We cannot get the oven to go into timed bake. As soon as we set the temp. cook time, then press the time bake button we get an ERR. Any ideas?
Answer Hello Al. It depends on the error code you are getting. It could be voltage, stuck button, or bad board. Could also be oven sensor error. There should be a tech shhet on the unit to help you determine what is wrong.
?• Measure each sensor lead from connector block to ground. If shorted, look for pinched or cut wire in sensor circuit. • Check connector terminals - Look for deformed or corrosion on terminals. Repair or replace. • Check connector at sensor (remove sensor and carefully pull leads with connector into oven) • If all above is ok replace control. FAILURE MEANING CORRECTION CODE -F0--F1--F7-Stuck key pad or transistor failure. May mean relay is turned on. If code cannot be cancelled, replace control. -F2-Also see fan thermal switches Indicates that oven is over temperature in one of the following modes within either a cooking or clean mode of operation. •Control senses oven temperature • Look for welded relay contacts. (Heating elements on in off mode). • Look for high resistance in the sensor circuit due to high contact resistance (poor terminal crimp, deformed terminals, loose connection inside sensor tube) or intermittent solder joint. • Electrical noise interference in the sensor circuit (Ham radio, cordless phone etc.). • Control senses oven temperature above 930°F with the door in the door locked mode. -F3--F4-Open sensor (circuit) (over 2700 ohms) Shorted sensor (circuit) (under 950 ohms) Could be result of contamination on terminals, pinched harness lead, or cold solder joint on control. • Disconnect power to range. • Disconnect sensor connector at control. Measure sensor resistance at control connector (take care not to damage terminals in block) - Should read 1100W at room ambient (approx. 72°F). -FC-Check wiring and test operation of switches. Perform resistance check. Problem with door lock circuit such as pinched wires between control and door lock switches. -FF-Door motor safety switch transistor failure Replace control. -F5-Loss of relay drive circuit • Press Clear/Off and reprogram control. If -F5- code reappears, replace control. • Check sensor circuit. • Check lock circuit. If all above check OK the F5 code can be a result of a momentary loss of power (DO NOT REPLACE CONTROL AND LOCK.) Check lock circuit. above 630°F withthe door circuit in the unlock mode. NOTE:Connections can be intermittent due to a corrosive buildup between the connection to the terminals, or by being bent by the insertion of a probe, etc.
