Question about Kitchen Ranges
The oven has always worked very well. Now it won't heat up at all and the code reads F5. What does that mean, can I fix it myself?
Code Condition Check/Repair F2 Oven temperature above specifications 8-pin connector oven temperature sensor to the Electronic Range Control (ERC) F3 Open oven temperature sensor Check wiring harness, replace oven temperature sensor if necessary F4 Shorted oven temperature sensor Check wiring harness, replace oven temperature sensor if necessary F5 Pushbutton stuck Check for binding of pushbuttons and control panel glass.

SOURCE: f5 code on a kenmore range
The f5 indicates a loss of the relay drive circuit. To correct you can turn the power off to the range at the breaker box and wait about 10 minutes, then turn back on. This will reset the board. If the error returns you will need to replace the electronic range control (ERC). The part number for the control is # 338692 price $338.49 at Sears or My price $299.99 delivered. Good luck to you and please dont forget to rate me.

Place a hammer handle between the door and the frame at the hinges..
Push on the door, carefully.
This usually works to re-seat the door hinges.

i phoned Sears about error code f13 on a gas range, and was told to unplug the range for 30 minutes. i think she meant 30 seconds - to reprogram the microchip. i unplugged it for 15 minutes or so, then reconnected, and it worked.

E-1 F-5 is a faulty door latch switch. Try to turn breaker off to stove for about 30 seconds then turn breaker on while someone is pushing against oven door to relieve pressure. If this does not work try selecting self-clean mode again and then cancel it. If none of these work you will need to replace the lock latch assembly. Hope this helps.
