Display says "remove probe" but no probe is installed

Our new JES9860 model's oven won't heat. Instead we get an error message saying "remove probe." We've never used the oven, let alone a probe. How do we fix this?

• The F5 error code indicates that the oven sensor has changed its resistance value and has failed to read the oven temperature correctly.

• If you choose the repair the range yourself it is fairly easy to do.

REMOVE POWER to the range and then open oven door and locate the pencil like probe protruding from the back of the oven cavity near the ceiling.

• Locate and remove the screws that are holding the sensor to the oven liner.

• Carefully remove the sensor and connecting wire harness to the point were you can get to the connector. Install new sensor and re-install into oven liner.

• Note!(some sensors have a harness plug and some have ceramic wire connectors).

Here is a link to the part you need.

Tip

Checking and Replacing an Oven Probe


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 hot 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, disconnect the wires 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..

Error message f4 fan lt electric double oven model 49425 & 49429


Every fault code I am able to find concerning F-4 period has to do with bad oven sensor. This is the probe coming through the wall inside the oven to read oven temp and to regulate it. Hope this helps. Rick

Kitchenaid KEMS308 display is saying "enter probe temp or remove probe" No probe is plugged in or has been used in a while. This message came up after cooking for about 3 1/2 hours at 300 degrees. Now...


Apparently this is to do with moisture having affected the oven adversely (I got this error message after baking 50 potatoes with all the steam that generated. Have a look at this page http://www.howtomendit.com/answers.php?id=162257 ....the solution is to set the probe for 160F then turn the oven on for 15 minutes or so at 450F. This apparently should dry out the probe position and all work again.....I am trying it now.....

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.

Kichenaid electric stove


the probe is put into the oven to sense heat and to prevent the oven from oveheating during normal operation. the reason the probe is beeping is because it's dislogged or needs to be replaced.

the only way to make the beeping stop is to disable it but i wouldn't recommend it.

have a technician run a diagnostic on the stove. sounds like the probe needs 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.

Stove will not work keep saying f3 lonf beep will not turn on


"F3" indicates an oven temperature problem on Jenn-Air models. This is usually caused by a bad oven temperature probe. It will be mounted on the back of the oven wall (usually in the upper right or upper left corner). To check the probe, unplug the range and remove the back panel. There will be two heat insulated wires coming from the oven probe behind the oven. A resistance reading at room temperature across these wires should be around 1100-1200 ohms if the probe is good.

Some manufacturer's recommended cutting the connector plug off completely and hardwiring the leads together by using heat resistant ceramic wire lugs. These can be purchased at most hardware stores. A new oven probe costs about $43 and can be found on line at several appliance parts websites. I found it at repairclinc.com (item #1364). Just type your model number in the search menu and a pictorial part index will be provided. I hope this helps you
