Hi Fred!

F4 error on your model is a failed temperature sensor. Gotta yank it outta there and replace it. Yep.

I looked it up for you. The part number WB21X5301. You can get it from Sears (here) or your local appliance parts house. You can view a complete breakdown of all your oven here.

You'll have to pull your oven out into the kitchen and remove the back panel to do this repair. So... before doing anything, GO OUTSIDE AND TURN THE BREAKER OFF!!!! Is that clear enough? Failure to do this before you repair will result at the worst, in death or serious injury and at best a funky new hair do... something similar to Gene Wilder.

The temp sensor can be seen inside the oven cavity mounted to the rear wall. It's an 8" probe mounted with 2 screws. Remove these and let the sensor dangle. Now, around back (with the panel now removed, disconnect the sensor from the harness (you'll see it... 2 little tiny white wires). Now just remove it by pulling it out of the oven cavity.

All ya gotta do now is install the new one, connect it to the harness and rebuild everything. Total job time is about 45 minutes (at the outside).

This will get you cookin' again, so please remember to rate this solution. Show me some FixYa love! Thanks!

F4 is an error code that flashes on Kenmore electric ovens when the oven's temperature sensor has shorted. You should check the wiring harness and replace the sensor if necessary.

Hope helps.

Kenmore ovens flashes -F4- when I try to set it to bake? What does this mean?


Hello,

The problem likely originates from the oven temperature sensor. While not all but most manufacturer's use the "F4" code for a shorted or open sensor, you'll need to provide your model number to be certain. If you are able, check the value of the sensor, it should be approx. 1100ohms at room temperature, if not, replace it.

**Unplug the unit from the wall before performing any service**

hope that helps,

Good Luck :)

EO F2 code


hi, this appears to be a fault caused by a short in your keypad - electronic range control (ERC)

this needs to be replaced unfortunatly.

To assist you finding the proper part your model numbel means that the oven is manufactured by Whirlpool for Sears/kenmore.
