Oven malfunction and repair (nightmare)
Model Number: GMC275PDB2 Brand:
5 - 10 years
Whirlpool electric combo wall oven (GMC275PDB2)
Initially produced an E2 F3 error. The broiler element was stuck in an “on” position and nothing short of killing power at the breaker would turn it off. I purchased and replaced the oven temperature sensor as well as the control board/micro computer. After installation, when I turned the power on, the unit made an audible beep/tone and I attempted the oven size set-up procedure, however, some keys seemed to be functional and others did not. I repeated this process several times with equally unsuccessful results. At some point the keys that had been responsive (“light” being one) also stopped responding. During the key-press sequence, an F1 error code flashed very briefly. The oven literature suggested the F1 code indicated a bad control panel and so I ordered and replaced that component as well. After installing the new control panel, reinstating power to the unit causes a beep or tone but the control panel does not display anything… no lights, no error codes, no nothing and all buttons are dead. I have checked and rechecked every connection many times over. I am at a complete loss.
I would really appreciate any input and guidance.
