Question about Ovens
I was getting a F2E1 error on the display panel of my oven, which indicated a UL A/D error. When the control and circuit board were replaced, the new panel then displayed the F3E0 error which means 'Oven sensor opened' according to the Tech Sheet. What would be the fix from there? I have a KitchenAid Superba convection oven. After putting the turkey in this morning I obtained an F2E1 error code after about 1.5hrs of cooking. I let the oven sit or awhile then noticed if I hit "Bake" instead of convection the oven would come back on. What do I need to do? I use convection all the time....Jack
reset your breaker reprogram the clock try again what happend last time it was working self clean broiling etc

DOOR AND LATCH SWITCH DO NOT AGREE
DOOR LATCH NOT OPERATING.
PROCEDURE: Before proceeding, press OFF, OFF, START to enter
the Diagnostic mode and verify the error codes.
TO VERIFY DOOR SWITCH:
A. While in diagnostics, open the oven door. The second digit on the clock display
should toggle between “1” and “0” as the door opens and closes. When door is
closed display should show “1”, when the door is open display should show “0”.
If the second digit on the clock display did not toggle, go to step B.
If the digit did not toggle after replacing the door switch, go to step D.
If the digit did not toggle after replacing the door switch harness, go to step F.
B. Unplug oven or disconnect power.
C. Replace door switch. (If door switch is integral to the door latch motor
assembly, replace the entire door/latch motor assembly). Go to step H.
D. Unplug oven or disconnect power.
E. Check the integrity of the harness wires and connections between the
appliance manager and the door/latch assembly. Ensure there are no shorted
or pinched wires.
If the wiring harness is pinched or damaged, replace the door switch harness.
Go to step H.
If wiring harness is good, go to step H.
F. Unplug oven or disconnect power.
G. Replace appliance manager. Go to step H.
H. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
I. Plug in oven or reconnect power.
J. Press OFF, OFF, START to reenter the Diagnostic mode and complete checks.
Repeat step A.try this lighting may have knocked either the door switch or latch motor out

I had the same problem. It occurred when it was in a cleaning cycling. I fot the F3 Fasult and also the door remained locked. I let it cool down overnight and killed the power at the circuit breaker. I turned the power on and got a F3 alarm and the door remained locked. I took our the screws holding the control panel and pull it out far enough to give me access to the locking mechanisim. I took out the screw holding the locking latch to the motor. With the latch loose, iwas able to get move it out of the door lock. With the door now open I was able to get to the temperature sensor with was held with two sheet mmetal screws. The screw were impossible to get out, so I ground off the heads with a Dremel tool. I couldn't get the sensor wires out. So I pulled the unit out to get at the back sde. I cut the old sensor wires and was able to get in the hole to remove the screws with a pair of needle nose pliers. I installed a new sensor and with wire nuts attached the sensor wires to the computer wires. Make sure that you work the insulation in the hole to plug it back up. Put the oven back in and installed the sensor in the oven with two small sheet metal screws. . refasten the locking latch to the locking latch motor. turn on the power and everything was fine. I ohmmed out the old sensor and it was 180 ohms at room temperature. The replacement checked out at a 1000 ohms in accordance with the schematic for the control. By the way, the schematic was neatly folded on the control panel when I removed it I used a Whirlpool sensor Part No. 12001656 which was half the price of a Kenmore sensor. +

SOURCE: Set probe temperature
If i remember correctly i believe this is actually a wiring issue. you would need to turn the power off open the control panel. and look for a control board with the probe connection on it. there should be a tech sheet in the compartment to help you identify it however if it is the problem they would be purple wires on the connector that need to be reversed.

A separate oven thermometer is absolutely necessary in baking. Something similar to this would be cheap and easy. http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?order_num=-1&SKU=10161738
Or you could go for a digital one with a probe.
