Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
hello bryan this is Charlie, I have an error of f5 on my Kenmore elite and the unit is not working
Optional Information: Brand: Kenmore EliteType of Appliance: Oven & RangeModel Number: *********** br />What have you tried so far?: checked all the door switches for continuity and the only problem I seen is the primary is always in closed position but I don't think that this is the only problem why my unit is nor working, cause when I put in the time and hit the start button I can hear the ticking of the relays and the time will start the count down but no activities, then it will shown the error-F5. I never had the chance to check the damper motor yet, but what do you think is the common problem of this unit?

Good morning Kelly,
I just read your reply, and just what I stated on my trouble shooting the only switch that is faulty is the primary- the terminals is stays close, means when you open the oven door the contact will not break-open (the line still connected). Again, I dought that this is the real problem, and I want to know from you guys as an expert (where can I find the F5-sensor) that might creating this problem or the damper motor?
Hello Kelly, I will replaced all the switches as you adviced. I just don't want to waste my money changing parts that I can't return if its not the problem, not to mention I'm also a tech. but in HVACR field and when it comes to schematic diagram and trouble shooting I think I'm pretty good my self as well, I just don't like messing around with microhood oven, specially if I can't find the parts in the drawing like this (F5-sesor).
