F3 Error Code

This is a 15 year old Kenmore wall over that I can't even find on the parts list anymore.

 

Age old question is should we fix it or just go down and buy a new one?

 

I am a moderately capable do-it-yourselfer.  Is this something that I might be able to fix myself?

 

From what I gather this most likely is a thermostat or sensor problem.

 

Any help or advice is appreciated.

    Turn it on to bake and it runs for awhile then the F3 error code beeps. Sometimes works sometimes doesn't? So frustrating, someone please help.

I know what you mean. I was cooking with this appliance tonight and suddenly it displayed an f-3 code. My advantium oven is less than 8 months old. Not sure how this happened or how to fix the problem. In order to sleep tonight (the constant beeping) I had to shut power off at the breaker pannel. Is this representative of the the type of quality that GE stands for???? I am sooo frustrated. I cook with my advantium oven all the time and love the dual abilities of this appliance. Like I said this is brand new and to have the f-3 code which apparently (from what I read) is a failed key pad. I am very dissapointed and am begining to think about pulling my stock from this company!

F3 error code on Kenmore 911-45569690


Yep F3 I dont even have to look that up fault with oven tempreture sensor. If you perform an ohms test on it at room tempreture should read between 1000-1100 ohms if less then replace. Thanks again

I'm getting an F3 error on my 9 year old Kenmore range. Worth fixing, or replacing the range?


F3 is usually the oven sensor. Worth the repair. Some times also the connection where the sensor plugs to the board has a faulty solder connection which is also repairable.

F2 and F3 code appearing along with annoying beeping


i think f3 error code has something to do with the temp probe maybe it is the problem. the temp probe is located if you open the door directly in the back wall. it looks like a prong. should read 1100ohms the f2 error code though usually has something to do with the keypad i would check all the connections maybe they are loose.
