HI, You will need to check the oven sensor wires that link the actual sensor to the main control board. Make sure that the contacts are connected properly, and not loose, or corroded. If all the wiring checks out, test the sensor for the correct resistance readings.(you will need a multimeter for this test)

The most common oven sensor should be approximately, 1100 ohms when at room temperature. The others may be close to as follows:

100°F - 1143 ohms
200°F - 1350 ohms
300°F - 1553 ohms
350°F - 1654 ohms
400°F - 1753 ohms
500°F - 1949 ohms

If the sensor test is adequate, and the wiring is Ok at the control, this will lead to a failed control board. replace the control in this case.

NOTE_ The sensor is located , and mounted on the backside of the oven wall. Open your oven door, and look on the top right, or left hand side of the back wall. You will notice a 5 inch probe.This is where the sensor will be housed. there are two screws to remove, in order, to access the sensor. On most models, it will be required to remove the unit from the cabinet. this will allow you inspect the wiring and test as well. The sensor can be removed from the back of the unit, once it is removed from the cabinet. use the wire contacts on the sensor for testing.

Why does my honda 420 FI light flash 9 times


Check your bike with it parked on the side stand. Count how many times the F1 light flashes. There are two types of flash that it gives off... a long one and a short one! A long flash = 10 short flashes.

So you may get 2 x long flashes and 5 x short flashes = 25 flashes in total.

The codes for Honda ST1300 are as follows. I know yours is a different model but I would have thought they would all be the same across the Honda range.
0 - bank angle sensor, ECM, PGM-FI fuse
1 - MAP sensor
2 - MAP sensor vacuum hoses, or sensor itself
7 - ECT sensor poorly connected or open circuit
8 - TP sensor, TP senspr wiring
9 - IAT sensor connection, or open wire
10 - Baro sensor, or connection, or wiring
11 - Vehicle speed sensor, or connection or wiring
12 - #1 injector connection, or faulty injector
13 - #2 injectior connection or faulty injector
14 - #1 connection or open/shorted circuit
15 - #2 connection or open/shorted circuit
18 - Cam pulse sensor, connection or loose sensor
19 - Ignition pulse sensor, connection or loose sensor
20 - faulty E-PROM in ECM.

My Kenmore Model 91195371790 oven Preheat light comes on as soon as you turn oven on and then flashes f2


Over-temp condition due to either oven temperature sensor or ERC (electronic range control).
Testing should be done by a qualified tech to prevent risks to user.

Can you tell me the location of code reader 1991 capri ?


1991 is pre-OBD2. code readers will not work.
sorry.
however, all is not lost. Many cars have an alternate way of reading codes from the computer.
Toyota has a block under the hood and you short couple wires together and count engine light flashes
Chrysler you can turn the ignition key on and off a few times and count engine light flashes
in your case for GMs from 1982 to 1995
1: find the 12 pin connector under the dash and short the upper two rightmost terminals.
with the ignition "ON" and engine not running. The system will enter the diagnostic mode. In this mode, the computer will display a Code 12, three consecutive times, by flashing the "CHECK ENGINE", "SERVICE ENGINE SOON" or "MALFUNCTION INDICATOR LAMP" or light. A Code 12 consists of one flash, a short pause, then two flashes in rapid succession.
2:. After Code 12 is displayed, any stored trouble codes will be displayed by flashing the "CHECK ENGINE", "SERVICE ENGINE SOON" or "MALFUNCTION INDICATOR LAMP" light. All codes are displayed 3 times each then a code 12 will repeat. In the diagnostic mode, the computer will also energize all computer controlled relays and solenoids.

The stove preheat light is on and the oven does.nt cook fast


Hello Theresa Thomas - Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn the range back on. Select a normal bake cycle and if issue continues then the unit may possibly have either a faulty element, bad communication error with the EOC, oven sensor, or mechanical thermostat. I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately. They also usually warranty their labor just in case something else may turn out to be the root cause of your initial problem and it does work out better to your advantage. .
