Re: error flashing F5

We had a similar problem where F5 was flashing but the burners actually continued to work. It turns out that this was related to moisture (the problem typically happened when boiling water). Adding a strip of aluminum tape inside the back panel seems to have solved the problem (fingers crossed).

My Hotpoint RB757EH 5BB electric range started a high pitch beep with the error "Bad Line" flashing on the screen.

90 % of Hotpoint range problems will be a loose or broken wire either at terminal block were cord hooks up. check wires from block to stove the wire running up to elements and control board
also check were range plugs into wall it may be loose and not getting good return. burners will work because there is no electronics involved just a infinite switch and coil burner
oven has a computer board for operation.
if you do not find the problem there then change control board
defective relay or computer chip

Re: Jenn Air #svd48600b Gas Stove Top works... Oven and Broiler not working(Elec.) I replaced Electronic oven control assy...It works correctly, but never gets Hot!! Any ideas??

Having a problem with the stove on this Jenn Air svd48600b.
Often with the oven warms up to 350F it starts beeping at and shuts off.
It flashes either just an FC error code, or FC and F5.

It is often possible to get the oven to work again if you wait 10-15min and cycle the power.

I imagine something is wrong with a heat sensor? The temperature sensor responsible for displaying temperature on the control panel seems fine though.

One other detail, even when the oven doesn't shut off at hot temperatures, the fan comes on (at around 220F) and stays on for over an hour after the oven is turned off.

Does anyone know if there is a different temperature sensor that might cause this? Is there a specific electronics board that may be leading to this problem.
when it heats up.

Hello sfgelectric,

You said, your broiler and oven won't work. That you set bake and it beeps and the bake light flashes but oven wont light.

Does the display flash any error codes, or just the bake light?

Fault codes
1. BAKE or LOCK may flash rapidly in the display to alert you if there is an error
or a problem. If BAKE or LOCK appear in the display, press the CANCEL pad.
2.If BAKE or LOCK continue to flash, disconnect power to the appliance.
3.Wait a few minutes, and then reconnect power. If the flashing still continues,
disconnect power to the appliance and call an authorized servicer.
4.If the oven is heavily soiled, excessive flareups may result in a fault code during
cleaning. Press the CANCEL pad and allow the oven to cool completely, wipe out
excess soil, then reset

For most concerns, try these first.
Check if oven controls have been properly set.
Check to be sure plug is securely inserted into receptacle.
Check or re-set circuit breaker. Check or replace fuse.
Check power supply

I'll check the repair manual to see what I can find.
Let me know how it goes.
Perhaps this will fix a glitch.

GE Profile Gas Range oven turns off

I just read that the electronic panel malfunctions due to rear burner use. Now, I know that mine gets REALLY HOT in between the back burners (where the heat exhaust for the oven is) whenever I bake/broil. I am guessing that it can cause the same malfunction fromt he oven, as with the backburners. Whenever I use both back burners, mine shows F7 E6, too. Unplugging it for the night or just waiting til the beeping stops and then clearing it works... until I cook again. I read that the replacement part for the control panel is about $300 and another $200, more or less, to install it! I think this is more like a recall or manufacturer's problem. I have read plenty of complaints and I think GE needs to make a call to fix them!!

Error code E1 -F5- Broil element comes on and wont shut off

if it is a whirlpool, kitchen aid or kenmore by whirlpool you need to check the self clean latch asembly found on the rear of the unit. check the micro switches with an ohm meter. always remember to unplug the oven before you test any thing or replace parts. not sure why the broil wouldnt shut off. but the f5 error is definatly related to the door latch.
