For Kenmore 7903019400 wall oven error code F 11, the touchpad/keyboard is the replacement part called the clock/timer? as clock/timer or range control panel are only parts listed? so which part is it
Sears tech giving differing parts to fix without seeing it. Got F 11 code just minutes into oven pre heating. I disconnected it for a while then reconnected seemed fine, but after trying to turn oven on and preheat it again showed F 11 error and deafing beeping, only clears after unplugging it. So I read advise on hear about disconnecting the ribbons on mother board to see if F 11 comes back. When I did this only the clock came back on flashing and keyboard don't work but no F11 and no beeping, so I assume that the motherboard is bad right? Aready replaced this once. So looking up part it only shows 1) range control panel or 2) clock/timer, so which part is it I need to fix this? one tech said control panel another guy says clock timer! who's right? doesn't the F11 code help to find right part? No F 11 when ribbons disconnected from motherboard and when it is connected and before it goes to F 11 the keyboard works fine setting temps and the clock and stuff so not sure what part I need, HELP!

Re: for Kenmore 7903019400 wall oven error code F 11, the...
F11 means a shorted button on the button board. This could actually be a shorted button, or it could be a bad connection to the embedded microprocessor. There is literally no way to tell without actually testing the unit. If the EOC module (electronic operator control) comes with a button pad, change them both out if you can't test them separately. Kenmore has other manufacturers make their equipment for them (frigidaire, whirlpool, electrolux, etc), so the generic equivalent board may be cheaper to buy somewhere else than sears. Your local appliance service center will know what parts fit what sears models. The model number you provided is useless to me.

This Usually indicates a shorted keypad. Turn off at the breaker. Unplug
membrane strip connected to the clock from the clock, turn breaker on. If code comes back replace
the clock, if no code you need the touchpad replaced
First please get the full model number of the range. Kenmore products are made by other manufacturers and the error codes will depend on the manufacturer.
Most likely, you have a Frigidaire range (for example a 970. model). Then the F14 code could indicate a problem with the P12 ribbon cable connector tail, a bad EOC (control unit), or touchpad. First try disconnecting and reconnecting that cable. Next the EOC should be replaced. Finally the touchpad should be replaced.
If this is a brand new range, contact Sears to get a repair person to fix the range. If you bought it used, see the above possible solutions.
Hello there: Please read the entire solution i have provided it doe4s cover things that you have said has already been checked but there is more to it It won't bake or broilIf
neither the oven nor the broiler heats, but the range burners still
work, the clock may be set for a timed or self-cleaning cycle. Check to
be sure the clock buttons and knobs are set properly. If your clock has a
knob that says "push for man(ual)," push the knob in and try heating
the oven and broiler again. If they still don't work properly, you
probably have a defect in the thermostat, selector switch, or common
If the oven doesn't have a separate bake/broil/etc. selector switch,
the problem is often with the thermostat. It's not easy to check the
selector switch or thermostat for proper operation. If you suspect a
problem with either of these, call a qualified appliance repair
technician.The clock stoppedThe
non-electronic clocks on gas range/ovens often don't last long. That's a
problem, because the clock is essential to the self-cleaning and
timed-bake features. Clocks are rarely repairable--you usually just have
to replace them. Electronic
clocks have been more reliable. But, they're often integrated with
several other features of the range/oven. So when the clock develops a
defect, it often renders the entire oven and broiler inoperative. The
electronic clock is usually integrated with a circuit board, and the
touchpad that holds the buttons you press is often a separate component.
If your electronic clock is defective, you may need to replace the
touchpad, circuit board, or both. Although these may be expensive, they
aren't usually very complicated to replace.
Hello there: this error code is refferring to the touch pad
shorted; too hot at the clock assembly (also called the
ERC) or shorted touch pad or clock assembly (also called
Stuck touch pad
Usually means that either the touch pad or the oven control (also called clock or ERC) is defective and needs to be replaced. If this fault code cannot be cancelled, replace the oven control (also called clock or ERC), touch pad, or both.
Here is some wisdom for understanding F1 fault codes.
In some models, there are subcodes that make diagnosis even easier.
Here's a simple explanation of what's going on and how to troubleshoot:
The F1 code indicates that:
a. The electronic range control (ERC) is sensing heat in the oven when in a time-of-day (i.e., not cooking) mode.
b. The ERC is receiving information to run multiple heat functions simultaneously.
Although different components (depending upon the model) could generate the code, simple and straightforward testing using your ohm meter is all you gotta do to test for it.
1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor has to be within spec or it will cause the F1 code. As an example of being out-of-spec, the ERC will generate an F1 fault code when the sensor shows 1650 ohms during a time-of-day mode. This is equivalent to 350°F in the oven. The resistance isn't high enough to generate an F2 code (runaway temp) or an F3 or F4 code (shorted/open sensor circuit). The ERC monitors the sensor circuit after a heat cycle and expects the resistance to drop back to 1050-1100 ohms. The fault code is generated when this doesn't happen. Checking the sensor circuit means also checking the harness, harness connections and the sensor itself.
2. If the oven sensor circuit checks okay, then turn your inquisitive eyeballs to the touchpad. If the range has a separate touchpad/keyboard, the keypad may have moisture that is shorting several circuits simultaneously. If the F1 code is given immediately (instead of during or after a heat cycle), remove the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the ERC after clearing the F1 code. If the F1 code does not return in five minutes, then cast a suspicious gaze upon the touchpad/keyboard. Shorts may be caused by using an ammonia-based glass cleaner. The touchpad surface will absorb ammonia-based cleaners that are sprayed directly on the glass surface. When heat is applied, the surface material can break down causing shorts. If you're gonna use ammonia-based cleaners on your control panel, then you should spray it on the rag and then wipe the touchpanel -don't spray directly onto the surface of the touchpad.
3. On Amana ranges with a rotary temperature dial, be sure that the knob is in the OFF position when performing tests.
4. If these tests all check good, then replace the ERC.

As you are aware the technical manual for your range doesn't show an error code of E2 F2 but all of the F2 codes pertain to the touchpad of the range. Can you clear the E2 F3 by pressing the cancel button? If not, shut off the power to the range for a few minutes and see if the error code goes away. If the error code remains You should unplug the range from the wall and remove the back panel for the control area. Disconnect the ribbon between the touchpad and the electronic control, clean the end of it and reconnect it. If this doesn't repair the problem you will need to replace the touchpad on the range. The parts diagram lists two touchpads, they are part numbers 8273575- bisque, and 8272702- white.
E2 relates to an overheating condition. Quite possibly related to your touchpad issue. I'd try cleaning the contacts and if that doesn't work...Up to you at that point!
