Question and Answers

Q:

e 31

A:

I provided information about that E 31 code in the image below. I recommend that you have a service technician diagnose and repair this type of failure. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services . There are many wires inside that cook top. Those wires need to be routed properly when the cook top is reassembled after the inside is accessed for service. If you open this cook top on your own, there is a chance that it may not work properly unless it is properly reassembled. If you are completely confident that you can shut off the house circuit breaker to completely disconnect electrical power and access the components, then you may be able to perform the troubleshooting that his shown below for that fault code 31. Be sure that you reassemble the cook top properly. If you need parts, you can order them from the Sears PartsDirect website.

Be sure that you completely disconnect electrical power to the cook top before accessing internal components and replacing parts.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

Q:

what is an f 31 code on a kenmore 79071452601 stove

A:

The F31 code indicates a shorted oven temperature sensor probe on this model of range. Barbara H provided a previous answer that describes troubleshooting for this type of problem. Most of the time, you will need to replace the oven temperature sensor probe to correct this type of problem. If you look inside the oven and see the probe mounted on the back inside wall of the oven cavity as shown in the image below, then you can access it and check it from the front of the range as shown. Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing internal components. If you do not see mounting screws inside the oven cavity then you will need to unplug the range and remove the lower back panel to access the oven probe wire harness plug. The probe has violet wires going to it. If the probe measures around 1100 ohms of resistance then it should be okay. You can check the circuit from the electronic control board (through the violet wires) by removing the upper back panel (with the range still unplugged). This should help you fix this problem on your own. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician.
