Kenmore Oven C970-515127 oven wont start

Oven won't start. Tried several times to start oven in normal fashion, using bake or broil button, then cook time button, but just keeps beeping and showing F31 on digital display. Tried unplugging for a few seconds, but did not work.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Here is some wisdom for understanding F1 fault codes.

In some models, there are subcodes that make diagnosis even easier.

Here's a simple explanation of what's going on and how to troubleshoot:

The F1 code indicates that:


a. The electronic range control (ERC) is sensing heat in the oven when in a time-of-day (i.e., not cooking) mode.

b. The ERC is receiving information to run multiple heat functions simultaneously.


Although different components (depending upon the model) could generate the code, simple and straightforward testing using your ohm meter is all you gotta do to test for it.

1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor has to 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 continue to get code F11 on my Kenmore Elite Gas Range Oven and therefore, I am unable to unlock / open my oven door. I have pressed and held down the STOP button as well as the oven light button.


Your model number should be much longer than 790 30 Open drawers and doors to look for the whole model number around the frame.

With the whole model number you can get more information at Sears Parts Direct. There are parts diagrams and user manuals and you can order parts.
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/



This site gives instructions for repairing F11 and recommends checking the temperature probe and tells how to do it.

My frigidaire fef368gch was working fine and then the oven just stopped baking. It will broil but not bake. What causes this and how do I fix it?


Good Morning Shari,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire range, model# FEF368GCH, and the bake element not working while the broil element is. I suggest giving your appliance a hard reset, by shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 2-3 minutes. When power is restored, you will have to reset the clock by entering in the time and pressing start. Start a bake cycle, and if you notice that the bake element is still not working, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

E1234 flashing


I noticed the same thing with my Samsung oven. The repair tech was just here and figured out (with Samsung phone support's help) that it is normal behavior when the divider is inserted. You will notice, if you look carefully, that the E1234 is showing in some pictures in the manual when it talks about using the oven with the divider in. Bottom line is you can ignore it.

Keys on the oven are not working so I can not start oven bake


Thanks for posting to Fixya I will be helping you today. You have posted that you have a Kenmore Elite 44173 electric cooktop with a problem. However, you also mention your are having trouble with the oven not working. This post maybe categorized wrong but I will try to answer you question for both a range and oven control.

Sometimes on a cooktop customers will lockout the controls on accident while cleaning. Usually there is a button on the control that you hold for 4 seconds +/- and there is a little simbol of a padlock next to it or you might have to check the owners manual.

Lastly, Ranges may also have a lock out feature that the customer must press 4 seconds too unlock. On select models controls may also be locked out by putting their oven into sabbath mode. Usually the display will indicate a "SAB" to alert that this feature has been set.

*In general the above instructions should help if your unit is locked out.

Happy Holidays!

I have a frigidaire gallery series, electrolux oven, we used self cleaning mode, worked great. Problem is the oven doesn't work know, broiler works, just the oven wont turn on.


often the bake ignitor will burn out during or right after a self clean cycle.You can confirm this by either measuring voltage at ignitor while oven is on.Alternate method remove ignitor ,check continuity, If the ignitor is coming on but no gas,replace ignitor it is weak.Hope this helps ,please take the time to rate my response :)

Oven won't come on unless you press bake and immediately hit arrow to 400 degrees. Can this be fixed


Yes, this is most likely a thermostat problem. If you have tried every temp level below 400 and it will not come on until you reach 400 on the dial, then you most likely have a temp sensor switch/ thermostat problem.
I had to assume alot of things here:
1. It is an electric oven.
2. Once you get the oven to start at the magic number and try to dial down from there, the oven turns itself off.
3. It will start up as long as the temp is first set at 400 degrees or higher.
