Question about Kenmore 40494 / 40495 / 40499 Electric Single Oven
The Kenmore drop-in range model no. 45461-45468-45565-45569 is not showing the F error codes, it is only showing all 888888 across the screen. It will not allow any settings to work....clock, bake, timer, etc. therefore it does not work. The stove-top works perfectly. The manual only shows F error code fixes. I believe the stove works and just needs some sort of code to reset it. I believe it to be related to a power surge however it is receiving power, just stuck on the 8888888 screen. Any advice is appreciated. thanks
You're stove must be perfectly fine, but the thing displaying all those options may have a problem. Try to get this fixed as soon as possible.

Tips for a great answer:
The error code message F3 E0 indicates an open oven sensor circuit. This is the component that regulates the oven temperature.
First disconnect electrical power to the range. Pull the range out & remove the rear panel to the control area. Unplug the 2 violet wires on P3 5-6. You will need to have a meter for testing, set the meter to read ohms (resistance). Place the leads from the multimeter across the 2 violet wires, the meter should read 1080ohms if the sensor is good. If you do not get the correct reading you will need to replace the oven temp sensor.
The oven temp sensor is mounted to the inside of the oven cavity. You will need to remove the lower section of the rear panel to access the sensor connector. Unplug the sensor & slide it back into the oven cavity to remove & replace.
