Question about Ovens

1 Answer

Oven explodes! after turning on the oven( by rotating control counterclockwise), we wait about a minute and there is a mild puff sound and the oven door opens about five inches. this is of course scarey. happening about two weeks. is the ignitor the problem as with other ovens in the past, but they just didn't ignite at all? of course if it is not the ignitor i'm not going to attempt a fix, nor will we turn on the oven again!

Why do our element thermostats need replacing every few years?


When you replace the elements , sometimes, almost every time. The dial has to be adjusted. Have a oven thermometer? Put on 350 wait 15 minutes, see where it is. Remove top of stove, use the bar to hold up. Should be a very small screw on back of dial , turn clockwise or counterclockwise . Adjust til correct. You may have a part number sticker or similar sticker covering it.

Oven temp heats higher than set


The control board is bad. One of the relays has fused and you will need to replace the control board.

F-24 goes on after oven on, and oven starts to beep


The F24 fault code is caused by a closed/stuck/shorted contact on the control panel for more than 60 seconds, such has someone leaning against the controls or objects hanging in front of the controls.

Solution: Touch OVEN OFF, or turn power OFF at the circuit breakers, wait 3 minutes and then turn it back on. If the condition persists the touchpad/control panel will likely need to be replaced. Turn the power off in order to stop the beeping.

An F10 error just appeared on my Kenmore Oven. What is that?


The F10 error code indicates a runaway temperature condition. If your oven is overheating, unplug the power cord for a few minutes. When plugged back in if the oven is still overheating, you will need to have the temp sensor & control checked.

My oven says F7 with a constant beeping sound every minute on the minute. How do I get it to stop and what does it mean?


Hi,
The code can be caused by a faulty keypad or a Stuck keypad which may mean relay is turned on. Determine if problem is with the Key Panel or Control by:
1. Pushing CLEAR/OFF pad.
2. Disconnecting Ribbon Cable from control and waiting at least 32 seconds to see if Code recurs

If code recurs, problem is in the control. Replace control.

If code does not recur, problem is with the Key Panel. :

Why does the Oven take so long to light?


It sounds like it might be a sticking gas control valve for the oven or the hot surface igniter for the oven might be weak. You will need to turn the oven on and off completely several times until the problem happens. When I say completely I mean turn on the oven control and watch the igniter start to glow. Then when the oven burner comes on(should within a minute) shut of the oven control and wait for the igniter to stop glowing completely and burner to shut off completely. Then repeat the process again. If you try it about 10 times and nothing happens then the problem will be difiicult to identify. If you turn on the oven control and the igniter comes on but the gas burner does not then try giving the gas control valve(located in brolier/storage compartment) a tap with a wrench. If the burner suddenly comes on then the control valve was sticking. Try repeating the shut down/turn on process again. If it does not do it again you may have fixed the problem...if it does you will need to remove the igniter and test it with an ohm meter(should read at least 500 to 800 ohms). If the igniter is testing good and glowing brightly then the gas control valve would be the suspected problem. And remeber to be very careful when doing these testing procedures so you do not hurt yourself.

Control panel for oven functions has gone blank with occasional beeping sounds


The control panel may have a power issue. Replacing the board fixed my problem. It looks like 4 resistors and a ZD1 diode heat up and fail. The U1 chip could also be a problem. If you replace the controller it will cost around $225. Be careful of the key pad ribbon cable. They break easily. Another $186. Good luck.
