F4 usually relates to a temperature sensor fault. Meaure the temp sensor at ambient temp and it should measure approx. 1K . If it doesn't, then replace. However, and a big however, I've seen frequent faults such as these where the control board is at fault. The proper procedure is to verify the sensor though first before replacing control board.

Fulgor 300 series double oven top oven works fine, bottom oven locked code reads f4. What can I do?


f4 means a problem has occurred with the oven door latch mechanism. Try unplugging the power to the oven and then wait 1 minute and turn back on, this may clear the problem, if not you need to call a qualified service technician for Fulgor products

When baking in top oven for any period of time my oven will start beeping with an F4 blinking on the oven temp screen? What is it trying to tell me?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F4 error code indicates a open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you wan to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. However, I believe it is the sensor as the problem is only with bottom oven. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Hi, the F2 error code means that the oven is overheating for an unknown reason. F3 and F4 indicate a problem with the oven sensor, which usually requires replacing the sensor.

Kenmore ovens flashes -F4- when I try to set it to bake? What does this mean?


Hello,

The problem likely originates from the oven temperature sensor. While not all but most manufacturer's use the "F4" code for a shorted or open sensor, you'll need to provide your model number to be certain. If you are able, check the value of the sensor, it should be approx. 1100ohms at room temperature, if not, replace it.

**Unplug the unit from the wall before performing any service**

hope that helps,

Good Luck :)

Err on display when I try to set the bake temperature


Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
or try doing this
1. Turn the clock selector knob to OFF
2. “Tweak” the oven control by turning the clock selector knob slightly to the left (counter clockwise). This may stop the flashing message/beeping and clear the display window.

Kenmore double oven f4 fault code - door locked.


We had the F4 problem and called Sears repa. They sent someone out. The guy opened the panel above the bottom oven (we have a double oven) and hit a reset button - then charged us $75. This has worked on several occasions (my husband did it after that). But then that didn't work and Sear's told us it was the electronic panel which they replaced twice. Now it's (F4) happened again on the top oven only on a brand new electronic panel. So I guess it's the heat sensor this time.
