Oven will not shut off

The oven get's real hot when we plug it in. The oven light is not on. It will not shut off. It is almost like it is in cleaning mode but we did not set it to do so. Any ideas wht may be causing this. The burners work ok. I can't remember what error number it did show. It was either F1 or F2.

Re: Oven will not shut off

I have a Kenmore gas built in oven, model number 790.30179400. It's 5 years old. I just used the oven and it wouldn't turn off. It seemed to behotter than the temperature I had it on. I have a fuse box in my house so I pulled the fuse out for the kitchen appliances to get it to turn off. When I put the fuse back in the oven keeps beeping with an F11 code flashing on the screen. I've had something in the panel replaced once before because it did this before when I used the self cleaning part. Could it be the same part again?

Amana Self-cleaning Oven flashes F2 and F3 and beeps. It doesn't get real hot. Although it does heat up not the appropriate temperature.

Hi, F2 error code on the Amana Oven means "Oven too hot" You have to replace Oven temperature sensor to fix it.
F3 error code means "Open or shorted oven temperature sensor". Yo also have to replace Oven temperature sensor to fix it.

Summarily, both code has to do with the temperature sensor which you need to replace...

I just cleaned by hand by magic chef wall oven and now I can't

Pilotless ignition means that a hot surface ignitor lights the oven burner. It does take a little bit of time to light the burner. Maybe 30 seconds. If you want to make sure it lights take the bottom panel out from the oven and observe the hot surface glow and the burners light. No real danger as the gas valve will only open after the hot surface ignitor has satisfied the gas valve. Let me know how it goes. ken

Amana EvenAir Convection Plus Self Cleaning Oven will not unlock.

My oven was locked and would not open. No lock light was on but the oven was clearly locked. F9 error when I hit certain buttons.

Try this. I unplugged the oven for about 5 minutes. Plugged back in. A LOCK light came on. Held down "Oven Cancel" for a few seconds. Door opened and lock light went off. No more F9 error when I hit those buttons.

Whirlpool RBS305PDQ11. After self-clean, oven won't heat up.

This seems to be a common problem with these ovens. The oven got too hot and the tco (Thermo cut off)tripped. This will have to be replaced. It is located behind the control board.
