Question about Ovens

1 Answer

My MV1608WW microwave oven stopped working a while back. I have had it a couple of years. The power came on and lights, but nothing on the key pad worked. I had it unplugged for several months and plugged it back in today. It has started to work. Any reason this may have happened. Is it safe to use.

The electronics inside the unit may have just needed to be reset by removing power to it. I can't tell you whether or not it's safe to use. If you are unsure I would suggest having it checked out by an electrician or appliance tech first.

Oven wont heat up, F-1 on timer


This indicates the ERC Electronic Range Control has failed. First check the key pad. Press each button one at a time. You should feel or hear a click and feel the retraction. If any button is not working the problem is likely in the key pad. If you locate the tech sheet ( somewhere on the stove, usually in the control panel) it may have a ohm check that can be done on the key pad to rule out the key pad. Here is a simple test that you can do to determine whether the clock or the touchpad are defective when the display reads F1:

- Disconnect power to the range.
- Gain access to the back of the ERC (electronic range control, or "clock").
- Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire about 1 ½" to 2" wide.
- Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on. Replace any covers removed to gain access to the ERC.
- Turn the power back on to the range.
- Watch for the F-1 and listen for the beep.
- If you get the F-1 and beep, replace the ERC.
- If after approximately 60 Minutes you do not get the F-1 fault, replace the touch pad.

NOTE: Some models incorporate the touch pad and the clock control as one part so F1 = bad clock control(ERC). If all seems good the control is at fault. Check to see if you have power going into the control. If you do and nothing is working the control board or ERC needs to be replaced. Here is a link for checking and replacing an oven control. If you need diagrams and illustrations of your specific model enter your model their. All parts come with installation instructions.

My microwave oven (ms143sce) is displaying this error " - S E - " . None of the buttons want to work, if pressed nothing happens ?!?


It means shorted key panel. You need to replace it. I suggest going to Repair Clinic, enter the microwave's model number. See if they have the replacement touch pad for you.

Thank you for using Fixya and you generous rating will be much appreciated.

My DACOR + ECS 130 covection oven light relay keeps clicking.....


I have the same problem and sent an e-mail to DACOR. A James Carlos responded and advised that DACOR could not provide DYI info because of liability problems, pure BS in my opinion. I've had problems with a DACOR microwave (manuf. by Sharp), my DACOR wall oven Model ECS103 and my DACOR Raised Vent system and told Mr. Carlos so. I don't know how to fix the blinking oven light other than cutting power at the circuit breaker panel or removing the two light bulbs which other have advised but suspect a new front control panel is required. If you find a fix, please advise me at bsquared37@yahoo.com. I think DACOR products are overpriced and junk.

Thanks, Bill 12/10/2009

Oven comes on for no reason followed by the start beep


yes you can kill the power and lock out the box with a pad lock for safety. the panel is attached by screws usually on the bottom of panel. lower and seperate the control panel ribbon from the erc (electronic range control). without removing any other components leave ribbon loose and replace panel. turn power back on. if the beeping does not recur, the control panel probably has a stuck key. if it does resume the erc is faulty

Jenn-Air JMC7000 Microwave Stopped working


take the trim off of the microwave and on the top of the oven on the right side all the way in the back there should be a reset button just like a surge protector.

Whirlpool code E6 F2


Hello ssuebe51
Welcome

Turn the power off to the oven.

Check the connection from the key pad to the clock.

If the connection is good then put back together.

Turn power back on and press the cancel button.

If the error code returns after 60 seconds then the keypad will have to be replaced.

Thank you huuum

Whirlpool oven accubake system


I have a whirlpool accubake wall oven. Half-way through baking a pie ,unknown to me, the oven went to the self-clean mode , the door locked and the pie started to burn. I tried to turn the oven off but it would not cut off. I immediately ran to the house's main power and turned off the oven breaker. I waited for a short time to let the oven cool enough to open the door and get the burned pie out, then went back to turn my breaker back on and the oven (even though in the off mode) started heating again with the bottom unit turning red again. I had to then go back and pull the power. We tried this several times trying to push the off button but the oven will not go off until we throw the breaker. Help please!
