Product Description

Limit Thermostat Specifications

An oven thermostat is a switch that opens and closes in response to the temperature it senses. It is typically found in the control panel, where a liquid-filled temperature-sensing bulb senses and maintains the internal oven temperature by cycling heat on and off. This safety thermostat trips when the controls are not working properly, or if the range gets too hot. If your oven will not start or is not heating properly, there could be an issue with the limit thermostat, and you should look to replace the part. NOTE: Remember to disconnect the power from your range before you start this repair. This is an electrical appliance that can potentially hold a 220 volt charge.

Oven becomes very hot, locks the door and reads F3 E2
For model number RBS245PRB03
Hi Charlie, Thank you for your question. The F3 E2 error code stands for: Oven Temperature Sensor (RTD) or Warming Drawer Defect - Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD). I would suggest testing your temperature sensor with a multi meter. If that part is working then it may be your electronic control board that is the issue. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

At first it started flashing f3. Then it would turn heat off flash f3 and i would have to turn off, restart. Bake for a few minutes flash f3 and was either not heating or temperature changed. Do i need part ps11748765 to fix? Is there a video showing installation?
For model number GBS277PDB11
Hi Margaret, Thank you for your question. The F3 error code is referring to an open oven temperature sensor. The temperature sensor measures the temperature inside the oven. If your oven is too hot, not heating evenly, is not heating enough when baking, or simply will not start, you could have a faulty temperature sensor. A faulty temperature sensor can be a fire risk. If your sensor is not working properly, you should look to replace it straight away. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

I performed a self-clean and when finished the door opens, only if I lift it up. The elements will no heat.
For model number RBS275PDQ6
Hello Mac, Thank you for the question. I suggest testing the Oven Sensor, PartSelect Number PS11742569. Testing the temperature sensor probe on your oven is easy. With the sensor at room temperature, measure the resistance between the two prongs at the end of the sensor connector. The resistance of the sensor should read approximately 1080 – 1090 ohms at room temperature.

For years have bought papa murphy's take and bake pizza. About 8 months ago bought one. Cooked it, bottom of dough not cooked, top was. Sunday baked son chicken wings, got up to check, oven panel says e2 and f3. Would like to fix this. Do you know which part? I'm hoping it's not two issues. Bottom of pizza not cooked and what the digital says. After 20 minutes or so, pushed on and it worked fine. I don't believe temperature is correct. Thank you. Mike
For model number Whirlpool RBS305PRQ00
Hi Mike, thank you for your question. That error code indicates that there is an issue with your appliance oven temperature sensor. First I would say test your elements with a multi meter to see if they are working correctly or not. They should be reading between 0 - 50 ohms to be working correctly. The other part you should check would be your oven temperature sensor. That can also be tested with a multi meter and should be reading between 1000 - 1100 ohms. If those three parts are fine however, then the issue may be in your control board. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Our oven was not heating. I troubleshot the problem with a digital multi meter to the limit thermostat, as it was open. I ordered the replacement part #wp9759243. I install the part, turned the circuit breaker on and instantly the broiler and bake elements came on. I tested the limit thermostat replacement part and found this device had 0 ohms. I ordered another part and the same part had 0 ohms. I though i should see some resistance between the terminals. I went on several forums to research and found two (2) different opinions; one says i should measure between 1k ohms and 1.1k ohms and another opinion says i should see 0 ohms. I am confused as i believe i should see some resistance between the terminals. Have i received two (2) defective parts? Please help. Thank you.
For model number RBS275PDB14
Hello Ernie, Thank you for the question. The Limit Thermostat should ready closed for continuity. This could be an issue with the Oven Control Board, PartSelect Number PS11745873. Hope this helps!

For model number RBS245pdt14
Hello Ralph, thank you for your question. There are a few parts we would recommend testing to determine the problem. They are the Limit thermostat PartSelect Number: PS11747249, and temperature sensor PartSelect Number: PS11748765. If these parts are tested and are ok, the issue would be with the main electronic control board. I hope this helps.

Oven comes on but will that heat up
For model number Rbs245pdt12
Hi John, Thank you for your question. I believe that you are saying that your appliance will not heat? There are really only a few parts that would cause that. I would suggest checking this thermostat, your temperature sensor, and your element first. All of those parts can be tested with a multi meter to determine if they are bad or not. If they are all fine, then unfortunately it may be your electronic control board that is the issue. I hope that helps. If that was not your question, I do apologize. If you could resubmit your question with some more information, we would definitely be able to help. Good luck with your repair.

I replaced the temperature sensor (top oven was overheating) and the oven worked for 3 cooks. Last night it went hot and locked the door. Bad sensor or other part?
For model number RBD305PDT14
Hello Daniel, Thanks for your question. Using a multi-meter, we would advise testing the thermal fuse and the door latch for continuity. If they do not show continuity, replace them. I hope this helps.

Received error e2 f3 for oven temp sensor. I pulled the sensor and tested with a multimeter. 1134 ohms and in range. Tested heating element. 35ohms and in range. Made me think control board. Replaced control board, still not heating. Went ahead and replaced the oven temp sensor. Still not heating. What would be the next thing to test? Thermal fuse or limit thermostat?
For model number RBS305PDS14
Hi Shawn, thank you for your question. There are a few parts that could cause this issue in your appliance. You should take a look at your oven temperature sensor as well. That can also be tested with a multi meter and should be reading between 1000 - 1100 ohms. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Door is locked and no power after doing self cleaning cycle. Is this the thermal fuse or something else?
For model number IBS550PWS01
Hello James, thank you for writing. First try pressing the CANCEL/OFF key to do a latch reset. Wait about 30 seconds and then try to open the door. You can also try cutting the power at the circuit breaker for a few minutes then turn the power back on to reset the unit. Is there any sort of error code being displayed? We hope this helps and please feel free to get back in touch with us if this does not resolve the issue.

