Hello and welcome to just answer my name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you.

F8E0 error is the Cooling Fan Speed Too Low Fan speed below 500 rpm, either because the fan is spinning too slowly or because there is a problem with the Hall Effect sensor. Within 20 seconds of a fault condition when cavity temperature is above 170°F (77°C).

1.Unplug range or disconnect power.

2.Pull the range forward and remove the top access cover.

3.Verify there are no obstructions in the blower. If there is an obstruction, remove it and go to Step 6. If no obstructions, go to Step 4.

4.Disconnect control board connector P5 and check the fan motor for 105 Ω resistance between P5-1 and P6-3. If the motor test is not good, replace motor and go to Step 6. If motor tests good, go to Step 5.

5.Check the Hall Sensor by removing the control board P7 connector and testing for 5 VDC between P7-7 and P7-1.

If test is good, go to Step 6. If test results are not correct, replace the Hall Sensor.

6.Replace all parts and panels before operating.

7.Plug in range or reconnect power.

8.Start a cook cycle and check for proper operation.

9.Enter the diagnostic mode to view the “Faults” screen. Press START TIME or DELAY START to clear each Fault code(s).

are the "P" points marked or do I need to find a schematic? I am a DIYer.
