Question about Whirlpool RF368LXKS Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

We have a Whirlpool Gold oven and we were cooking something when it all of the sudden locked. We get an error message saying E2 (in red) and F3 (in blue). Can't find our manual, oven is 6 years old, and can't get it open to get the serial number. So what do the codes mean? Thanks!

The F3 E2 error code indicates that the electronic oven control board in the range senses an over-temperature condition in the oven.

This can be caused by a failed temperature sensor probe, a wiring problem between the sensor and the control board, or a failed electronic oven control board.
If the oven is apparently not overheating when this error code appears, then your likely failure is the temperature sensor probe.
If the oven is overheating, then you likely have a failed electronic oven control board due to a stuck relay not cycling the oven heating element off properly.


For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

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.

My oven locked while cooking and will not open. Says e2 f3


Oven temp too high. Check sensor. Should be around 1100 ohms and not grounded to frame. If the sensor is ok then the control relays are fried.

Error codes e2 and f3


F3 is an open or shorted oven temperature sensor, you will have to replace this and it should be attached near one of the elements but you will have to pull it out through the back.

E2 is, sorry to say, a possible ERC or Electric Range Control, otherwise known as the brain behind it. But on the plus side, sometimes it gives this code intermittently when it can't process the information from a failed sensor, so you might get lucky.
