F6E1 WHIRLPOOL OVEN CODE


what is the model #? sounds like a fused relay on the control board, or an element that is grounded to the frame. call a tech on this one, 240V appliances are not to be trifled with!

The broiler element comes on by itself when the power is on--it will not turn off unless I turn the power off at the breaker. The bottom element does not come on at all. I get no codes on the display


You have a bad broil-element relay on the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) - the contacts have welded shut (closed). You will need to replace the EOC.

Whirlpool Range model RF386PXGQ2 broiler won't shut off


Hi.

If the element does not turn off, possible faults are:

Shorted temperature probe.
Test temperature probe reading impedance. If impedance is zero or lower than 0.500 Ohms, the the probe is shorted. A good probe reads about 1KOhms.

Contact at element. A contact in element wiring harness may cause the element to stay on. Do continuity test between ground and element and on wiring harness.

Defective control module.
If problem is none of the above, then it is the oven electronic control(ERC). The ERC can be tested reading voltages.

Testing must be done by a trained technician.

Is the upper element supposed to heat up when roasting or baking?


Normally, the upper element is the broiler and isn't active during baking. If it was, it could easily burn the tops of baked goods.
It may well turn on during the self-cleaning cycle if so equipped since the temperatures required for the special coating to become active is ~ 900 degrees F and can't be reached by a single element.

Screen displays error code f3e2


This code means "BAKE/BROIL range over temperature"
Problem is in either temperature sensor or the control board. Check the temp sensor and wiring from it to the control board first (connector #3, contacts 8 and 10, violet wires) . At room temperature the temp sensor resistance should be around 1080 Ohms. Also check temp sensor for short to ground. If no problems found with the sensor - replace control board.
OBTW - for the broil problem - check the fuse inline with the broil element (continuity between Conn #2, wire 1, blue and conn #4, wire 3, red). It should read several ohms. Good luck!

Getting a error code F3E2


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. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair this oven failure. If you want to attempt to diagnose and repair this failure yourself, resubmit your question with additional details.

Good luck and please rate FixYa!
