Error code F3-E4 Whirlpool Electric Range RF388LXKQ

The code F3 E4 displays on the stove after the oven has been on for about 1/2 hour. According the tech sheet I have, the bottom oven sensor is open. I replaced the sensor and still have the same problem. An additional problem that may or may not be related is that the digital display goes blank after the oven has been on for awhile. This began happening about a year ago, but the oven problem has just started a week ago. I removed the back from the oven and inspected the wiring and connections to the control and found no problems. I am thinking it's a faulty control, but after wasting $60 on a sensor, I am a bit gunshy about forking over $270 for a new control. This stove is only 4-5 years old. Is this typical of Whirlpool quality these days?

    I have the whirpool gold also and it is about 5 yrs old. I am getting the e4 f3 error code. The oven will clean, broil and stay on as long as I do not put anything in the oven. As soon as I place something in the oven I get the error message.

  • Dave Peacock Nov 27, 2008

    While cooking, E4 F3 appears. Beeping is heard every 3-5 mins.(unless unplugged so you can sleep) Impossiable to finish cooking. Whirlpool ruined my Thanksgiven dinner, because no one seems to know the GENIS that engenieered this.

The solution that the recommended appliance reapir person told me for my whirlpool electric range oven not coming on and a display of E1 F1 was to replace the digital control center with new one for $425, this is after an $89 service call to just tell me what was wrong. Since the range cost only $645 I will probably instead learn to bake with the convection part of teh microwave /convection oven I got last year for $295, and hope the obsolescence engineer at whirlfool has a burnt thanksgiving turkey and fallen cakes. this problem w/ the oven not working occurred while I was on vacation and the power company had a light out problem in our neighborhood then I guess sent a power surge back on and did my six year old oven in. Should have kept my old simple gas range.

Whrilpool range error code E4 -F3-


Hello,
The F3-E4 error code means that the oven sensor tempature probe has shorted out and it needs to be replaced. This link http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/whirlpool-oven-sensor-item-number-ap4099532.aspx shows you what the sensor looks like.It in back wall of the oven cavity usually in the upper left side. To check to see if it indeed shorted,unplug it from where it plugs into in the back panel and use a ohm meter and look for a IF GOOD ohms value of 1060-1100 ohms IF it test at ZERO ohmhs or from 1-500 ohms the sensor is going to be shorted and needs to be replaced. It will only be considered good if at room temp is 1060-1100 plus/minus 40ohms

The F3 - E4 means Oven temperature sensor (RTD) opened (lower oven, if double oven) and is suggested to

Replace Oven temperature sensor (RTD)


Also your control board is composed from two separate parts which are both very expensive.

One part is the electronic control with pads and clock CNTRL-ELEC
Part
Number: AP4433850 made by WHIRLPOOL

And behind this is the power supply pca Power supply, pca
Part Number: AP3135669 made by WHIRLPOOL.

The part which becomes usually overheated is the power supply due to the presence of the transformer on it. So you need to visual check both above parts before proceeding with any replacement to be sure which is the one that have been over heated.

Here is the link with all above parts and also indicated the prices just to have a reference.

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.

Turn off the breaker and wait for 5 minutes. the follow this 3 steps:
