Kenmore Oven Beeps "F2"

0 0EmailPrintFollow

My Kenmore oven keeps beeping F2. I lost my manual. Without calling the repair man, which will cost a fortune, does anyone know how to fix it?

I can't open the door after I cleaned oven. Nothing but the clock works. HELP

Editor's Note: One thing that might help is unplugging the stove for a while. It may not open until it is cool, also.

My dishwasher lights just blinked and wouldn't do anything. I was about to call a repairman when I read something in the manual about them not covering repairs if it is the fault of the circuit breaker. I flipped the switch on and off and it was fine after that. I have to do that a lot with our computer also....resets everything in the "brain" as Beverly said. Electronics these days.

(sent in by email) The oven door ( latch ) is not working properly , try pulling it outward by hand. This happened when I had removed the door for cleaning. The door wasn't closing completely .That was causing my "F 2 " problem. My manual said call a repairman , but my son in law fixed my problem by just resetting the latch. Try it first.

I DON'T HAVE ANY OTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THE KENMORE F7 ISSUE. SORRY!

We have a Kenmore oven, and ours did something very similar (F7 error). My husband was able to fix it with a piece of paper. He loves problem-solving, and he found through research that ours was a common problem with Kenmore ovens and was caused by a design defect.

Here's a link to the page where my husband found out about the issue: http://tinyurl.com/2ypr95. You would need to e-mail the poster to get the info on how to fix.

Try going to the mfgr's website and find the model no of the product. Many mfgrs' website has owner's manuals in pdf file (you will need Adobe to read the file, and you can get free download on Adobe's website), then you can just look under "trouble-shoot" to see why your oven is giving you that message

good luck

Bonnie,
Mine would flash PF after or when I had a storm. It seems to me the repair man told me that it did that because of an interuption. Unhook the stove for 30 seconds and then hook it back up...this "resets" the brain. Hope this helps... angel1 AT arkwest.com

Mine did that when the power went out.

I do not have a Kenmore oven -- mine is a Hotpoint, but I think that they may be similar. My suggestion is that you touch the clear/off pad. If that doesn't work, possibly unplugging the oven from the power source, leaving it for about 30 minutes, then plugging it back in may help. Additionally, perhaps your manual is available online at the Sears website. Good luck.
