The F3 E2 error code indicates that the electronic oven control board in the range senses an over-temperature condition in the oven.

This can be caused by a failed temperature sensor probe, a wiring problem between the sensor and the control board, or a failed electronic oven control board.
If the oven is apparently not overheating when this error code appears, then your likely failure is the temperature sensor probe.
If the oven is overheating, then you likely have a failed electronic oven control board due to a stuck relay not cycling the oven heating element off properly.


For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Also
Sometimes shutting off the circuit breaker that the range or oven is connected to for 30 seconds will clear the fault, error or function code.

Also
F3 or F30 means that there may be a problem with the oven sensor.
Your oven sensor may need to be replaced.

91136669891 HAS ERROR CODE F2 F3


Are you sure about this error? The 91136669891 was made by Whirlpool for the Kenmore line. The 4 character codes for these ranges are F# E# (not two Fs).

Depending on which error you are actually have see below.

If the code includes F3 then you have a problem with the oven temperature sensor (F3 E2 would be temperature too high). You need to replace the sensor. Sears Parts Direct has the sensor for $74.12: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Kenmore-Parts/Range-Parts/WB21X5301/0022/364/Model-91136669891/0582/0124250?keySuffixId=NA&pathTaken=partSearch&pathRender=modelComponent&documentCompId=P9040087&diagramPageId=00005&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=91136669891&subCompDesc=Body&brandDesc=KENMORE&modelDesc=30 . The complete diagram of the oven parts is available here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Range-Parts/Model-91136669891/0582/0124250/P9040087/00005?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= . The sensor is part 253.

If the code includes F2, then double check the second code. Whirlpool has no F2 E3 error that I know of. However, F2 errors tend to be a problem with the keypad. Check the wiring connection between the keypad and the control. This should be firm. Then press Cancel. If the error persists, you need to replace the keypad. See http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Range-Parts/Model-91136669891/0582/0124250/P9040087/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= for the parts diagram and prices.

I hope this helps.

Kenmore built-in oven model 911.30168792 displays F3 code and shuts down... what part might need replacement... or is it more economical to just plain get a new oven?


Hello,
The F3 error code means that the oven tempature sensor has shorted out,its fairly easy to replace the sensor and it cost around $80 or so. It is located in the oven chamber typically on the upper left side.
If you want to replace it the part number is WB21X5301 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;
searspartsdirect.com
apdepot.com
partselect.com
apwanger.com
repairclinic.com
here is what the sensor looks like

Nothing Works Shows F3 Error


the F3 error code is an oven temperature sensor fault. The sensor is a small probe that sticks out of the back of the oven wall. They do go bad and can be easily replaced. If I had your EXACT model number (found along the inside of the oven door or lower drawer) you can replace it.hope this helps
