    I took all of the back panels off. I don't see any wording at all regarding P3, for instance. BTW: There was a 2 second power outage just before all of this happened.

    Thank you for your efforts and comments. We unplugged it, waited for 15 seconds, and then plugged it back in. The error code went away. The oven now works correctly. Thank you again for your time. I will keep these comments for further reference.

Although i looked up by model number and couldn't find any "lower"sensor, the tech sheet does does list it as an open lower sensor,and here's an abbreviated portion of their repair, which ultimately leads to replacing the lower thermistor that i can seem to locate

Open the back panels and make sure the indicated temperature sensor is plugged in.
Check connector P3 on the power board. Make sure it is plugged in and fully seated.
If it is not, make the proper connection
Visually inspect the wires between P3 on the power board and the indicated temperature sensor. Make sure the wires are not cut or pinched. For the following sensors, the resistance value
should read:
Lower Oven Sensor Between 931 and 2869 ω.
(Approx. 1080 ω at room temp).
replace lower thermistor

    the "p3" was referring to a point on the circuit board, which on this machine is all but assessable, the sensor that it refers to as being bad is the electronic thermistor/temp sensor. located in oven cavity(top left corner sticking out maybe 3-4 inches.heres the part number i you wanna try replacing that b-4 calling a service guy 4455636. 2 screws and a plug

Frigidaire oven FSC88B-4 shows "Err F3 " message. What to do?


F3 - Open/shorted sensor (RTD probe) connection.
Check the temperature sensor and the wires and plugs between the sensor and the EOC are good, replace the temperature sensor (RTD probe). If the sensor and wiring are good, the EOC would need to be replaced.

Whrilpool range error code E4 -F3-


Hello,
The F3-E4 error code means that the oven sensor tempature probe has shorted out and it needs to be replaced. This link http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/whirlpool-oven-sensor-item-number-ap4099532.aspx shows you what the sensor looks like.It in back wall of the oven cavity usually in the upper left side. To check to see if it indeed shorted,unplug it from where it plugs into in the back panel and use a ohm meter and look for a IF GOOD ohms value of 1060-1100 ohms IF it test at ZERO ohmhs or from 1-500 ohms the sensor is going to be shorted and needs to be replaced. It will only be considered good if at room temp is 1060-1100 plus/minus 40ohms

Read out says E4 F3 what does this mean?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F3-E4 in your range means oven temperature sensor circuit failure. To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the oven temp. sensor circuit if the reading is more then 1100ohms then it should be replaced however, if the rating is fine then it is the Electronic Range Control (ERC) that has gone bad & should be replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Whirlpool Gold Accubake Duo. ''E4 - F3'' or ''E0 - F3''


HI. These codes are an indication of oven temperature sensor failure. The sensor is damaged. This will not allow for proper operations. The affected part must be replaced, asap.

The sensor is, generally, located inside the oven, mounted on the back wall, on the top right, or left corner.It will look like a 4 inch long slender probe. There will be two screws holding the housing on the back of the oven wall. Once the screws are removed, the sensor will need to be extracted from the back side of the unit.

What does E4 - F3 - mean on display on range


It means something may be wrong with the oven sensor. The Whirlpool technical manual says:

Check for open circuit. Sensor resistance should be 1K to 1.1K @ room temperature. If not, replace the sensor.

If you need help on how to do that, let me know.
