A day or so ago there was a storm and our electricity kept coming on and off, over and over again. Well, since then, the fan has been on and we cannot get it to turn off. Is there some way of resetting the oven?

Re: fan will not stop
About the only way to try to reset it is to unplug the oven. Im not sure if it's a convection fan or blower fan that is running but it sounds like one of the fan relay contacts on the board is shut. In a normal standby condition these contacts should be open. You can test these at the control board if you know how to use an ohmeter. On harness P2 on the control board you should have 10 to 15k ohms between p2-5 (grey) to white and 8 to 12 k ohms on p2-6 (orange to white). These tests are done with the power off. If you are not familiar with doing these tests, best call a tech in. Catriver...post back.

Equipment is Whirlpool double oven RBD305PDS14 built-in. After a very stormy summer 2007, I thought a power surge may have zapped the control board. Problem initially presented on display as error & fault "E6 F2"; simply pressing "Timer Off" would usually clear this error & fault code.
However, some months later, the display would often go completely blank followed by the beep sequence "short-long-short-short-short" (Morse code: dit dah dit dit dit). No error & fault code would appear. Pressing any keypad oven control did not work at all in this condition. When power was cycled at the breaker panel, the usual "PF" with clock display did not appear.
[TURN OVEN POWER OFF AT BREAKER!!!]
After following the excellent information on "how to remove the control panel" posted in this forum, I first tested the "control panel thermal fuse" (refer to the tech sheet that should be behind the control panel once it is removed). It showed a closed circuit.
I turned my attention to the "flexible" keypad connector cable (error & fault code "E6 F2" is a keypad or keypad connector problem; again, refer to tech sheet). The control panel has a board mounted female connector with two tabs that may be gently pulled upward to release the flexible cable.
I cleaned the flexible cable contact area (it seats into the board mounted female connector) carefully with a Q tip and some isopropyl alcohol. I reinserted the flexible cable and gently pressed down on the two tabs (noted above) on the board mounted female connector. VERY GENTLY tug on the flexible cable to insure it is gripped by the connector.
After all of this monkey business, I re-mounted the control panel display panel on the oven and restored power. So far, so good. After applying power, the "PF" with clock display always appears. I am able to set the clock and press "Start". Over functions normally. The clock displays as normal and I no longer observe the problem I described above.
BTW, I noted the incoming 240V has transient suppression (no surge protection, however).
Could be control module, but not sure. I had issues with a code a long time ago, and the broiler kept coming on and wouldn't shut off, so finally had to shut it off at the breaker. Turns out the control module is fried. But just a thought.
Hello,"If actual over temperature condition occurred" Look for welded relay contacts. If this happens,replace oven control (also called clock or ERC). IF NO OVER TEMPERATURE condition occurred: Look for 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.Check door lock switches. REMEMBER: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit, not actual oven temperature.
you have a faulty cut out stat. if you unplug oven , remove from housing and take lid off
near the cooling fan on top cable tied in the wireing is the cut out . it has 4 wires going in it 2 blue 2white just replace it and will be back to normal hope this helps you
