Nancy, have you recently had a power outage or un-plugged the stove? I just worked on a Frigidaire oven that had been un-plugged and I had to re-set the clock before I could test the oven controls. I do not remember the code and since you did not mention what brand you have this idea might not work for you but you could try. If that does not fix your problem, please re-post and give us the brand of your oven so that we can look up the code for you. Good luck!

SOURCE: f3 code

It's your oven temperature sensor. It's a thin metal stick that juts into the oven. It is located on the upper right back wall of the oven cavity. Flip your breaker, slide out the oven. You install it from the back, very simple, two screws, i think. I'm a beginner at DIY and had no problem fixing it.

SOURCE: Double oven / convection not working

It is likely that the convection element is burned out and needs to be replaced. If all other functions are working then this is the place to start. Teh back panel inside of the oven can be removed by removing the 4 visible philips screws on it. The element should look smooth and round, if not then it needs to be replaced. Be sure to turn power off to the oven before replacing it. Remove the screws that fasten the element to the back wall and gently pull the element away from the wall an inch or so. the wires will be exposed and can be unclipped from the element do not let them fall inside of the back of the oven or you will have to remove the oven from the wall to get at the back panel. Install the new element in the reverse procedure. If the element looks good then it will have to be tested with a multimeter to verify that it is still good before proceeding to check the selector switch for burn marks.

SOURCE: 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.

I performed self cleaning on my oven a week ago. Since the,. the sign -F3- comes on with a continous beeping sound every timeI turn my oven on. Its not working right and i cannot use it to bake or boil....


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F3 error code indicates a open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you wan to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. However, I believe it is the sensor as the problem is only with bottom oven. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Shortly after pressing the Bake button it starts beeping and F3 shows on screen. In the past, it would do this a couple times and then begin to heat and be fine. Othertimes, it would just stop cooking in...


F3 error code is telling you the oven temperature sensor has failed on the oven. You can access the oven sensor from inside the oven. The sensor is a stainless steel probe about 1/4 inch in diameter and several inches long. Disconnect the power to the oven and remove the screws that secure the probe to the rear oven wall and you can usually pull it into the oven.

We are using self clean feature. continuous beep about 20 minutes into cleaning screen shows F# locked door and beeps nonstop. what can we do to stop beeping but still proced with self cleaning?


F3 is a bad oven temp sensor. The sensor fail F3 code will appear if during self clean that it senses temps above 915F, or there is an open / short in the temp sensor. The only thing you can do is replace the sensor. Just getting the oven door open can be a real pain as you have unlatch the oven door lock to get to the screws that are in the top lip above the oven door so that you can change the sensor. Depending on model you may have to reach through a burner to manually unlatch the oven door lock or remove the side panel of the oven to manually unlatch the door lock. On most units It will not continue to self clean with an F3 code detected. Once an F3 code is detected the ERC shuts off power to the bake and broil elements so that it does not catch fire from a run away temperature condition.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Have a Kenmore gas oven. About midway thru bake cycle it flashes an F3 and beeps


F3 is a bad temperature sensor. Look in the top left or right of the oven for a short thin round metal piece sticking out of the back of the oven. Turn off the power to the range. Remove the screws,carefully pull the wires out through the front. Replace it with a new temp sensor and bake away.
