    I have error code E8E0
    You mean F8E0? E8E0 is not listed.

    Ok,

    Well, Jeff and I went over what to check in post #3 and post #6 of this thread. If the fan motor and hall sensor test good, then the only part left that would cause this is the main control board being faulty.

    Here's the parts diagram: Parts for Whirlpool WEE730H0DB0: Cooktop Parts

    #21 is the main control board: W11050557 Cntrl-Elec

    No, I sure don't. I haven't worked on this model as of yet, and I don't have the service manual.

    #21 is the main control board: W11050557 Cntrl-Elec

    Click that link to your control board, there is a Question and Answer section there, they could possibly tell you how.

    After struggling with this problem I think I cracked it. The topside fan hal sensor is made of a white plastic sheath with gaps exposing the black indexes. The plastic on mine was badly moulded having small thin flashes left from the moulding process. i scraped the flashes away exposing the black indexes properly and the oven have been great so far. I ran it up to 450 with 2 burners on high for several hour with no fault code. While I had it out I also cleaned the bearings and lubricated them.

    After extensively searching the internet for a fix on this, I wanted to share my own experience. The above post led me to this solution.

    I have a gold series, ceramic top, Whirlpool electric range/oven. It is just over 2 years old. Right around the 18 month mark, we started to have problems with the F8E0 error. It was sporadic at best, and usually, if I simply unplugged the unit, it would reset, and work without further issue. However, a few days ago, the problem came back, and would not reset. Anytime the oven was heated to above 200 degrees F, the error would come up, and the oven would shut down. After researching this, and finding it to be a common problem on these units, I feared the possibility of shelling out $1,500 for a new oven.

    I decided to take the oven apart and see if the problem with the fan was obvious. There is a great video on Youtube for how to disassemble the oven (How to replace cooling fan Whirlpool Range). The video is for a gas range, however, the overall design is extremely similar to an electric. After removing the fan, I cleaned it and oiled it. The fan seemed to move better, but was still a little sticky. I re-assembled the oven, but the problem immediately came back. In order to allow my wife to actually use the burners, and to avoid further frustration, I left things for the time being. The following day, I tackled it again after reading the above post. My design is a little different, and doesn't have the same cover. However, what I did find is that the opposite side of the fan, with the rubber membrane, comes out. I was able to pry it out with just my fingers. As soon as I removed that piece, the fan spun without issue. It was clear that this was the problem restricting the fans rotation. I removed the gold fitting from inside the rubber membrane. I simply cleaned both, lightly re-oiled them, and put everything back together.

    Ran the oven up to 425 o F, and no issue. Just saved myself $1,500, or even $100 for a new fan. This might be worth a shot if your unit is fairly new like mine. Hope that helps.

    Default It worked!!

    I created an account to let everyone know that this fixed my error code! I spent weeks searching the internet for solutions and my local appliance repairman said they don't service these types of issues. I also have a gold-series. I followed these instructions and removed the metal disk from the rubber membrane. The membrane is facing the front of the oven, opposite of the motor on the cooling fan. The axle of the fan is connected to the motor on one end, and the other end sits in the metal disk inside the membrane.

    I removed the disk and re-installed to test. It heated up over 170 with no error code, except the fan was rattling and fairly noisy. I cleaned the fan and de-greased the metal disk and sprayed some WD40 to lubricate everything. It's been working fine with no error code for 2 months now! I noticed the fan was fairly greasy, so I suspect grease from cleaning and cooking gums up the axel and metal disk, restricting the fan speed.

    The fix took less than an hour, and now I know it just needs to be cleaned and lubricated in the future. Thank you, you saved me from having to buy a whole new oven!

    I had this E8E0 code on a Kitchen aid range, lucky it was under the year warranty. The fan part apparently had a revision due to this being a well known error so it is worth a shot to call 1800 number and complain before doing the self fixes above. 1 year warranty is bs, should be 3-5! thank you to all those who take the time to reply with helpful info because that would've been my next route!
