Question about Whirlpool SB160PEE Gas Single Oven
The led of the door locking lights up. I cannot do anything with the oven. The door is still unlocked. I allready switched the tension off, but that didn't work.
The customer service told me that a service technician has to come to unlock the door= to rerest the oven.
Does someone knows how to do that?

First check to see if you activated the "child lock-out". See your manual to deactivate.
You could also try unplugging the unit, or trip the circuit breaker in your home which supplies power to the oven. Wait 5 minutes and turn power back on. This will reset the controls.

You will have to replace the defective door latch switch. It is sending a false signal. Check with a Whirlpool authorized repair shop. Some of these were on a recall list.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Gold oven is locked
Had to switch it off at the breaker, wait for it to cool down, and switch the breaker back on. Then it unlocked. In the meantime, however, our french fries were completely incinerated, and the house filled with smoke.

The F3 E2 error code indicates that the electronic oven control board in the range senses an over-temperature condition in the oven.
This can be caused by a failed temperature sensor probe, a wiring problem between the sensor and the control board, or a failed electronic oven control board.
If the oven is apparently not overheating when this error code appears, then your likely failure is the temperature sensor probe.
If the oven is overheating, then you likely have a failed electronic oven control board due to a stuck relay not cycling the oven heating element off properly.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

This is what worked for me:
1) hold down the "Select" button for 5 seconds till the display starts flashing
2) use the right hand dial to set the hour
3) press the "Select" button
4) use the right hand dial to set the minutes
5) press the "Select" button

Hello Steven Krenz - Was the unit in self-clean mode? Try pressing and holding the "Clear/Off" button to stop any operation of the EOC. Do this at the same time while pushing and hold the light switch to the left of the door lock. Usually this will trick the oven into unlocking the door. If it is ineffective, try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and redo the steps. If door continues to maintain locked while open, the unit may possibly have a faulty door latch or a communication problem with the EOC. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.
