Did the self cleaning. Now it has a F 3 code & door will not unlock.


  • Check warranty to make sure it has expired.
  • Disconnect power for 30 seconds and see if oven will reset the electrical lock.
The following link describe for Kenmore several procedures to disengage the electrical lock securing the door.

It is unfortunate that during the self cleaning cycle the stress levels at the elevated temperature premature failure appears to occur.
How to Clear the Oven Lock Mechanism on Kenmore Stove

The F3 error is most likely the temperature sensor that protrudes into the oven near the top usually on the left. Don't be confused there can be two probes that enter the oven. One is the over temp like not to exceed type of switching device and the other is the actual sensor that maintains the temperature at the set point.

There is a procedure to replace this sensor from inside the oven. I have had only limited success doing this repair in ovens from the front. Newer ovens are equipped with a plug that is easier. In all cases ensure that the plug is pushed through away from the oven wall. In older ovens I have had to pull the built in ovens to accomplish the work from the back to ensure a good connection using wire nuts... The sensor in the second photo does not have a plug so small wire nuts that will fit through the back of the oven are used.

Why kenmore oven code f-10 comes on when bake or broil is on


I would first pull your range out from the wall, unplug your range, then take off the back access panel and ohm your oven sensor.

It should ohm out at 1100 ohms at room temperature.

If that checks good, then your control board is the problem.

Here's the oven sensor probe for your model:

Kenmore oven shuts off before preheated


On any gas appliance there is a high and a low limit temp stat which could be indipendant or on the gas valve it's self, that is faulty.
When the oven reaches temp, it cuts out. sounds like faulty over heat stat.

I have a kenmore oven. Just got an F2 error and the oven element will not turn off. Even when powered down, it heats back up when oven is in off position.


Range "Older Style"
F2 Oven too hot Replace relay board (if present) or oven temperature sensor

Range "Newer Style"

F2 Oven temp sensed; over 600F sensed by control in time of day mode, bake mode, or over 900F sensed in clean mode. Ohm test the oven temperature sensor, if OK, change power relay board.

When set to bake eg: 350 degrees the audio alarm will indicate it's reached temp but the oven is 50- 75 degrees lower. Must wait another 15 min for it to reach the proper temp. Have tried to adjust the off...


If you are monitoring the oven temperature with an analog style thermometer you may actually be ok, but seeing the thermometers slow reaction time.
Some newer ovens actually do pre-heat beep prior to reaching temp in an effort to conserve eelectricity.
A good home test is to try your oven at several different temps to see if there is any variation in internal temperature. Try it one day on 300, the next at 375 and another day at 450. Give your analog style thermometer time to catch up (usually just about 15 min) and leave it on for a half an hour to see if the temp maintains.
Also Beware of aluminum foil AND THE NEW OVEN LINER MATS as they can alter oven performance bay absorbing and blocking the ovens natural heat radiation and convection air flow currents that happen in all ovens, not just convection models.
Another interesting fact is that older ovens used a thermostat in them that operated much like your thermometer and was very slow to react making the oven typically about 100 degrees hotter than where the customer set it. This was just a fact of life before the advent of electronic temperature management and became noticeable when people began trying to bake older "hand me down" recipes in the newer ovens with less than stellar results.
You can mimic the older oven performance by preheating the oven about a hundred degrees higher than called for and after it reaches temp, re-set it to the correct temperature and put the items in right away.
If you find your temperatures fluctuating ask your servicer to replace first the temp sensor and as a last resort the control board as this part is usually pretty expensive.
Good Luck with this!
