Sometimes we see an intermittent electrical connection due to oxidation of the contacts on the keypad membrane tail. This can be easily cleaned so you can check this before investing in a new keypad. I posted some pictures and the procedure on our website. Here's the link:

    It turns out that this is a common failure we are seeing come into the shop. It is a problem with the control board, which we can fix for you.

    Cleaning the connector worked fine for me. Anyone with a little mechanical apptiude should be able to do this easily. Thanks for the help!

Whirlpool ovens have an unusual design. there are more than 2 boards in these ovens. Suggest pull plug then remove top cover to allow access to boards. Check for loose connections and anything out of the ordenary. Most of the time it comes right. Has worked for me.

1. Check keypad connector for firm connection (keypad connects to control board).
2. Press CANCEL. If error code returns after 60 seconds, replace keypad (also called touch pad or membrane switch). Some models incorporate keypad in to control board as one unit. In this case, replace control board (also called ERC or clock). F2 - E6 Cancel key drive line open

Related: F2 E6 on Whirlpool RBD305PDS14 double oven - blank display


Equipment is Whirlpool double oven RBD305PDS14 built-in.  After a very stormy summer 2007, I thought a power surge may have zapped the control board.  Problem initially presented on display as error & fault "E6 F2"; simply pressing "Timer Off" would usually clear this error & fault code.

However, some months later, the display would often go completely blank followed by the beep sequence "short-long-short-short-short" (Morse code: dit dah dit dit dit).  No error & fault code would appear.  Pressing any keypad oven control did not work at all in this condition.  When power was cycled at the breaker panel, the usual "PF" with clock display did not appear.

[TURN OVEN POWER OFF AT BREAKER!!!]

After following the excellent information on "how to remove the control panel" posted in this forum, I first tested the "control panel thermal fuse" (refer to the tech sheet that should be behind the control panel once it is removed).  It showed a closed circuit.

I turned my attention to the "flexible" keypad connector cable (error & fault code "E6 F2" is a keypad or keypad connector problem; again, refer to tech sheet).  The control panel has a board mounted female connector with two tabs that may be gently pulled upward to release the flexible cable.

I cleaned the flexible cable contact area (it seats into the board mounted female connector) carefully with a Q tip and some isopropyl alcohol.  I reinserted the flexible cable and gently pressed down on the two tabs (noted above) on the board mounted female connector.  VERY GENTLY tug on the flexible cable to insure it is gripped by the connector.

After all of this monkey business, I re-mounted the control panel display panel on the oven and restored power.  So far, so good.  After applying power, the "PF" with clock display always appears.  I am able to set the clock and press "Start".  Over functions normally.  The clock displays as normal and I no longer observe the problem I described above.

BTW, I noted the incoming 240V has transient suppression (no surge protection, however).

Display is black


I had a very similar problem (I was observing the error & fault code "E6 F2", but not always.  I did always have the beeps.) on a Whirlpool RBD305PDS14 double oven built-in.  I spent time today (Oct. 21) and traced the problem down to the keypad flexible cable that connects the keypad to the oven control panel.

[ALWAYS WORK WITH POWER OFF!!!]

I cleaned the flexible cable contacts that seat into the board mounted female connector on the control panel board using a Q tip and isoproply alcohol.  This did the trick. 

(Elsewhere in this forum, there is information on how to remove the oven control panel and gain access to the control assembly.  I posted this information - keywords in subject: Whirlpool RBD305PDS14.)
