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)

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.

Our stove, a whirlpool accubake system is displaying an error code E0 - F0. We recently unplugged it after running the self cleaning feature. Now only the clock works, the stove does not heat and neither...


The E0 - F0 indicates that there are no error codes. This code will sometimes be displayed when you press and hold the CANCEL/OFF key for 5 seconds and there are no pre-existing error codes. Press the CANCEL/OFF button to clear this code.
You could have a problem with the oven temperature sensor or a problem with an element that is preventing the oven from heating properly. A problem with the control board or a blow thermal fuse on the broil element could also cause this problem. Check the broil function to see if the broiler will work properly. If the broiler will not work at all then you could have a blown thermal fuse. This thermal fuse is shown on the wiring diagram and parts drawing in the image below. You should be able to access this fuse by
unplugging the range and removing the back panel. You can check this fuse with a volt/ohm meter. Pull one wire off (with the range still unplugged) and measure the resistance across the leads of this component. You should measure near zero ohms of resistance (continuity) if the fuse is good. If the fuse is blown you will measure Open Circuit (open load or infinite resistance). With the range unplugged!

If the thermal fuse is okay, you could have a wiring failure, a failed broil element or a bad electronic control board.

If the broil element works okay but does not heat to the correct temperature, then you could have a bad oven temperature sensor probe. The procedure for accessing this component (with the range unplugged) is shown in the second image below. You can check this component by measuring the resistance through the probe. At room temperature, it should measure about 1080 ohms. If it is bad, it will need to be replaced.

If the sensor probe is okay then you could have a bad bake element. You can measure the resistance of this components in a similar manner as described above with the range unplugged!
The element should measure between 5 and 20 ohms. If it is open (measure Open Circuit or infinite resistance) then it will need to be replaced.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a technician.

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.
