What's F4 error code stands for?


Hello Richard;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You did not provide a model number and manufacturer. So, the following is a general description of a F4 code.

The error code "F4" will be displayed along with a beeping sound if the ERC (Electronic Range Control) or "clock" determines an open oven temperature sensor circuit during the "cook" (bake or broil) mode. The "F4" message will not be displayed in the time of day mode. The cause of the problem is a bad oven temperature sensor or its wire harness. The access to the oven temperature sensor plug and the wires is from the back only. You have to pull the oven out of the wall (if it's free standing) or remove it from the cabinet (if it's built in). Disconnect the power and remove the rear cover. Check the resistance across the oven temperature sensor. It is supposed to be about 1100 Ohms at room temperature. If the resistance is incorrect, the oven temperature sensor is bad and needs to be replaced. If not, check all the wires from the oven temperature sensor to the ERC. If it is not the sensor and wires, you have to replace the ERC.
To get the right replacement part just click on the link AppliancePartsPros, then type the model number of your oven in the search box, click on the "search" button and in the new window type the word "sensor" or the word "clock" in the "search by keyword" box and click the "search" button.

You can go into the following website put in your model number and get diagrams ans component part numbers.
Your model number is on a label either on the face of the oven when you open the door or on the side of the oven door.

Hello,

When checking the sensor it shouls be checked at room temp (even if power off) at it should be between 1060-1100 ohms at room tempature. 16 ohms the new sensor is shorted the F2/F3/F4 all relate a faided sensor and the F5 error code says the clock (electronic oven control) is defective.

Test the sensor again at room temp...if only 16ohms its no good and will throw the F4 code everytime again a good sensor measured at room temp should be between 1060-1100 ohms

When baking in top oven for any period of time my oven will start beeping with an F4 blinking on the oven temp screen? What is it trying to tell me?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F4 error code indicates a open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you wan to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. However, I believe it is the sensor as the problem is only with bottom oven. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Hi, the F2 error code means that the oven is overheating for an unknown reason. F3 and F4 indicate a problem with the oven sensor, which usually requires replacing the sensor.

Kenmore ovens flashes -F4- when I try to set it to bake? What does this mean?


Hello,

The problem likely originates from the oven temperature sensor. While not all but most manufacturer's use the "F4" code for a shorted or open sensor, you'll need to provide your model number to be certain. If you are able, check the value of the sensor, it should be approx. 1100ohms at room temperature, if not, replace it.

**Unplug the unit from the wall before performing any service**

hope that helps,

Good Luck :)

F4 error code


Ok, test the element for its operational value. if the element is not getting a signal to warm from the control board, this will be the issue, considering that the element is new and able to warm. replace the Oven control in this case.

JUst to be safe, back track the installation to make sure every connection was properly united. make sure the element was installed correctly. if so, replace the control.

Kenmore double oven f4 fault code - door locked.


We had the F4 problem and called Sears repa. They sent someone out. The guy opened the panel above the bottom oven (we have a double oven) and hit a reset button - then charged us $75. This has worked on several occasions (my husband did it after that). But then that didn't work and Sear's told us it was the electronic panel which they replaced twice. Now it's (F4) happened again on the top oven only on a brand new electronic panel. So I guess it's the heat sensor this time.
