Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore Gas Range #3627585590: Error Code F2 when cooking pizza at about 450 degrees. I see this can be of 4 possible reasons.

A:

If you only see the F2 code when you are cooking the pizza at 450 degrees, then you could have a problem with the oven temperature sensor. That code indicates an over-temperature condition in the oven. If the control detects a temperature above 624 degrees through that sensor, then the F2 code will be displayed.

See if the broiler cycles off and on at lower temperatures. See if the temperature is regulated properly in a normal bake cycle set at 400 degrees. If the range works properly under those conditions, then you may not have a problem with the temperature sensor. See if the F2 is displayed if you set the broiler at 450 degrees with nothing in the oven. If the broiler works properly under those conditions then you may have steam or smoke coming up off of the pizza that is heating that sensor over the 624 degrees. If you still get the F2 even with nothing under the broiler then you will probably need to replace that temperature sensor probe in the oven.

The procedure for removing the sensor probe is shown in the image below. Unplug the range before accessing internal components.

Here is a link that shows how to test that component with a volt/ohm meter: Oven Sensor Testing .

That sensor is part number WB21X5301. You can order it from the Sears PartsDirect website.

NOTE: That sensor costs around $75. There is chance that replacing just that component may not fix your problem. You may also need to have the electronic clock control board in the console repaired. That clock control board is not available as a replacement part. If it is bad, it would need to be pulled out of the range and sent to a repair facility to be rebuilt.

I hope that these troubleshooting tips help. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

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 .
