This model does not have a error code of Fr it has a F-1 -F-9 a FF,F-,Fc but no Fr

Are you 100% sure it is a Fr?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I went to books to check it
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
online. Fr exists.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

I m looking at the manufactures service manual.

Where are you seeing the Fr on line at?

Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

ok I found it !! Second oven error sensed.

Which relay board did you replace? part number.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
replace lower oven relay board. 12001914
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Replaced upper oven relay board 4 years ago. Replaced lower relay board today.
It works fine. Checked continuity on both themp sensors. Swapped sensors. Problem stayed with lower oven.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

Ok That is the lower auxiliary relay board .

And all of the connections are on and secured in place?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Double checked everything
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

ok and if you had this same error with the old relay board and the new relay board I suspect it is the main control /clock board that is the issue.

Would be very hard to believe that the old and new relay boards have the very same issue.

Now you replaced the sensor but did you ohm it and it`s harness out from the repay board?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I ohmed it. I also replaced the main control panel 2 months ago
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

did you also ohm out the sensor to chassis ground?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
1 contact from multi tester on sensor and 1 to chassis ground
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

OK Humm! we are running out of options!

When this error code came up did you first replace the main control board then the relay board?

And have you had any power failures or electrical storms in the area?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Replaced main relay board 4 years ago. No electrical storms in area.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No Fr fault when main relay board rplaced
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

ok it was the control panel that you replaced not the main control board

I would recommend to replace the main control now

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I replaced main control board 4 years ago. I rplaced clock/control 2 months ago
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

Ok what are you calling the main control board?

the main control board is #3

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have replaced all 3 boards. The one on the left. The one on the right and the operating panel/clock
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

ok when was the clock one last replaced was it 2 months ago when you had this same issue?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Clock replaced 2 months ago
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

and when it was replaced did you have the same error code?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

Ok I would have to think if you have replaced all the electronics and the sensor .

And none of that has changed the error .

I have to think that you have a issue with the units wire harnesses to were the electronics are not properly talking to each other.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok. I will troubleshoot further. Thanks
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

Ok Good luck if you need any part numbers just let me know.
