    how to remove control panel

  • johnbradshaw Mar 25, 2008

    They recalled the ovens made one series after mine so I'm stuck with the same problem and no solution just a $500-600 impending cost. (parts and labor as estimated by Whirlpool's approved repairman) But knowing how to replace the parts would be a start. I was told the keypad membrane and control panel need to be replaced. Diagrams and instructions to do this would be helpful. Thanks.

    Had the same problem with Whirlpool RDB275 Double Wall Oven. Oven would periodically beep and display error code E6 F2. Called local Whirlpool Techs and the quoted me 650$ to replace keypad and control board. I opened it up and found the ribbon cable from the keypad to the control board was loose. Popped the cable retainer clip, removed the ribbon cable and reinserted it into the receptical and both ovens work fine now.

Here is how to remove the control panel. Make sure that the power is disconnected first.

Open the lower oven door. You will see a screw on each of the side trims. There should be one on each side. Unscrew these screws. Then genlty pull out the bottom of the trim about 2 inches and then slide the top down.

You should now see the screws that hold the control panel at the top of the oven. Remove the screws on both sides and then pull out the bottom of the control panel. You will have to lift the panel to unhook oven support at the top.

Why does the oven time flash but the oven won't turn on?


power to the unit by removing one or more fuses or tripping one or more breakers at the main entrance panel or at a separate panel. If the range is fused at a separate panel, this panel may be located adjacent to the main panel or in a basement, crawl space, or other location. If there is a grounding wire to the range, disconnect it. Make sure the power to the unit is off.
Servicing FusesIf the range or oven is receiving power but doesn't work, the unit may have its own fuse or circuit breaker assembly. This assembly is usually located under the cooktop of the range. In some units, lift the top of the range to gain access to the fuse assembly; or lift the elements, remove the drip pans, and look on the sides of the cabinets. Inside the oven, look to the back to spot the fuse assembly.
If the unit has this additional fuse or breaker system, components such as the oven light, the range heating elements, the timer, and a self-cleaning feature may be separately fused.
If these components or features fail to work, don't overlook the possibility that the fuses have blown. To replace a blown fuse, unscrew the old fuse and install a new one of the same type and electrical rating. If the unit has circuit breakers, push the breaker or reset button, which is usually located on the control panel.

Related: F2 E6 on Whirlpool RBD305PDS14 double oven - blank display


Equipment is Whirlpool double oven RBD305PDS14 built-in.  After a very stormy summer 2007, I thought a power surge may have zapped the control board.  Problem initially presented on display as error & fault "E6 F2"; simply pressing "Timer Off" would usually clear this error & fault code.

However, some months later, the display would often go completely blank followed by the beep sequence "short-long-short-short-short" (Morse code: dit dah dit dit dit).  No error & fault code would appear.  Pressing any keypad oven control did not work at all in this condition.  When power was cycled at the breaker panel, the usual "PF" with clock display did not appear.

[TURN OVEN POWER OFF AT BREAKER!!!]

After following the excellent information on "how to remove the control panel" posted in this forum, I first tested the "control panel thermal fuse" (refer to the tech sheet that should be behind the control panel once it is removed).  It showed a closed circuit.

I turned my attention to the "flexible" keypad connector cable (error & fault code "E6 F2" is a keypad or keypad connector problem; again, refer to tech sheet).  The control panel has a board mounted female connector with two tabs that may be gently pulled upward to release the flexible cable.

I cleaned the flexible cable contact area (it seats into the board mounted female connector) carefully with a Q tip and some isopropyl alcohol.  I reinserted the flexible cable and gently pressed down on the two tabs (noted above) on the board mounted female connector.  VERY GENTLY tug on the flexible cable to insure it is gripped by the connector.

After all of this monkey business, I re-mounted the control panel display panel on the oven and restored power.  So far, so good.  After applying power, the "PF" with clock display always appears.  I am able to set the clock and press "Start".  Over functions normally.  The clock displays as normal and I no longer observe the problem I described above.

BTW, I noted the incoming 240V has transient suppression (no surge protection, however).

Error codeE6 F2


Remove the power from the oven. Open the control panel and unplug the key pad ribbon from the control board. Assemble the control panel back and turn the power on. Wait a few hours.
If the error code came back on, replace the control board.
If the error code did not show up, replace the control panel (the key pad comes as a control panel assembly).

