There is nothing wrong with your range. The code you are seeing on your display is actually "SAB". It means your range has been set on "Sabbath Mode" which is used by some religions to disable the stove to honor the sabbath. It will remain disabled for up 72 hours unless you turn it off. The procedures to clear this mode differ between manufacturers, so you need to refer to the operating instructions in your Owner's Manual to see how to turn this feature on/off. You cannot clear this by unplugging it, either. If you can't find your owner's manual, you can go to managemyhome.com and type in your MODEL NUMBER under the "Manuals" link. They provide owner and installation manuals that you can view or download for FREE.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Whirlpool Gold Range Error code EO F2


On this website: http://www.repairclinic.com/0078.asp#Whirlpool , it shows all of the codes for the Whirlpool errors. Based on the remarks, if it shows a "4 digit failure code" it is "Shorted keypad"
"Replace Electronic Range Control/Clock (ERC)"

But verify this as I am not an appliance repair specialist. I am a computer nerd who just knows how to find information. I am actually trying to figure out an answer to my own problem with my Whirlpool Gold Accubake.

Whirlpool Gold electric range.


Hello delmonico
Welcome to Fixya,

You said, when turning on the self clean option, after 1 minute, I get E 1 F5 on the display panel. What do I do?

Try this .
Turning off the power to the range at the breaker for 5 minutes and see if this will reset the system.

Display shows messages


Is the display showing a letter followed by a number?
Depending on your model, press OFF/CANCEL or CANCEL/
OFF to clear the display. See “Control Display” in the
“Electronic Oven Controls” section. If it reappears, call for
service.

Let me know how it goes.

Thank You,Huuum
