Oven - Failed baked goods, takes too long on other things
I have a Kenmore electric range, about 5 yrs. old. Over the past several months it has been acting weird. Some things ok, some not. It has taken twice as long to cook a custard and I have had flat cakes. Casseroles seemed to take too long, too, but it always depends on the starting temp. of the casserole... It would seem that the oven might be too cool but using a separate oven thermometer, it shows that the temp is actually 50' too hot! Does that make sense? What can I do?
Re: Oven - Failed baked goods, takes too long on other...
Most ovens have what is called tempture sensor,its job is to read the tempture within your oven if this sensor is faulty then it sends the wrong signal to your display,you talk about a thermometer showing a different temp please do not put this thermometer in your oven some of these contain mercury and could explode in your oven.I would advise you to call a electrication and get him to test your tempture sensor.sorry i cant help you any better.adrian

Hello angeleyez82 - The EOC (electronic oven control/control
board) basically sends power to both the broil and bake elements. As long as
the power supply to the range (240VAC) and wiring between the elements is
correct, then typically only the element(s) or EOC could prevent the unit from
heating. I hope this information helps to some degree.
The fault code is for the ERC The ERC electronic Range Control has failed. If shutting off the breaker for at least 5 minutes does not clear the code you will need to replace the erc. This is the main control located behind the clock assembly. This is easy to replace but usually not to inexpensive. Enter your complete model # at www.appliancehelponline.com and you can pull up diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions.
The control (TIMER) has likely failed in this instance - BUT...
Sometimes when you disconnect power to a range and reconnect it the electronic range control gets confused. You should disconnect power again for 15 seconds and reconnect and see if that helps.
If it doesn't cure the E1- F5 error hold the bake button in until E0- F2 appears in the display. This is the error for a stuck button on the keypad and is the way to clear the memory of the electronic range control.
Sometimes these work, but if the control has failed it won't make any difference.

Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
Since it is a Kenmore you can get the part at Sears.com. You can price the part there. I can assure you that a technician will charge you at least $125. to do that repair. If the range is old, you may wish to put that money toward a new stove.
Please use the chart to determine which stove you have. You will have to look at the model number. The first 3 numbers will be the series on the chart. In most cases an F1 error would require replacment of the electronic control. This part is commonly refered to as an EOC or ERC. However this type of repair is usually reserved for repair specialists.
KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes – 362 Series (General Electric) F1 = Stuck Touch Pad Key - Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

F2 is Oven sensor is out of range .. oven sensor is sending a reading that the control can not understand... replace oven sensor and you may have to replace the control too as it may not be reading correctly... good luck and let me know if it helps
