Default Whirlpool Oven decided to self clean while we were baking
Model Number: RF386PXGQ   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


We were baking some cinnamon buns and we heard a noise and looked and the oven went into a self clean mode but also said cool on the display. We tried canceling but it would not cancel. We heard a beep a few minutes later and the display showed an F3 code. We unplugged the oven after it cooled off we plugged it back in. The door unlocked but the boiler element stayed on. It also showed a PF on the display. We have had to unplug it because when it is plugged in even with all functions off the broiler element remains on.

F3 error code is a shorted sensor. But I do believe you need a control board also. The reason for that is the sensor will not tell the oven to lock and go in the clean mode. That has to come from the electronic clock control. Tom ******************************************** - Parts
