Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error code F5 means Hardware and watchdog circuits disagree Replace clock assembly (also called the ERC)
ERC - Electronic Range Control. Watchdog - a combination of hardware and software which acts as an internal scheme, disconnecting the systems output from the process in the event of a malfunction.
Turn off the Oven for 2-3 hours, the oven will reset itself. However, if the error still persists then follow the procedure to troubleshoot the error code--

  • Disconnect power to stove
  • Gain access to the back of the clock (electronic range control or ERC).
  • Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide.
  • Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on.
  • Turn power back on to stove.
  • Watch for the F5 and listen for the beep.
  • If you get the F5 and beep, replace the ERC.
  • If after approx. 30 minutes you do NOT get the F5 and hear the beep, replace the touch pad.
NOTE: Some models incorporate the touch pad and the clock as one part.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks Rylee

I have a magic chef electric wall oven and it flashes an error code of F3 when I try to bake something. How do I fix it and what does it mean?


The F3 code means that the temperature sensor in the oven is not giving the signal to the oven control. This could be the result of a problem with the wiring or the wire harness between the control board and the sensor or indicate that the sensor itself has failed.

To identify the correct parts, you need to provide your oven model number. Try here: http://www.partselect.com/Magic-Chef-Parts.htm . There are other sources for parts.

I hope this helps. If you add a comment with the model number, I'll be glad to give you more specific information for your wall oven.

Hi, the F2 code on the Magic Chef Oven implies that the Oven temperature is too hot.

I have a majic chef oven, when i turn it on it beeps and flashes


Self clean on some older models can cause some issues. F-3 is a sensor error. This could have been damaged by high heat or in some cases if the sensor is ok, the control doesn't know it's there.

Magic Chef Oven won't light


Your oven bake ignitor is becoming defective. Even though it is glowing, the resistance is not great enough to "pop" the gas valve open and is slowly seeping gas into the oven cavity. With a strong ignitor, the oven should light within 30-45 seconds. Because this is a gas oven, I DO NOT RECOMMEND FIXING IT YOURSELF. Call an experienced technician.
