Condition
Check/Repair
F1 F0 N/A EEPROM communication error Replace control
F1 E1 N/A EEPROM checksum error Replace control
F1 E2 7 UL A/D errors Replace control
F1 E4 2 Model ID error Reinsert keytail. If not corrected, replace control.
F1 E6 0 Latch signal mismatch error Replace control
F2 E0 4 Shorted key error Replace keypad assembly
F2 E1 3 Keytail unplugged Reinsertkeytail
F3 E0 5 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 6 Top oven shorted Check for shorted sensor circuit, otherwise replace sensor
F3 E2 9 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, replace the control.
F3 E3 8 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, replace the control.
F3 E4 10 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 15 Bottom oven sensor shorted Check for shorted sensor circuit, otherwise replace sensor
F5 E0 14 Door switches do not agree Check door switch. Contacts should be closed when plunger is actuated. Check door switch circuit for open.
F5 E1 16 Door latch not operating Check that door switch is completely closed. Check latch, solenoid, and actuation switch for electrical or mechanical malfunction.
F8 E0 17 Refrigeration not operating properly Check for open circuit between control and refrigeration cooling module
