Have recently moved into...

Have recently moved into a house with a Kitchenaid Superba Selectra double oven. The convection oven on the botton, gives an F-4 error message soon after starting.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your KitchenAid is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

All I can find is Superba Selectra 27. This is likely 20 plus years old.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Depends on what needs to be done

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't think the convection oven has ever been used.

Will do

F4 is a door latch error. The fact that is only comes on after you start the oven means you either have a bad control board, or a door latch switch is being triggered by the heat when your oven begins to heat. The fact that it only happens after it starts to heat up means it's not really something you can test to know for sure, but I would probably replace the latch switches first since the board will certainly not be made anymore at 20 years old and the switches will be much cheaper than getting the board refurbished.
