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.

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.

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

I can't find my model number on my Sears Kenmore Gas stove. Several times now the stove has beeped then kicked out with EO and F2 showing in the clock area. The stove was bought in 2000 or 1999. Can you...


Hi,

The tag with the model number is usually located on the rail that is visible with the lower drawer open.

The code you are getting is an indication that the oven got too hot or the control thinks the oven got too hot. It is usually do to one of two parts that have failed.

If the oven did not get too hot and you got the failure code, then the sensor would be bad.

If the oven did get too hot then the ERC (electronic range control) is bad.

Dispaly E0 F2


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.

Kenmore Classic Grille model 911-469-8813 error F2


Over time I have had to replace the control module at the front of the oven. It gets baked by the oven heat, and unfortunately costs hundreds of dollars to replace. I have avoided further failures by making sure the downdraft exhaust fan is ALWAYS on when the oven is on. This seems to keep it cool enough.

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.
