F2E1, F3E0 Error Codes

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

    We have a slide in electric oven, we have had the same problem twice before. The repair man puts a code in to fix it , but he won't tell us what that code is. This morning it happened again! about 2hrs into cooking the turkey, we are extremely frustrated with this oven, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Brand new oven, used once. When I tried to turn it off, I got error code F2E1. Of course it happens on a Friday night.

PROCEDURE: Before proceeding, press OFF, OFF, START to enter
the Diagnostic mode and verify the error codes.
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

SOURCE: kenmore oven touch panel error codes f1 f3 f5 f7, oven failure

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.

I would suggest that you check the oven element, it sounds as though it is faulty to me.

Error F3E0

next time you see the error codes, write them down. F3E0 is open sensor error . I don't think you have an oven sensor error or a problem with the sensor. When the oven works the temperatures are good so the sensor won't be open. F0E0 is "No Error" and "No Action Required". It sounds like a loose or a bad connection in the control section. There is no connection between the oven door and the control panel. Opening and closing the door to clear error codes or to get the oven to work is jarring the control and the loose or bad connection to the point it makes contact and works. Start with the ribbon connector and remove and reinsert it. You can also use a pencil eraser to gently clean the end of the ribbon connector. Remove and reinstall the wire harness connectors on the boards. Make sure all the pins in the connector are in place and not starting to come out the back of the connector.

Wall oven stopped working

Good Morning Peggy, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Typically error code F1 indicates that your range has detected an issue with the runaway temperature (overheating). Try reprogramming your appliance 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) will need replacing. Hopes this help!

F4 code is displayed and oven beeps continuously

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.

Cadco oven wont start ...give error code pre and por

It looks like the controller board is shot. Get on the web with Cadco and request a complete parts list for the controller circuits. Meanwhile, pull the cover off the stove controls and blow in clean, dry compressed air over the circuit boards. Chances are you have a short or two in the circuitry!

My oven gives error code f2e1, how do i solve it

F2 E1 means that the keypad cable is unplugged.
Gain access to the control panel and keypad. Check keypad connector for firm connections. Keypad connects to the control board. Press CANCEL. If error code returns after 60 seconds, the keypad needs to be replaced. If your control board and keypad are incorporated as one unit, then the control board needs to be replaced.

Err F2E1 stuck/shorted key

The control panel is either faulty and needs to be replaced. One can be purchased at repairclinic website or partselect.

Or you can dismantle it, and clean everything with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab

F2e1 error message

It is the only ribon cable coming off of the control panel to the control board. This error could also indicate that the control panel is bad.
