Hello Duane, I am happy to
assist you. Typically, error code F4 indicates a lockout error. Try resetting
the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. This
usually clears most false error codes. Wait approximately ten minutes and if
the error code does not clear, I would recommend contacting a professional to
proceed further. Most likely the EOC (electronic oven control) or the Lockout Control
Board on the appliance will need replacing.
The F4 error means that the oven temperature sensor is giving an open signal. Probably the oven temperature sensor needs to be replaced. However, sometimes, the wiring harness between the sensor and the control unit has a fault or the control unit (computer) is bad.

luvin, F4 is a shorted oven sensor. Under 950 ohms. Should read 1060 ohms at room temp. The sensor is located in the upper left hand corner of the rear oven wall. Remove the 2 screws and it will pull out enough to remove the connector. Catriver.
