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.

I have a Kenmore 66575014101 oven I get F3 fault code but I replaced the Temperature sensor and it still gives the F3 fault code


I found this on line don't know if it will help but it might send you in the right direction for testing to determine if it's worth repairing-- sorry
Shortly after a series of power failures I started receiving this error code. Looked up it online and did some extensive research. Everything pointed to a faulty sensor so I purchased a new sensor and installed it today. It didnt help, and testing my old sensor I determined it was also working. In the service manual it stated to do the following corrective action for the F3 - E0/E1/E2/E3 error codes:

Quote: 1. Measure sensor value (between connector pins) between 1000 ? @ 32° F and 2697 ? @ 900° F (room temperature approx. = 1080 ? ). If measurement does not correlate to real temperature, disconnect power, replace sensor and refer to steps 3-5. Also measure from sensor connector to sensor casing for possible short.

2. Trace wires and connectors to sensor, from control, then from sensor back to control. If all connections made and no wire damage, refer to step 3.

3. Disconnect power for longer than 30 seconds

4. Re-apply power and press BAKE and START/ENTER. Observe for longer than 1 minute.

5. If failure remains, disconnect power, replace control, then go back to step 4. I also tested the resistance of the sensors control panel wire harness connector and they are correct. Next step outlined in the service manual is to replace the control board. Sears has the control panel in stock for $177.47. This to me is not worth it over the cost of a whole new oven. Are there any fuses or anything else that could easily or cheaply be replaced before throwing out the oven. Thankyou very much in advance for your time!

Oven will say F3 and shut down what does F3 mean no book?


Kenmore' F2 or F3 usually points to an open oven temperature sensor. If that is the problem, it's not an expensive repair.

I have a kenmore ultra bake, model #665 75022101 and the oven doesnt work the code E0-F3 comes up. i have the manual and have tried what they said to do but it doesnt work. i have bought a new sensor


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.

F3 error code on Kenmore 911-45569690


Yep F3 I dont even have to look that up fault with oven tempreture sensor. If you perform an ohms test on it at room tempreture should read between 1000-1100 ohms if less then replace. Thanks again
