    Default "E2 -F1-" Error Code...after installing new control board

    Model Number: GW395LEGQ5
    Brand: Whirlpool

    Hello,


    When I try to use my Whirlpool oven Model GW395LEGQ5, the display gives an error code "E2 -F1-", which started after I ran the self cleaning cycle several months ago. After researching online, I thought the culprit was a bad control board, so I ordered the replacement and installed it, only to frustratingly get the same “E2 -F1-“ error code.

    I think I saw a reference that the temperature sensor be bad. If so, is that something that can be fixed without calling in a repairman? Also, the the original board model number is "12-121" by Siebe, the replacement board model number is "12-141" if it matters any.

    Would really appreciate any feedback/help, this issue has been extremely frustrating to fix with Thanksgiving right around the corner.
    Thank you in advance,

    E2 F1 - UL A/D error(s)

    1. Disconnect power longer than 30 seconds.
    2. Re-apply power and observe for longer than 1 minute.
    3. If failure remains, disconnect power, replace control.

    Make sure your control board is the correct one.

    Here's the one for your model:
    Manufacturer part number 9753639 is RepairClinic item number 779731

    Thanks, that is the exact controller board I purchased "12-141-1" by Invensys. It was purchased from AppliancePartsPros.com.

    Is there a way to check (i.e. with a multimeter) if the board is defective before asking for an exchange?

    Thank you for the feedback. AppliancePartsPros.com is sending a replacement board. I will post my results once I receive and install the new board (crossing fingers).

    Just got the replacement board. I installed it, turned the power back on, and got the same result after trying to turn on the oven. E2 -F1-. What could this possibly be? Sounds like my original board may be fine; all three (including two new boards) can't be defective. Each new board exactly matches the one listed in the photo.
