I just had to share this little experience with you all.

Picture this, its Christmas day, the packages are all open and the kids are off playing with all of their new toys and enjoying their sugar induced high. My wife is busy preparing the feast which includes a beef tenderloin. She set the oven to preheat when all of a sudden the oven starts beeping F3 and shuts off. A quick check on the internet and F3 means the thermostat is shorted and after numorous attempts it just won't stay on.

My wife says, "I wish the trailer was put back together so I could use the oven in it." Since I am in the middle of a full gut and restore of my Boller 1700 all of the cabinets and appliances are stacked in the garage waiting to be fixed and reinstalled, I immediately dismiss the thought. After 15 or so minutes of cussing about what to do I went to the garage and thought maybe we can make this work. I managed to find the regulator and hoses, hooked them up to the tanks then attached the 1/4" copper line from the stove to the regulator and presto, we had an oven.

So here I am out on the freezing floor of the garage on my hands and knees cooking the Christmas dinner in our Boler oven. All worked out fine and the beef was done perfectly, the garage never smelled better either.

Good save!

We have a similar problem with our range in our home... but our code is F-6... and it usually sets off a beeping alarm at 2 AM.

Can you buy a MANUALLY controlled gas oven????

Follow the link to diagnose your code. Depending on your brand an F6 isn't good or cheap.

Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes
F6 = Missing AC signal
Replace clock assembly (also called the ERC)
Did that twice under warrantee.
Very expensive, now that the unit is out of warrantee.
We just leave it unplugged until we need to use the oven. It works long enuf to cook anything... But if we forget to unplug it again after we are finished baking, it will scream at us... usually at 2 AM.
