Question and Answers

Q:

Why is the 4 month old ERC on my Kenmore range beeping F2 over & over again?

A:

The F2 code indicates that the ERC detects an oven over-temperature condition through the resistance of the oven sensor circuit. Since this is happening when the oven is not even on, it is apparent that the problem is either in the sensor circuit or the electronic control board. There are some factors that can cause a false F2 to be displayed. Here are some issues that could cause this problem:

  • Electrical interference such as a cordless telephone plugged into the same circuit as the range could cause a false F2.
  • Strong signals (such as from a ham radio in the vicinity) can be picked up by the sensor wire harness and cause the F2.
High resistance through the sensor wiring or a failed temperature sensor probe could also cause this problem.

The sensor circuit is connected to the ERC on the 6-pin connector on the side of the board. If you are able to shut off the breakers for the range to disconnect electrical power and access the ERC, you can check the resistance of the sensor circuit wiring through the connection on the board. The sensor circuit is on the pins 4 and 6 that are separated by a space. Unplug this connection (with electrical power disconnected) and measure the resistance with a volt/ohm meter. You should measure about 1100 ohms at room temperature. If resistance is high (over 1300 ohms), then a failed temperature sensor probe or a wiring problem would be causing this failure. If you are able to access the temperature probe and check the resistance directly at the probe, you can determine whether the failure is in the probe or the wiring. If you are not able to safely access these components, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair this problem.

Q:

What does F2 error code mean on my stove?

A:

Without the model number of your range I will not be able to give you a specific answer. F2 error code can have a different meaning for different models. Most likely it is a temperature sensor probe or an electronic oven control board failure or the oven temperature has risen above 665F and door unlocked or above 965F with door locked. Check oven temperature sensor.

Resubmit your question with the model number for a specific meaning of your F2 error code.

Q:

stove tappan model number-30-3860-23/03 keep saying OFF

A:

I know how important it is to have a good working range in the home so that you can cook a nice cooked meal. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I suggest you add to the thread of this question and include the full model number of your appliance so that the expert can provide you with a more detailed answer. I did manage to find a link in where you can enter your appliance model number and the owners manual will pop up. I hope my link is useful.

A:

Your symptoms point to a failure in the electronic control board that is housed in that console. If you are able to unplug the range and remove that component, you can send it to Core Centric Solutions for repair. The replacement control board part is no longer available. If you decide to have that board repaired, you can call Core Centric Solutions at 1-866-737-2244 to arrange the shipment of that control board. The control board part number is 5303269513.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

But, what would the cost of the repair be if I had it done by a Sears technician? And how can I be sure that this will solve the problem?

A:

The cost of repair for the control board by Core Centric Solutions is normally around $150. The labor cost for the Sears Technician is normally around $140. The repair of the range by a technician would probably be around $300. Based on the age of that range, I recommend that you consider replacing it instead of repairing it. You can view new models of ranges on the Sears.com website. If you need more help, let us know.
