How to replace temp sensor?

Our oven gives an F3 code, which google tells me is a bad RTD. I took out the two mounting screws, but the wire does not pull forward far enough for me to unplug it. Do I have to pull out the range and remove the back to get to the connector (that will be a serious pain), or is there a trick to fishing the wire further into the oven?
Thanks --
-- Jim

Had to pull out the range. Replacing the sensor fixed it, so dinner was hot, and life is good. -- Jim

Frigidaire FEF352BADB electric range gives an F3 error code when oven is turned on. The oven temperature sensor apparently is good as it reads about 1050 ohms. What else can I check and how?


F3 - Open oven temperature sensor (RTD)

Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.

It suppose to be about 1100 Ohms at the room temperature. If the reading there is wrong, check the sensor resistance at the sensor plug and the wire harness. If there is nothing wrong then replace the control board.

Hope helps.

F3 code kenmore model# 911-4552090


Hi pickerrauto7,
The f-3 code code indicates a bad or open temperature sensor in the oven. It is the little metal rod in the top of the oven about the size of a pencil.
Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.
You will have to remove the back panel of the range to correct the problem. The temp probe is held into place with two 1/4 inch screws. If the connections are good then the probe is bad. Good luck to you on your repair. I am sure this will FixYa. Please dont forget to rate me.
