hi - I have a whirlpool self cleaning oven with accubake system. the oven all of a sudden went into self cleaning mode. We have turned off the circuit breaker to stop the cooking of the food inside. we can't clear the e-2 f3 error code and unlock the door. pls help
THis is a failed oven sensor, it thinks that the oven is to hot and locked the door. HOw long have you had the unit unplugged for?.

about 10 minutes I was worried about waiting until the self cleaning temperature stopped so we turned off the circuit breaker as food is inside.

Wait about an hour with the power off, then turn it back on, hopefully you can get it to open then, can I get the model number on the unit, it should be located in the drawer area of the stove..

ok - do I stay online? We want to go out to get some dinner (chicken is stuck in oven!) so it might be about 1 1/2 hours. Do I just stay on this thread until we return?

I may or may not be here for the evening, it is 11:30 pm here in Pennsylvania, I will be here about another 30 minutes..

ok - no problem. Can I ask another expert? I put in my charge card so I'm assuming I can get some help from another expert? Or perhaps it will all work out. Thank you for your help!

If I am not here you can ask for another expert if necessary, either way you will need to replace the sensor in the oven, you can click on the blue link below to order the correct parts

Repair Clinic offers a 365 day no question ask return policy, so if the repair does not work you can return the part to them for a full refund, yes this even includes electronic parts that many other part suppliers will not allow to be returned.

again the model number will be found on the frame of the range when you open the drawer..
