What does the error code F3-E2 mean on my Whirlpool stove?

The clock on the stove is not working and the oven is not working.

I had this error and followed the procedure to test the sensor. I disconnected the sensor and removed it from the oven. Reading was about 1100 ohms at room temperature. I was discouraged that the easy/cheap sensor was not the issue. Next step was to disconnect the connector from the ERC, reattach the connector and test where the plug attaches

test the sensor + wire harness. It still passed. I reassembled everything and put the oven back it belongs. Just for the hell of it, I tested the oven. It WORKED. No issue. Somehow the process of unplugging and reconnecting the sensor and the ERC wire harness made the problem go away. If you have this problem and your sensor passes the test, do NOT order a new ERC until putting the oven back together and giving it a try. This method fixed my oven at a cost of $0.
