Good Afternoon C, error code F20 does indicate part
replacement on the ESEC-UIB (User Interface Control), located behind the console on
the side of the actual display. I would recommend, however, running a quick
test to ensure that this is not a false error code. You do this by resetting
your oven by flipping the breaker or unplugging the unit for approximately ten
minutes. If resetting the unit does not correct the issue, please reach out to
an expert technician to ensure the appropriate replacement part is ordered and
is installed correctly to prevent future issues. I hope this information helps
to some degree - thanks for your question, and please do not hesitate to

Here a list of Whirpool oven fault codes. The codes had been collected from different service manuals. This was a memo that I wrote for my own use. I think this can be useful to owners and technicians.
WHIRLPOOL - most models Range/Stove and Oven Fault Codes, Common error codes.
F1 - Analog control board Failure Disconnect for one minute - if error comes back, replace control board F1 - Shorted control keypad Replace keypad F3 - Oven temperature sensor open Replace oven temperature probe F2 - Oven temperature sensor shorted Replace oven temperature probe F3 - Oven too hot Replace oven temperature probe F3 - Clean temperature too hot Replace oven probe F5 - Door latch switch fault Test and replace the door switch.
Whirlpool with 4 Digit Failure Code:
F1 - E1 - Electronic control (flip flop) Replace control board F2 - E0 - Shorted control keypad Replace keypad F3 - E0 - Oven temperature probe open Replace temperature probe F3 - E1 - Oven temperature probe shorted Replace temperature probe F3 - E2 - Oven temp too high Replace temperature probe F3 - E3 - Clean temp too hot Replace temp. probe F5 - E0 - Check door latch F5 - E1 - Check door latch Replace switch if defective
WHIRLPOOL Polara models 5 digit codes:
F1 F0 - EEPROM communication error Replace ERC F1 E1 - EEPROM checksum error Replace ERC F1 E2:7 - UL A/D errors Replace ERC F1 E4:2 - Model ID error Reinsert keytail. F1 E6:0 - Latch signal mismatch error Replace ERC F2 E0:4 - Shorted key error Replace keypad assembly F2 E1:3 Keytail unplugged reinsert the keytail F3 E0:5 Top oven sensor open Test and replace top probe. F3 E1:6 Top oven shorted Test and replace temp probe F3 E2:9 Bake range over temperature Test and replace temp probe F3 E3:8 Clean range over temperature Test and replace temp probe. F3 E4:10 Bottom oven sensor open Test and replace temp probe F3 E:15 Bottom oven sensor shorted Test and replace temp probe F5 E0:14 Door switch errot Test and eventually replace door lock switch F5 E1:16 Door latch not operating Test and eventually replace door latch F8 E0:17 Refrigeration error Test the cooling module. PF Power failure - Does not indicate a fault. PF occurs when power is disconnected.
WHIRLPOOL Models SF3, 30'' and 24"
F2 - Oven temperature above specifications Check 8-pin connector from temp. probe to Electronic Oven Control F3 - Open oven temperature probe failure Check wiring, replace oven probe if necessary F4 - Shorted oven temperature sensor failure Check wiring harness, replace oven temperature probe if necessary F5 - Push button stuck or faulty Check for binding of pushbuttons and control panel glass. If OK, replace touch panel F6 - Electronic control logic error (timing) Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC) F7 - Electronic control logic error (lock motor) Replace ERC. F8 - Electronic control logic error Replace ERC.
Both of these errors mean that your control board thinks that your oven
sensor is shorted. This is either a bad oven sensor or a bad display
relay control board. You can't test the board but you can test the
Open the door and remove the 3-4" long thin metal rod attached
to the back wall. There are 2 screws holding the sensor on that you can
remove and then pull the sensor forward until you can disconnect it.
WIth a multimeter, check the resistance of the sensor at room
temperature and it should be about 1080 ohms. If it's not, replace the
sensor, otherwise you need to replace your relay board.
The Electronic Range Control (ERC) senses the oven temperature by the
resistance of the oven temperature sensor. As the temperature goes up
the resistance of the sensor increases and the ERC converts the
resistance to degrees. Sometimes the sensor fails and gives high
or low resistance readings. Sometimes the ERC fails and calculates the
temperature wrong. Sometimes a relay on the ERC sticks and the
temperature goes too high. Sometimes there is a bad connection between
the sensor and the ERC causing high resistance and the ERC thinks the
temperature has gone too high.
Hi, i found three all same series... If it's occasional I'd leave it 'till was always on? Anyway ..... F2 - E0 Shorted keypad Replace Electronic Range Control/Clock (ERC) OR.... F2 Oven temperature sensor shorted Replace oven temperature sensor OR F2 Temperature runaway detected (Bake/Broil: 600 - 700 F; Clean: 930 - 1000 degrees F). Sounds alarm and resets to non-cook mode. Check relay board for stuck contacts. Check oven temperature sensor for normal room temperature resistance (1085-1097 ohms at 75 degrees F). Check sensor wiring connectors for a loose or high resistance connection. Check electronic range control (also called clock or ERC) functions Replace relay board if necessary. Replace oven temperature sensor if other components check normal. If failure repeats, replace electronic range control (also called clock or ERC)
This indicates the keypad or ERC electronic range control has failed.
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).
Thanks for using FixYa. F10 error indicates that the control board (ERC) has gone bad and the electronic range control (ERC) should be replaced to resolve the issue. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Hello there: any time you recieve the f-1 and sometimes a f-o error with the beeping this is from the electronic range controle board or erc for short and this means that that part has fgailed and needs to be replaced if you go to repair clinic.com you can look up you oven model number and get parts from there or if you have a appliance repair center in your home town give them a call and tell them the ovens model number and tell them you need a erc or electronic range controle board ok? Hope this helps Best regards Michael

Please use the chart to determine which stove you have. You will have to look at the model number. The first 3 numbers will be the series on the chart. In most cases an F1 error would require replacment of the electronic control. This part is commonly refered to as an EOC or ERC. However this type of repair is usually reserved for repair specialists.
