Whirlpool stove, Model GR465LXLS 1, Error E4-F3
« on: September 02, 2015, 10:10:11 PM »

I have a Whirlpool electric stove, Model GR465LXLS1 that doesn't bake very well unless temperature is set to a higher than normal temp.  The oven bakes for a while and sometimes it beeps and gives an Error Code E4-F3.  Most info I've read says to check and replace temp sensor.  I haven't found anyone who has had a bad sensor.  They say to replace the "board".  Which board needs to be replaced?  I checked with my local parts supply and they say the Electronic Control Board, part number 8523297 is not available and the Range Touch Control Board, part number 9755076, substitute 6610333R is available.  I'm not sure how to proceed.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks, Joey Bullock

Hi Joey,
To tell if it's the sensor or board you will need to test the temp sensor at room temp with an ohm meter.
1. Disconnect the power
2. Gain access to the plug for the temp sensor
3. Disconnect the sensor plug
4. Take an ohm measurement across the two wires for the sensor.

The reading should be around 1.1k ohms (may read 1100)

If so, your sensor is likely good. If not, it could be a bad connection either at that plug or at the board. If the connections are good, most likely it would be the board. Not the touch panel, but the control board.
If it's discontinued, it leaves you with the option of having the board sent off to be rebuilt.

I hope that helps.
