Franke Oven Error Codes List and Fixes

You shouldn’t have any issues with your Franke Appliance, however there are some problems which can easily be fixed by error codes the table below. Whenever a failure is detected, a failure signal sounds and the display reads the belonging error code.

At multiple errors, the display priority is as follows: F3E3, F3E0, F4E0. The error message is automatically cleared when the failure is repaired. For EEPROM failure, the control has to be reset first, for all other failures this can happen during program run. At every failure, oven heating relay 1 is switched off.
