While on the bake setting my Kenmore oven heated up, but only on the broiler element. The display read E2 F3 and I couldn't shut the oven off. I eventually had to turn the breaker off to stop it. Do I need a new temperature sensor or is it something else?
Answer Hello Joe,
The E2-F3 error code indicates that the electronic oven control board in the range senses an over-temperature condition in the oven, (known by technicians as "runaway temperature"). This can be caused by a temperature sensor probe 8273340 out of tolerance, a wiring problem between the sensor and the control board, or an electronic control board relay failure. If the oven is not heating when this error code appears, (unit not turned on), then you probably have an out-of-tolerance temperature sensor probe. To test with an ohm-meter, it should read about 1100O at room temperature, (70°F). If the oven is overheating, then you likely have a stuck relay on the electronic oven control board 8523665.
The oven doesn't stay on. It keeps turning off. Please advise.
Answer Hello Jun,
This sounds like a bad connection. Once the control is set, the relay continues to pass the current until the primary voltage to the relay is discontinued. This will only happen when the off button is pressed or something else stops the voltage supply from being available to the primary relay coil. I would start at the breaker and work toward the unit. I have found many issues with the receptacles and power cords are losing connection. The power cord will lose connection at the terminal block if the nuts are not tightened sufficiently. If the receptacle is losing connection, there will be a burned spot on one of the prongs that go into the receptacle.
My oven occasionally when baking will heat up rapidly and give a code E2 F3 and when I hit cancel it says "cooling". Is this the part I need, AP3037062, or is something else going on?
Answer Hello Emily. If it is rapid heating, it sounds like the control 6610201 has a relay that is sticking and the temperature probe is shutting the unit off. Based on that information, it sounds like the control will need to be replaced.
Hi, for the past year or so my oven temp has been too low and getting worse. When pre-heating to 350 the temp is only about 280 according to oven thermometer after 10 minutes. Self clean ran properly but did not improve the situation. Both the broil and bake elements (top and bottom) glow orange with no breaks or dark spots. Is replacing this sensor the next logical step?
Answer Pika, How accurate is your oven thermometer ? The oven temperature is a good Idea if the oven temperature is consistently higher or lower than the selected temperature, or never reaches a higher temperature. I would not expect your range to reach 350 dgrs. in 10 minutes, more like 15 to 20 minutes is more reasonable. At 280 dgrs in 10 minutes, your oven would be "temperred" but not properly pre heated and ready to maintain the set temperature. Thanks and Good Luck
The fault code said that the RTD was faulty. The only part I could find on your web site was AP3037062. Is this the same thing
Answer Russell, You're on top of it, Yes the RTD sensor and the oven temp sensor are the same part, just a different terminology. So the 8273340 is the part you will need to order to repair the range. Thanks and Good Luck.
How do I know this will work for part #8273340 as shown in my parts manual? You list AP3037062 but don't even call it by name.
Answer Hello Zeb! The part number 8273340 is the manufacturer part number which matches our internal part number of 8273340. The part is listed as a sensor. This is the oven sensor used on your model 665.95781000. Thanks!
