Question about Kenmore Kitchen Ranges
Hello, welcome to "fixya".
The F3 error code on 99.9% of all ovens means you have a shorted or open temperature sensor. You will also want to check for any pinched or frayed wires going to the sensor form your clock/erc/timer assembly.
To determine the actual sensor you need you'd have to provide a model number since kenmore is only a brand name for sears, the range itself could be made by any number of manufacturer's.
Let me know if I can assist you further, if not please take a moment and rate the answer I provided for you today and thank you for visiting "fixya" for your error inquiry.

F3 is sensor failure. The sensor is metal probe that you can see inside the oven on the back wall. It is a little smaller than a pencil in size. The first thing to check is the plugs from that device to the clock. The wire runs behind the back panel up to the clock. If the plugs are connected tight then you have to replace the sensor. If you have an ohmmeter the reading at room temperature should be about 1080 ohms.
Be sure to unplug the power cord before taking any panels off.
