Temperature probe in Kitchenaid YKEMC308 stopped working

Hi, Our YKEMC308 temperature probe worked for years but recently stopped. Now when plugged in and temperature set, the display takes about 20 seconds and then says that the probe is at set temperature and turns the oven off. Any ideas?

F10 oven code frequently beeps,often after cooking is over and oven is coolind down at different temperature settings tempermental some times it works sometimes it does not.


The "F10" error code caused by the runaway temperature.
The first thing I would check is the resistance across the oven temperature probe (aka oven temperature sensor) terminals at the EOC (electronic oven control) plug.
It suppose to be about 1100 Ohms at the room temperature.
If the resistance at the EOC plug is wrong, then measure the oven temperature probe resistance at the probe plug.
If it's wrong - replace the oven temperature probe. It's better to hardwire it, using a high temperature ceramic wire nuts.
If the readings at the EOC and at the oven temperature probe plug are different - check the wire harness between the oven temperature probe and the EOC.
If there is nothing wrong with the oven temperature probe resistance - replace the EOC.

Temp probe indicator stays on


sounds like your probe connection may be shorted. Can you inspect the probe itself, and perhaps do a test for continuity with an ohm meter? Also, you might be able to disable the probe in the menu settings, and run it on manual, just for a test.

Do you still have the user's manual for this unit?

I have a Kenmore smooth cooktop electric range. It is about 3 years old. Recently i used the self clean function, and since then I can't get the oven door to unlock and I'm getting a F5 code on the read...


Hi,

Press the "Off/Clear' button to cancel anything on the display, and reset the oven. This is a soft reset and will simply get you out of any program you have started. If the problem still persist,
Perform a hard reset. Pull the plug out of the wall power supply, and wait a moment. Plug the oven back into the wall power supply to reset any anomalies with the oven memory.

The microwave displays F-6 and won't stop unless it's unplugged. Needless to say, it can't be used.

Takes 20 minutes to preheat.


The unit seems to be working ok....usually the temp probe will reach temp in 5 minutes and it will beep....i sugg for cust to let sit for 15-20 mins for precise cooking.

Kenmore Microwave Displays Error Code Reading "Prob"


I would bet that the temperature probe socket has some accumulated grease, etc. in it which may be changing the resistance of the contacts, making the control board think the probe is installed but defective.

First, please unplug the oven before you investigate.

The best idea is to clean the probe socket contacts.

You'd need to remove the outer cover, and the probe socket should be located on the right side of the chassis.

If you can cut thin strips of fine sandpaper and work them back and forth between the contacts, that's the best way.

You can plug & unplug the probe while observing the socket to see how the contacts work.

Your socket may be sealed, and that would possibly require you to carefully take it apart. That's a bit of a gamble, as it may crack due to age.

Another idea is to take a wad of paper toweling, hold it with your right hand over the back of the probe socket, and spray contact cleaner or WD40, etc. into the opening of the probe jack from inside the oven cavity with your left hand.

Then plug & unplug the probe several times, wipe any spills and try the oven again.

If the probe unplugs form the control board, you could disconnect it and try the oven.

Let me know how it goes.

I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED IN GE 'S HELP WHERE THEY WANT TO CHARGE 9.99 DOLLARS FOR HELP ON MY MICROWAVE WHICH IS OUT OF WARRANTY. IT IS ALMOST 2 YEARS OLD


Hi AGAIN DIBARTRK

Now that you have indicated the make of your oven....... the fault codes for GE microwaves are as follows. I have given you all of them for you future reference. :)

F1 - ( open thermal sensor ), will occur below 190�F of cavity temperature within 15 minutes of starting convection, combination or roast cook.
F2 - ( shorted thermal sensor ), will occur if a shorted thermal sensor is detected continuously over 5 seconds on convection, combination or roast cooking.
Note: it will take a minimum of 5 minutes of convection run time before F1 or F2 code will be displayed if the thermal sensor is shorted/open.
F3 - ( shorted key panel ), will occur if a shorted key panel is detected continuously over 60 seconds.
Note: It will take a minimum of 1 minute of run time before the F code will be displayed.
F4 ( open humidity sensor ), will occur if humidity sensor is detected as being open continuously over 5 seconds.
F5 - ( shorted humidity sensor ), will occur if humidity sensor is detected as being shorted continuously over 5 seconds.
Note: It will will take a minimum of 15 seconds after the magnetron is energized before the F4 or F5 code will be displayed if the humidity sensor is shorted/open. Also the unit must be plugged into a 120 volt outlet for at least 5 minutes before sensor is checked, this also applies after the humidity sensor has been changed. Before checking operation of new sensor allow init to be plugged in for at least 5 minutes.
F6 - ( shorted temperature probe ), will occur if temperature probe is detected as being open or not plugged into the receptacle. If probe is plugged in and "ProbE" is on display, check probe for continuity with ohm meter.

they are all different for different brands... It is much easier to get a solution from FixYa you actually tell us what sort of equipment you are having trouble with. :) Do I get a FixYa rating now... :)
