Reinsert key tail

F3 E0

Top oven sensor open

Check for open circuit. Sensor resistance should be 1K to 1.1K @ room temperature. If not, replace the sensor

F3 E1

Top oven shorted

Check for shorted sensor circuit, otherwise replace sensor

F3 E2

Bake range over temperature

At room temperature, sensor resistance should be 1K to 1.1K. If not, replace the sensor. If the sensor checks okay, repair Electronic Range Control (ERC)

F3 E3

Clean range over temperature

At room temperature, sensor resistance should be 1K to 1.1K. If not, replace the sensor. If the sensor checks okay, repair Electronic Range Control (ERC)

F3 E4

Bottom oven sensor open

Check for open circuit. Sensor resistance should be 1K to 1.1K @ room temperature. If not, replace the sensor

F3 E5

Bottom oven sensor shorted

Check for shorted sensor circuit, otherwise replace sensor

F5 E0

Door switches do not agree

Check door switch. Contacts should be closed when plunger is actuated. Check door switch circuit for open

F5 E1

Door latch not operating

Check that door switch is completely closed. Check latch, solenoid, and actuation switch for electrical or mechanical malfunction

F8 E0

Refrigeration not operating properly

Check for open circuit between control and refrigeration cooling module

PF

Power failure (not a failure mode)

Do not replace Electronic Range Control (ERC)
