I was baking and everything was fine. Then the oven beeped and said there was an error– to press start and then cancel. Now I can’t turn on any of the oven settings. I get a message that says feature not available.

After a thunderstorm, our range display shows the word “hot” and will not do anything. The burners work but the oven light comes on but will not stay on, and all other buttons just beep when pushed.

Is this fixable or did the lightening permanently damage the stove?

Range Model# WFE710H0AH0 Oven would not heat over 280 degrees after 30 minutes, Auto Test read – F1 E0, I replaced the control unit #WPW10340304 from Appliance Pro, Oven still not heating past 200 degrees. Auto Test with new Control Unit now says: “1 Failure…. 0 Fault…. Check wiring DBL K1 or BAK K2 or Bake Element.
What should I do, return new control unit and order the lower oven bake element?

I put a meatloaf in the oven when suddenly the door locked, error code e2 f 3 appeared and then it said “self clean” so I hit cancel and “cool” came on. We shut off the power but after an hour the door still wouldn’t open. My meatloaf is still in the oven and I can’t get it out. We don’t dare turn the power back on as it stays locked and starts heating up again! What can I do?

Have a Whirlpool range model# wee740hoso with error code F8EO.

I started the self clean option on my Whirlpool range (about 8yrs old). I went back later to find the door ajar, and the lock out, but not engaged in the door. I have the E0 F5 error. Is there any way to clear this and disengage the lock.
