I have a Whirlpool Electric oven, Accubake " system. Each time I turn the oven on, it shows "cln" and 350degrees, locks and begins the cleaning cycle, but after one minute it shuts down and shows an F-2 number on the screen. It will not alow the use of the oven at all. Any suggestions?

Yes.

Ok Larry thanks for that,

The meaning of the error code and the corrective actions are listed below.

F2 Oven temperature is too high 1. Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).
2. For SELF CLEAN models: check door lock operation.
3. Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit, not actual oven temperature.

Basically in this case I think that your sensor may be the problem, You should remove the temp sensor from the oven then test it with a ohm meter, it should read around 1080 ohms at room temp, if it does not read on or near this mark it's bad and should be replaced.

I would like to earn your highest rating Larry, if you are not totally satisfied with my answer please hit the continue button.
