Question about KitchenAid KERC506HBS Electric Kitchen Range
E-mailed you and found out that we had a Canadian made Kitchen Aid Stove. Repair man replaced fuse and the oven now heats on both top and bottom elements.
However, NOW when you turn the oven on i.e. 400/350 degrees and the oven door is closed it goes into the cleaning mode. (Which is the mode that the oven was in when the fuse blew. Fuse blew during cleaning, which we were not aware of, but then after that the oven would not work.)
When oven door is left ajar it will not go into clean mode.
When the oven locks a code comes up on the top of the stove that reads: F3:E2. What does this mean???
Should we put oven back into cleaning mode? In my opinion its like the fuse blew in the middle of the cleaning cycle and now the oven thinks it should be cleaning.
Please, please help. Thank you in advance.
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.
