Question about Ovens
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.

The error code message F3 E0 indicates an open oven sensor circuit. This is the component that regulates the oven temperature.
First disconnect electrical power to the range. Pull the range out & remove the rear panel to the control area. Unplug the 2 violet wires on P3 5-6. You will need to have a meter for testing, set the meter to read ohms (resistance). Place the leads from the multimeter across the 2 violet wires, the meter should read 1080ohms if the sensor is good. If you do not get the correct reading you will need to replace the oven temp sensor.
The oven temp sensor is mounted to the inside of the oven cavity. You will need to remove the lower section of the rear panel to access the sensor connector. Unplug the sensor & slide it back into the oven cavity to remove & replace.
