Unplug the range and remove the back middle part of the back (should be three screws, I did this yesterday). Remove the rigth side panel by pushing from the back of the range to the front about an inch. It should then be possible to lean the top out and then remove.

Where the probe enters the oven you should see a whole in the side of the oven. If you look carefully you will see the other end of your broken probe sticking out in the open (You may have to move some insulation to see it).

Push the probe back into the oven san you should be back in business.

Replace range side and back (make sure to replace any insulatin which you have moved.

Meat Probe doesn't work


The F3 E2 error code indicates that the electronic oven control board in the range senses an over-temperature condition in the oven.

This can be caused by a failed temperature sensor probe, a wiring problem between the sensor and the control board, or a failed electronic oven control board.
If the oven is apparently not overheating when this error code appears, then your likely failure is the temperature sensor probe.
If the oven is overheating, then you likely have a failed electronic oven control board due to a stuck relay not cycling the oven heating element off properly.


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.

KitchenAid Gas Range Temperature Probe


We had the same problem, and we tricked it into running it's cycle be doing the following;

1. Wrap a wet paper towel around the probe, plug it in, and close the door. Then follow the temp. probe directions in the manual:
2. Set probe temp. at 130 degrees, then select a bake cycle. We selected convect bake.
3. Set oven temp for 275 degrees, but maybe any temp over the probe temp would work.
4. Then start. The cycle took 12 minutes to complete, and when it was finished, turn the oven off and then open the door and unplug the probe.
5. Now everything works fine.

Meat probe button on control pad


there is no real way to reset it you reset it when you turned the breaker off, It sounds like the EOC (electronic oven control) is faulty. I would just keep reset it and keep doing that to bake the turkey how hot will it get before it buzzes? is it showing any error codes?? F1, F2, F3 etc.....
