I have a double oven by whirlpool. Brand new in new house purchased at auction. Oven never used before.
Used it and worked fine but it is beeping and flashing a code. E1 in the screen indicating the upper oven and F5 and F3 in the center of the screen where the time normally displays.
Nothing seems to clear this. every 20 minutes or so it goes off with a quick 5 beeps. Pushing the timer cancel button will eventually get the beeping to stop and the time to return but the code will eventually return.

Re: beeping driving me crazy
Ok, the first issue is the oven temp sensor. it is shorted. you will need to replace this device asap. Now, the second is is concerning the Self clean latch. it is not functioning and it is unable to be locked by the control(shorted). Use the procedure below to test this device.
1. If door latched:
1. Disconnect power from unit. 2. Check wires and connectors from control to door switch, then from door switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to step C. 3. Replace door switch. 4. Re-apply power. 5. Press and hold any key down for 1 minute to clear F5 failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.
2. If door not latched:
1. Disconnect power from unit. 2. Check wires and connectors from control to latch switch, then from latch switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to step C. 3. Repeat steps A and B for door switch.
3. Measure door switch (door open = switch open small low voltage terminals). Replace switch if defective. 4. Measure latch switch (unlatch = switch open, CAUTION - oven light contacts are closed). Replace switch if defective. 5. If corrections are made in any step, reconnect power to control. Press and hold any key for 1 minute to clear R failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct. 6. If failure remains, disconnect power and replace control.

I have a whirlpool stove and when I try to clean it after awhile it starts beeping and comes accross with E1 & F5 the oven when its to clean dosen't seem like its locking. How can I fix this problem. Ive missplaced my book somewhere and can't seem to find it. My timer and clock is digital. Can you help me solve this problem? Thanks!
can you look real close at the display, its possibel that the display has "dimmed" and unit is actually working, but just cannot read the display as to what its actually doing, in this case replaccingthe display board will correct your problem
I have an O'Keefe & Merritt double oven gas stove. The model
number is 72 7242 23. The upper oven is about the size of a large
microwave and sits above the range burners. The lower (full-size)
oven is below the burner unit and includes a broiler draw below it.
So, when you say, double oven, I wonder if you are just talking about
the main oven with broiler drawer (both of which are below the burner
Mine was a builder-supplied appliance in the new house we purchased in
1986. The upper oven has never performed very well. And,
yes the upper oven can only be used for baking.
I have an instruction manual for it, but it doesn't provide that much
information. Getting parts for it is extremely difficult, since
Tappan is no longer manufacturing this brand. (I've been trying
to locate a flat oven ignitor for the upper oven and can't seem to find
a replacement that's the same 6-1/3" length.) In the 1980s Tappan
apparently purchased O'Keefe & Merritt and marketed this brand for
several years. Models originally manufactured by O'Keefe
& Merritt in the 1930s-1950s are considered collectible antique
Your husband is correct, kind of. You should not try self clean again until you get the oven repaired. You have a temp sensor going out. I doubt that the oven actually got too hot, most likely the resistor in the sensor is failing as it heats up and giving a false temp reading.Since the lower oven was operating at the time, it is probably the sensor in the lower oven. Don't use it for baking until you get it repaired. It will go out completely and shut down both ovens. You should be able to get a new sensor for around $30 and they are not hard to replace.
The oven won't set your house on fire during clean mode if the cabinets were built with the correct air space and dimensions, but they do get very hot, about 800 degrees F. Most ovens give no trouble during the clean cycle, but if there is any weak components in the electronics system it will show up then. It will give you less trouble over time if you don't use the self clean mode and just manually clean it.
Woke up this morning and heard my smw272 built-in oven beeping.
Oh no! First the display (but at least the oven worked) now the
oven is beeping (fault signal according to manual) and the thing
is dead except for the microwave and warming bin. The only
way to turn off the incessant beeping--which was driving me crazy--was
to go outside to the fuse box and turn off the circuit to the
oven. Yeah, I stopped the beeping but now I'm at the mercy of the
unscrupulous service repairman--was quoted a flat fee to drive
out and a hefty hourly rate (i.e., "value added" service charge).
OUCH! Hey folks, please follow my simple advice if you want to
avoid making a big mistake: NO MORE THERMADORS. RUN--DON'T
WALK AWAY FROM THIS BRAND!!!
