Question about KitchenAid KGST307 Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

Gas range requests probe temperature and heats up.

My range was off (not in use) and suddenly started beeping with the display requesting that I remove the probe or set the probe temperature. The probe was not in place. I tried setting the temperature and it wouldn't take any entry. I also tried cancelling- to no avail. The oven clicked on and started heating up- hotter and hotter and hotter. The only thing that made it stop was flipping the circuit breaker.

SOURCE: Oven will not heat to requested temperature

Shaffy, When baking only the bake element should heat. When broiling only the broil element (upper) should heat. Your oven is a Kitchenaid, you have a 5 year warranty on any electronic element or control board. You may have a temperature sensor that is not working right. The oven just might need to be calibrated, the instructions would be in your owners manual. Your bake element might be failing, it would have to be ohmed out. You also need to verify that the bake element is getting 240V. when turned on. Catriver...post back

SOURCE: KitchenAid Gas Range Temperature Probe

We had the same problem, and we tricked it into running it's cycle be doing the following;

1. Wrap a wet paper towel around the probe, plug it in, and close the door. Then follow the temp. probe directions in the manual:
2. Set probe temp. at 130 degrees, then select a bake cycle. We selected convect bake.
3. Set oven temp for 275 degrees, but maybe any temp over the probe temp would work.
4. Then start. The cycle took 12 minutes to complete, and when it was finished, turn the oven off and then open the door and unplug the probe.
5. Now everything works fine.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid Superba Gas Range - Oven temperature problem

The problem is: the temp seems to be 'stuck' at 260 and will not allow any higher settings.

Calling KitchenAid proved to be unuseful. The manual did not have this item in the troubleshooting pages. Resetting the power does not help.

The SOLUTION:
There is really no problem besides that the temp display setting has been somehow set to be celsius (metric system) rather than farhenheit (english system). Changing this setting somehow can be easily touched off without knowing, thus the "I didn't do anything and yesterday it was working fine..." comment from family members.

The FIX:
Reset the temp display back to farhenheit (F). This is done by opening the oven door, then hold down the 'Broil' button until you hear a beep from the control panel. The same method may be used to change from Farhenheit back to Celsius.

Prevention:
I speculate the inavertent change of the temp setting is done while cleaning the flat control panel. So the best thing to do is to always 'LOCK' the control panel when cleaning the controls. This is done by holding down the keypad "3/lock" for a few seconds until the display shows LOCK.

(The solution was already posted when I arrived at this page. I just organized it a bit by adding some details and a preventative comment. Many thanks to those who posted earlier, solving my issue as well. I hope my writing presents a clearer and quicker read to the next person)

SOURCE: E1-F1 error,

depending who made it, i would say its probably a whirlpool ....
that suks this is common after power outages..

1. Frst disconnect the power for at least 30 seconds. at the unit or breaker
2. Plug power back in and wait for couple minutes.
3. If code shows up again, replace the control board (also the electronic control board or ERC or clock.

note-usually boards are expensive couple hundred dollars so decide if u wanna get a new range .. k take care hope this helped

Testimonial: "Thank you this was helpful. From our experiences with the Kenmore convection ranges 423704 series they are a bust. I would rate this range as crappy."

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.

Remove probe from oven


most electric ovens have a temperature sensing probe inside of them. this is to prevent the oven from overheating and causing a fire. the reason why it's asking you to do that is because it's either dislogged from its place or it need to be replaced.

Beeping


"F2" is an oven sensor error on an Amana. You will need to replace the oven temperature sensor and/or the Electronic Range Control (ERC) board. Replacement of the ERC is only necessary if the oven sensor checks out good. As oven probes age, they can sometimes generate error codes on kitchen ranges and render them inoperative. The error code varies between models, but can be found with the technical documentation that comes with your range. Most manufacturers place a tech sheet somewhere along the back of the range, or inside the console for qualified technicians to use as a troubleshooting aid. Refer to this if an “F” code is displayed on your operator console. The probe may also exhibit other symptoms without generating an error code. You could have undesired heating results (too or too cold), or slow preheat times.

The location of the oven probe can vary on different models as well. It will be mounted on the back or side of the oven wall (usually in the upper right or upper left corner). If you suspect you have a bad oven probe, a resistance check can be performed to determine if the probe is good. To accomplish this, unplug the range and remove the back panel. There are still dangerous voltages present even when the oven is not on. There will be two heat insulated wires coming from the oven probe behind the oven. Disconnect the wires and perform a resistance reading across both wires at room temperature. If the probe is good, it should read around 1100-1200 ohms*. If the reading is too low (shorted) or too high (open), replace it. However, I would take a good look at the interconnecting wiring FIRST. If you have a connector plug on the oven probe, often the plug pins will oxidize and not make good contact. This gives false readings and can lead to erroneous error codes. Some manufacturers recommend cutting the connector plug off completely and hardwiring the leads together by using heat resistant ceramic wire lugs. This provides a more permanent and reliable connection. The lugs can be purchased at most hardware stores. A new oven probe roughly costs about $35 - $45 and can be found on line at several appliance parts websites. Higher end model prices may be more.

To replace the oven probe, simply remove the mounting screw from inside the oven cavity and pull the probe out. Insert the new probe by feeding the wires through the opening in the back of the oven first and out the back through the insulation (a long screwdriver can assist you in making a visible hole through the heat insulation to feed the wires easier). Once you have the wires through the back of the oven, reinsert the mounting screw and connect the wires leads together. Reinstall back panel.

*NOTE: Keep in mind resistance readings will be higher if the probe is hot. Make sure you check the temperature at room temperature.

I hope this information is helpful.. Post back if you need further assistance.

KitchenAid superbra range KGST307


I am not a repair man or anything, just an owner with the same gas range slidein appliance. What we have found to work was 1) plug in the probe into the socket in the oven 2) Turn on oven with the probe set at the minimum 160 degrees. and oven temperature to 325 degrees. 3) click start 4) wait for oven to reach probe temperature. 5) oven will then beep show end 6) Click cancel 7) open door and remove probe. 8) wait five minutes before trying to use again. I hope this helps you it has work for us so far. 6)

F3 code--oven doesn't heat


Deirdre, F3 is a bad temperature sensor. This is the probe that is in the oven that monitors the temp. This is not a hard fix. Depending on who you call hopefully you can get it repaired for under a hundred dollars. If you do it yourself probably under 50.00 for the part...Catriver..post back.
