Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore gas oven takes a long time to preheat, doesn't stay hot, appears to cycle on and off rapidly 362.75492000

A:

Thanks for contacting manage my life about your range/oven model 362.75492000; sorry to hear you are having a problem. Based on your description of the burner going on and off constantly I suggest that you check the voltage to the igniter and valve, if the power is cycling on and off the issue is most likely the control.( trace the circuit to verify)  If the power is constant the  valve and igniter should be considered.  I hope this helps you, if you need more help reply with added details and I will be happy to respond.  Should you need parts here is a link to Sears Parts Direct.  If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services.Ron H.

Q:

What does "F2" Overheat Code indicate on Kenmore range model 362.75492000?

A:

The oven temperature sensor is shown in the first image below. It protrudes the top of the inside back oven wall. This is the most suspect component based on your symptoms.

You will need a volt/ohm meter to test the oven sensor. If you do not have one, you can normally purchase a meter for less than $20 at your local Sears or hardware store.

Unplug the range to disconnect electrical power. If it is difficult to access the outlet plug, you can shut off the house breaker to the range outlet instead of unplugging the range to disconnect electrical power.

If you see screws on the inside of the oven cavity back wall that secure the oven temperature sensor probe then you should be able to remove these screws and then carefully pull the probe into the oven cavity until you can access the wire disconnect plug. Pull gently so that you do not unplug the sensor or damage the wires. You may need to remove the oven door to be able to reach the sensor easier. The second image below shows an oven sensor being pulled into the oven cavity in this manner. If you are able to access the disconnect plug in this manner then you can unplug the sensor (with the range still unplugged) and measure the resistance through the sensor with a volt/ohm meter. (NOTE: Do not let the wire for the sensor shrink back through the back of the oven cavity or you will need to fish it back out to plug the sensor back in.) You should measure about 1100 ohms at room temperature. If the resistance is high (over 1200 ohms) then the sensor will need to be replaced. You can order the sensor from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the sensor is WB21X5301 (it is the part shown in the first image below). If you replace this sensor, you may need to cut the disconnect plug off the wire harness and connect the wires for the new harness using the ceramic wire nuts provided with the sensor if the plug on the new sensor will not fit your disconnect plug on the range.

If the sensor mounting screws are not visible from inside the oven cavity then you may need to access the sensor from behind the range to check it. You can also check it from the control board (with the range unplugged) by using the procedure in the third image to access the control board in the console. The sensor connects to the control board through the 5 pin connector. The sensor circuit has the white wires. If you measure the resistance through the white wires that connect to the control board, you should see the same resistance of 1100 ohms through this circuit. If not, you could have a failed sensor or a problem with the wire harness.

If the sensor is okay at room temperature, you could have a failed electronic oven control board. In rare situations, you could have a sensor that is measuring high resistance at bake temperature so that the sensor would still need to be replaced. The sensor is normally replaced before the control board since it is a less expensive part.

These tips may help you resolve this F2 problem in your range.

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 .
