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.

good luck

Hi,

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.

F3 code


I don't think in is unsafe to operate. I worked with boilers that used igniters and a temperature sensors. Usually what these codes mean is (simply error codes ) to guide you which part/s does not function or respond correctly or within a certain time in seconds and brings up this code, but if you get it to ignite, use it like that until you can get someone to do some maintenance on it. Just remember, if your heat is not at the correct temperature, your igniter will fire, but will not be able to ignite the flame.
Meybe lookat this video will make you understand better.

Cleaned stove, replaced bottom element, stove reading F3, F7 and F9. Oven will not work. But will work on Clean Cycle.


Initially, it sounds like a problem with the lock mechanism. Without the brand or model number, it's impossible to know what the fault codes mean. You may find them listed on a tech sheet in a plastic pocket behind the console.
F3 is usually a temperature sensor. F7 may be a keypad problem and F9 (on some machines) means there's something wrong with the door lock.
Sometimes during a self clean cycle, a high temp thermostat/ fuse fails, preventing the door from unlocking.
