Kenmore Oven gives fault code F3 when you turn on oven

I checked online & found F code is temp sensor with open circuit. I replaced the sensor & still get the F3 code. Any suggestions?

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).

Kenmore oven 9114288816


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.

F3 error (sensor replaced) kenmore stove Oven reaches proper temp then about 15 minutes after starting beeper goes off and error code f3 appears


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.
Thanks Rylee

You have a faulty keypad. You could probably special order this part from a local appliance parts supply store for 50-60$ or purchase a new microwave.

GE Oven displaying both F2 and F3 error codes; bad ERC or temp sensor?


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.

Fault code F3, then F2


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

Oven beeping f1 and f3


Here are the error codes for your range:

F1 Circuit board defective Replace control board 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
2. Check 8-pin connector. Check and replace oven temperature sensor if necessary F3 Oven temperature sensor is open (above 3000 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for open wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F4 Oven temperature sensor is shorted (below 500 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for shorted wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F5 Internal watchdog circuit has detected a failure Defective EOC (Electronic Oven Control) F6 Shorted buttons Check push buttons and dome switches on control F8 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.
