Today is 9/7/13. Our stove has error code F11 and will not correct. Stove is inoperable & earliest available repair appointment from Sears is 9/24/13, 22 days from now.. We have an expensive protection agreement and the stove is just 9 months old. This is insane. There must be a way to fix this sooner than 3 weeks. We cannot wat out 3 times a day for 22 days. Help!

What can we do?

    What is the long model number of the stove?

    The number is listed on the cover of the Owner's manual or on a data plate attached to the right side of the stove front, by the pots and pans bottom drawer space.

    I can think of several alternative cooking units that may make the wait a little more tolerable.

    There is the close-second in the running "microwave oven", that can cook food AND prepackaged microwavable meals.

    We've been using a Slow-cooker to produce some VERY tasty and "healthy" meals.

    A lot can be done with a Rice Cooker, too.

    And, if you have a gas BBQ, you're Golden!

    Having a working stove is very important.

    But, the alternative cooking tools can make very good partial backup solutions for having warm to hot meals.

    Good luck with your service call(s).

    1. Alternatives are great. The best alternative is having prompt and efficient service that respects the customer, not expecting them to wait three weeks for an initial service call (and most likely having additional delays for parts to be ordered and another service call scheduled to do the actual repair)

      If the customer wanted to use alternative cooking methods, they would not have paid hard earned money for the stove.

      And, flat tires are so VERY tiresome to change.

      Things don't always work out the way we all would like.

      Has the tire doctor roving repair and replacement van been by to fix or replace the offending tire?


      Better get the BBB involved to get a resolution.

      Stove failed on 9/6/13, error code 11. Part replaced 9/16/13 & now error code is 14. Oven still does not work. New part will not be available until 10/1/13. This is an expensive stove, with an expensive extended warranty. Bad product & bad service. Say no to Sears.
