Frigidaire ERC Fault Codes

Many failure codes are caused by a faulty timer (also known as the Electronic Range Control). Sometimes, even when the failure code implies that another component has failed this can actually be a timer problem (whereby the timer is not displaying the correct fault code). If you are not sure whether the code you are seeing is due to a problem with the timer please call us, or send us an email, since we can help you determine whether the failure code is likely a timer problem or a problem with some other component. We can repair most timers so if you are sure your problem pertains to the timer (or ERC) please fill out a repair service request and send us your timer to be repaired.

Fault Codes Version 2

Fault CodeCondition/DescriptionResolution
F0 & F1 EOC (Electronic Oven Control) failureRecondition the EOC
F2Oven too hotCheck Bake function
F3Oven temperature sensor openCheck oven temperature sensor, 1100 ohms
F4Oven temperature sensor shortedReplace component
F5, 6, 7EOC (Electronic Oven Control) failureRecondition the EOC
F8Lock switchesCheck or Replace component

Fault Codes Version 3

Fault CodeCondition/DescriptionResolution
F0 & F1EOC (Electronic Oven Control) failureRecondition EOC (Electronic Oven Control)
F2Oven too hotLikely a bad oven temperature sensor (should read 1100 ohms) Possible bad EOC (Electronic Oven Control)
F3Oven temperature sensor openReplace oven temperature sensor
F4Oven temperature sensor shortedReplace oven temperature sensor
F5 or F6 or F7EOC (Electronic Oven Control) failureRecondition EOC(Electronic Oven Control)

Fault Codes Version 4

Fault CodeCondition/DescriptionResolution
F1Circuit board defectiveRecondition control board
  1. The oven temp has risen above 665F and the door is not locked or
  2. The temp has risen above 965F with the door locked
  1. Check oven temp in mode that failure occurred. Recondition EOC (Electronic Oven Control) if above limits
  2. Check 8-pin connector. Check and replace oven temperature sensor if necessary
F3Oven temperature sensor is open (above 3000 ohms)Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for open wiring between oven temperature sensor and control
F4Oven temperature sensor is shorted (below 500 ohms)Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for shorted wiring between oven temperature sensor and control
F5Internal watchdog circuit has detected a failureDefective EOC (Electronic Oven Control) - Have this reconditioned.
F6Shorted buttonsCheck push buttons and dome switches on control
F8Logic interrupted (lock motor switch sequence)Check door lock switches and wiring
