Question about Amana Ovens
My oven heats, but does not cook. Then after the pre-heat alert comes on, it displays a F2 and F3 error. Do you know what the problem is?
SOURCE: F3 and F2 Error Codes
If hitting clear/cancel won't clear it try unplugging and then plug it back in. My guess is the oven control is bad. Here are the fault codes for this model.
Code Condition Check/Repair F0 or F1 Failed transistor in control If code cannot be cancelled, replace the Electronic Range Control (ERC) or touch pad F2 Oven over temp - exceeded 590F with door in unlocked position or 990F with door locked If actual temp condition occurred, look for welded relay contacts or high resistance connection or any cause in the oven temperature sensor circuit F3 Open oven temperature sensor circuit Measure oven temperature sensor circuit at oven temperature sensor (should be approx 1100 ohms at room temp); check for cut or pinched wire or loss of contact F4 Shorted oven temperature sensor circuit Same as above; check for melted connector or both leads shorted to ground F8 Component failure within Electronic Range Control (ERC) effecting temp processing circuits Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC) F9 Problem with door lock circuit such as pinched wire between Electronic Range Control (ERC) and door lock switch Check wiring and test operation of switch

thank you for the info. you need to replace the oven sensor. an F2 error is oven is to hot. an F3 error is a shorted or open oven sensor. the oven sensor is easy to change, and not very expensive. if you have further questions, let me know. shane

Hi, F2 error code on the Amana Oven means "Oven too hot"
You have to replace Oven temperature sensor to fix it.
F3 error code means "Open or shorted oven temperature sensor". Yo also have to replace Oven temperature sensor to fix it.
Summarily, both code has to do with the temperature sensor which you need to replace...
