Before you call for service, review this list. It may save you time and expense. The list
includes common occurrences that are not the result of defective workmanship or
materials in this appliance.
This oven is equipped with a state of the art electronic oven controller. Among its
many features is a full time oven circuit diagnostics system. The controller constantly
monitors its internal circuitry as well as several crucial oven circuits to insure they are
all operating correctly. If at any time one of these systems fails, the controller will
immediately stop operation, and beep continuously (flashing an error code of F1 or
F3* in the display window, if equipped).
Poor installation. Place oven rack in center of oven. Place a level on the oven rack.
Adjust leveling legs at base of range until the oven rack is level.
Be sure floor is level and is strong and stable enough to adequately support range.
If floor is sagging or sloping, contact a carpenter to correct the situation.
Kitchen cabinet alignment may make range appear unlevel. Be sure cabinets are
square and have sufficient room for range clearance.
Cabinets not square or are built in too tightly. Contact builder or installer to make
appliance accessible.
Carpet interferes with range. Provide sufficient space so range can be lifted over

to OFF, and disconnect the power to the range. Wait 30 seconds and reconnect the
power. If fault recurs, disconnect the power and contact an authorized servicer.
