Code Meaning Possible Cause Possible Parts
F10 Runaway temperature (oven temperature is over 600 degrees F and increasing) Disconnect power from the range. Check the resistance of the oven temperature sensor using a multimeter. You should measure about 1,100 ohms resistance through the sensor at room temperature. If not, replace the sensor. If the oven overheats and the oven temperature sensor is okay, replace the oven control board because a stuck relay on the control board is causing the oven to overheat Oven temperature sensor, oven control board
F11 Stuck key on the touch control panel The control detects a key has been pressed for 30 seconds or more. Make sure nothing is pushing against the keypad. Press the Stop key to clear the display. If the code won't clear, disconnect electrical power to the range and check the wire harness connections between the touch control panel and the oven electronic control board. Reconnect any loose wires. If the wiring is okay, replace the touch control panel. If the problem continues, replace the oven control board Touch control panel, oven control board
F12 or F13 Oven control board failure Disconnect electrical power, wait 30 seconds and restore power. If the error code returns, replace the oven control board Oven control board
F14 Communication error between the oven control board and touch control panel Disconnect electrical power and check the wiring connections between the touch control panel and oven control board. Reconnect any loose wires. If wiring connections are okay, replace the oven control board Oven control board
F15, F16, F17 or F18 Oven control board failure Disconnect electrical power, wait 30 seconds and restore power. If error code returns, replace the oven control board Oven control board
F30 or F31 Oven temperature sensor failure Disconnect power from the range. Check the resistance of the oven temperature sensor probe using a multimeter. You should measure about 1,100 ohms of resistance through the sensor probe at room temperature. If not, replace the sensor probe Oven temperature sensor
F60 Oven control board too hot Check to see if the cooling fan is running. If not, disconnect electrical power and check wiring between the fan and the oven control board. Reconnect any loose wires and replace any damaged wires. If the wiring is okay, replace the cooling fan Cooling fan
F90, F91, F92, F93, F94 or F95 Oven door lock failure If the oven door won't lock or unlock, disconnect power, wait 30 seconds and restore power. Try again to lock it by activating the oven lockout feature or starting a clean cycle. If the door wouldn't unlock, try to unlock it by pressing the cancel button. If the door lock motor doesn't run, disconnect power to the range and check the wire harness connections between the door lock assembly and the oven control board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If the wiring is okay, replace the door lock assembly. If the problem continues, replace the relay control board Oven door lock assembly, wire harness, oven control board
