The F4 error code on this type of range indicates that you have a problem with the oven temperature sensor probe circuit. This is normally caused by a bad oven temperature sensor probe but could also be caused by a problem with the wiring harness or a failed electronic oven control board. A technician will normally check the resistance of the temperature sensor probe first. If you are able to unplug the range and pull this sensor out, you can check the resistance yourself with a volt/ohm meter. The image below shows how to access this component in most ranges. If you do not see screws on the inside of the oven cavity that mount this sensor on the inside back wall then you will need to access it from the outside back panel of the range. Once you unplug this sensor from the wire harness you can measure the resistance through it. It should measure about 15 ohms at room temperature. If it does, then the sensor is likely okay. You can plug it back into the harness and measure the resistance through the wires that connect this circuit to the electronic control board to check the wire harness between the sensor and the control board. To access the control board in the console (with the range still unplugged), remove the 6 screws that secure the end caps of the console to the backguard (4 on top and 2 on bottom). Pull the bottom of the panel out while pushing the top of the panel back to free the tabs on the back of the panel. Once you release the console, lay it down on the cooking surface. The sensor circuit is connected to the control board through the white wires on the 5-wire plug. Unplug this connector and measure the resistance through the sensor circuit from the control board. This circuit should measure the same resistance as the sensor (around 15 ohms). If the resistance is significantly different, then the wire harness is bad and will need to be replaced. If the resistance through the sensor circuit is normal then the electronic oven control board will likely need to be replaced. You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

These tips should help you fix this problem. If you need more help, submit additional details and we will try to assist you further.
