Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F2-E0 in your Whirlpool range indicates shorted keypad. To resolve this issue you’ll have to replace the electronic range control (ERC). Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

After we had a tech to fix the glass top and one burner, the f1:e1 code came out and kept beeping. I was told it could be the control board problem. Could it be loosen wiring problem too?


Hi,

Need model number of your range to answer this question. Is this gas or electric? Is this a freestanding range or cooktop because I only can find information on ranges with this fault code given. All should EEPROM communication error which is a communication error on start up. when the top was damaged was the unit being used? Was water or liquid a factor when this damage happened? A loose wire would be a different error code or fault code like a F2 - E1 or E2, not your code given. I hope this helps, need more information. Thanks

What is the solution if my oven beeps?


Hello friend, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand that your door is locked and you have error "F5E1" showing on your range. I would perform a reset on your appliance which can be done by flipping the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If that does not correct the issue and you continue to receive the error "F5E1" I would contact a professional to come out and repair your appliance because it could be an issue within your UIB (user interface board) or main control panel. Hopefully this helps. -Matt

Code and beeping. Keeps happening and stops briefly when I push cancel but then starts beeping again


Call repair. They will know what the code is and can fix it. And if you are warranted, they'll do it free. Stoves are too complicated these days and they simply don't have to be. If you are hungry you want to cook and eat, not program some more. Please also look in your owners manual. I bet it will tell you what -F2 means.

Frigidaire gas stove beeping

I have a kenmore gas range and on the display is says EO F2


The "F2 - E0" error code means "Shorted keypad".

Remove power from the range, open the control panel and unplug the membrane switch ribbon from the control board.

Reconnect power to the range and observe for an hour.

If the error code reappear - replace the control board.

If not - replace the membrane switch.

If I get the model # I can help you pind the right parts.

Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs for the free answer

My oven wont work the digital panel beeps and shows an f1 symbol


Here is some wisdom for understanding F1 fault codes.

In some models, there are subcodes that make diagnosis even easier.

Here's a simple explanation of what's going on and how to troubleshoot:

The F1 code indicates that:


a. The electronic range control (ERC) is sensing heat in the oven when in a time-of-day (i.e., not cooking) mode.

b. The ERC is receiving information to run multiple heat functions simultaneously.


Although different components (depending upon the model) could generate the code, simple and straightforward testing using your ohm meter is all you gotta do to test for it.

1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor has to be within spec or it will cause the F1 code.
As an example of being out-of-spec, the ERC will generate an F1 fault code when the sensor shows 1650 ohms during a time-of-day mode.
This is equivalent to 350°F in the oven.
The resistance isn't high enough to generate an F2 code (runaway temp) or an F3 or F4 code (shorted/open sensor circuit).
The ERC monitors the sensor circuit after a heat cycle and expects the resistance to drop back to 1050-1100 ohms.
The fault code is generated when this doesn't happen. Checking the sensor circuit means also checking the harness,
harness connections and the sensor itself.

2. If the oven sensor circuit checks okay, then turn your inquisitive eyeballs to the touchpad.
If the range has a separate touchpad/keyboard, the keypad may have moisture that is shorting several circuits simultaneously.
If the F1 code is given immediately (instead of during or after a heat cycle),
remove the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the ERC after clearing the F1 code. If the F1 code does not return in five minutes,
then cast a suspicious gaze upon the touchpad/keyboard. Shorts may be caused by using an ammonia-based glass cleaner.
The touchpad surface will absorb ammonia-based cleaners that are sprayed directly on the glass surface. When heat is applied,
the surface material can break down causing shorts.
If you're gonna use ammonia-based cleaners on your control panel, then you should spray it on the rag and then wipe the touchpanel
-don't spray directly onto the surface of the touchpad.

3. On Amana ranges with a rotary temperature dial, be sure that the knob is in the OFF position when performing tests.

4. If these tests all check good, then replace the ERC.
