Only thing i could say here is replace the control or clock its real name is an eoc electronic oven control now the part is under a five year warrenty but you have to pay labor and use some one that is authorized for ge warrenty work check your owners manuel for second to five year warrenty and go to ge web site to locate servicer in your area http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/service/

Whirlpool built in electric oven


The upper element is for broiling and should not come on until you tell it broil. If it is coming on as soon as you turn on the breaker then it sounds like the printed circuit control board is bad. There is a relay on the board that engages when you program in the broiler. The relay can be hard to find and may not be removable. My broiler would come on when I programmed in the bake mode, go into runaway heat, put up a F10 code, and shut off. I could not clear it until I programmed in the clean mode for 2 hours. Now it works great.

I have a frigidaire self cleanig oven and I want to clean it. I pushed the clean button and it lopcks the door but it does not get hot and act like it is cleaning. The oven is over 6 yrs old


These may be dumb questions... but do your bake and broil typically work correctly? What model do you have?

Depending on model, you should be able to press clean, high or low (2 or 3 hrs), then clean again. At that point the door should lock and the bake element should begin to get hot.

I have an old Whirlpool Self-Cleaning oven. I've followed the use guide instructions but still can't get the cleaning light to come on. I have both knobs to clean but the oven light comes on and the...


Probably, in some models both the bake and broil come on to help it heat faster and hotter. In some units the self cleaning light will not come on until a certain temperature is attained. Are you setting the start time for right now, and the stop time for 2 to 3 hours from now?

Oven flashes F2 and beeps in the middle of baking or broiling something. Our oven is all electric and recently whenever we start to broil or bake something, after a little while it will shut off and the...


HI. an F-2 during a baking cycle is the result of an out of control oven temp that has reached Temperatures above 615F-630F

If this actual over temperature condition occurred, Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred, Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature.

My oven keeps beeping F2 and it won't turn off. The top broiler coils are bright red and heat is pouring out of the oven. I have held down the off button, pushed start, pushed bake, anything I can think...


Control senses oven temperature above 615F-630F. shut down the breaker switch asap.

  3. Repeat steps A and B for door switch.
3. Measure door switch (door open = switch open small low voltage terminals). Replace switch if defective.
4. Measure latch switch (unlatch = switch open, CAUTION - oven light contacts are closed). Replace switch if defective.
5. If corrections are made in any step, reconnect power to control. Press and hold any key for 1 minute to clear R failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.
6. If failure remains, disconnect power and replace control.

Neither oven will come on


Hello kybattey
Welcome to Fixya.

You said, After coming on and preheating Saturday, the upper oven went off and the lower wouldn't work either. Control paned was blank, but interior lights were on and pushing control paned buttons resulted in beeps. Turned off breaker for 5 minutes to reset and upon retry, the fan came on for maybe 5 seconds and then went off. Nothing else changed. Any suggestions?

You say the ovens went on and then later cut off.
Does the clean mode work?
Try the clean mode and see if it goes on.
Assuming it will clean!

Since the Range will clean you have confirmation that the proper power is reaching the range. It also verifies that the elements are in working condition. You will need to check the high temperature limit switch and the door latch mechanism. If either of these is defective, the bake and broil function will not operate properly
Let me know how it goes.
Waiting your response.

What does the F1 alert mean?


Hello jiverson,
Welcome,

You said, your get a recurring F1 beep even after I press "cancel" I worked with the oven for about 2 hours trying various combos of opening the oven, pressing cancel and trying to perform various functions (light, clean, bake, broil, etc.) to no avail. I got it to stop for about an hour at one point, but it started right back up again. It also seems that every now and then the oven light will come on all by itself during one fo these alerts

Please send me your complete model number including the single diget at the end of the model number.
For example: FGB24S5AW1
Then I can be sure!!!!!!!!!!!
Waiting your response. I'll check for it through out the day!
And get back to you as fats as possible so you can take care of it Monday!

Kenmore electric built-in oven control panel beeping


Try this first!
The control panel has a flat ribbon cable that plugs into the relay module. The ribbon is actually two ribbons pressed together. The plastic insulation has a defect, and the leads between the two ribbons cross. You can seperate them easily by lifting them apart. Place a piece of paper between them to act as an insulator. This should solve your problem. If that does not work, repalce the defective parts yourself. You can do it for about 30% of what a repair company would charge. it's either got to be 1. Control panel 2. Relay panel. Good luck!!!
