I plugged in the probe and stuck it into a pyrex measuring cup of water, set the probe temp to 165, set the convection (or bake) oven to 500, and turned it on. This allowed it to run for about 20 minutes, and cleaned out the probe jack. Works fine now.

Remove the left panel of the oven housing (remove the two screws in the rear, then slide the panel forward to remove). Disconnect the wires going to the probe socket. Wrap the ends of the wires with an insulating material and leave them disconnected. Reinstall the panel and screws. Obviously, the probe function will not work, but it is pretty useless anyway. And your problem will be solved.

    I had this problem as described. I followed the solution by s8b2 and it is all good now. I did not have to take the side panel off of my unit, there was a small round cover over the probe location that I was able to use.

I tried disconnecting the wires from the socket and it appeared to work but the problem returned the next time the oven was used.
I did manage to fix the problem however. I removed the oven a second time so that I could disconnect the temp probe wire harness from the control panel. You can identify it because it has two white fabric-like covered wires ending in a red connector on the top of the oven - it's the only one like that.
I had already cut the wires at the probe socket so I tried to remove the entire harness. This is when I found that one of the wires was pinched tightly under a support bracket - a problem created when the oven was manufactured. Over the years, a small amount of grease had infused into the fabric-like insulation. When heated by the oven, the grease achieved sufficient conductivity and contact to ground that the computer was tricked into sensing that the probe was inserted.
We have been testing and using the oven for weeks now and no more problem. No temp probe either but we never used it. If you do use it, you can buy a new harness with socket for $40 and install.

This is usually caused by a short from the casing of the probe socket to the body of the oven. This is not an easy thing to fix as it requires you to take the range apart. I usually fix this by removing the probe socket and painting the case of the probe where it comes in contact with the oven cavity and also around the hole in the oven cavity where it attaches and after it has been allowed to dry reassemble.

After using spray cleaner on the oven, the same error message happened to me. I loosened the probe screw in the oven, used a hairdryer to thoroughly dry the probe plugin, this fixed the problem. Next time I will cover the probe socket with tape before cleaning with a spray cleaner

The oven will pre heat to set temp, then when it reaches temp the oven beeps and both oven elements turn off. At this point the control panel (clock LED) shows an F2 error.


Good afternoon.
F2 for hotpoint means oven temp sensor thinks oven exceeded 650 degrees .Did that happen?
Probably not so have your sensor checked or replaced. It should be a probe device in oven back wall.

Hi

This means a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Kitchen aid KGRA 806 PSS The " probe temp" words and icon feature on our Kitchenaide KGRA 806 PSS freestanding gas stove/oven will suddenly start to beep and flash.


Hi,


This is a common issue and cannot be troubleshooted. The only way to fix this is to replace the temperature probe. The error will disappear and the range would start working fine.


Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

Put the probe in the oven and beeping stopped. Left it in overnight and next morning took the probe out and there was no beeping. Have not heard beeping all day. Don't know why this worked but it did.

Kitchenaid gas oven


the Controller is asking you to set the probe temp because it thinks the probe is plugged in try to plug in your probe and remove it and see if it goes away if not the probe outlet is bad or if it flashes a code i will need to know that ..also you went into the Factory Version not the Error codes menu an error code would read like a F7 or F2 just an FYI
