If you look under the bottom door you will see a 3/4" tall slot the entire length of the door. This is where the cooling air blows out. In the middle of this slot is the air switch enclosed in a 5" long metal housing. You can see a thin metal paddle sticking out of each side of the housing. These paddles are spring loaded to angle slightly back. When the fan is on, the airflow will push the paddles forward. If they do not move forward, then you will get the error code. The simplest solution is to vacuum out all of the normally collecting dust that keeps the paddles from moving. To better access and clean the area, the black trim piece that forms the slot can be removed by unscrewing the two retaining screws. That can be more easily accomplished by first removing the lower door. This is very simple. With the door fully open, rotate the small metal clip on each hinge so it hooks over the protrusion on the other part of the hinge. Then lift up on the door (close it part way) and slide (pull) the door and hinges out of the hinge slots. There is no need to remove the entire unit from the wall.

I found out from Thermador customer service that error code F64 means that the lower fan switch (located inside the bottom trim on the right side) is not being detected as closed. In my case, this was because the header (P4) on the Display panel had broken loose from the PC board and was no longer making contact. P4 is where the lower fan switch wires connect to the control boards (actually the display panel).

Good luck!

My bottom oven would not work and the F64 error would come on.....it was an easy fix, seems like the fan switch was stuck...the dual switch has two 3 inch paddle fan blades that were bent and could not move, thus the error F64...to fix this problem gently bend the sheet metal fan/paddles so they do not rub against the bottom frame or the upper frame. the dual switch is located at the very bottom of the front panel, you have to remove the black bottom trim with two screws.

I had this several times now - ultimately the cause was the air sensor switch which makes sure the cooling fan (not the convection fan) is running.

It turns out this switch is not sealed, is probably being overstressed for temperature, and after a while collects enough grease and dirt in it to stop working.

The upside to not being sealed is that once you remove it, you can take it apart and clean it. This is good, since the website for parts ordering doesn't clarify which of two items listed as "SWITCH" is the one I need, and after 30 minutes on hold calling their parts department, I was disconnected.

Hope this helps....

ZacPack's answer helped me but in my case wasn't enough on its own to get the paddle for the lower oven to work again. I had to remove the grill above the lower oven door and clean the dust out of the fan at the back that area that blows the air down to the paddle slot. That improved the airflow to the point where the paddle would work again and the error doesn't pop up.

My frigerdaire oven heats for a while about 15-30 minutes then shuts down with a beeping noise and a f3 code.

Good Afternoon Friend,

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.

-Best Regards-

CODE F64 WHEN TRYING TO USE THE BOTTOM OVEN.

Hi, i found out from Thermador customer service that error code F64 means that the lower fan switch (located inside the bottom trim on the right side) is not being detected as closed. In my case, this was because the header (P4) on the Display panel had broken loose from the PC board and was no longer making contact. P4 is where the lower fan switch wires connect to the control boards (actually the display panel).

Error code F64 on lower thermador oven. Works for a minute or so then beeps and F64 is showing,

Most the time I run across the F64 code it is due to the "sail switch" not being activated. I usually remove the bottom grill and lubricate the micro (sail) switch and actuator (the sail) with a zoom oiler (available at most hardware stores). A small drop is all that's needed. Then move the metal rectangular plate (the sail) back and forth to work in the oil. RARELY do I have to adjust the sail (that metal plate) to "catch" the air and activate the micro switch but that too may be necessary.
