Kenmore Range Model # 911.4698810 error code

I am getting an error code message F2 on the clock/oven control read out. I have pushed the Oven Control button and the audible beeps stops for approx 10 seconds and starts the error codes and audible beep again. Pressing cancel again will stop but only temporarily. All the elements and oven are working as well as fans. I have turned off breaker to stop the message.

Can you tell me some of the reasons for error code F2. The oven is older and the costs to get a service person to travel to the Outer Banks of NC may be too costly so any idea of the problem coiuld lead me to replace versus repair.

    The button I push to stop the audible beep is the Oven Cancel button not Oven control button as detailed above,



    I trying to determine if the error code is something simple or complex to fix to judge if I should just replace or try to repair.

  • kbunn684 Dec 03, 2008

    What is the function of the ERC sensor and where is it located? Can the oven run safely is disconnected

  • kbunn684 Dec 09, 2008

    I did not see a repsonse to my Dec 3 additional questions. Can you advise?

The F2 error code means you have a bad oven sensor ,,,, could also be the control board but i would replace the sensor 1st since its a lot cheaper then the control board / larry

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, an "F2" error code refers to a failed oven sensor. It would be the third item on this page and would look like the image below.
Kenmore Range Model # 911.4698810 error code - a434f18.jpg
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls postback how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    Before replacing any expensive parts get a new oven thermometer and
    check the oven for about 45 minutes at 350F to see if it's accurate.

Looks like the sensor or ERC could be bad, however check the connection for the sensor, it is recommended to cut out the plug in connector and wire nut the wires together with ceramic wire nuts, might want to check that first since this has already been replaced.

Turned oven to bake it keeps beeping with message "door"


Oven keeps beeping:
As there is no reprogramming of most control boards try this, disconnect the power and wait 30 seconds and then reconnecting the power.

If it's an "F1" fault code this generally implies an electronic oven control (EOC) failure. Disconnect the power, wait 30 seconds or longer and then reapply power. If "F1" returns upon power-up, replace the electronic oven control.
The oven control can be accessed and replaced from the rear of the control panel.

NOTE:Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the panel from behind the console.
If its an F2 ERROR CODE, The F2 error indicates an open circuit in the oven temperature probe.

Your range has a resettable thermostat in series with the oven temperature probe. If this thermostat opens the clock will display F2 and the oven won't heat.
You can reset the thermostat by pushing in the reset button on top of the thermostat.
Some ovens have an alarm that will beep continuously every six seconds to alert you that the oven is still on. Usually, a kitchen timer that you have set will cause the beeping, but occasionally it can be an error with the oven's settings. If it is the kitchen timer, you can simply push the "Kitchen Timer On/Off" button to end the continuous beeping. If that does not stop the beeping, it is probably beeping due to an error. You can turn the continuous beeping off but you may still need to troubleshoot the issue that is causing the beeping noise.

Hi

Here are the codes for you range:

F0 - E0 Analog to Digital Failure Disconnect for 30 seconds - if display re-appears - replace control F1 - E1Safety flip flopReplace Electronic Range Control/Clock (ERC) F2 - E0Shorted keypadReplace Electronic Range Control/Clock (ERC) F3 - E0Oven temperature sensor or oven temperature sensor fuse openedReplace oven temperature sensor or fuseF3 - E1Oven temperature sensor shortedReplace oven temperature sensor F3 - E2Oven too hotReplace oven temperature sensor F3 - E3Clean temp too hot Replace oven temperature sensorF5 - E0
F5 - E1 and E2 Door latch problemCheck door/latch switch, replace if necessary

Looks like yours is a bad oven control. There is a # at the end of yourmodel # 0-5 that will determine which control it takes. Once you havethat # you can look it up at http://www3.sears.com/ Looks like the part costs about $165.

Heartland metro f2 error code


bad sensor or bad computer board or clock assy.read out the sensor and find the tech sheet for your stove and it will tell you what the sensor should read out on,if the sensor is good then you have a bad computer board or clock assy.you can look up the error codes on the tech sheet too,look on the back of the stove,the papers are usually there on the back of the top console.F2 Oven temperature is too high 1. Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).
2. For SELF CLEAN models: check door lock operation.
3. Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit, not actual oven temperature

Oven not working Message E0-F2- showing


F2-E0 - Shorted Touch Pad (Keypad) - Check the connection between the touch pad (keypad) and control board (clock) to make sure it is secure.
Select the 'cancel' function and wait 60 seconds.
If error code reappears then replace the touch pad, or touch pad and control board (clock) if all one assembly.

Turn off the breaker and wait for 5 minutes. the follow this 3 steps:
--> After turn the breaker back on, go to the range and press "OFF", "OFF", "START", then click on the "clock set", there is a message on the display saying that do you want to delete the error, at this time press on the "START" again. And wait for a while until the everything on the screen disappear except the clock time. Hope this will fix yours. It fixed mine.

F3 and F2 Error Codes


If hitting clear/cancel won't clear it try unplugging and then plug it back in. My guess is the oven control is bad. Here are the fault codes for this model.

Failure
Code
Condition Check/Repair F0 or F1 Failed transistor in control If code cannot be cancelled, replace the Electronic Range Control (ERC) or touch pad F2 Oven over temp - exceeded 590F with door in unlocked position or 990F with door locked If actual temp condition occurred, look for welded relay contacts or high resistance connection or any cause in the oven temperature sensor circuit F3 Open oven temperature sensor circuit Measure oven temperature sensor circuit at oven temperature sensor (should be approx 1100 ohms at room temp); check for cut or pinched wire or loss of contact F4 Shorted oven temperature sensor circuit Same as above; check for melted connector or both leads shorted to ground F8 Component failure within Electronic Range Control (ERC) effecting temp processing circuits Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC) F9 Problem with door lock circuit such as pinched wire between Electronic Range Control (ERC) and door lock switch Check wiring and test operation of switch

Oven beeping f1 and f3


Here are the error codes for your range:

F1 Circuit board defective Replace control board F2 1. The oven temp has risen above 665F and the door is not locked or
2. The temp has risen above 965F with the door locked 1. Check oven temp in mode that failure occurred. Replace EOC (Electronic Oven Control) if above limits
2. Check 8-pin connector. Check and replace oven temperature sensor if necessary F3 Oven temperature sensor is open (above 3000 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for open wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F4 Oven temperature sensor is shorted (below 500 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for shorted wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F5 Internal watchdog circuit has detected a failure Defective EOC (Electronic Oven Control) F6 Shorted buttons Check push buttons and dome switches on control F8 Logic interrupted (lock motor switch sequence) Check door lock switches and wiring

Most likely problem is the oven temp. sensor. Should check around 1100 ohms at room temp. I would replace that first because it is the easiest and cheaper than an oven control.
