If you replaced an element, you may have made an error in replacing it. Here is a post: (on a service call i ran across this same range with the same problem and remembering from a s/c about a year ago i had purchased the (316441801) dual element switch .. It wasn't in a box but looked the same . so i installed the switch .. and to my surprise f20 popped up as soon as I turned on the oven . This code also appeared when i removed and isolated the wire's ( i.e. no switch at all ) I spent the next 30 minutes checking wiring , so here's the reason this happens . It is a communication error code . One of the Dual elements has a (316441801) and the other has (316441804) switch . The last number is different . I found that one switch acts as a ground and the other as a positive. I'm not quite sure as to why its attached to the EOC . So when changing out one of the dual switches look at the sticker on the switch as it has the part number on it . Hope this helps and saves someone from buying the EOC as that is most likely not the problem

SOURCE: I have a frigidaire m/n PLES389ECD and the burners

The ESEC system and the electronic oven control ain't communicating. Check the wiring connections between the oven control and the esec controls. The thang is designed to lockout the top burners while the self clean feature is in use. If you failed to reconnect that connection which feeds back to the ESEC I imagine nothing does work. LOL. here's a video which shows how it works and I have the manual loaded on Gdocs fo you.

Electronic Relay Control


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 reconnect.

F20 error code on Frigidare electric range


Hello rjshomesnj - Typically error code E20 indicates that the range has detected a communication failure between EOC (electronic oven control) and ESEC system (electronic service element control). In other words, the range has an issue with the switch for the burner. I will personally recommend contacting a certified technician to move forward accurately and to assist with the repairs. You can often locate qualified servicers by visiting the manufacturer website.

I was cleaning my self cleaning whirlpool accubake oven and a F1 and E7 code appeared. I have just bought my house and the prior owner did not leave any manuals. Help please


Most Whirlpool appliance manuals are available from Whirlpool: http://www.whirlpool.com/owners-center/owners-center-homepage.content.html . You will need the model number from the oven. This should be located behind the oven storage drawer on the rim. It will usually be on the left for a range and on the right for a wall oven. On rare models the plaque with the model number will be behind the door. If you add a comment with the model number, I'll try to post a direct link to the manual.

Are you sure about the error code? F1 and E7 aren't in my code books. I have an F7 and E1 code that indicates a short between the door switch or latch switch and the chassis or ground. (For double ovens, there are two of the switches for each door. The code doesn't specify which oven has a bad switch.) The F5 E7 error is a door latch that will not unlock. An F3 E7 error indicates that the warming drawer sensor has shorted out.

For the F3 E7 error, simply replace the sensor. For the other two errors, the solution depends on the door lock state. You start by unplugging the oven and checking all the wires and their connectors. See http://www.appliancepartspros.com/repairtips/repairtips_appliance+fault+codes.aspx#Whirlpool%20Range%20/%20Stove%20/%20Oven%20Fault%20Codes for the complete set of steps. If the wires/connectors are okay, you probably need to replace one of the door switches if the oven door was locked when the error occurred. If it wasn't locked, then you can check the voltage to the various switches and replace any that are bad. If it isn't a switch, then it is the control that has failed and must be replaced.

I hope this helps.

When I try to set a temperature, F9 appears. I have tried to turn off power by flipping circuit breaker. The power was off and I set a temp, then turned it off and F9 appeared again with "lock." Any...


The most common cause of a F9 error code is a problem with the door latch circuit. There could be a pinched wire for the circuit causing a short or the door latch motor is defective. Sometimes a problem with the ERC can cause this error to appear. Possible problems can very slightly from manufacturer for this error code but almost all use the F9 error code for the oven door lock.

Electric Diagram for Kenmore Model 790


Has the oven run out of control or gotten too hot? The 790 series is made by Frigidaire and those fault codes are F0 to F8. F2 indicates the temperature sensor is reading too hot. Now with the double oven models, some manufactures add an extra digit to the fault codes to indicate which oven created the fault.

Your most likely fix is to replace the temperature sensor. The most probable locations for the wiring diagram is taped inside the bottom drawer, on the back or under side of the oven, or behind one of the panels on the back of the oven. This might tell you the room temperature resistance for the temperature sensor so you can test it with an ohmmeter and be sure that it is faulty. Try Appliance Parts Pros for replacement sensors.

Electric oven model 790.47892601


F7-E1 - Common Switch Wire Is Defective - This error occurs when common wire to latch switch and door switch is shorted.
Check all connections at control board and at the latch switch and door switch.
If connections are ok, then check individual switches as outlined for the F5 error code.
