Question about Kenmore Ovens

Kenmore Oven will not shut off

I thought I had turned my oven off and left for the other room and came back 20 minutes later and found it still on. I finally had to turn the breaker off to get it to turn off. Tried again and same results. My question is, will this be a cheap fix if I call a repair man or should I just purchase a new oven since it's over 8 years old. I'm not sure of the model, but it's a Kenymore Electric Glass Top Single Oven.

Ok, due to the age of this unit, the repair will be costly. the issue here is a damaged control board. the control will run a little over 200 dollars and that without the labor charge. standard labor charges will vary form 50 to 75 dollars an hour and , there is a 2 hour standard start charge automatically leaved once the repair man arrives. this will bring your repair bill to the 300 dollar mark. you may be able to find a cheap repairman but, the price will be hovering in the 230 to 290 range a t best.

It would be more cost affective to purchase a new unit with a new warranty as well.

Oven locked with door open how do I reset it?


my first thought is if the oven is standard 220 three or four prong electric, for safety, go to breaker switch panel,"in House or outside of house", open pannel door and find the breaker switch marked for "oven" or "kitchen utility" . it will be a double switch of 20 to 25 amp ,"each". or it will b One breaker switch of 45-50 amp. ,switch it to off. then see that the oven has no power, the stove top as well as the lights and the oven .try to unlock it now. by lever or button ? then if not unlocking turn the breaker back on and try it again. hope it works for you.

Oven shuts off and code F-5 is indicated


Hi do you know the oven brand?

If its a Maytag oven beeping the message is F5 oven needs to be turned off.

F5 refers to your electronic oven control is bad. You can try to reset it by turning the breaker off for 20 minutes and reseting the breaker..if this fails to work you will need to replace the EOC.

My oven is dead - no display, no nothing. Circuit breakers are fine. Turned them off overnight, still nothing on oven this morning. This happened about a year ago but oven came on again ten minutes...


What you need to check is for power at the clock.TURN OFF BREAKER gain access to clock and use volt meter. One the clock will be wires maked L1 & N on those 2 wires when breaker is turned back on their should be 120 vac. IF 120 vac at those 2 wires,replace the clock, if not 120 vac into clock check for burnt/broken wires

I was cleaning my double oven and the F2 error message and beep came on. I finally turned the oven off at the breaker. Will the oven doors eventually open when the oven cools down and I turn on the...


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.

The broiler coil heats even when the oven is off.


The oven control is bad, since I do not have your model number I cannot tell what type of control it uses. If you could send me the model number from the tag I could take a look and maybe give you some insight as to what it will take to repair.

Thank you

I have a frigidaire mef352bgwd electric oven- after a power outage the lock engaged (door open) and now blinks continually. Tried shutting off breaker for 30 minutes- no change.


There is a pin that tells the oven the door is open, you need to push it in an hold it. It is pretty stiff, you can't use your bear hand. It will be in the upper left of where the door closes.

Won't turn off


Sounds like maybe a wire burned off of an element terminal and shorted to ground. This would bypass the thermostat, so to speak, and continue to heat at 1/4 wattage. The only way to control this failure would be to turn off the power to the oven, but it won't reset until the burned wire is repaired.
