Copper, F3 means oven temp sensor is open. You need to replace the probe. Easy job. Part number I have for this is WB23X5340, but double check your model number. Look it up on the net to see what you are going back

F2 & F3 are fault codes relating to the oven temperature sensor

F2 during bake means a temperature of over 630 deg has been reached
F3 means shorted oven temperature sensor

What it means is you will most likely need to have the oven temperature sensor (thermostat) replaced .

What is an F3 message on a GE Profile JKP18 oven ?

Hi jmjburns,

The F3 fault code description is an open or shorted oven temperature sensor. Please check the sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. If the wiring is ok and still encountering the same error, please replace the temperature sensor.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

GE Profile double Built-In Oven error Code

According to the GE User manual... any F# error code means you have a function error and they suggest you press the CLEAR/OFF pad and allow the oven to cool for one hour. Then put the oven back into operation. If the function code repeats, disconnect all power from th eoven for at least 30 seconds and then reconnect it.. If it still comes back.. call for service.. however it has been my observation that F0 is usually a shorted off key on the keypad. Hope this helps..

F3 code

It's your oven temperature sensor. It's a thin metal stick that juts into the oven. It is located on the upper right back wall of the oven cavity. Flip your breaker, slide out the oven. You install it from the back, very simple, two screws, i think. I'm a beginner at DIY and had no problem fixing it.
