Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have Kenmore Elite smoothtop range that was part of the recall a few years back. Now the oven seems to turn itself off or heat to different temperatures and it beeps ALL THE TIME for hours after using it. No error codes show up. The range is 9 years old (I would have expected a bit more time out of it) and I am not sure if it is worth fixing. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: No heat Maytag smoothtop range MERH752BAB

It would have to be under warranty if this happened after only 1 week. I would contact the manufacturer.

SOURCE: GE Profile Gas Range oven turns off

I just read that the electronic panel malfunctions due to rear burner use. Now, I know that mine gets REALLY HOT in between the back burners (where the heat exhaust for the oven is) whenever I bake/broil. I am guessing that it can cause the same malfunction fromt he oven, as with the backburners. Whenever I use both back burners, mine shows F7 E6, too. Unplugging it for the night or just waiting til the beeping stops and then clearing it works... until I cook again. I read that the replacement part for the control panel is about $300 and another $200, more or less, to install it! I think this is more like a recall or manufacturer's problem. I have read plenty of complaints and I think GE needs to make a call to fix them!!

SOURCE: Error code E2 F2

As you are aware the technical manual for your range doesn't show an error code of E2 F2 but all of the F2 codes pertain to the touchpad of the range.
Can you clear the E2 F3 by pressing the cancel button? If not, shut off the power to the range for a few minutes and see if the error code goes away. If the error code remains You should unplug the range from the wall and remove the back panel for the control area. Disconnect the ribbon between the touchpad and the electronic control, clean the end of it and reconnect it.
If this doesn't repair the problem you will need to replace the touchpad on the range. The parts diagram lists two touchpads, they are part numbers 8273575- bisque, and 8272702- white.
E2 relates to an overheating condition. Quite possibly related to your touchpad issue. I'd try cleaning the contacts and if that doesn't work...Up to you at that point!

Good luck

Sounds like the cancel (or stop) button is making contact by itself. Clock (oven control board) may need replacement.
One option to buy it new, your part number is 12001661
Coupon "New10" chops 10% off.
Another is to send the clock to be rebuilt. Google "stove timer rebuild", you'll find plenty of companies which can repair your original clock. In case you need it, the original part number is 74004542.
To get to the clock, remove the back of the control panel. Good luck.

SOURCE: Oven lights ,but doesn't heat to preset temperature

The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/gasoventroubleshootvideo.html this will walk you thru the correct procedure for performing this test. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

It could possibly be you are not getting 240 volts to the range. The top igniter may be getting a current back through the other side of the 240 circuit and that is why it works when the oven is turned on but the oven will not be getting power to heat. Have the 240 circuit checked or make sure the circuit breakers are reset correctly.

If I did get it fixed, do you think I would tell you. Your sight is very misleading. It says nothing about having to "subscribe" for a solution and besides, I never actually sent send when I filled out the boxes and the next thing I know is you were asking for a payment. Sounds a lot like fraud to me.

Problem with a different range...


Tom, generally a f1 code implies a control problem. The tech sheet gives 3 possible causes. 1. A shorted keypad, solution to replace electronic control. 2. Controls internal checksum has become corrupt, solution is to unplug for 30 seconds, if the code comes back, replace the electronic control. 3. Control has sensed a overheating condition, relay on the board may have shorted out. Each one recommends replacing the control board. The part I have for this model number is 316127903. Says it's grey. Catriver..post back.
