    then what? I have replaced the electronic control board, part #: 8523665 (which replaces original Whirlpool part #: 8522869), cleaned the keytali with a pencil eraser before reconnecting it, got everything back together properly, and the exact same problem started right up again. is the keytail replaceable?

    it's a pain in the *** to plug that flexible ribbon into the slot, but I managed. is there a special tool that makes that process easier?

    i am not aware of a special tool. How long has it worked? It's 11 months later, so did the control that you put in work for this time period? It is possible to get a bad board. What is your model #?

  • evansx Oct 27, 2010

    nope, it didn't even work for a minute. as soon as I plugged the range back in, it went right to the E1 -F2- error code with corresponding beeps. I think I have figured out the solution, however, I will need to replace the touchpad (which Sears stupidly identifies as "switch") because the keytail (ribbon connector) is part of it and the error code indicates a keytail connection problem. I just hope I will be able to return the $116 control board that it turns out I don't need.

    good luck!

    OMG, since ordering the only other part that could be causing the problem (the touchpad/membrane switch), I've done more searching and found a much simpler and FREE solution! simply cut a slip of heavy paper such as a matchbook cover or business card to the width of the keytail (connector ribbon) and slid it into the slot along with the ribbon. wedging the paper into the slot on the back side of the ribbon presses the contacts together and the problem is fixed!

    for anyone else getting this annoying E1 F2 error, try this solution first before ordering any parts. the touchpad and control board are expensive and can NOT be returned after they've been installed. I submitted my order for the touchpad last night at and when I called this morning to cancel the order, the call center agent refused, stating that it's Sears company policy that they will not cancel or change any orders once they have been accepted. the product hasn't even shipped yet, but they will not simply call the supplier to stop the shipment, but rather insist that I must wait until it's delivered in four days, call AGAIN for a "return authorization number" (she would not give me that number before the part is received), ship the product back to them (at my own expense, I'd expect), and then wait for them to apply a credit to my MasterCard. I can't believe a simple square of paper could have saved me all of this expense, hassle, and aggravation.

    when the part comes from sears refuse it. The delivery person has to take it back.

After cleaning oven the fan will not go off and a F2 or F3 flashes.Turned power off and fan starts up as soon as power is restored. I think I pressed wrong timer when I set the oven to clean. I had to get...

It will help to know what f2 & f3 stand for. These are fault codes and there usually is a tech sheet taped to the back of the oven, or inside the control compartment of the oven. If you open thecontrol area, you can look at the sheet and know what failed by the list of fault codes. Unfortunetly, it could be the control board again (these are very fickle electronics), or it could be the oven lock mechanism,or the overheat sensor that keeps telling the fan and other components to stay in their operating mode. it is like the domino effect: one item goes flukey and the rest fall prey to the results. Good luck, Macgivor

I have a Whirlpool double oven (model RBD275PDS14). The control panel goes blank about every 2-3 months, and the oven won't heat. Although, the light inside the oven will still work. When the panel lights...

Your error code is for a stuck keypad. You can try pressing every button at random several times each to unstick.'
When the control board is changed on these ovens the keypad assembly is supposed to be changed also.

GE: JTP56 F2 Door Locked displayed

I have the the same problem as discribed above. Does you oven fan go on for a long time after you use your oven during regular baking. Mine seems to stay on for 45 minutes after I bake anything. Can this be all tied together with the f2 problem? I am wondering if it is not just a fan circulation problem?

Oven showing F2 fault

tire, if your model starts with 911. the code stands for an overtemperature condition. I would start with the temp sensor, this is the probe inside the oven cavity, part # 334300. You can ohm it out, should be around 1100 ohms at room temp. This is for model number starting with 911. back.

F2 Oven overheats

jaz3133, it's probably the temp sensor that has gone bad. You should be able to get it from the front. It's the probe that comes out from the back wall of the oven. You can have someone ohm it out. Should read approx 1100 ohms at room temp. Part number for the temp sensor is WB20K5040. Make sure power is off befor removing the sensor. back.
