Question about Kenmore 91112 / 91114 / 91117 Electric Kitchen Range

F-3 error code

I have a Kenmore range Model 911.9358810 I intermittently comes on even when we are not using the oven. It also sometimes comes on when using the oven or broiler but not all the time. I've read from other comments and solutions that the oven sensor may be bad, what's a good test before I spend the $73.00 for a new sensor?

Re: f-3 error code

F3 indicates a failed oven temperature sensor. Your model number indicates that your range is manufactured by Roper. They recommend measuring the resistance of the oven probe (at room temperature). It should read approx. 1100 ohms. If the reading is bad, replace the oven probe. This is a repair you can perform yourself. The probe is mounted on the back of the oven wall in either the upper left, or upper right-hand corner. The part number is 252618 and costs (like you said) about $73. If you need guidance on how to remove/replace or measure, let me know. I hope I do not insult your intelligence. I generally ask, because some people are not savvy when it comes to electronics. I hope this information is helpful.

Why does my kenmore range beep and show an error code every time I open the oven door?

See if this helps...,AAABAWGODxk~,hLHEX2tm6AFlgSDzRIBPGX7yjI__nHLT&bctid=1974107068001

Sometimes shutting off the circuit breaker that the range or oven is connected to for 30 seconds will clear the fault, error or function code.

F3 or F30 means that there may be a problem with the oven sensor.
Your oven sensor may need to be replaced.

91136669891 HAS ERROR CODE F2 F3

Are you sure about this error? The 91136669891 was made by Whirlpool for the Kenmore line. The 4 character codes for these ranges are F# E# (not two Fs).

Depending on which error you are actually have see below.

If the code includes F3 then you have a problem with the oven temperature sensor (F3 E2 would be temperature too high). You need to replace the sensor. Sears Parts Direct has the sensor for $74.12: . The complete diagram of the oven parts is available here: . The sensor is part 253.

If the code includes F2, then double check the second code. Whirlpool has no F2 E3 error that I know of. However, F2 errors tend to be a problem with the keypad. Check the wiring connection between the keypad and the control. This should be firm. Then press Cancel. If the error persists, you need to replace the keypad. See for the parts diagram and prices.

I hope this helps.

I am not sure what model of Kenmore Gas Range I have but I get an F10 error and unable to turn on the oven.

Hello Edgar,
The F10 error code means that function key (bake/broil/clean ect) on the touchpad is defective. Sometimes just making sure that the ribbon cable on the touchpad is connected tight into the control board.
The error code could be cleared by pushing CANCEL/OFF button..if error code returns the touchpad would need to be replaced.

Kenmore oven control beeps and shows F1

According to Kenmore's list of error codes, F1 means EOC (Electronic Oven Control) failure, and the solution is to replace the EOC. You might look into that. The part itself costs around $80, as far as I can see.

Nothing Works Shows F3 Error

the F3 error code is an oven temperature sensor fault. The sensor is a small probe that sticks out of the back of the oven wall. They do go bad and can be easily replaced. If I had your EXACT model number (found along the inside of the oven door or lower drawer) you can replace it.hope this helps

Error code E2F3

Traci, The error code means overtemperature, just what happened to you. It exceeded 575 degrees. Two things that have to be checked here. First the temp sensor itself, it should ohm out at 1080 at room temperature. If it's within specs, which I doubt, then the main board has to be checked for a welded or closed relay. I wouldn't use the oven. back.
