Intermittent F4 fault code

About 15 years ago, this unit had the same problem. The repair receipt shows the technician "reset sensor plug". The plug wires looks clean. I pulled the temp sensor and I am getting 1077 Ohms at about 68 degrees. I assume this is the correct reading as far as I can determine. Do I need a new sensor or am I overlooking something? Thanks John

    Today, the house is a bit warmer and the sensor is reading 1098 Ohms. If I grasp the sensor for a few seconds, I get 1100 Ohms. I suspect it is working properly.. What's next?

John , these models use a self-resetting, disc type thermal cut out in the sensor circuit. The normally open disc is wired in parallel with the sensor. When tripped, the thermal cut out shorts the sensor circuit resulting in an F4 failure code. Since you are reading the proper ohms in the sensor I believe you are ok there. They do have a kit WB24K5048 to correct this problem. The kit contains a higher rated thermal cut out, an insulation barrier and instructions. Catriver...post back.

My oven is comimg up with the F4 fault message?


Hello Rose,
Hello,
The error code F4 are code that mean their is a problem with the oven tempature sensor and that sensor is uncappable of telling the control board what the temp. is in the oven. This is what the sensor looks like,oldtech2332_20.jpgTo check the sensor,unplug it and place meter leads into the white plastic plug at the end and check for between 1060-1100 ohms of resistiance when its good.


The F4 error code is for sensor that has a open circuit,so instead of the 1060-1100 of a good it the display on the meter will show infinate resistiance ( the meter display will not change)

If at room tempature when checking the oven sensor if the display shows anything other that 1060-1100 ohms the sensor is going to be the problem and needs to be replaced.

F4 error fisher & paykel nautilus dishwasher sometimes this error comes up and it seems to occur about 10 minutes from the end of the cycle. it doesn't happen all the time. the user guide does not...


F4 is a heating error- dishwasher has not reached temperature in allocated time. If intermittent fault, problem is usually with electronic board, which has temperature sensor attached. Sometimes the wiring to the control board burns out and can give intermittent false readings causing F4 error. Disconnect from power, remove front panel (4 screws down each side). You can now see wiring going to control board- check for burnt wires. Also check temperature sensor (small square with two purple wires) is stuck to inner door panel- if this is not stuck to inner panel, temperature sensor will not work properly. If in any doubt, call in the experts!!

There could be only one sensor causing all these problems.Usually when one sensor goes bad the other ones will get a bad reading and they will read a fault code.Looks like not to many miles on it.Its worth the fix because those cars run forever.Hope this Helps you and Have a great day

1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor gotsta be within spec or it will cause the F1 code. As an example of being out-of-spec, the ERC will generate an F1 fault code when the sensor shows 1650 ohms during a time-of-day mode. This is equivalent to 350°F in the oven. The resistance isn’t high enough to generate an F2 code (runaway temp) or an F3 or F4 code (shorted/open sensor circuit). The ERC monitors the sensor circuit after a heat cycle and expects the resistance to drop back to 1050-1100 ohms. The fault code is generated when this doesn’t happen. Checking the sensor circuit means also checking the harness, harness connections and the sensor itself.
2. If the oven sensor circuit checks okay, then turn your inquisitive eyeballs to the touchpad. If the range has a separate touchpad/keyboard, the keypad may have moisture that is shorting several circuits simultaneously. If the F1 code is given immediately (instead of during or after a heat cycle), remove the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the ERC after clearing the F1 code. If the F1 code does not return in five minutes, then cast a suspicious gaze upon the touchpad/keyboard. Shorts may be caused by using an ammonia-based glass cleaner. The touchpad surface will absorb ammonia-based cleaners that are sprayed directly on the glass surface. When heat is applied, the surface material can break down causing shorts. If you’re gonna use ammonia-based cleaners on your control panel, then you should spray it on the rag and then wipe the touchpanel –don’t spray directly onto the surface of the touchpad.
3. On Amana ranges with a rotary temperature dial, be sure that the knob is in the OFF position when performing tests.
4. If these tests all check good, then replace the ERC.

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... :)
