we cleaned my kenmore elite oven. now it won't work. when i try and turn it on i get an F23 error. do you know how to get the oven/stove working again?


Error code F 23 indicates the control detected a problem with the communication link or can be generated as a result of irregularities in the power supply or usage.


  • The error code F23 can often be resolved by removing power to the appliance for a minute and then restoring the power.
  • By unplugging the appliance it allows the control to receive a fresh supply of power. This in turn will clear the controls memory of any irregularities it may have received from the power supply. Once refreshed the error should no longer be displayed.
  1. Unplug the unit or turn the circuit breaker off for 60 seconds.
  2. Restore the power to the appliance by plugging it back in or turning the circuit breaker back on.
  3. Check to see if the error code is still displayed on the range.
  4. Run the appliance in the cycle that initially caused the error or attempt to turn on broiler.
If the error code is displayed, then service is needed. The unit should be inspected by a qualified appliance repair technician.

Should you choose to use Sears, the number to schedule a repair tech is: Sears Repair Department 1-800-469-4663.

F-1 showing


It is a pretty common annoyance for many, some are able to disconnect the power and it seems to go away, but if it continues f-1 means EOC (Electronic Oven Control) Failure so if it persists it needs to be replaced. Maybe you had a powersurge recently or it could be just worn out
