I have a Kenmore stove electric was baking and the top part used for broiling came on now it's on even when oven is turned off it has a number on display e2 f3
Hello. The E2 F3 error indicates a high temperature condition. From what you're describing though, the main oven control board is malfunctioning. This board has relays on it that turn on the bake or broil elements. Sometimes, these relays can either become shorted or stick--causing whatever they control to stay on improperly. If I had the model number of your range, I could provide you with the part number for the control board, relay power board(if present on your model oven) and oven sensor if needed. Normally, at room temperature, the oven sensor will have approximately 1100 ohms of electrical resistance, +/- 10%. Remember, always remove power from the range before checking anything. There are only 2 things in an oven that control temperature--the main board and the oven sensor, which is connected to the main board by 2 wires. You will have to remove the back panel of the oven, locate the wires coming from the sensor and disconnect the connector joining the sensor to the board. Put an ohmmeter across the 2 leads of the sensor and take a reading. If the reading is near 1100, then the sensor is good--you can't check the main board. Important note: if your oven is more sophisticated, it might have another circuit board called a "relay power board", which might be causing the problem. The relay power board is just what it sounds like--a circuit board that has a bunch of relays on it that turn on/off everything--stove top elements and oven features. They are notorious for malfunctioning. The oven control board simply tells the relay board which relay to activate/de-activate. I hope I helped you!
