F2 code and alarm

Pre=heated oven to 425, put pizza in and set timer for 12 minutes. After about 10 minutes an alarm started ringing and an F2 code showed on the timer.  Turned the oven off, checked the broiler everything ok.  Oven seems to be working ok.  burners are working ok.  What should I check? Is it the timer?  Thanks.

How to set timer

I found a pdf of the manual for your stove. See the link below to download the pdf.
If you press the button that looks like a bell under the clock you can use + an - keys to set the minutes for a reminder timer that won't turn off the oven.
After turning the thermostat to the temp you want and function knob to the setting you want set the cooking time as follows.
You press the button that looks like steam coming off a pan below the clock for 1/2 second .
Then use + an - keys to set the minutes. Every 12 minutes will make a new segment light up on the inside ring so the numbers corospond to hours on the inside ring.
When the time is where you want it, wait 6 to 10 seconds and the cooking and timer will start.

Kenmore range stopped working after self clean cycle

It will help to know the model number from the oven, but F2 usually indicates a failed temperature sensor on most ovens. If this is the case on yours, it will have to be replaced for the oven to operate again.
Post back with the number and I will see if I can help.Thanks/Mike

I preheat oven and i get an f2 err

F3 is the sensor, F2 is keypad failer. You have two choices. Replace the main controller List price $286. Its kinda easy, Unplug remove backplate and then unplug 2 wireharnesses and remove the controller, it held by two screw. Option 2. Pre heat with door open. Its wastefull in the summer but in the winter, 10 minutes may cost you less than $286 if you dont use your oven very much. Leaving the door open prevents the massive amount of heat that pours out the vent located just below your "over-heated" controller. After pre-heating the F2 usually doesn't appear during normal heating operation. I've done this over 20 times and main controller is the only way to get rid of f2 on whirlpool ranges

Alarm going off on whirlpool stove with flat top. Showing F2. Cannot find manual


The F2 error code means that the oven temp. sensor has detected that the temp.of the oven was at least 100 degrees what the setting was ...if it was set at 350 it heated to at least 450...this sometimes is a electronic fluke especially if you didnt see wher ewhat ever you were cooking because it over heated,if that is the case you didnt experience something burnt,the F2 can can cleared by pushing cancel/off button

If the F2 does returns the oven sensor should be replaced

Kenmore Electric Range Model # 790.95664100 All display lights are off until you turn on a heating element control knob. Then the time display starts flashing "12:00" along with a short buzzing sound...

Sounds to me from the information you provided that the auto timer is set...when the auto timer gets set you are generally unable to use the oven. If the auto timer is not set then you are looking at a problem with the Electronic oven any error codes show up f1 - f2 - f3 and so on?

Display Malfunction

Hello murfraven,

You said, you went to set the timer while baking a pizza and I got a "set or en" on the display of my Maytag Gemini Ceramic Top electric oven.
How old is the range?
And the model number?

Threat it like an error code.
This can reset the system.
Turn the breaker off to cut the power for 5 minutes.
Then restart the breaker and try the range.
It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.

If this does not remedy the problem, then the switch itself is bad.
Let me know how it works out.
Huuum, Please remember to leave a rating

When trying to pre-heat my oven, It won't until serveral attempts later (maybe 10 ). Then, after baking and stopping the oven, I get an F1 error! What's going on?


F1 is listed as "Element Relay circuit Failure".

There will be a current switching relay to the oven - which is faulty - hence why you get the error when it realises it's not working.

This should be replaced to solve future problems.

For your reference, the fault codes are -
F0 Touch pad stuck in depressed position
F1 Element relay circuit failure
F2 Oven temp exceeded the clean runaway temp (self clean) -or- runaway temp (cooking modes)
F3 Short circu!t in oven temp sensor
F4 Open circuit in oven temp sensor
F5 - N/A
F6 Failure in the EEPROM check comparison (only time of day and timer will operate)
F7 Failure of Sef-C1ean auto door latch circuit.
F8 Failure of the door latch motor. Occurs when the motor runs for two minutes without the door locking Self-Clean mode.

If this resolves the issue, Please rate accordingly. Thank you.
