Re: Gas double oven--Roper

Are quasar temperature probes still available? I have an old Microwave that requires a probe as when we try to cook with the probe all we get is FFFF on the display. I am told that Panasonic do not make the probes any more.

Re: Gas double oven--Roper

This code means you have a bad temperature sensor or thermal fuse, or a fault in the wiring harness to or from one of them.

We are getting an F3 message on GE JVM1750DM microwave. After turning off power and then back on. It works for a few minutes, but then the F3 message come back ?


F3 error in your GE microwave means that the keypad/touchpad is bad and should be replaced. However, before replacing it you can follow these step by step instructions to clean the touchpad assembly and see if it works:

1) Unplug microwave
2) Remove two small screws from upper face plate
3) Remove screw on upper side of control panel
4) Life panel and pull out
5) Identify flat tape-like harness connecting circuit card to keypad
6) Wipe down harness with an all-purpose wipe
7) Use hairdryer to dry remaining leftover moisture

8) After this put the keypad back if its not solved then replace it.

Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Error message of "F3" appears

F3 or F4
Open or shorted 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.

Keep us updated.

What the code f3 mean my stove model # is 911.9584991


This model ( Kenmore ) has been built by Roper ( 911 - First 3 digits tell you the manufacturer's name ).

F3 refers to Oven temperature sensor open.

You need to check the oven temperature sensor.The value of oven temperature sensor should be around 1100 ohms at room temperature. In case, it is too high or low, you need to replace that.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Spacemaker beeping loud and f3 message driving us crazy

The error code F3 indicates an oven sensor problem. The oven sensor is most likely the failed part. The oven sensor probe must have the correct resistance readings at specific temperatures. When the electronic range control (ERC) cannot identify the correct resistance of the oven sensor or the resistance is way out of specs F3 will display.
I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your oven.

My lower oven does not work; top oven works fine

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Thereshould also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind thecontrol panel or hidden inside behind the back cover, etc., and it's very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
