Customer Question

Whirlpool oven keeps coming up dial showing 8888 flashing. internal light only showing but no circu fans or temp comes on. We did not get an instruction instruction book from the builder. We understand the units commenced manufacture in June 2012 and we have already had a service call about 6 months ago to repair a faulty door. Appreciate your help. John XXXX XXXXX

Hi This is usually not an error and means the unit may have just temporarily glitched.

Please turn off the mains to the unit for 5 full minutes Then turn the circuit breaker back on and attempt to set the clock. If this works Great!

Then please rate my service.

If it doesn't work, please reply to me with anything the oven will do.

Thank you
