F- codes on Kenmore Electric Range Model 4554990

After being on for a while, say an hour, all of a sudden the oven starts beeping and either an F-03 or an F-02 code flashes on the panel. We turn the oven off for a few minutes and then back on. At that point, sometimes the same thing happens within minutes, and sometimes it doesn't happen at all.

The oven temp. sensor has gone bad.  Replace it and that will solve your problem.  The part # is WB21X5301 and cost is $73.49.  Can purchase at  You can view the image at  It is inside the oven in the upper right or left hand corner.  Should be able to remove from the inside.  Two phillips screws and pull it out harness also.  Plug new one into harness and put screws back in and you are done.
The part is # 253 on the image.

Why does my kenmore range beep and show an error code every time I open the oven door?

Sometimes shutting off the circuit breaker that the range or oven is connected to for 30 seconds will clear the fault, error or function code.

F3 or F30 means that there may be a problem with the oven sensor.
Your oven sensor may need to be replaced.

Kenmore oven control beeps and shows F1

According to Kenmore's list of error codes, F1 means EOC (Electronic Oven Control) failure, and the solution is to replace the EOC. You might look into that. The part itself costs around $80, as far as I can see.

Oven beeping f1 and f3

Here are the error codes for your range:

F1 Circuit board defective Replace control board F2 1. The oven temp has risen above 665F and the door is not locked or
2. The temp has risen above 965F with the door locked 1. Check oven temp in mode that failure occurred. Replace EOC (Electronic Oven Control) if above limits
2. Check 8-pin connector. Check and replace oven temperature sensor if necessary F3 Oven temperature sensor is open (above 3000 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for open wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F4 Oven temperature sensor is shorted (below 500 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for shorted wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F5 Internal watchdog circuit has detected a failure Defective EOC (Electronic Oven Control) F6 Shorted buttons Check push buttons and dome switches on control F8 Logic interrupted (lock motor switch sequence) Check door lock switches and wiring

Most likely problem is the oven temp. sensor. Should check around 1100 ohms at room temp. I would replace that first because it is the easiest and cheaper than an oven control.
