F3 error code

Bad oven temp sensor. If you know how to do so you can disconnect the power and remove the temp sensor. The two white wires to the sensor, ohm it. it must read ~1080 ohms. If not really close to that at room temp then replace sensor.

Stove reads F3 and won't cancel and oven won't shut off?

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F3 error code indicates a open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you wan to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Showing f3 high on display

F3 stands for a faulty oven sensor. Unplug the oven, then replace the sensor. Should be back to normal. The sensor is inside the oven. When you pull on the sensor, you'll get to a male/female quick connector. When you unplug it, be careful not to lose the other end behind the oven wall or this simple repair won't be so simple anymore. Check here the replacement sensor for your oven.

Hope this helps.

Oven turns off F3 flashes

Bob, an F3 error code denotes a failed oven temp sensor. See below.

F3 Open oven temperature sensor circuit Replace oven temperature sensor
The repair is pretty straight forward, but you should have the replacement part in hand before you begin. The part number is WB21X5301 and retails for about $95.00. I just found one online for $72.60!

The sensor is located inside the oven cavity mounted to the top of the rear wall. Remove the 2 screws and slide it out of there. The sensor has a plastic connector connecting it to the main harness behind the oven. Pull this carefully through the hole. If you can't get the plastic connector through, then you'll have to pull the oven and do this from the back... alot more work but still do-able. Simply disconnect the old sensor from the plastic connector and install the new one. Then feed the wires back into the oven and re-mount the new sensor.

If you don't have to pull the oven, the job should take about 20 minutes and all you need is a 1/4" nut-driver or socket.

If you have to pull the oven, re-post and let me know... I'll walk you through it.

There ya go!
