F11 is a serial communication error. Communication between the main board and the motor control board is not being sent correctly. This could be a bad main board, motor control board or motor itself. The testing can get pretty involved. Try putting the machine in a self test mode and see if the error clears. Press Cancell, then by pressing the drain spin button once on the left side then move to the spin speed button the the right. Press this button until no-spin lights. Press the prewash button 4 times. C00 should appear in the display. Let it run it's tests, there will be 8 of them and end up on C08. If this doesn't work, it's best you wait for the service tech.


Good luck

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire range is displaying an "F11" error code after a power outage. An "F11" error code stands for a shorted keypad. I would suggest performing a reset on your range and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes.

Frigidaire model number FEFL79DSB showing a F11 code on the control panel. Oven will not turn on and I am getting a alarm.


I appreciate your post, Dale Miller!
From what you have described your Frigidaire range is displaying an error code of "F11" and you are receiving an alarm. Normally an "F11" error code stands for a shorted keypad. I would suggest performing a reset and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If you restore power and continue to receive an "F11" error code you may need to replace your control panel. I would recommend having a professional do so, they will be able to properly disassemble your range and accurately replace the electrical component to not damage anything internally on your range. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire range is displaying an "F11" error code. Typically, the "F11" error code stands for a shorted keypad. This could be a false error code and the best way to clear any false error codes is to disconnect power from the range for at least ten minutes.

F11 flashing kenmore he washer


The F11 error code indicates a serial communication failure. This happens when the 2 main control boards are unable to communicate with each other. This is either caused by a loose wiring harness connection or one of the control boards is defective. Good luck and please rate FixYa!

Could you tell me what F11 code means?


F11 error code means there is a problem with the Control panel. Could be melted wiring, etc, since you left the oven standing. However, you can try unplugging the device from the power socket for about 5 minutes and reconnect. If the error goes away, then well and good; if not, you may have to replace the panel control.

Error F11


Plug off the wall. Shaking & vibration of your washer causes circuit board connections to become loose; due to faulty manufacture. Remove the 3 or 4 screws from the back & take off the top cover to secure the connections, make sure they are tight. This applies for the F11 & F dl codes. Works for certain machines, dont see why it wont for yours.
