SOURCE: F4 code when preheating oven

That code means "Shorted Oven Sensor". You can find out more about this by removing the bottom drawer, pull it out til it stops, lift it up and pull it all the way out. Now lay down on the floor and look under the oven to the left side. You will see a service info card there. Pull it out, open it up and have a read.

SOURCE: Oven isnt working

F4 is the code for a shorted temperature sensor.
You would need to check it with an ohm meter to be sure, but most likely the sensor has failed and will have to be replaced.
Post back if you have any questions.

F4 fault code


Hi Ric,

Fault codes refer to the "clock" component of your range. The exact name depends on the brand you have. For example:
Electronic Range Control
ERC
Electronic Oven Control
EOC
control board
clock
all refer to the same part.

Usually the F3 and F4 Fault codes refer to the Oven Temperature Sensor (RTD). Here are the steps to take:
1. Check the Connections.
Make sure the wiring is okay between the oven control, oven sensor and sensor harness.
2. Replace Oven Temperature Sensor (RTD).
If the wiring is ok, the Oven Temperature Sensor (RTD) has shorted and it will need to be replaced.

Here is a fairly simple diagram for you:

And below is a link to a video the shows you how to check the sensor:


Hope that helps!

F4 error


The F4 error means that the oven temperature sensor is giving an open signal. Probably the oven temperature sensor needs to be replaced. However, sometimes, the wiring harness between the sensor and the control unit has a fault or the control unit (computer) is bad.

I hope this helps.

I have a GE Spectra range/oven the oven will no come on and gives me a F4 error message, can you help?


Hi

F4 Error indicates a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Get an error code of f4 when trying to set temperature


F3 - F4 Open oven temperature sensor (circuit) (over 2700 ohms) or, shorted oven temperature sensor.

Could be a result of:
· contamination on terminals
· pinched wire in oven temperature sensor circuit
· cold solder joint on control

Possible Solutions:
· Disconnect power to range and remove oven temperature sensor connector from control.
· Measure oven temperature sensor resistance at oven temperature sensor connector (take care not to damage terminals in block) - Should read 1100 ohms at room temperature (approx 72 degrees F).
· Measure each oven temperature sensor lead from connector block to ground. If shorted, look for pinched or cut wire in oven temperature sensor circuit.
· Check connector terminals - Look for deformed or corrosion on terminals. Repair or replace. If all above is ok replace control.

Hope helps.

Range displays code of F4 and stops working


F4 Oven temperature sensor (RTD) shorted Replace Oven temperature sensor (RTD)

The F2, F3 and F4 codes refer to problems with the oven temperature sensor or the keypad. If you see the two-digit F2 code, it means your keypad has shorted and the ERC must be replaced. The four-digit F2-E0 code means that the oven temperature is too high. Test the door lock and the relay operation, and correct as necessary. A two-digit F3 code means an open temperature sensor or thermal fuse, so those parts must be replaced. A four-digit F3-E0, F3-E1, F3-E2 or F3-E3 code or a two-digit F4 code means that either the oven is registering as too hot or the temperature sensor has shorted. Either way, the oven temperature sensor must be replaced.
Hope helps.

Oven wont light gaves F4


Hi, the F4 error code means Open or shorted oven temperature sensor (RTD)..
Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.
