Control display is flashing FS or F3 and then turns itself off


The error code F-S or F-5 is the closest error message I have found in information for your convection microwave oven. The F5 error code indicates that the damper switch has a sensing error. Be sure that the blower outlet is not blocked or restricted. I would recommend calling for service on something like this.

The F3 error code is an indication of a stuck key panel. We do not recommend that the customer remove the cover of their microwave oven. Even with the microwave oven unplugged, there are some components that hold a charge of 25.000 volts.

Note: General resolution for problem is based on information submitted with question. If problem persist, contact a service technician to Sears Repair Department 1-800-469-4663.

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

Error code F5:E7 Can not get the oven door unlocked or reset this code. What do we do?


Beginner on forumn, don't have any manual in front of me on f5:e7. Sounds like a conventional oven problem, oven door locking. If in fact is some form of conventional heat oven (convection?), I had similar problem with a GE range, it flashed some kind of code seams like which I later interpreted by using owner's manual that explained codes. In my case it was in "cleaning mode" and you can't turn that off unless you unplug or turn breaker off, that puts it back to default mode with nothing running. I simply tried out the self cleaning feature, from there the oven went to full on heat and oven door locked unexpectedly. I learned stays locked till cycle finishes and oven cools, which is some time after the oven automatically switches off, said that it can be a couple of hours before you hear a...click, and now door opens (note to self, don't ever do that again).

Model# 66568601891 (Whirlpool) Error code F5. Can't find solutions in the forums for this code for microwaves but yes for others appliances with different meanings. I unplugged appliance for 24 hrs and...


F5 may be a transient problem (grease, impending failure) involving the door switches or *possibly* a sensor error.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

It should also have the fault / error codes.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Kenmore Gas Range model # 362.75491990 F3 error Oven will not hold temp - error message displays and beeps I Replaced the oven temp sensor same issue Is the control panel bad?


Hi,

Many models of the GE microwave have sensors that can detect humidity from the foods you are cooking. This allows the microwave to make adjustments to the power levels used to cook your food. If "Sensor Error" appears, you should either press "Clear" to cancel the mode or leave the food in the appliance longer to give the microwave more time to detect the food.

Press "Time Cook" to manually enter the time if you receive an error message when trying to use the "Sensor Reheat" mode of your GE microwave. The error message may be caused by the food item being too large or too small to detect.

these are some other code error that will help you in case of next time.

  1. Step 1 Press "Off/Cancel" (or "Cancel/Off" depending on your model) to clear the error code. Note the code if it reappears.
  2. Step 2 Replace the touchpad if the code displayed is "F0," "F7" or "F10." A function key is stuck or shorted.
  3. Step 3 Replace the touchpad or the clock (ERC) if the code "F1" is displayed. Disconnect the ribbon connector to the touchpad. If no code is displayed after an hour, replace the touchpad. If the code displays again, replace the clock.
  4. Step 4 Replace the oven temperature sensor if "F2," "F3" or "F4" is displayed. "F2" indicates the oven temperature is too hot and the oven temperature sensor is suspect. "F3" or "F4" indicates the oven temperature sensor or shorted or open.
  5. Step 5 Replace the ERC if "F5," F6" or "F8" is displayed. The ERC is the main control unit. "F5," F6" and "F8 are codes that indicate problems in the ERC functions.
  6. Step 6 Inspect the door-lock assembly and circuit if "F9" is displayed. The door must lock when the oven is in use. If the lock mechanism is not functioning or if the detection circuit is malfunctioning, the stove will display "F9."


jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); NOTE:


"F3" codes mean your oven temperature sensor has failed or shorted out. The only thing you can do is to replace the sensor.

Take care.

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.
