SOURCE: kenmore oven touch panel error codes f1 f3 f5 f7, oven failure

I had the same problem. It occurred when it was in a cleaning cycling. I fot the F3 Fasult and also the door remained locked. I let it cool down overnight and killed the power at the circuit breaker. I turned the power on and got a F3 alarm and the door remained locked. I took our the screws holding the control panel and pull it out far enough to give me access to the locking mechanisim. I took out the screw holding the locking latch to the motor. With the latch loose, iwas able to get move it out of the door lock. With the door now open I was able to get to the temperature sensor with was held with two sheet mmetal screws. The screw were impossible to get out, so I ground off the heads with a Dremel tool. I couldn't get the sensor wires out. So I pulled the unit out to get at the back sde. I cut the old sensor wires and was able to get in the hole to remove the screws with a pair of needle nose pliers. I installed a new sensor and with wire nuts attached the sensor wires to the computer wires. Make sure that you work the insulation in the hole to plug it back up. Put the oven back in and installed the sensor in the oven with two small sheet metal screws. . refasten the locking latch to the locking latch motor. turn on the power and everything was fine. I ohmmed out the old sensor and it was 180 ohms at room temperature. The replacement checked out at a 1000 ohms in accordance with the schematic for the control. By the way, the schematic was neatly folded on the control panel when I removed it I used a Whirlpool sensor Part No. 12001656 which was half the price of a Kenmore sensor. +

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite slide in range F30 error

I had the same F30 error problem but fixed it. On my professional series Frigidaire, there are 2 resettable red button locations. I discovered that only one is in the rear of the oven. After going to the breaker box and shutting off the power, pull out the stove enough to work, unscrew the rear screws (I didn't unscrew all of them, just enough to work back there). The small red button is on a small black round piece with two purple wires feeding to it. That was not my problem. Mine was the other red button behind the control panel. Pull off all 4 knobs, unscrew by hand the large black rings that are underneath the knobs, pull out the whole panel. Look back and right (below where the right knobs were located) to find the 2nd red small button. Push to reset. Check this one first since it is easier to do.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite slide in range F30 error

The solution just provided by sellingdj, posted on 2/17, worked for me. I tried all the others even ordering part for $100. After one year of being without an oven (hooked up my old one in basement), all I had to do was remove the front panel (by removing knobs and black rings), resetting red button. IT WORKED!!!

Thank you so much!!

SOURCE: error code f7 on Kenmore wall oven 911.41165791

There is a probelm with the control panel. You can fix it for about a penny. The panel has a printed ribbon cable that plugs into the relay board. The ribbon cable is actually two cables pressed together, which can be seperated by simply lifting them apart. The ribbon cable has a defect in that the plasic insulation is defective, causing the leads between the two ribbons to cross, or short circuit. Simply place a thin sheet of paper between them, and make sure you push the paper down all of the way to the plastic housing, fold over the edges around the cable, you are done.

How do I override the sabbath feature on the elite dual fuel range?

since each model and each manufacturer operating procedures are different, it is best to read the instruction direct from your owners operating instruction booklet that came with the unit. If you don't have one, you can usually order one from sears parts direct for your specific model.

Kenmore oven take a long time to heat up, but bakes just fine once it reaches temperature. Is there anything I can do to speed up the heating process?

Start earlier?
>> check all elements for current,
check seals
check temperature calibration (allowed to be 15% ie 180 can be 153 or 207 Celsius!) no wonder Margs' scones cook faster at her house :-)

Kenmore Elite Gas Oven f1 message


Error code F1 means that an error with the keypad has occurred. Usually it happens due to loose ribbon cable on the keypad or the electronic control assembly itself going bad. To resolve this issue first, disconnect the power to unit and then gain access to the back of the clock assembly (Electronic Range Control/ERC). Now unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC, it would be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide and make sure that the cable is not broken and nothing is shorted on the keypad. After this is done insert the cable back and then plug the unit back to check. If the error is still there then the electronic control board should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

It seems that the control board is faulty. You would need to get the board repaired since it is no longer available for purchase from the manufacturer. You get the board fixed from at the lowest price compare to the rest of competitors online.
