SOURCE: f-3 error code
F3 indicates a failed oven temperature sensor. Your model number indicates that your range is manufactured by Roper. They recommend measuring the resistance of the oven probe (at room temperature). It should read approx. 1100 ohms. If the reading is bad, replace the oven probe. This is a repair you can perform yourself. The probe is mounted on the back of the oven wall in either the upper left, or upper right-hand corner. The part number is 252618 and costs (like you said) about $73. If you need guidance on how to remove/replace or measure, let me know. I hope I do not insult your intelligence. I generally ask, because some people are not savvy when it comes to electronics. I hope this information is helpful.

may be a real simple , lets try this. unplugh the unit, and uscrew rear panel of the unit, there is a thermostat that may have tripped, very small maybe the size of a quarter, with 2 wires on it, easy to sppot because it will have a small red button atop of it, its resettable, so if it did "trip" melrey reset and your on your way,there are actuallly 2 of theese thermostats on your unit, and actually a more common one to trip would be the one in the control panal, so id prblaby check this one first, to acces it remov eht knobs, then wehere the knobs were are "large plastic lock washers" holding down the control panel, one around earch knob opening, after ermoving htem the control panel will lift up and lean over. i belive there are 4 screws to remove the clock(plenty of slack in wiring no worry)after thats out of the way, if you look down under behind the switch to right is the same resetable thermo(lok for the the red button) and with a small long screw dricer youll be able to reset it, this should cure you issue. sounds like a ton of directions but should take no maore than 20 min, to check em both

Make sure the glow bar ignitor is working in the oven.
They can glow and still be bad because of poor resistance.
