Re: Kenmore Oven gives fault code F3 when you turn on...
Check the sensor harness, and the sensor harness connections at the sensor and oven control for an open circuit. Check for resistance on the sensor. It should not read as an open circuit. If the sensor shows resistance and the wiring and connections show continuity, then the problem is most likely on the control board itself. Possibly a bad connector or crack. You will probably have to replace the controller board (clock).
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Fault codes for Amana ovens, range, stoves including dual convection wall overs and 'big ovens'. ... F3-1 - Oven Temperature Sensor/Circuit Failure - Check wire connections and ... what does it mean when the oven turns off and f3 shows ... My Amanaagds902ww gas range flashes "Door" when attempting to light the oven.
The "F3" fault indicates an open oven sensor probe or an open sensor circuit. The oven temperature sensor is no longer available. The oven temperature sensor circuit also has thermal fuse connected in a series circuit in one of the two wires in the sensor circuit. Based on the fault code, the sensor is faulty or the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse comes with the oven temperature sensor. Here is the part to order.
Hi Thanks for using FixYa. Error F3 in your range/oven means oven temperature sensor circuit failure. To resolve this issue you'll have to check the oven temp. sensor circuit if the reading is more then 1100ohms then check the wire harness connecting the control & sensor (as you have already replaced the sensor) however, if the rating is fine then it is the Electronic Range Control (ERC) that has gone bad & should be replaced. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance. ThanksRylee

F3 is Open oven temperature sensor
circuit. F4 Shorted oven temperature sensor
circuit . F7 Component failure.
To fix this you need to read oven temperature sensor
circuit at oven temperature sensor ( approx 1000
ohms at room temp); check for cut or pinched wire or loss
of contact, if wirings are ok, then replace the probe.
Well here's the details about those codes: F2 :- 1. The oven temp has risen above 665F and the door is not locked or 2. The temp has risen above 965F with the door locked
1. Check oven temp in mode that failure occurred. Replace EOC (Electronic Oven Control) if above limits F3:- Oven temperature sensor is open (above 3000 ohms)
Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for open wiring between oven temperature sensor
Circuit board defective
Replace control board
1. The oven temp has risen above 665F and the door is not locked or 2. The temp has risen above 965F with the door locked
1. Check oven temp in mode that failure occurred. Replace EOC (Electronic Oven Control) if above limits 2. Check 8-pin connector. Check and replace oven temperature sensor if necessary
Oven temperature sensor is open (above 3000 ohms)
Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for open wiring between oven temperature sensor and control
Oven temperature sensor is shorted (below 500 ohms)
Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for shorted wiring between oven temperature sensor and control
Internal watchdog circuit has detected a failure
Defective EOC (Electronic Oven Control)
Check push buttons and dome switches on control
Logic interrupted (lock motor switch sequence)
Check door lock switches and wiring
Most likely problem is the oven temp. sensor. Should check around 1100 ohms at room temp. I would replace that first because it is the easiest and cheaper than an oven control.
