Admiral 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.

F2Oven temperature too hotReplace relay board, if present, or oven temperature sensor (RTD). Check sensor harness.
F3 or F4Shorted or open oven temperature sensor (RTD)Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.
F5Watchdog and hardware conflictRepair/Recondition the clock (ERC).
F7Function key shorted or stuckReplace touch pad or if touch pad is part of the clock, repair/recondition the clock (ERC).
F8Analog / Digital problemRepair/recondition clock (ERC).
