Oven goes into Lock after reaching about 300 and indicates error code E2 F3. Do you think this is the control board? If so, is replacing the control board in a RBS245 similar to the instructions I see listed for the RBS305? Remove screws at bottom, remove trim, remove board keeping track of harnesses?
Answer Hello Richard,
The procedures will be the same in these two models. The difference here is the internal circuitry and the features on the display. The E2-F3 is the fault code for the oven temperature too high (over 575° in cook mode). 1. Check sensor connection. 2. Measure sensor resistance (1080O at [70°F]; add 2O per degree). If resistance is not valid, replace sensor. 3. If sensor resistance and connections are good, then the oven cavity temperature must have exceeded a safe level. Check for welded-closed relays on the control.
Hello Nick. if the sensor is reading 850 at room temp, it is bad. However, it does not make the board turn off. It sounds like the control board and the sensor will need to be replaced on the unit. You can test L1 on the board and see if there is 120 volts AC there. If so, board is bad.
Thanks for the answer. I checked L1, L2, N, and E. All of them are 120V. The normal is 240V, right? Do I need to check the suppressor and how to check it? Thanks
Answer Hello Nick. No, L1 And L2 should be 120 volts. However, if you test across L1 and L2, then it becomes 240 volts.
How do I replace the oven board of a Whirlpool oven model #RBS305PDQ16? The video you on your site for that part number is for different oven.
Answer Hello Andy,
Turn the breaker to the unit off and verify there is no power to the unit. Open the oven door and look near the bottom for a screw on each side holding the trim on. Remove these two screws and pull the trim toward you about 2 inches and then pull them straight down toward the floor, this will expose the two screws at the bottom of the control panel that were covered by the trim. Removing these two screws, (one on either side), will enable you to pull out and push up on the control panel to remove it from the unit. Be careful of the wiring. I strongly recommend to transfer each wire/connector one at a time so you don't become confused on wire/connector placement. Remove the old board from the panel and install the new one. Reverse these instructions to re-assemble.
