Have a wirlpool RBS305 built in electric oven. last time I attempted to use it, all display normal, however it failed to heat at all. there had been a power failure at some previous time while I was away. Turned oven off at fuse box, waited a while and turned it on. got following message on the display; E3 - F1 - Have tried everything in the guide but although the display seems normal, no heat at all to the elements
Type of Appliance: Oven & Range
reset by turning off power at fuse box, resetting clock, holding "start" button for 5 seconds

Just confirm please, the full model number from the ID sticker is RBS305 ?
The fault code on your oven panel, is it a 4 digit display, alternating between the 2 fault codes E3-F1, or is it displaying as a 4 digit code E3F1?This is important to know*I can give you the fault code meaning, but as far as repairing it goes, it has probably suffered some damage from the recent power spike/outage. It doesnt take much unfortunately*Let me know and I will give you the faiut code info okay
So it is alternating yes? As 2 different codes?AUSSIE- Repair Tech.41121.3560188657
