I was getting a F2E1 error on the display panel of my oven, which indicated a UL A/D error. When the control and circuit board were replaced, the new panel then
displayed the F3E0 error which means 'Oven sensor opened' according to
the Tech Sheet. What would be the fix from there?
Believe it or not, but on my Whirlpool Estate (Model: TES400PXHQ0)....after reading about this error, I looked at the sensor, and I noticed it was touching the metal on the inside of my oven. I moved the sensor away just by pulling on it to the center of the hole that was cut out for it, plugged the oven in....and didnt get a code at all....not even the PF code. So, I tried the oven out....expecting for it to beep at any second, and it didnt!!!!
So, in conclusion.....I guess by the sensor touching the metal on the inside, it couldnt get an accurate reading, so the computer threw out the infamous F3E0 error.
I've had this oven for 4 months and always had to stare at theF3E0 display (it was donated to me). Thanks for all who had done the research on this to point me in the right direction, as Whirlpool wanted someone to come out at $60 just to come out, then $80/hr!

next time you see the error codes, write them down. F3E0 is open sensor error . I don't think you have an oven sensor error or a problem with the sensor. When the oven works the temperatures are good so the sensor won't be open. F0E0 is "No Error" and "No Action Required". It sounds like a loose or a bad connection in the control section. There is no connection between the oven door and the control panel. Opening and closing the door to clear error codes or to get the oven to work is jarring the control and the loose or bad connection to the point it makes contact and works. Start with the ribbon connector and remove and reinsert it. You can also use a pencil eraser to gently clean the end of the ribbon connector. Remove and reinstall the wire harness connectors on the boards. Make sure all the pins in the connector are in place and not starting to come out the back of the connector.
Here a list of Whirpool oven fault codes. The codes had been collected from different service manuals. This was a memo that I wrote for my own use. I think this can be useful to owners and technicians.
WHIRLPOOL - most models Range/Stove and Oven Fault Codes, Common error codes.
F1 - Analog control board Failure Disconnect for one minute - if error comes back, replace control board F1 - Shorted control keypad Replace keypad F3 - Oven temperature sensor open Replace oven temperature probe F2 - Oven temperature sensor shorted Replace oven temperature probe F3 - Oven too hot Replace oven temperature probe F3 - Clean temperature too hot Replace oven probe F5 - Door latch switch fault Test and replace the door switch.
Whirlpool with 4 Digit Failure Code:
F1 - E1 - Electronic control (flip flop) Replace control board F2 - E0 - Shorted control keypad Replace keypad F3 - E0 - Oven temperature probe open Replace temperature probe F3 - E1 - Oven temperature probe shorted Replace temperature probe F3 - E2 - Oven temp too high Replace temperature probe F3 - E3 - Clean temp too hot Replace temp. probe F5 - E0 - Check door latch F5 - E1 - Check door latch Replace switch if defective
WHIRLPOOL Polara models 5 digit codes:
F1 F0 - EEPROM communication error Replace ERC F1 E1 - EEPROM checksum error Replace ERC F1 E2:7 - UL A/D errors Replace ERC F1 E4:2 - Model ID error Reinsert keytail. F1 E6:0 - Latch signal mismatch error Replace ERC F2 E0:4 - Shorted key error Replace keypad assembly F2 E1:3 Keytail unplugged reinsert the keytail F3 E0:5 Top oven sensor open Test and replace top probe. F3 E1:6 Top oven shorted Test and replace temp probe F3 E2:9 Bake range over temperature Test and replace temp probe F3 E3:8 Clean range over temperature Test and replace temp probe. F3 E4:10 Bottom oven sensor open Test and replace temp probe F3 E:15 Bottom oven sensor shorted Test and replace temp probe F5 E0:14 Door switch errot Test and eventually replace door lock switch F5 E1:16 Door latch not operating Test and eventually replace door latch F8 E0:17 Refrigeration error Test the cooling module. PF Power failure - Does not indicate a fault. PF occurs when power is disconnected.
WHIRLPOOL Models SF3, 30'' and 24"
F2 - Oven temperature above specifications Check 8-pin connector from temp. probe to Electronic Oven Control F3 - Open oven temperature probe failure Check wiring, replace oven probe if necessary F4 - Shorted oven temperature sensor failure Check wiring harness, replace oven temperature probe if necessary F5 - Push button stuck or faulty Check for binding of pushbuttons and control panel glass. If OK, replace touch panel F6 - Electronic control logic error (timing) Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC) F7 - Electronic control logic error (lock motor) Replace ERC. F8 - Electronic control logic error Replace ERC.
Hello Duane, I am happy to
assist you. Typically, error code F4 indicates a lockout error. Try resetting
the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. This
usually clears most false error codes. Wait approximately ten minutes and if
the error code does not clear, I would recommend contacting a professional to
proceed further. Most likely the EOC (electronic oven control) or the Lockout Control
Board on the appliance will need replacing.
F2-E1 Error indicates
a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is
bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it
should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door
appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should
be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
Turn the oven off and wait three minutes before turning it on
again if "F -24" or "F-25" is displayed. These error codes mean the
keys on the control panel were pushed or touched for longer than 60
seconds. Leaning against the oven or hanging objects in front of the
controls can cause these error codes to appear.
Press the "Oven Off" key to clear the display and reset the
oven if an "F" followed by two numbers is shown on the display. Wait
three minutes, and turn the oven on. This type of error code indicates a
problem with the signal received by the electronic control board.
Write the error code down if an error code displays more than once. Thermador recommends calling a service technician if an error code reappears.
HI. This code will appear if the key pad becomes unstable. This may be a loose cable, or faulty control board. Use the procedure to isolate the issue.
1. Check The keypad connector, which will be located on the backside of the control board, for a firm connection. Pull off the connector, and re-attach. If the code comes back, after the re-attaching method, move on to the next step.
2. Press CANCEL. If error code returns after 60 seconds, replace keypad (also called touch pad or membrane switch). Some models may incorporate the keypad and control board as one unit. In this case, replace the control board (also referred to as the ERC or clock).
F2E1 is a fault code that indicates the keypad my be unplugged or has failed.
1. Check keypad connector for firm connection (keypad connects to control
2. Press CANCEL. If error code returns after 60 seconds, replace keypad
(also called touch pad or membrane switch). Some models incorporate keypad
in to control board as one unit. In this case, replace control board (also
called ERC or clock).
