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!

The oven runs too hot...even at lower temps

If the oven is in temp runaway and just gets hotter and hotter, always on, then there is a failed component. If the temp is just somewhat hotter but is still being controlled then there is a user temp offset procedure to calibrate the oven temp. See your user manual. If a failed component it can be several things from a oven temp probe to the oven controller. There are electrical checks to determine which including reading the resistance of the temp probe at a known oven temp and checking this with a oven probe temp vs resistance chart.

Hot indicator surface light will not turn off on maytag smooth top oven cre9600bce. always stays red even when oven or cook top not in use. What part is needed.

I had the same problem, but I found out it was only when one particular burner was turned on. I waited for the problem burner to cool, then took the fist of my hand and tapped on the burner itself and the light goes out every time. Works like a charm..probably a loose connection with that one burner.

Tappan Oven #MEF500PBWD heating unevenly

Perhaps the item you are using to check temperatures is not accurate. I my line of work, I use a digital thermometer which records immediate temperature. Perhaps understanding the process will help you see more accuracy in the way you read the temperature in your oven. Allow me to offer this explanation....First of all, place your thermometer near on the top rack as close to the oven temperature probe as possible. This probe is the focal point for your oven and detects the temperature and opens the electrical circuit to turn off the element when the desired set temperature is attained. Set your electric oven to 300 degrees and hopefully, you have a window in your oven to watch. The bake element will come on and the temperature will rise until it reaches 300 degrees. It is at this point when your oven bake indicator light should go out. When this happens....look inside. The element is still bright orange and emitting heat and will continue to raise the temperature in the oven to approximately 325 - 340 degrees. With this noted, you will see the temperature beginning to drop 315, 310, 300, 295, 290, 285 perhaps even 280 or some even lower to 275 and then the indicator lamp will go on indicating the circuit has closed thus turning on the element, Finally there is a variance and no range GAS or ELECTRIC will ever maintain a even 300 degree temperature. The calibration set point is based on the 300 degrees. If your oven light goes off within 20-25 degrees of three hundred degrees, your oven is already calibrated pretty close and I would not attempt to adjust it at all.

Preheat Indicator

That is not how they work, you either have a oven sensor problem or a control board problem. One of the two are reading the temp wrong. You need to call them back and have it fixed.
