When I turn the oven on, I am getting a F10 code on the digital readout and it has a beeping alarm. It will not re-set, the only way to turn off is to unplug the Range. The cooktop surface works fine. What does the F10 ERROR code mean?
Answer Hello Steve,
The F-10 error code indicates the control has sensed a runaway temperature. You need to test the temperature sensor 316490001. It should read about 1100 ohms at about 70°F. If it tests good and the wiring checks good, the clock 316418500 will have to be replaced.
The Oven is not heating up, The Preheat and oven is on.
Answer Hello Donna. Test for 3.2-3.6 volts AC at the gas safety valve with the igniter turned on. If the voltage is there, you have a bad safety valve. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter will need to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
My oven keeps giving me an F3 code when it reaches temp and then shuts off is something I can replace?
You will want to check the oven sensor resistance. The resistance value should be approximately 1090 ohms. If outside this then replace the sensor and if it checks ok then replace the control board.
Oven heats up but does not stop at set temperature and food is being burnt.
Answer Hello Rick. You will need to do the 10 minute test. Preheat to 350°. Then once preheated, you will open the door and put in a digital meter with temperature TJMA-DMT3. Take the temperature the oven turns the element back on, and then the shut off temp. Keep up with this for 3 or 4 cycles of the relays. Then average the bottom number and the top numbers and get the average of each. Then add the top to the bottom numbers and divide by 2. You should be around 350°. If not, and the sensor tested good, replace the control in the unit.
My oven element does not work but stove top and broiler does and clock display works and oven and preheat light comes on. Would this be a bad element ?
Answer Hello Jerry,
It is very possible that the bake element is what has failed. You will want to do a voltage check from L1 to bake on the control board to make sure that power is going to bake element and check across the terminals fo the bake element for voltage. Across both you should have 240vac.You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

Please give instructions for installing Probe Part# AP3969435 thanks Dickie
Answer Dickie, You'll need to: Remove power to the range, slide the range out of the cabinet opening. " Removing oven sensor: 1. Disconnect power and remove back panel. 2. Unplug wires to the sensor. 3. Remove the two screws holding the sensor to the back of the range."
Reverse the procedure and test the range oven for heat and error codes.
Greetings! My wife and I have noticed that our oven doesn't seem to heat consistently - sometimes it'll be a ~ 10 degrees cool, sometimes 15 degrees too hot. We're using a standard bimetal spring oven thermometer (which I know isn't the most accurate temperature measuring device). That being said, the things we bake don't seem to come out consistently done at the same time (cookies, cakes, etc.). What can I do to figure out what's wrong with our oven? Thanks!
Answer Joe, You want to get an accurate thermometer or multimeter with a probe and temperature setting TJMA-DMT3 place the thermometer or temp. probe in the cenetr of the oven cavity and pre heat the oven for at least 15 minutes. Allow the oven to cycle at least three cycles after the pre heat. make note of the temperaturwes, average the temperature readings after the three cycles , if the average hi temperature is within 225 dgrs. of the set temperature, your oven is working properly. If you wish, most controls can now be calbrated to within 5 dgrs. of the temp. setting, those instructions are usually in the owners manual.