No heat after cleaning oven
This built-in oven was slid out of it's space and set on a box. I removed the back cover with nut driver and located the safety overload device. removed nuts and used pliers to remove wires and replace them. The power must be off to do this repair.Replaced the cover and slid back into place. This could be a lot more difficult if your power cord or gas line is not long enough to make it out of your wall space. Or of your oven is attached well to the frame.

Oven wouldn't heat after a cleaning cycle
Recieved the part promptly. From looking at the diagrams, we knew the overload thermostat was located on the back of the oven. We removed the screws, brackets, etc, slid the oven out, which for us was fairly easy as it's an under counter oven. Located the thermostat, removed it, replaced the new one, connected two clip wires, replaced the oven, turned the power back on and it works like a champ. Total cost was under 50 bucks.

Upper oven bake and broil elements fail to heat when keypad entries made and indicating correctly
Replacement of the thermal overload safety thermostat very straight forward after sliding unit out, killing power and removing two covers. Tested both old and new and both show continuity (= good). Installed new, restored power and tested for proper operation. Didn't happen. Replaced original and now have new as spare. Now suspect the double line break relay on electronic control board is failed and source of problem. It is common to both elements and immediate before the suspected thermostat in circuit.

Oven would not heat
This is a drop in range so I had to remove the range and set on a dolly. Turn the dolly around and acess the THRMST-FIX that needed replaceing, it was open. put the range back in its place and could still use the rest of stove until I received the parts 2 days later .
Pulled the range out put the new THRMST-FIX in put the range back together and put the range back in place and it has worked ever since.

oven wouldn't heat after self-cleaning the oven
The website and diagram of my oven helped me know exactly what was wrong and where to locate the problem. I simply removed the oven door and the trim, pulled the oven out of the wall. After removing the back panel I located the part and put in the new part. Then reversed the procedure.

Neither bake nor broil elements came on
Removed four trim pieces; removed four wood screws holding oven in cabinet housing; slid oven out (weighs about 150 lbs and takes two people and a bench to rest oven on. Oven will pull all the way out but not much further because of the electric cord.); Removed back sheet metal cover (bunch of small metal screws); removed wires from bad unit, unscrewed the bad unit and screwed in the replacement unit.

No heat to oven, all other controls appear to function
Oven stopped heating after attempting a self cleaning cycle. Problem turned out to be failed thermal fuse component. This is an easy repair and well worth the attempt given the replacement cost of the oven.

First step was to locate and shut off the two circuit breakers supplying power to the oven. Then I locked the panel to ensure someone didnt re-engage the breakers while I was working on the unit. (Lock out / Tag out).

Second step was sliding the oven out of the cabinet - this unit is located below a cooking top and was just the perfect height to allow a furniture dolly to be used to support the oven as I slid it out.

The unit is 'hard wired' (i.e. no power plug) so it can only be pulled out so far from the cabinet, but there was sufficient reach to allow access to and removal of the sheet metal cover at the rear of the oven to expose the thermal fuse and the read wiring. I proceeded with care, assuming the power was still on and once the terminals of the thermal fuse were exposed I performed a voltage measurement to ground on each side of the fuse to ensure power was in fact off.

Then I used an insulated pliers to gently remove the wire harness at each side of the fuse, and once the wires were removed I performed a continuity check of the suspect fuse, and confirmed it was an open circuit (i.e. failed).

Removal of two more screws allowed the fuse to be removed and the new fuse was installed, reversing the procedure.

This was followed by replacement of the rear sheet metal and finally sliding the oven back into its place in the cabinet using the furniture dolly. This is a single oven but still very heavy and has some sharp sheet metal edges likely to cause cuts if not handled with care so the dolly and a second set of hands (and good gloves) are nice to have.

Finally, after inspecting the oven door gasket and other air vents around the outside of the oven to identify suspect causes of the overheating event that tripped the fuse, the air vents above and below and within the door were cleared of dust-bunnies and other debris that had collected, possibly causing interference with the air flow that cools the area in between the oven and the cabinet. This blockage may have been the root cause of the fuse failure - i.e. the air did get too hot back there and had the fuse not tripped it would have been dangerous. The door gasket looked fine although its also an easy replacement and does not require oven removal.

The new part fit perfectly - it was a different design than the original part that shipped with the oven but appears to function perfectly so no complaints. The trip temperature is identical to the OEM part based upon the nomenclature on the back of the OEM and the replacement fuse part.

Unlocked the power panel and turned on the two breakers to the oven, set the clock and checked operation and its functioning great now.

Have not run a self cleaning operation since the repair but that is the next step and now that those door vents are clear I suspect that the fuse wont trip again.

Lesson Learned: Check those vents for obstructions.

Similar oven selling at discount because its the end of the model year is now priced at over $1100. Fixed our unit for $50 and the added cost of a $20 furniture dolly that I already wanted to buy.

Give this repair a try its a piece of cake and well worth the effort.

every time I would try to do the self clean mode on my drop in range the thermostat blows. Last time it was still under warranty. I took the part number from the repair man's invoice to order the new part.
My husband took the back off and replaced it. The repairman suggested pulling the range out into the floor to run the self clean mode. I have owned several such ranges and have never had to do that and won't now. Easy Clean Oven Cleaner will be the next thing I use.
