Question about KitchenAid KGST307 Gas Kitchen Range
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.

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

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.

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.
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.
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.
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."

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.
