Question about Whirlpool GBD277PD Electric Double Oven
Our electric double oven, which is 4 yrs old (model #GBD277PD509) stopped working last Saturday (it was not being used when it went down) and, every 6-8 hours or so, displays a code of E6 F2. (If the code isn't displayed, the panel is blank.) Do you have any ideas of what has happened and how do we fix it?
The problem in our oven has cleared by itself. I did see the E6 F2 error message but for now, it's working fine. Considering the customer service was only able to help to the extent of reading the error code sheet the same as I was (the sheet is behind the touch pad) and seeing how limited the solutions were, we don't think we'll be buying another Whirlpool. I was pretty insulted when the girl a customer quality called to offer me part #8300453 at half cost of $164 providing I have a service guy look at the stove and call in the part. On top of that, the warrenty is 90 days and the part is on back order. Why would the part be on back order? A) they either did not make an ample supply for inventory, B) there are many ovens needing this part. For an oven to require parts after 2.5 yrs of service and 2 self cleanings tells me someone was sleeping with a cigar in their mouth in Quality Control. Or, learning what that meant.
Enjoy the day!

Wiring harness cavity

1. Check keypad connector for firm connection.

long, or key is shorted
E0 Temperature sensor
1. Check sensor connection.
2. Measure sensor resistance (1080W at 70° F. Add 2W per degree.)
3. If resistance is not valid, replace sensor.
4. If sensor resistance and connections are good, then the oven cavity temperature
must have exceeded a safe level. Check for welded-closed relays on the control.
E1 Temperature sensor
E1 Self-clean latch will not
1. Check the latch assembly: latch arm pivot joint, arm/solenoid connection, solenoid
spring, and spring washer.
2. Check the Latch Solenoid:
- Check for firm electrical connections.
- Disconnect the two wires from the solenoid and measure the resistance of the
solenoid. A small resistance (approx. 175W) is normal. If the solenoid is open
(¥W) or shorted (0W), it should be replaced.
3. Check the Latch Switch. Disconnect it and use a continuity tester:
- Door latched = switch closed, continuity should read 0W.
- Door unlatched = switch open, continuity should read ¥W.
4. Check Door Open/Closed Switch. Disconnect it and use a continuity tester:
- Door open = switch closed, continuity should read 0W.
- Door closed = switch open, continuity should read ¥W.
E6 Door is open, but latch
E7 Self-clean latch will not
F7 E1 Common switch wire is
Common wire (+5VDC) to latch switch, and to door switch is shorted to chassis ground
or neutral. A double oven will have two of each switch and one common wire.
1. Check connections at control and at the latch switch and door switch.
2. If all connections are good, then check the individual switches as outlined for the F5
FAILURE/ERROR DISPLAY CODES
Electrical Shock Hazard
Disconnect power before servicing.
Replace all panels before operating.
Failure to do so can result in death
or electrical shock.

I have Whirlpool dble oven GBD277PDS09. Everything works perfectly except the oven lights (upper & lower). They don't come on when the door is opened nor do they come on when the "light" button is pressed. Are the lights wired so they won't work if any of the bulbs are dead or is there another problem?
