Question:

What does error code f3e2 mean on the control panel when my oven beeps slowly and constantly until we turn off the oven?

Marianne for model number TES325MQ0
Answer:

Hello Marianne, thank you for contacting us. That code is telling you the electronic control on the range detected a high temperature in the oven. This can be caused by a defective oven temperature sensor or the electronic range control board. You can test the temperature sensor (probe) with a multimeter. Hope this helps!

Question:

How do you test the temperature sensor (probe) with a multimeter?

Jim for model number KERS202BWH0
Answer:

Hi Jim, Thank you for your inquiry. To test your probe with a multi-meter. First you must set your meter to the lowest setting. Then calibrate your meter so that the needle is on zero. Disconnect the power to your appliance and then remover your sensor. At the end of your sensor, the little plug in has two separate holes on the inside. Take the probes on each end of your meter, place one in each hole. If your meter stays at zero, your sensor will need to be replaced. I hope this helps!

Question:

The broil function does not work. Bake function works fine. Could it be part # wpw10181986?

Jack for model number RF362LXSQ 0
Answer:

Hi Jack, Thank you for your question. I doubt that it is that part, but it does not hurt to test it anyway to make sure. You can test that sensor with a multi meter to make sure. However you should also test your broil element itself. It is likely that that is the part that is giving you trouble. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

Can you just clean the heat sensor before you replace it completely?

Nikki
Answer:

Hello Nikki, thank you for contacting us. Cleaning the oven sensor will not fix it if it is faulty. It would need to be replaced. If you want to remove it from the oven and test it at room temperature, the Ohms should be around 1080. Hope this helps!

While trying to bake, the entire stove shuts off. It stays off for a minute of two, and then turns back on, but have lost the oven temp. When i reset the bake temp, oven turns back on for a while, then entire stove shuts off. I suspect the oven does not ever get up to full temperature.

Question:

Why is the temperature 25 degrees less in our oven? Why when the oven is set for 350 does it only reach 325 degrees?

Richard for model number Rf111pxsq1
Answer:

Hi Richard, Thank you for the question. This sounds like an issue with the Oven Sensor, PartSelect Number: PS11749737.This oven temperature sensor, for ranges, works together with the oven control board to measure and regulate the oven temperature.Testing the temperature sensor probe on your oven is easy. With the sensor at room temperature, measure the resistance between the two prongs at the end of the sensor connector. The resistance of the sensor should read approximately 1080 – 1090 ohms at room temperature. Hope this helps!

Question:

I recently ran a self cleaning cycle and now when i set my oven temp the bottom and broiler elements come on as they should but the bottom element will shut off at the correct temperature but the broiler element stays on causing the high oven temp to trigger a shut down. Maybe the temp sensor?

Jerry for model number RF364PXPQ0
Answer:

Hi Jerry, Thank you for your question. Yes that would be my first thought as to what part is causing the issue. I would suggest testing it with a multi meter to check. You temperature sensor should read 1000 - 1100 ohms at room temperature. If that part is working I would suggest then checking your bake and broil elements, they should read anywhere between 0 - 50 ohms. If all three of those parts are fine, then it would be your control board that is the issue. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Earlier I asked a question "when my oven preheat alarm goes off, the indicator reads 350 but the oven actual temp is only 250." I replaced the oven temperature sensor and I am still have the issue.

Hi when we turn the oven on the top oven element does not work, but comes on when placed on the boiler mode. What needs to be replaced.Thanks

Barry for model number RF111PXSQ1

Lisa for model number WFE381LVS0

Hello Lisa, thank you for contacting us. It could be the oven sensor, it could also be the heating elements, or the control board. You will want to test these parts with a multi meter to determine which is at fault. Good luck with the repair!

Question:

My oven functions and then shuts off. I can hear the igniter clicking over and over again but the pilot does not light. Eventually the oven shuts off. Seems to happen intermittently but when baking for longer periods of time. I had a service person out about 2 years ago and they changed the igniter. Oven worked for a few months then same thing happened again. I changed the igniter again last year and it worked again for a few months. Do you think this is still a faulty igniter or something else?

Jeff for model number WFG374LVS0
Answer:

Hi Jeff, Thank you for your question. It may be your igniter again that is the issue. However you can also check your temperature sensor. You can test that part with a multimeter to tell if it is working or not. If it is working, it could be your spark module that is the issue. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Temperature not accurate after 3 1/2 years of happy usage

Opened up the back of the stove. Unpluged the sensor. Replaced the sensor. Replace the back of the stove.

The sensor that has been replaced is not what is expected. After reading all of the instructions for adjusting the temperatures, the only temp that stays steady is when we first turn on the oven to 350 degrees. That stays steady but when I turn it to 400 it slowly goes up to 425 degrees.
