Oven clicks to self cleans or f3, the door locks and food burns

My oven switched to autoclean from the 350 degrees last week when I wanted to bake a casserole. Today I went to bake a chicken on 350 degrees and after turning it on I got an F3 code and the door locked. Both meals were burn to a crisp! .

The oven is a Whirlpool Accubake System (Electric) Super Capacity 465. Will I need to buy a new oven or can it be repared?

My family is getting sick of fast foods!

Replace the oven temperature sensor.
Take your model number to any appliance parts store for a replacement sensor.

Whirlpool super capacity 465


Seems the thermostat is malfunctioning...thus when baking at 500..thats quite high...it keeps getting hotter past that point to where the oven thinks its in self cleaning mode. Also seems like the problem because when it cools down your allowed to use it again. There is no way to test it with an ohmmeter. Just remove and replace.

    When baking my oven door is not locked is it supposed to be?and if so how do we lock it.


    The locking of the oven door is a safety feature used only during automatic self cleaning cycle, this is because temperatures during the self clean cycle can reach upwards of 600+ degrees creating a dangerous situation if the door was opened, it will remain locked after the self cleaning cycle is complete until the oven interior temperature is below 100 degrees. So no the door is not normally locked during the bake cycle. Good luck !

    How do I use the self cleaning functions - kitchenaid oven


    Hi,

    Please allow me to help you first with some background of self cleaning functions:

    Self-cleaning ovens use an approximately 900 degrees Fahrenheit (482 degrees Celsius) temperature cycle to burn off spills leftover from baking, without the use of any chemicals. A self-cleaning oven is designed with a mechanical interlock (patented in 1982) to keep the oven door locked and closed during and soon after the high-temperature cleaning cycle, which can be approximately three hours. The door stays locked to prevent burn injuries. You can open the oven door after the oven cools to approximately 600 F (315 C).

    If baking spills are not wiped up after baking, there may be some smoke during an oven cleaning cycle. It is a good idea to remove any pets from the area when running the oven's self-cleaning cycle. There have been reports of oven-heated Teflon-coated items releasing odorless fumes deadly to birds.
    Self-cleaning ovens have the added benefit of more insulation, which helps the energy efficiency for regular baking. This is similar in concept to an increased R-factor for home insulation.

    You will also save energy costs by using the self-cleaning cycle right after baking, to make use of the already partially heated oven.

    Please check this website mentioned bellow which would give you a detailed method of how to perform it:

    Hope this would help you .

    God Bless.

    Whirlpool Electric Oven RBS305 overheats while baking, locks door


    The technical manual for your range doesn't show an error code of E2 F2 but all of the F2 codes pertain to the touchpad of the range.
    Can you clear the E2 F3 by pressing the cancel button? If not, shut off the power to the range for a few minutes and see if the error code goes away. If the error code remains You should unplug the range from the wall and remove the back panel for the control area. Disconnect the ribbon between the touchpad and the electronic control, clean the end of it and reconnect it.
    If this doesn't repair the problem you will need to replace the touchpad on the range. The parts diagram lists two touchpads, they are part numbers 8273575- bisque, and 8272702- white.
    Good luck

    My rf367 range gets so hot during the self cleaning cycle that the top of the range is to hot to touch and the fan on my otr microwave comes on.


    Normal operation. If in doubt place a high temp theromoter on range top to see if it exceeds 600-900 degrees
    The basic idea is "burn baby, burn!" Self-cleaning ovens use an approximately 900 degrees Fahrenheit (482 degrees Celsius) temperature cycle to burn off spills leftover from baking, without the use of any chemicals. A self-cleaning oven is designed with a mechanical interlock (patented in 1982) to keep the oven door locked and closed during and soon after the high-temperature cleaning cycle, which can be approximately three hours. The door stays locked to prevent burn injuries. You can open the oven door after the oven cools to approximately 600 F (315 C).

    Whirlpool oven issue


    Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
