Model number is not complete and about 30 models start with "KESC307".
If you remove the two screws that hold in the sensor, Whirlpool part number 3148440, you can pull it out to cut and splice the wires together from inside the oven. Wire nuts are provided.
The part cost about $70.00.

My kitchen aid stove keeps displaying F2:E2 - Why? and what does that mean?


That code means that the oven is over heating.
Replacing the temp. sensor should do the trick. The sensor
is the rod that protrudes from the inside back wall of oven.Usually in the top left corner.

Oven won't heat


Sounds like you covered most of your bases. Only thing left is possible element bad or more probably the power board has a bad relay. The element is easy to replace and not too expensive. Power board is a little more difficult but is pretty expensive.

Kitchenaid superba f2e1. I have no idea what happened. I was cooking and then this code came up nothing works now. any suggestions?


Hi

F2-E1 Error indicates a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

KitchenAid Model KESC307 has a broken oven heating element. Can you fix this yourself? How? How much is part?


Hello Tgilreath,

I understand that you are having a problem with you KitchenAid range. The oven element is broken and needs replaced and you would like to know the cost of the element.

I can instruct you on how to change the element in your range. However, I do not know if it is the top of bottom element and the change procedure is the same on both of them. However, when looking up the element to tell you where you can purchase and the cost I came across many different KitchenAid models that contained the numbers you gave. There should be more letters and numbers on your tag for the model.

The following is steps are how you change out your element:

1. Disconnect the power to the unit
2. Remove the lower back cover on your range (the one that sits directly behind your oven)
3. Locate the two prongs on the bad element sticking thru the oven wall and remove the wires
4. In the oven remove the racks
5. In the oven remove the two screws holding the element in place
6. Remove the element by pulling in forward
7. Install new element in Reverse

You can locate the element on Sears Parts Direct at the following web-page, however you will need the full model number http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/kesc307?pathTaken=modelSearch&prst=0&shdMod=kesc307 You may also reply to this thread and I will get you a part number and the exact page you need to order the part.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

My kitchenaide gas range "beeps" when the temo is reached - say 350 but it actually takes almost 30 minutes for the oven to actually get to that temp. Why does it beep when the temp was actually +/- 275?


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.


Additional Information_ The oven control will sound a beep, if there are issues with the resistance transfer between the control and oven sensor. The sensor is located, inside of the oven, on the back side of the inside wall. It will look like a 5 inch probe. You will need to remove the sensor from the back of the unit. be sure to unscrew the screws that hold the housing on the inside of the oven back wall. once they are removed, the sensor can be extracted for testing. Use the sensor contacts for testing.

How do I replace the oven temperature sensor/thermal fuse in my Kitchaid oven?


Unplug the range.
Open the oven and look on the top left back wall of the oven to see the sensor protruding out. Unscrew the 2 screws holding the sensor and CAREFULLY pull it out.
Unplug the wire connector. Plug in the new sensor and CAREFULLY push the wires back inside.
Replace the screws.
Turn on the oven and bake me some cookies.

Model KEDT105V F-2 and F-3 flashing and beeping then turn the oven off? MOlson


Hi

The error code F-2 means that oven temp is too high; you need to :
1. Test operation of door lock on self-clean models
2. Test relay contact operation
3. High resistance in oven temperature sensor
Error F-3 means you need to open oven temperature sensor/thermal fuse and replace oven temperature sensor/thermal fuse.

Please revert for any further assistance and Do rate this solution as "FixYa" if found useful.
