Question about Kenmore 96422 / 96424 / 96429 Electric Kitchen Range
I have a Kenmore 362.75481890 self cleaning oven and when I try to turn it on it automatically goes to clean for 3.00 hours it I continue to move the oven button I eventually get an error (F3) code. After doing research on this particular code it stated that I may have to replace the thermostat sensor and test it with a meter which I did and got 1090 reading on it at room temperature, I'm assuming that the reading was ok. I tthen purchased a new igniter and installed it and to this very moment still getting the F3 error
Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I usually do all the cooking please help!!
Thank you in advance
The F3 E2 error code indicates that the electronic oven control board in the range senses an over-temperature condition in the oven.
This can be caused by a failed temperature sensor probe, a wiring problem between the sensor and the control board, or a failed electronic oven control board.
If the oven is apparently not overheating when this error code appears, then your likely failure is the temperature sensor probe.
If the oven is overheating, then you likely have a failed electronic oven control board due to a stuck relay not cycling the oven heating element off properly.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
