Whirlpool Gold Super Capacity 465 Range Self Clean Not Working

10 posts in this topic

Model:  GS395LEHS

Serial:   RL2816674

 

A little background:  The first time we ever tried the self clean a few years ago, it hung up with  the "E7" error and we had to have it serviced to get the door open.  They "fixed" it, or so it seemed.

 

The last few times the self clean has run it only manages to clean the oven floor.  You can set if for 4-hours or whatever.  It will heat up really hot for about 30-40 minutes, and then just quit.  It won't let you open the door until the clean timer runs out.  And it's not clean. 

 

Help.


Let me add that if you are cooking at say 450 and lower the temp to 350, the oven will almost always just forget to hold at 350 and slowly cool down.  You have to shut it off and leave the door open for a few minutes before turning it back on to "reset" it.

The temperature sensor may be at fault.

It should read about 1100 ohms.

Self cleaning cycle causes many range failures.

:woot:

“My Rules”:

Rule #1) Don't ever use Self-Clean on any Oven.

Rule #2) If you're thinking about using Self-Clean, see rule #1.

Self-Clean uses nearly 1000F for 3 hours or more. burnin.gif

That can wreak havoc on Electronic Controllers and Connections.

 

yes, may be a bad Oven Sensor

OR may be a bad Oven Controller

Well, I understand that sentiment, but we paid for a self cleaning oven for a reason. So....

yes, but after the electronics get "old"

(and no longer under warranty)

the engineers are hoping you'll continue to use the Self-Cleaning cycle

No way it's getting clean otherwise.  I hung up my oven cleaning mitts a long time ago.

The technical information on your model doesn't show an "E7" fault.  Are any other faults displayed?  If both bake and broil functions ignite and light when selected but maintained temperature is an issue, then test the sensor as Brothers jumptrout and Reg advised.  If resistance is correct on sensor, then control may be at fault.  Refer to your Use and Care guide for temperature calibration procedure if needed.

Sorry, I have "E7" stuck in my head for some reason as I remember seeing it on the display (this was several years ago).  Maybe it was 7E?  Or D7 or 7D?  Not sure.  My apologies.


Maybe E1?  That's probably it!
