6 f2


F2 - E6 Cancel key drive line open 1. Check keypad connector for firm connection (keypad connects to control board).
2. Press CANCEL. If error code returns after 60 seconds, replace keypad (also called touch pad or membrane switch). Some models incorporate keypad in to control board as one unit. In this case, replace control board (also called ERC or clock).

My oven model # wfg361lfb series : ry1912535 i put it on - it seemed to start up. suddenly the degrees started going down ... and now no buttons work (the clock still does) and it says F2 EO


Hello-  The code indicated-  F2 E0,  is an indicated fault in the touchpad, usually in one of the switches, but sometimes in the connection between them. Onsite diagnostics are required to see which component is affected. If fault does not clear after hitting cancel, then service is required. Solution is to replace touchpad.  Please acknowledge this post if helpful.  Have more info if needed- Thanks- Ed

Whirlpool code E6 F2


Hello ssuebe51
Welcome

Turn the power off to the oven.

Check the connection from the key pad to the clock.

If the connection is good then put back together.

Turn power back on and press the cancel button.

If the error code returns after 60 seconds then the keypad will have to be replaced.

Thank you huuum

Double oven will not work sometime


Mobley, F2-E6 code is cancel key drive line open. The tech sheet I have on this recommends reseating the keypad connector. It then states to press cancel. If the error comes back within 60 seconds replace the keypad....Catriver..post back.
