This code is usually an oven sensor that is telling the control that the oven is too hot, This is why the fan stays on. Try replacing oven sensor. This is the steel rod on inside oven in back wall at top left or right. Even though you can usually unscrew from front, it often won't come out far enough to unplug it from harness. If it does, be sure you get plug back through both walls of oven, or it will melt. Use end of small screwdriver stuck in the connector to guide through back wall. If doesn't come out you mist pull oven out if wall and access from rear.

My oven is showing f3 once its preheated and i set the timer it keeps beeping till i shut if off...what do i do??

That F-3 is a bad oven control or a bad sensor or both. 81aa179.jpgTo verify a bad sensor unplug the quick connect and check for continuity (bad if open)
Check for continuity between each wire and ground. If the sensor is grounded it is bad

Hi jmhostetler9,

This F3 that keeps flashing on your oven is caused by a shorted or open oven temperature sensor (RTD). To fix this problem check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.You may contact Sears for the replacement part at 1-800-252-1698; M-F 6:30 AM-10:30 PM - Sat 7:00 AM-9:30 PM - Sun 7:30 AM-9:30 PM - All times Central. Just get your model # ready when you call.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.
