Question about Kenmore Kitchen Ranges
Kenmore model #911.9382192 flashes -F4- when try to pre heat. What does it mean?
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!
