    The sf stands for sabbath failure,

  • Carol Barbour Dec 13, 2012

    The problem was solved, the SF error code stands for Sabbath Failure, and by holding the timer up arrow and lock button at the same time the error code went away and the cooktop works like always.  I still do not know how the error code happened as no one was in the room at the time.

SOURCE: error codes 10 12 16 on kenmore induction cooktop

We purchased a 36" elite model on ebay for our house we are building. I finally installed a year later only to have error codes 39 & 40. I completely dissasembled it and put it back together. No luck. However after much searching I found the service manual for the 36" Icon by Electrolux (same manufacturer as the Elite). The guts look mostly the same. Manual states your codes 10 16 12 are for defective key sensors. I found out that on my cooktop if I held a key for maybe 20 sec or more it would beep once - indicating the key was not defective.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Induction Cooktop Error Code 41

I realize this is over a year old. I have the same unit with the same error code. Last night, mine made a popping noise followed by smoke and then displayed the 41 and all E's. I pulled the breaker immediately. I'm sure that at least one controller board is toast.
I called Sears and it is under warranty but for parts only, so I guess I will give them a call and schedule the repairman. This should be fun.

Anyone else experienced this failure??

Displays error 40. Why won't it turn on?


Hi Dolores, I understand that your cooktop will not turn on after receiving an error code "40". Usually this error code can indicate a communication error between the Induction Module, Relay Board, and Control Board. I would also recommend doing a hard reset by unplugging or turning the household power breaker off to the appliance for five to ten minutes. If the problem persists, please reach out to a professional technician. Hope this helps! -JK

How do you unlock a kenmore elite cooktop?


You can do this by:
Check the oven display to see whether the screen says "LOC." When "LOC" is displayed, the oven lock is activated and the door cannot be opened. You need to make sure it is locked so you do not mistakenly lock the door.

  • 2 Press and hold the "Stop" button on the oven control panel until "LOC" disappears from the display. Some oven models have a button marked "Oven Lock," which should be used instead of the "Stop" button.
  • Lock the oven again by pressing and holding the "Stop" or "Oven Lock" button until "LOC" appears in the display

    Frequently the ignitors on our Five Star stove model #TTN033 start sparking spontaneously. The only way to stop them is to turn off the circuit breaker to the stove. Thank you Philip D. Manfredi,...


    You may have a bad microswitch on one of the controls. It only takes one to be bad to cause this. Another possibility is a pinched or melted wire from one of the control microswitches to the ignitor module.
