Re: kenmore electric oven

F2 typically means an overtemperature condition. The cause could be welded relay contacts,a stalled or blocked cooling fan, blocked air flow to the rear of the unit or high resistance in the oven sensor leads or connectors. Check to see if there is any accumulation of dust bunnies in the fan. Do you remember if the fan has been running? There could also be a bad thermal switch. This tells the fan when to turn on and off. Unless you have some technical expertise, you may not feel comfortable checking on some of these causes. Be sure and turn off the power before poking around the wires and connectors in the top of the oven. There is usually a sheet of trouble shooting instructions in the top section of your oven which will give you some assistance. Good Luck.

This indicates the oven has reached an over temperature. You will first need to check the temperature probe for the proper reading. Refer to the tech sheet located somewhere on your stove. It should be around 1100 ohms. If this checks out good the ERC electronic range control will need to be replaced. Here is a couple links that should help

Oven was put on clean mode after about 1hour 30 min started peeping and display shows f-9

Hello-  The code indicated- F9 - indicates a fault in the door lock circuit. The usual part that fails is a little switch by the latch. The full-power extended cycle burned out the contacts. The part is available, but fairly difficult to replace, so consider service. If this is the only problem you have after 'self-cleaning', consider yourself lucky. This cycle is called 'self-destruct' by most techs.      Please acknowledge this post if the info is helpful- have more if needed.  Thanks- Ed

Electric Diagram for Kenmore Model 790

Has the oven run out of control or gotten too hot? The 790 series is made by Frigidaire and those fault codes are F0 to F8. F2 indicates the temperature sensor is reading too hot. Now with the double oven models, some manufactures add an extra digit to the fault codes to indicate which oven created the fault.

Your most likely fix is to replace the temperature sensor. The most probable locations for the wiring diagram is taped inside the bottom drawer, on the back or under side of the oven, or behind one of the panels on the back of the oven. This might tell you the room temperature resistance for the temperature sensor so you can test it with an ohmmeter and be sure that it is faulty. Try Appliance Parts Pros for replacement sensors.

Oven showing F2 fault

tire, if your model starts with 911. the code stands for an overtemperature condition. I would start with the temp sensor, this is the probe inside the oven cavity, part # 334300. You can ohm it out, should be around 1100 ohms at room temp. This is for model number starting with 911. back.
