I have a kenmore 911-4658811/ F3/ I replaced part still broke
I did research this afternoon and purchased a 80.00 part sears (Sensor ASM). I had to splice the spart because the plug was different at the end. However, the attendant cautioned me I may have to cut the plug and splice the wires. I had a lengthly conversation with his genetlemen and I'm concerned because the bag says F16-939. I should have checked it and I am fustrated because I don't know if he'll take back the part.

Looks like yours is a bad oven control. There is a # at the end of yourmodel # 0-5 that will determine which control it takes. Once you havethat # you can look it up at http://www3.sears.com/ Looks like the part costs about $165.
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
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
The F3 error code on 99.9% of all ovens means you have a shorted or open temperature sensor. You will also want to check for any pinched or frayed wires going to the sensor form your clock/erc/timer assembly.
To determine the actual sensor you need you'd have to provide a model number since kenmore is only a brand name for sears, the range itself could be made by any number of manufacturer's.
Let me know if I can assist you further, if not please take a moment and rate the answer I provided for you today and thank you for visiting "fixya" for your error inquiry.
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
