People find it difficult to diagnose the error codes on their ovens. So, in this article, we will look at Gorenje oven error codes, what they mean, and how to fix them.
Gorenje Oven Error Code F-01 — How To Fix
If you see the Gorenje oven error code F-01, the temperature sensor or thermostat is faulty. In some Gorenje ovens, a thermostat is used to monitor the temperature while a sensor is used in others. Below, we have listed the steps you need to follow in order to replace the temperature sensor in your Gorenje oven…
Step 1: Unplug the power cord of your Gorenje oven or switch the circuit breaker off to avoid the risk of electrocution.
Step 2: Next, open the oven door.
Step 3: Use a Philips head screwdriver to take out the screws which hold the oven to the cabinet. There are two screws on each side of the oven’s frame.
Step 4: Flip the latches on the door hinges forward. Uninstalling the door will make the oven easier to lift out.
Step 5: Close the door till it stops.
Step 6: Grip the sides of the oven door and lift it off.
Step 7: Set the door assembly on a sturdy cloth lined surface.
Step 8: Lift the oven out of the cabinet and place on a sturdy surface.
Step 9: Turn the oven around to access the rear.
Step 10: Use the same Philips head screwdriver to take out the screws which hold the rear panel to the oven.
Step 11: Lift the rear panel off and set it aside.
Step 12: The temperature sensor should be in between the grill element. If the sensor isn’t between the grill element, it will be on the right or left side of the oven’s rear. Disconnect the wire plug from the temperature sensor.
Step 13: Get a multimeter and turn the dial to the lowest setting for ohms.
Step 14: Touch the two multimeter probes to the pins in the temperature sensor’s wire connector. If you see a reading of around 1100 ohms, the sensor is still good. If the reading is way off from this, the sensor is faulty.
Step 15: Take out the screws which hold the temperature sensor to the oven.
Step 16: Pull out the sensor and get a replacement.
Step 17: Slide the new sensor into the oven and hold it in place with the screws.
Step 18: Connect the wire plug to the new sensor.
Step 19: Reposition the oven’s rear access panel and hold it in place with the screws.
Step 20: Lift the oven back into the cabinet.
Step 21: Secure the oven to the cabinet using the Philips head screws.
Step 22: Lift the oven door.
Step 23: Position the door hinges in the slots on the sides of the oven’s frame.
Step 24: Open the oven door fully and flip the hinge latches back to hold it in place.
Step 25: Shut the door of the oven.
Step 26: Plug the oven’s power cord back in or switch the circuit breaker back on.