- The part number for the new control board AP3595759

- The part number for the black/stainless control panel AP3131755

Good luck.

My oven will not warm up. It will just stay at 100 degrees. The gas stove works fine but the oven will not warm up to the desired heat. It worked fine 2 days ago, any suggestions.


My dear friend, i suspect the oven thermostat to be responsible for this. It is a switch that opens when the temperature of a oven is set. Therefore it is bad and cannot work according to the temperature it is set to. The thermostat is located at the control panel where a liquid filled temperature sensor bulb which senses and maintains the temperature of the oven by turning it on and off at every cycle.
First You have to test the thermostat before replacing it. Before repairs or testing can begin you must disconnect the electricity at the fuse panel, at the circuit breaker panel, or by pulling the plug. Make sure the power is off before proceeding. A jolt from 220 volts can be fatal, use caution! Since i do not know the exact maytag oven type, here is the general process for all types of oven.
  1. Access the oven thermostat, which is located in different places depending on the make and model: On freestanding ranges, access the thermostat by removing the screws that hold the back panel in place at both ends. On models with front-loading controls, remove the panel and tilt it for access. Be careful not to let the wires disconnect from their components. Some built-in models have a removable back splash. Lift the backsplash, rest it on the cook top and remove the screws from the back splash, which holds the rear panel. On wall ovens or eye-level ranges, access the control panel by opening the door and removing the screws that secure it. The screws may be under the exhaust hood or below the control panel. If the control panel is hinged, simply tilt it towards you. On some models both the rear and front control panels must be removed. The screws may be found on the trim and occasionally the trim must be removed.
  2. When testing the thermostat switch contacts for continuity, refer to the wiring diagram and remove only those wires being tested - and only one pair at a time. Test switch contact terminals as per your wiring diagram. If the switch lacks continuity at any of the contact terminal points then the entire thermostat switch needs to be replaced.
  3. Adjusting the thermostat: Test the oven temperature by placing the tester in the oven's center and leaving it for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Record the minimum and maximum temperatures of three cycles, then add those figures together, divide the result by six and you have the oven's average temperature. If the average temperature is more than 25 degrees off, try calibrating the thermostat by following your appliance manual instructions for thermostat calibration.
  4. Normally, thermostats are calibrated by pulling the oven's thermostat knob off, turning the knob over and adjusting the calibration ring on the back. If your oven doesn't have a calibration ring you may need to replace the thermostat.
To replace the thermostat of the oven, please follow the steps below:
  1. Disconnect the capillary tube and push it through the back oven wall, being careful not to break the flammable capillary tube wire.
  2. Remove the screws that secure the thermostat to the control panel and gently pull the thermostat out, leaving the wires in place.
  3. To install a new thermostat, reverse the disassembly procedures, transferring the wires individually from the old unit to the new.
Hope this helped you. Thank you for using fixya.

F7 error


I am assuming you have two sections to the ribbon cable and a plastic touch panel. Try cleaning the area between ribbons in the area of the slot in the touch panel. Use alcohol and a Q tip. Let it dry. Try forcing the business card further down into between the ribbon cables. If you have a metal touch panel, you need to apply insulation between the ribbon cable and the edge of the slot. Refer to my instructions at the following link:
http://www.fixya.com/howto/h155060-dreaded_f7_error

If this doesn't help, you have a short in the touchpanel at some other location and my fix can't reach it. You will need a need touchpanel.

I had a very similar problem (I was observing the error & fault code "E6 F2", but not always.  I did always have the beeps.) on a Whirlpool RBD305PDS14 double oven built-in.  I spent time today (Oct. 21) and traced the problem down to the keypad flexible cable that connects the keypad to the oven control panel.

[ALWAYS WORK WITH POWER OFF!!!]

I cleaned the flexible cable contacts that seat into the board mounted female connector on the control panel board using a Q tip and isoproply alcohol.  This did the trick. 

(Elsewhere in this forum, there is information on how to remove the oven control panel and gain access to the control assembly.  I posted this information - keywords in subject: Whirlpool RBD305PDS14.)
