My issue is with my Fisher&Paykel Pepper Radiant oven and the fact that it doesn't seem to turn off the elements when the required temperature is reached.
This morning while baking I could smell my goodies burning and was dumbfounded as to why this could be happening as none of the ovens settings were different from all my other successful baking endeavors.
When I opened the oven all my buns were burnt and the temperature from the oven seemed to get hotter.
Any help with my over heating problem is greatly appreciated.

FIRST YOU NEED TO KNOW JUST HOW THE FAN WORKS, DOES IT WORK OFF OF ELECTRICITY OR IS THERE A COMPUTER CHIP IT WORKS OFF OF. DOSE IT WORK OFF OF JUST A SWITCH. LOOK UP ON LINE TO FIND A MANUAL FOR A FISSER & PAYKEL B1602CTE IT MAY TELL YOU WHY IT IS NOT WORKING.
Hi - theres a few components that may well cause this to happen - the power module which controls the heating & fans etc - isolating relay which switches the heater & fan relays - it only avctivates when a cook mode/cycle is selected.
One of the two components could be faulty - I guess a sparkie or techie may be your best option..
When you say that the oven turns on I assume that the oven indicator light is working. If this is so there will be only two likely causes for the oven not working. Oven element is faulty - check by performing continuity test; Wiring at oven element terminals burnt off - check visually. If you are handy carry out the above. If not, call a repairman.
This type of problem normally can be ascribed to a defective thermostat. Unfortunately there is no test for a thermostat, it has to be replaced to see if the problem has been sorted out.
One thing you can do is remove the thermostat bulb from the oven and place place it in a position where it will not heat up. Place an oven thermometer in the oven. Switch on and see of the temperature climbs above what you wee seeing before. This is a very much hands on test as you have no control over the temperature that the elements can get to. As soon as you see the temperature reach a point above that seen before, shut down immediately.
Google searches report that after running the self cleaning cycle this can happen.
I am experiencing this issue with my Fisher&Paykel AeroTech Double OD302 but with the BOTTOM oven. I'm concerned as Thanksgiving is coming up and I need this baby working!
hELLO THERE: on these ovens the f-3 can sometime be incorporated with the f-4 error code also so here is the code and the things to look for both ok ?
F3 - F4
sensor (circuit) (over 2700 ohms) or, shorted oven
sensor. Could be a result of: ·
on terminals ·
wire in oven temperature sensor circuit ·
solder joint on control.
power to range
and remove oven temperature sensor connector from
control. · Measure
oven temperature sensor resistance at oven
connector (take care not to damage terminals in
block) - Should
read 1100 ohms at room temperature (approx 72
degrees F). · Measure each oven
sensor lead from connector block to ground. If
for pinched or cut wire in oven temperature sensor
circuit. · Check connector
Look for deformed or corrosion on terminals. Repair
If all above is ok replace control.
