KitchenAid ovens are popular for their classic design and simple user interface. When a problem occurs in the function of a KitchenAid oven, an error code will display on the clock as soon as the malfunction registers in the oven's memory. Each code corresponds to a particular type of malfunction. Most can be corrected by disconnecting the power supply for one minute and then restarting. If the code persists, either replace the indicated part or contact a service centre.
The F0 and F1 codes refer to electrical issues. If the code appears as only two digits, the problem is a transistor failure, so you must replace the electronic range control (ERC). If the code displays four digits, it will read F0-E0, which indicates a failure switching from analogue to digital, or F1-E1, which refers to a safety flip-flop. Both problems require the replacement of the ERC.
The F2, F3 and F4 codes refer to problems with the oven temperature sensor or the keypad. If you see the two-digit F2 code, it means your keypad has shorted and the ERC must be replaced. The four-digit F2-E0 code means that the oven temperature is too high. Test the door lock and the relay operation, and correct as necessary. A two-digit F3 code means an open temperature sensor or thermal fuse, so those parts must be replaced. A four-digit F3-E0, F3-E1, F3-E2 or F3-E3 code or a two-digit F4 code means that either the oven is registering as too hot or the temperature sensor has shorted. Either way, the oven temperature sensor must be replaced.
F5 codes refer to door latch issues. The two-digit F5 code and all variations of any four-digit code beginning with F5 mean that the door latch must be replaced.
Error codes F6 through F9 indicate circuit problems. An F6 code indicates a timekeeping circuit error, so try resetting the time or cook function and ensure the wiring is properly grounded. An F7 code refers to a function button that has become stuck, and the F8 code means the entire ERC has failed. Either way, the ERC must be replaced. An F9 code means that the door lock circuit is faulty, so check the wiring for loose connections and correct as necessary.
The F03, F12, F13 and F22 codes refer to problems within the ERC. The F03 code means that at least one key is permanently pressed. Clean the cooktop and remove all foreign objects. If the code persists, replace the touch control module. The F12 code indicates a problem with the touch pad, the F13 code refers to issues within the central processing unit, and the F22 code means a key sensitivity issue. Try disconnecting power for one minute. If the code persists, replace the touch control module.
The F36 code indicates a hardware error with the temperature probe. Try disconnecting the power for one minute. If the code persists or reoccurs, replace the touch control module.
