    I found it to the left of the door just below the upper element. I actually didn't have the patience to wait for your answer. I found it by following the wiring diagram. But if I had been patient, your answer would have been perfect.

    Thankyou.....xbikeman2

  • xbikeman2 Mar 04, 2008

    to tech 17: Thanks for the info. The wires entering the sensor were burnt off at the sensor. But if it happens again, I'll know what to look for. Thanks again--xbikeman2

    im here if you need any more help try cleaning all the connectors to the clock or eoc before replacing it and if there a mylar ribbon going to the clock reply and ill tell you how to clean that if you can use a meter you can test the sensor before replacing it as the code isn't absolute like if there is resistance between the connectors and the probe the fault code will say bad because it cant communicate see so it says bad probe

Whirlpool GR396LXGQ oven comes on by itself & goes into clean cycle, code reads E2 -F3-


Whirlpool F3 faults relate to temperature problems in the oven. In the case of the error E2-F3, F3 is the general fault code and E2 is the specific error code. An E0-F3 error indicates that the oven's temperature sensor is open; E1-F3, that the temperature sensor is shorted; E2-F3, that the oven temperature has exceeded the maximum rated 575 degrees Fahrenheit in "Cook" mode; and E3-F3, that the oven temperature has exceeded the maximum rated 950 degrees Fahrenheit in the clean mode. Here is the probe to order.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

How to change the door switch


Hello.

Some Washer ranges are equipped with electronic displays that indicate the time of day and the oven's temperature when it's in use. The display also alerts users to error codes including PF, or power failure, and various letter and number combinations that correspond to issues ranging from electronic control malfunctions to problems with the oven door latch.

F2 Faults

Washer F2 faults relate to temperature problems in the oven. In the case of the error E2-F3, F2 is the general fault code and E2 is the specific error code. An E0-F2 error indicates that the oven's temperature sensor is open; E1-F2, that the temperature sensor is shorted; E2-F3, that the oven temperature has exceeded the maximum rated 575 degrees Fahrenheit in "Cook" mode; and E2-F3, that the oven temperature has exceeded the maximum rated 950 degrees Fahrenheit in "Clean" mode.

Clear Error Code

If your oven display shows a letter/number combination, washer advises clearing the display. Press "UPPER OFF" or "LOWER OFF" on double oven models. On single oven models, press "OFF/CANCEL" to clear the display. If the code reappears, the manufacturer recommends contacting a professional service technician or contacting the Washer producer

Professional Service

The Tech Sheet included with Whirlpool ovens is meant for use by professional technicians servicing the unit. To address an E2 F3 error, a technician can check the oven's temperature sensor connection, measure the sensor's resistance and, if necessary, replace the sensor.

Thanks.

I have Whirlpool Schott Ceran Accubake range. Got and F3E2 code while oven was in self-cleaning mode. What does this mean?


Hi.

F3 E2 is a temperature runaway error. It means that the control board detected that the oven is too hot. If there is no effective overheating the error occurs because the temperature sensor is shorted.

here the explanation from manual:

F3 E2 : Oven too hot, over heating

Solution:
Test and replace oven temperature sensor.

Before replacement the temperature sensor must be tested. A good sensor will read about 1080 Ohms at room temperature. If the sensor is shorted will only read a couple of Ohms or zero.

If the sensor is good the problem can be the control board, wiring to temperature sensor, or in sporadic cases an heating element that stays always on because of a wiring contact. The last case is quite uncommon.

The most common fault is a defective temperature sensor. The sensor is a probe located inside the oven cavity. The sensor is attached to a two wires connector and held by one or two screws. Disconnect power. Remove the sensor. Undo connector and read Ohms at connector. If there is low impedance replace the probe.

Here a tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most aplliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

Regards.

You have a faulty keypad. You could probably special order this part from a local appliance parts supply store for 50-60$ or purchase a new microwave.

Whirlpool Accubake Duo System electric range fault coes E4 F3


F3 code correlates to oven temperature. Either the oven temperature sensor is malfunctioning or the over-limit switch is open. This is usually the result of using the self-clean mode and the over-limit switch gets stuck open. It has to be replaced...not too bad of a job if you have some mechanical/electrical knowledge. Ask parts supplier for a schematic so location can be visualized (inside top cavity on oven wall with a couple of wires. Also, Sears carries parts for these ovens. Hope this helps.

Fault code F3, then F2


Well here's the details about those codes:
F2 :-
1. The oven temp has risen above 665F and the door is not locked or
2. The temp has risen above 965F with the door locked 1. Check oven temp in mode that failure occurred. Replace EOC (Electronic Oven Control) if above limits

F3:-
Oven temperature sensor is open (above 3000 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for open wiring between oven temperature sensor

Amana range will heatup then turn it's self off


F3 F4 Open or shorted oven temperature sensor Replace oven temperature sensor
Oven temp. sensor needs to be replaced. You should be able to look at diagrams with the model # for part location @ http://www3.sears.com/ or http://www.appliancepartspros.com/. The sensor looks like a rod about 4-6 inches long and mounted to the back wall inside the oven. Some can be pulled out from insided the oven by taking out the two screws. If no screws then you will have to pull the oven out and remove from the back.
