The main control board in your oven has failed to communicate with the alarm. This is most likely a fault with the control board itself, which may need replacing.
F1 - Door Not Locking
If there is an issue with the door lock in your appliance you may see this error code. Check the door lock and the wiring and connections to it to get to the cause of the fault
F2 - Door Not Unlocking
The opposite fault to the above, this fault indicates your oven door won't unlock. Once again you'll need to check the door lock mechanism and its wiring and connections. This fault could also be down to the oven thermostat as this could be giving an incorrect temperature reading, preventing the door lock from being released.
F3 - Self Test Error
Turn off your appliance, unplug it for five minutes or so and plug it back in again. Doing so should clear the F3 error code. Easy as that!. If it does not clear the problem you are likely to have a fault so see the links to our diagnosis videos below.
F4 - Temperature Sensor Fault
If you see this error code you'll need to check your temperature sensor and the wiring and connections between the sensor and the main control board. You may need to replace the sensor.
F5 - Control Board Error
This fault suggests a problem has developed with the main electronic control board in your AEG oven. It may need replacing to bring your machine back to full working order again.
F7 - Mains Supply Issue
You'll see this fault if your oven has detected a problem with the power coming into it. This could mean your appliance has been wired in incorrectly. You'll need to check the mains supply connection to your oven to get to the bottom of this error code.
F8 - Power Supply Issue to Control Board
The main control board is not receiving power as it should. Check the wiring and connections to it. If all the connections are fine, you'll possibly need to replace the control board.
F9 - Processor Auto Resetting
As with error F3, turning off and unplugging your appliance for five minutes before plugging it back should reset and fix this fault code.
Here a list of Whirpool oven fault codes. The codes had been collected from different service manuals. This was a memo that I wrote for my own use. I think this can be useful to owners and technicians.

WHIRLPOOL Models SF3, 30'' and 24"
F2 - Oven temperature above specifications Check 8-pin connector from temp. probe to Electronic Oven Control F3 - Open oven temperature probe failure Check wiring, replace oven probe if necessary F4 - Shorted oven temperature sensor failure Check wiring harness, replace oven temperature probe if necessary F5 - Push button stuck or faulty Check for binding of pushbuttons and control panel glass. If OK, replace touch panel F6 - Electronic control logic error (timing) Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC) F7 - Electronic control logic error (lock motor) Replace ERC. F8 - Electronic control logic error Replace ERC.
Electronic control has detected a fault or error condition. Press CANCEL to clear the display & stop beeping. Try the selected feature again. If the E or F error code repeats, remove power from appliance, wait 5 minutes and then repower appliance. Try the selected feature again. If the fault recurs, record the fault or error code and call for service.
Hello steve o - Typically error code F11 indicates a shorted keypad. Try resetting the range by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. This usually will clear most false error codes. Wait approximately ten minutes and if the error code does not clear contact a professional to move forward accurately. Most likely the EOC on the range will need replacing.
Hi - Typically error code F3 indicates a faulty sensor probe or wiring harness between sensor probe and EOC. Try resetting the range by unplugging it or flipping the circuit breaker off for two minutes (this usually will clear most false error codes). Turn on the range and if resetting the unit proves to be ineffective, I would recommend contacting a professional to move forward accurately.
I see that your Frigidaire double oven heats up for about 15-30 minutes, then shuts down and begins beeping while showing an F3error code. The F3 states that the oven is sensing a potential runaway temperature. This is possibly a sensor issue or it could be a false error code.
I suggest giving your double oven a hard reset by cutting the power at the circuit breaker for at least 2-3 minutes.
After restoring power you will need to reset the clock. You will do this by entering in the time and pressing start.
Let the oven heat up, and if you are still receiving an F3 error code, I suggest either contacting the manufacturer or contacting your local authorized technician to diagnose your appliance. Hope this helps.

HI. Essentially, this code will indicate that there is a serious issue with the main control board. Try to reset this board. This can be done, by shutting off the power for five minutes. You can unplug, or shutdown the appropriate circuit breaker for this length of time. Once the five minutes have passed, simply, re- introduce power to the unit, and try to operate normally. If the error code returns, after the reset, kindly replace the damaged main circuit board.
F-1 Board failure. Replace control board (also called ERC or clock).
Hi. The unit is programmed to not operate,or heat, when there is a serious fault within the door latch assembly. This F-9 code, represents a failed door latch assembly. This device must be replaced. Once replaced, the unit will operate correctly.
NOTE_ Try to reset the mechanism. This can be done by shutting down the power, or unplugging for five minutes. Once the five minutes have passed, simply, re-introduce power to the unit, and observe. if the error code returns, replace the door latch assembly.
