Re: my stove

This indicates that the control coolinf fan is not working correctly so the safety thermostat cuts out the cooker until the surface area cooles down, this could be caused by a faulty fan motor of a faulty cut in thermostat Regards, Engineer

Hi I am getting an EO-F2 display on my stove Could you please tell me what this code signifies is the problem? Thank you Kurt

Error F2-E0 error means a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the sensor is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue start by checking the oven temp. sensor for 1100 ohms, if the rating is more then that then check the control and door switch and replace the part that is bad. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

I can't find my model number on my Sears Kenmore Gas stove. Several times now the stove has beeped then kicked out with EO and F2 showing in the clock area. The stove was bought in 2000 or 1999. Can you...


The tag with the model number is usually located on the rail that is visible with the lower drawer open.

The code you are getting is an indication that the oven got too hot or the control thinks the oven got too hot. It is usually do to one of two parts that have failed.

If the oven did not get too hot and you got the failure code, then the sensor would be bad.

If the oven did get too hot then the ERC (electronic range control) is bad.

Whirlpool range model GY398LXPB00 oven does not work

Turned out there was a short in one of the wires connected to the bottom element on the oven. After fixing that, I got a EO-F2 error that the repairman could not get rid of by pressing start. After hours on line and at this site I remembered that you had to do something after the power was interrupted. I came home and looked again and found you need to unplug the stove for 5 min before resetting the clock. I did this and it fixed everything. The repairman left telling me the control panel needed to replaced to the tune of about $600!

This shows you have to be informed or you can be taken advantage of. Thanks FixYa.

Whirlpool Gold Range Error code EO F2

On this website: , it shows all of the codes for the Whirlpool errors. Based on the remarks, if it shows a "4 digit failure code" it is "Shorted keypad"
"Replace Electronic Range Control/Clock (ERC)"

But verify this as I am not an appliance repair specialist. I am a computer nerd who just knows how to find information. I am actually trying to figure out an answer to my own problem with my Whirlpool Gold Accubake.
