Top oven takes forever to heat. Sometimes shuts off and shows F4 code.

Old temp probe shows 1.07 K Ohms

Of course it seems to behave once I've got it out of the wall.

OK. So even they said the problem is intermittent. I'm guessing F4 does mean a shorted sensor, but it seems to test OK. The codes I'm looking at may not be for this model. I'm tracing the wires and they LOOK okay.

... I'm guessing F4 does mean a shorted sensor,

that's all I could find...
Did you try a new Sensor ?
(price is right)
(may be intermittent)
OR may be a bad Controller ...

Reg_US,
So glad to hear from you as always. I brought another sensor with me, but since I have to cut the wires since they changed the design, I was hesitant to install it. I switched the two existing sensors, but since it is an intermittent problem, and they are both behaving fine now, who can tell. I guess I'll bite the bullet and install the new one, but I don't want to be called back to re-diagnose. I guess I have plenty of time before Thanksgiving for the problem to show up again if I am wrong.

Tim

When the issue is intermittent like that it often means a connector is corroded in the harness, or the wiring somehow burnt/loose/damaged (sensor harness). Can be effected by heat and use of oven
