hi my name is XXXXX XXXXX I can help you with this
OK. I see a lot of comments about this very thing on the whirlpool website so I guess it is a common problem with the oven.
an eo fl is an electronc control failure yes it is
OK. Can I correct with your instructions, and how much will it cost for your advice.
clarify the actual fault is it an eo f1 or eo f5
have you used the self clean feature lately
That's when this issue came up.
ok is thje door locked now
either unplug the unit or turn the breaker off for 5 minutes
I have done that twice already. When I rconnect, the problem persists
chances are the latch assy is bad they make it out of plastic and it melts
try it one more time and put it into a self clean and see if the door locks
Latch assy? Don't understand.
I have tried to start self clean and it is overridden by the error EO and F5.
door lock/latch it locks the door in self clean
The door had come off and it was re-installed again, but the problem was there before this happened.
ok on your control pick any button and hold it down for 1 minute see what it does
I will go and try this, but I have tried it before..
Did it twice, once holding down bake button. message stayed. When I pressed start, it showed pre cycle, but then turned to E1 F5.
ok you have a bad self clean latch that fault will not go away until that part is replaced if you could give me the complete model number I will look up the part for you
The full description is Accubake System, Super Capacity 465
model number open the door its either on one of the sides or the very bottom
that description covers a wide range of models
There are two labels on the door, both burned so that nothing can be made out.
The oven is a bit hot, seems the self clean was on?
hit the cancel button
Nothing happens for one minute, then the same things happens: message E1 F5 comes on.
ok no tag can't look up the exact part then common problem on a lot of whirlpool is the self clean feature the temp. actually rises to 950 deg to burn everything off and then bam it creates this exact problem the latch melts and needs to be replaced for the unit to operate again
So more or less what would the part and installation cost me? This is an 18 year old appliance I just inherited with my house.
your owners manual may have the model number written it but most don't contain the whole number you may have to go back to were you bought it for that information the part ranges between 75-150 and the labor around 120-150 if its 18 you may want to consider replacing it
I think that is what I will do. Yes, for sure I will just get a replacement
ok don't forget to press the accept button and leave a comment thank you and have a good day!
Sure will. Thank you.
