The F1 alarm is beeping.....what does this mean? Thank you!


The "F1" fault code implies a faulty oven temperature sensor. In order to diagnose which will require disconnecting the oven temperature sensor from inside the oven cavity and measuring the resistance using an ohm meter. The oven temperature sensor probe should measure approximately 1100 ohms at room temperature.
Here is the temp. sensor to order.

What is the code F10


The F-10 error code normally indicates a runaway temperature condition on most Kenmore ranges beginning with model 790. . .
Since you are seeing this code when the range is off, then you likely have a failed oven temperature sensor probe. Unplug the range or shut off the breaker to disconnect the electrical power. Shut off the gas supply. You can now access this component to check it. On most free standing ranges, you can pull the unit away from the wall and remove the back lower panel to access the oven temperature sensor probe. The sensor protrudes through the top of the back wall of the oven cavity. Unplug the wiring connection to the probe and measure the resistance through the probe with a volt ohm meter. At room temperature, you should measure about 1100 ohms. If you measure over 2000 ohms through the sensor, then this failed sensor is causing your F-10 code and it will need to be replaced.
You can order a new temperature sensor from the Sears PartsDirect website. Use your full model number to access the diagram and parts list for your range.
If the sensor tests okay, then you could have a wiring problem or a failed electronic oven control board.
If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details and the full model number of your Kenmore range.

Temperature probe is reading about 25 degrees F too high. How do I re-calibrate this


these are not very accurate but your reading are out of spec. definitely
check probe and also leave it for some time and then check measurement (5 min or so) maybe it needs longer top stabilize
temperature (K type) uses mV for calculation and therefore cannot be adjusted without adjusting mV DC setting also (if that is possible on this meter)

The oven temperature never reaches set temperature. it's about 50 degrees lower than 375 and 75 less than 425. any ideas?


If the temperature can be controlled at this actual temperature there is very little to worry, your thermostat was manufactured with minor non-conformity in quality (meaning slightly defective product) To solve your worries, calibrate the thermostat then make a new marking to where the temperature is actual or closest to the measured one.

F3 code on ge xl 44 gas range


F3 Open oven temperature sensor circuit Measure oven temperature sensor circuit at oven temperature sensor (should be approx 1100 ohms at room temp); check for cut or pinched wire or loss of contact

Ignitors will not shut off


I think your problem is within the control circuit
panel in your oven its not sensing that gas has ignited or themocouple

F2 IS FLASHING ON STOVE AND BEEPER WILL NOT STOP


F2
During
BAKE Control senses oven temperature above 615F-630F If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit, not actual oven temperature. F2
During
CLEAN Control senses oven temperature above 915F-930F If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective. Check door lock switches.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature.

F3 code and beeping


F3 - F4 Open oven temperature sensor (circuit) (over 2700 ohms) or, shorted oven temperature sensor. Could be a result of:
· contamination on terminals
· pinched wire in oven temperature sensor circuit
· cold solder joint on control. · Disconnect power to range and remove oven temperature sensor connector from control.
· Measure oven temperature sensor resistance at oven temperature sensor connector (take care not to damage terminals in block) - Should read 1100 ohms at room temperature (approx 72 degrees F).
· Measure each oven temperature sensor lead from connector block to ground. If shorted, look for pinched or cut wire in oven temperature sensor circuit.
· Check connector terminals - Look for deformed or corrosion on terminals. Repair or replace.
If all above is ok replace control.
