SOURCE: Kitchen Aid ovens - error codes
The F-3 error code typically means you have sensor problem. The sensor is usually mounted in the oven space up near the top of the unit. The first thing to do is turn off the circuit breaker to the oven. Do you have an ohm meter? I suggest if you don't to purchase one. They are relatively inexpensive. Maybe you can borrow one from a friend. Disconnect the sensor from the electronic control and measure the resistance. There should be a wiring diagram in the top of the unit that will help you to locate the sensor wires. Most sensors should read around 1100 ohms at room temperature. If sensor reads as an open circuit or has a very high resistance, it must be replaced. If instead it reads very low, then there is a short in the wiring. Some units have a fuse in series with the sensor. Check to see that the fuse has not blown.

The micorwave oven light does not work and when I push start, the word DOOR shows on the screen and beeps 3 times. The oven will not start.

Turn the power to the oven off. It usually is not possible to unplug the power chord for the built-in appliances so go to the main switch board and just turn off the oven power for about 5 minutes and then turn on the switch. The error code should disappear. Mine did!

PROCEDURE: Before proceeding, press OFF, OFF, START to enter Diagnostic
mode and verify the error codes. Ensure AM software, UI software and EEPROM
CHECKSUM versions appear on the lower text line. If AM software and EEPROM
versions do not appear, UI and AM may not be communicating. Verify this for the
lower oven UI and for the microwave (upper oven) UI. The lower oven UI will show
the AM software version for the lower oven appliance manager, and the microwave
UI will show the AM software and EEPROM versions for the microwave appliance
If the lower oven UI is not displaying the AM software version, go to UI IS NOT
DISPLAYING AM SOFTWARE VERSION.
If the upper oven UI is not displaying the AM software and EEPROM versions,
go to UPPER OVEN UI IS NOT DISPLAYING THE AM SOFTWARE AND
If lower oven UI and microwave UI are both displaying an error, go to LOWER
OVEN UI AND MICROWAVE UI ARE BOTH DISPLAYING AN ERROR.
UI IS NOT DISPLAYING AM SOFTWARE VERSION:
A. Unplug oven or disconnect power.
B. Open the back panels and make sure the P6 and P2 connectors are fully
inserted on the appliance manager and on the lower oven user interface board.
- If they are not plugged in, plug in connectors and go to step F.
- If they are plugged in, go to step C.
C. Visually inspect all wires between P6 on the appliance manager and P2 on the
lower user interface.
- Make sure wires are not cut or pinched.
- If the wires appear to be intact, perform a continuity check between
P6-1 of the appliance manager and P2-1 of the user interface board.
Complete for P6-2(AM) to P2-2(UI), P6-4(AM) to P2-4(UI) and P6-5(AM) to
P2-5(UI). All the measurements made should be less than 5 ?. If any of
these measurements exceeds 5 ?, go to step E.
D. Replace the appliance manager. Ensure all connectors are properly inserted.
E. Replace the wiring harness (signal). Ensure all connectors are properly inserted.
F. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
G. Plug in oven or reconnect power.
H. Observe for longer than 1 minute to determine if error has been repaired.
I. If error does not appear, initiate a bake cycle. Let the cycle run for at least
- If no error occurs, cancel the cycle, the problem has been repaired.
- If error occurs again, restart the troubleshooting procedure at step A.
At step D, replace the lower oven user interface board if appliance
manager has already been replaced.
- If both are replaced the problem has been repaired.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

F3: Magnetron Current Low
Fault is displayed when the current transformer
(CT) on the I/O control board does not detect
enough current. The fault is monitored when the
microwave is on during a cook cycle or self-test.
The fault is cleared from the display at the onset of
a cook cycle if the CT detects current or when the
magnetron is successfully energized in Test Mode
