Question about Kenmore 91112 / 91114 / 91117 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

F-3 error code

I have a Kenmore range Model 911.9358810 I intermittently comes on even when we are not using the oven. It also sometimes comes on when using the oven or broiler but not all the time. I've read from other comments and solutions that the oven sensor may be bad, what's a good test before I spend the $73.00 for a new sensor?

    Jsrock516,
    Thanks for the info on the probe. Pulled it out last night and at room temp. it checked out ok at 1,100 ohms. Any other suggestions?

    I'll give it a try, placing the probe into hot water and seeing if the resistance changes. Sorry to keep throwing new wrinkles into the mix but this morning the F-3 appeared and we hadn't used the stove or the oven since the night before.

    Thanks again for the suggestion. I'll get the ceramic wire nuts and give it a try. I'll let you know how it goes.

F3 indicates a failed oven temperature sensor. Your model number indicates that your range is manufactured by Roper. They recommend measuring the resistance of the oven probe (at room temperature). It should read approx. 1100 ohms. If the reading is bad, replace the oven probe. This is a repair you can perform yourself. The probe is mounted on the back of the oven wall in either the upper left, or upper right-hand corner. The part number is 252618 and costs (like you said) about $73. If you need guidance on how to remove/replace or measure, let me know. I hope I do not insult your intelligence. I generally ask, because some people are not savvy when it comes to electronics. I hope this information is helpful.

    If you have the plug in style oven probe, the connector can cause problems if it is not making good contact. I have personally experienced this. Some manufacturers recommend clipping the plug and using ceramic (heat resistant) wire lugs to ensure a better (and more permanent) contact. It seems to be a problem with the plug pins becoming oxidized over time. If you have an intermittent F3 code, this could be the source of your problem. In addition, the probes are supposed to vary in resistance as they heat. A simple test is to unplug the range, remove the probe, connect a meter to the probe leads and dip the end of the probe in a glass of hot water to see if it changes in resistance. If the probe varies, more than likely it is still working and you may need to simply clean your connection contacts, or use the recommendation that I mentioned before. I hope this helps you.

    I don't mind the added wrinkles. That's what we're here for - to work out problems and try to save you money (if possible). If the oven probe checks out good, I have one more suggestion. Is the oven probe a plug in type? If so, sometimes the connector will oxidize and cause poor connectivity issues. This could also be the source of your intermittent or erratic error codes. The manufacturer recommends that you cut the connector off and use heat resistant ceramic wire lugs instead. This is supposed to provide a more reliable and (somewhat) permanent connection. Just thought I would add that BEFORE you go buying another probe just yet. Typically, if the probe reads correctly at room temperature and varies when heated, it's probably good. You can purchase the ceramic wire lugs at any appliance repair store, or major hardware store. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Why kenmore oven code f-10 comes on when bake or broil is on


I would first pull your range out from the wall, unplug your range, then take off the back access panel and ohm your oven sensor.

It should ohm out at 1100 ohms at room temperature.

If that checks good, then your control board is the problem.

Here's the oven sensor probe for your model:

Also
Sometimes shutting off the circuit breaker that the range or oven is connected to for 30 seconds will clear the fault, error or function code.

Also
F3 or F30 means that there may be a problem with the oven sensor.
Your oven sensor may need to be replaced.

My oven when turned on goes to F1 and the heat is like broil...only the top burner comes on????


Hello,Please use the chart to determine which stove you have. You will have to look at the model number. The first 3 numbers will be the series on the chart. In most cases an F1 error would require replacement of the electronic control. This part is commonly refered to as an EOC or ERC. However this type of repair is usually reserved for repair specialists.

KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes – 362 Series (General Electric)
F1 = Stuck Touch Pad Key - Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE - 911 Series (General Electric/Roper)

E1-F1 error on Kenmore Range


A persistant F1 error code usually means that the oven has exceeded the safe maximum operating temperature for the oven.

This is usually due to a faulty oven thermostat unit.

If the error code reappears after using the oven you should get the thermostat replaced.

Nothing Works Shows F3 Error


the F3 error code is an oven temperature sensor fault. The sensor is a small probe that sticks out of the back of the oven wall. They do go bad and can be easily replaced. If I had your EXACT model number (found along the inside of the oven door or lower drawer) you can replace it.hope this helps
