Question about Kitchen Ranges
The oven will shut off when in use. It never reaches desired temperature. Occasionally Error code F2 (only two digits) comes up with constant beeping. Sometimes, rarely the code will be F3. Error code lists say F2 means oven temperature is too high. Not the problem, as it doesn't reach proper temperature. Both codes say Oven Sensor needs replaced. I have replaced it, twice. The problems persists. All sensors, including original one, read correct OHMS. What do I look at nexr?
The "F2" error code for this oven means "one or more keys on the keypad are shorted". The correction is to replace the control panel because keypad does not come separate.
The part is not available but if you call the number of that supplier I'm sure they may find the part for you.
Here is the info.

Two months ago I asked fixya about a g.e. oven with a f3 code. that evening a reply suggested I replace the oven sensor. I took the old one to the parts place, told the repairman about the code,and he told me the sensor WAS the problem. I replaced it, and WOW it fixed it! Today it faulted out again. I will pull it again and check it. It was installed correctly.The problem for a f3 fault IS the sensor.

HI, You will need to check the oven sensor wires that link the actual sensor to the main control board. Make sure that the contacts are connected properly, and not loose, or corroded. If all the wiring checks out, test the sensor for the correct resistance readings.(you will need a multimeter for this test)
The most common oven sensor should be approximately, 1100 ohms when at room temperature. The others may be close to as follows:
100°F - 1143 ohms
200°F - 1350 ohms
300°F - 1553 ohms
350°F - 1654 ohms
400°F - 1753 ohms
500°F - 1949 ohms
If the sensor test is adequate, and the wiring is Ok at the control, this will lead to a failed control board. replace the control in this case.

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.
