    What else would the module be in this stove when discussing the F1 error?

    I can Google and get the same response you posted on dozens of websites.

    Have a good weekend yourself.

HI, This is a board fault code. The entire control board is damaged. Possible logic chip failure. This will require you to replace the entire board. this type of damage is not repairable.

F-1 - Board Failure(also called EOC or clock).

    You said module not main control circuit board.

    Simply stating that you have changed the module is extremely vague.

    Try being more detailed in your future postings.

    Have a great weekend:)

GR448LXPS ERROR CODE E2F3


Hello,

The F3-E2 error code means that the heated well above the setting the tempature was set at. The usual reason the oven would over heat by so much is a defective oven tempature sensor and the sensor would need to be tested to see if is the problem to test the sensor it would need to disconnected from the wiring to it and measure the amount of ohms of resistiance AT ROOM TEMPATURE when the oven is off and cool. At room temp. the the meter used to check the sensor should display between 1060-1100 ohms,if the number is vastly different that 1060-1100 at room tempature the sensor is defiently bad and should be replaced. This is what the sensor looks like oldtech2332_129.jpg
it will be inside of the oven chamber and again to properly check it the wiring should be unplugged and the meter leads should be placed into the plug at the end of the sensor to measure the ohms.
If after checking the sensor if its within the range of 1060-1100 ohms at room tempature the problem is going to be the control board.


I hope i have been able to help ya fix your oven,

Received an error code F1-2. also both of the ovens will not heat.


Hello,

The F1:2 error code means that the LOWER OVEN tempature was way to high..this is usually caused by a defective oven temp.sensor.
The LOWER OVEN sensor would need to be checked,to check the sensor isolate it from the wiring and check for between 1060-1100 ohms of resistiance at room temp. if it's not pretty close to that range either way +/- the sensor is bad and needs to be replaced.
By pushing clear/off button it should clear the code and you should be able to use the small upper oven.

this is what the sensor looks likeoldtech2332_75.jpg

I have a Kenmore gas range and my power wet off this afternoon and I cannot clear the #2 off where my clock is. I have tried pressing every button but it does not seem to have power. I can use the stove...


Hello, What F2 or E2 means is the oven sensing thermostat has allowed the oven to overheat and therefore the clock(oven computer control) wont let the oven be used to that sensor has been checked/replaced. I do not know what you fell you're capible of as far as testing oven parts but i have included this video showing you how to check that sensor. As that video says when testing as shown at room tempature with the POWER OFF to the oven it should read between 1060-1100 ohms if much more or way less that 1060-1100 it should be replaced. If at room temp. it test to be good (1060-1100) the clock woiuld need to be replaced.

F1 error code on the ERC. No replacement ERC from Sears (Kenmore) or GE (manufacturer). The oven temp sensor is within specs at 1100 ohms @ RT.


Hello,

The F1 error code refers to one of the buttons on the touch pad being the problem and not spefically the erc unless on your model the touch pad is built in to the erc.On older model the touch pad was a different part on newer models its only part of the erc
Yes indeed 1100 ohms is the exact spec.for the sensor at room temp. however if the sensor were bad the error code would F3 if had a open circuit(infinate ohms) and F4 if it were shorted(zero ohms)

30 range get error message F2


F2 Oven over heat; defective Relay Board OR defective Sensor. The sensor should measure 1100 ohms @ room temp or 75 f. If it is open shorted or not withing range of 1100 ohms it is bad.
I would first check that before buying anything. Basic electronic stoves all have the same set up:

I have a Kenmore Elite Gas stove which gives me an error message F1. How much does it cost to replace that item?


Hi, the F1 code indicates that:


a. The electronic range control (ERC) is sensing heat in the oven when in a time-of-day (i.e., not cooking) mode.

b. The ERC is receiving information to run multiple heat functions simultaneously.


Although different components (depending upon the model) could generate the code, simple and straightforward testing using your ohm meter is all you gotta do to test for it.

