Question Whirpool Electric Range error Codes: F1 and F3
Model Number: RF396PXYW1   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Within the last 12 hours we are receiving an error code on the clock display - F1 and F3. I do not have a manual, but based on what I've found online - it says to replace the ERC or clock for the F1 code and an oven sensor for the F3 code........any help on this would be great. Is it worth fixing? I'm seeing other threads talking about $400 for a new ERC. Yes I did unplug and plug back in after a couple minutes and it the codes popped up......again, based on these costs - is it worth fixing?

Here is a manual which should help
https://secured.whirlpool.com/Servic...LE/4321893.pdf

I do not have a manual, but based on what I've found online - it says to replace the ERC or clock for the F1 code and an oven sensor for the F3 code
Yes looks like that is what the codes are. Odds are that the EOC F1 error is giving you a false F3 error. Only way to tell is pull the sensor and check it with a meter. If OK then the the control board is the probable cause.

Is it worth fixing? I'm seeing other threads talking about $400 for a new ERC.
Looks like a control panel (Item 6 in Section 2) is about $260.00, if available at all. Note there are companies out there that will repair old control boards but I have never used one so do not know what they charge.
If you have to get a tech in, then a new control board (if they can get it) with the labor is probably going to run around $400.00 so it probably makes more sense to replace the unit.
