Default KitchenAid Electric Range F2 error
Model Number: YKERC507EW2   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hi,

I have a KitchenAid Electric Range Model #YKERC507EW2. Recently I had been roasting (convection) in the oven and after a while the range started beeping and the F2 error code appeared. The range then kept keeping and displaying the error for a while so I shut it off, let it cool for a while. While cooling, the temperature would suddenly appear on the display with the "start" flashing .. so I finally just unplugged it and left it for the night. Next day when I plugged it back in, tried to set the clock but when I select the time/clock button the "500 degree" temperature appears. This happens with the bake options and the convection roast ..
nothing appears when I select the convection broil and bake buttons -
My research indicates possibly an "oven sensor" problem, or ERC..

How difficult is it to replace the "sensor" ? and
How would I know if it is the "sensor" vs "ERC"?
Any adivce would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Most likely the problem is a bad ERC. The model number you posted does not come up. Verify and repost it.

Default KitchenAid Model # YKERC507EW2 / YKERC507HW4

Hi,

Thanks for your response. I know that the model # I provided originally is correct as YKERC507EW2 -- but in previous searches it can be matched/cross-refereced to YKERC507HW4 .. Hope that helps

Sincerely,

Cathy.

Cathy,

After reviewing the Tech sheets for a few similar models it looks to me like there is about 50/50 chance for the ERC or the key panel to be bad.

I could not find any diagrams and/or tech sheet for the model number you posted. I'm not able to provide any more accurate advice and part numbers without such technical data.

Gene.

Default KitchenAid Electric Range Model KERC507EWH2

Hi Again,

I have confirmed that my Kitchen Aid Electric Range can be cross referenced to KERC507EWH2 ..
Just to recap, I had received an F2 error on my display. From my research I have concluded that this could mean that I could have a faulty oven temperature sensor and/or the oven control panel.

Based on the Model # KERC507EWH2 .. I have located a part number for the oven temperature sensor -- AP3130719 .. could you please advise how difficult replacing this part would be.. i.e would you recommend a qualified repair peson or is it pretty straight forward .. my husband is pretty good at fixing things and has fixed our washer many times.. but has not had much experience in fixing stove/electric ranges.

The goal is to replace the sensor first .. if the problem goes away .. then we're good to go.. otherwise we need to look at replacing the oven control panel (which unfortunately is quite costly) so we are trying to keep costs at minimum at first.. I am not even sure if we need to go to step 2 if it is even economincally feasible.????!!!!

Any help/advice would be appreciated once again. Thanks.

Cathy.

Hi Cathy,

According to the Tech sheet (page 2) for the model number you posted, "F2" error code means "Keyboard shorted/Cancel not operating" and suggested correction is to replace control module. It is not connected in any ways to the oven temperature sensor.

The price for the black or almond oven control assembly is twice less than the price for the white one. If the color is not very important issue then you can save about $250. Click on the link or the picturte bellow to see the price and availability.

- The white oven control assembly Part number: AP2995057

Part number: AP2995057



- The almond oven control assembly Part number: AP2995058

Part number: AP2995058



- The black oven control assembly Part number: AP2995059

Part number: AP2995059

Default KitchenAid Range - F2 error

Hi,

Thanks once again for your quick and very informative reply .. It is very much appreciated..

Unfortunately, my range is white.. and twice the price based on color seems a little excessive.. but I guess we can't control that..

From the tech sheet I see that it says i"if F2 persists, replace the electronic control module". In my situation, the oven beeped and then F2 error displayed for a while until the oven cooled down. After that, F2 did not appear anymore. The problem was next day when I plugged it back in at first it would not allow me to set the "clock/tiime". When I selected that button on the display, it kept displaying a temperature "500 degrees". I left the oven again for another day, then unplugged and replugged it in. Then I was able to set the time, and turn on the oven .. and it seemed to be working ok. So, I tried to bake something in it.. but did not seem to heat up to proper temperature, i.e. food did not cook completely.. So based on this information, do you still feel that it would be the control module, or is there a possibility that it could just be the sensor? And if it could be the sensor, is it a very technical repair???

Sorry to be such a pest, but I am trying to weigh out wether or not to test replacing the sensor (approx $150 for part and repairs) , and if that doesn't pan out, would it be feasible to spend another ($500 + repairs) for a control panel. that would total approx $750 if not more.. I could probably buy new range???? although it would not be same quality as current one.

Once again, thanks for your input.

Sincerely,

Cathy.

Cathy,

I still think the problem is a bad control board because it controls all functions of the oven and the time of the day.

You can check the oven sensor by measuring its resistance. Locate the two sensor wires (2 orange wires at P4 connector) at the control board, unplug it from the control board and measure the resistance between these two wires. It suppose to be about 1100 Ohms at the room temperature.