1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor has to be within spec or it will cause the F1 code.
As an example of being out-of-spec, the ERC will generate an F1 fault code when the sensor shows 1650 ohms during a time-of-day mode.
This is equivalent to 350°F in the oven.
The resistance isn't high enough to generate an F2 code (runaway temp) or an F3 or F4 code (shorted/open sensor circuit).
The ERC monitors the sensor circuit after a heat cycle and expects the resistance to drop back to 1050-1100 ohms.
The fault code is generated when this doesn't happen. Checking the sensor circuit means also checking the harness,
harness connections and the sensor itself.

2. If the oven sensor circuit checks okay, then turn your inquisitive eyeballs to the touchpad.
If the range has a separate touchpad/keyboard, the keypad may have moisture that is shorting several circuits simultaneously.
If the F1 code is given immediately (instead of during or after a heat cycle),
remove the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the ERC after clearing the F1 code. If the F1 code does not return in five minutes,
then cast a suspicious gaze upon the touchpad/keyboard. Shorts may be caused by using an ammonia-based glass cleaner.
The touchpad surface will absorb ammonia-based cleaners that are sprayed directly on the glass surface. When heat is applied,
the surface material can break down causing shorts.
If you're gonna use ammonia-based cleaners on your control panel, then you should spray it on the rag and then wipe the touchpanel
-don't spray directly onto the surface of the touchpad.

3. On Amana ranges with a rotary temperature dial, be sure that the knob is in the OFF position when performing tests.

4. If these tests all check good, then replace the ERC.

Kenmore built-in oven set at bake tempature does not set just keeps rising got F2 code


HI. This error code will occur when the control board senses an oven temperature above 915F-935F

Once this type of temperatures occur, this will generally weld the relay contacts on the main board. This will damage the board, and it will require you to have it replaced, asap. If these temperatures never reached the sated thresholds, i would advise to Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace the sensor if found to be defective. Check door lock switches for damage, as well.

In most cases, this will be a failed control board. To confirm, simply preform a resistance test on the sensor. The normal ohm readings should be 1100 ohms at room temperature.

If the oven temp sensor dose not test out at 1100 ohms at room temp, replace the sensor.

F3 and F2 Error Codes


If hitting clear/cancel won't clear it try unplugging and then plug it back in. My guess is the oven control is bad. Here are the fault codes for this model.

Failure
Code
Condition Check/Repair F0 or F1 Failed transistor in control If code cannot be cancelled, replace the Electronic Range Control (ERC) or touch pad F2 Oven over temp - exceeded 590F with door in unlocked position or 990F with door locked If actual temp condition occurred, look for welded relay contacts or high resistance connection or any cause in the oven temperature sensor circuit F3 Open oven temperature sensor circuit Measure oven temperature sensor circuit at oven temperature sensor (should be approx 1100 ohms at room temp); check for cut or pinched wire or loss of contact F4 Shorted oven temperature sensor circuit Same as above; check for melted connector or both leads shorted to ground F8 Component failure within Electronic Range Control (ERC) effecting temp processing circuits Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC) F9 Problem with door lock circuit such as pinched wire between Electronic Range Control (ERC) and door lock switch Check wiring and test operation of switch

Oven beeping f1 and f3


Here are the error codes for your range:

F1 Circuit board defective Replace control board F2 1. The oven temp has risen above 665F and the door is not locked or
2. The temp has risen above 965F with the door locked 1. Check oven temp in mode that failure occurred. Replace EOC (Electronic Oven Control) if above limits
2. Check 8-pin connector. Check and replace oven temperature sensor if necessary F3 Oven temperature sensor is open (above 3000 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for open wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F4 Oven temperature sensor is shorted (below 500 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for shorted wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F5 Internal watchdog circuit has detected a failure Defective EOC (Electronic Oven Control) F6 Shorted buttons Check push buttons and dome switches on control F8 Logic interrupted (lock motor switch sequence) Check door lock switches and wiring

Most likely problem is the oven temp. sensor. Should check around 1100 ohms at room temp. I would replace that first because it is the easiest and cheaper than an oven control.
