Hello,The problem is the heating element. This is easy to check and usually inexpensive. There is a video at that will walk you through testing and replacing. It may be a different model but the testing and replacement will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.

What causes the flame switch to cut out ion an Imperial ICVD convection oven

This flame sensor switch is a safety device that only allows the main valve to open after is is satisfied there is a pilot flame. Otherwise if there were no pilot and the main valve was allowed to open, the inside of the burner area would quickly fill with gas and pose an exposion hazard. The original capillary tube type switch is obsolete and a new electronic unit conversion kit is available. Contact Imperial tech support for more information

Not sure if you have electronic or mechanical thermostat. However problem is likely to be in the electronic ignition sequence box (Usually a Fenwall) Also check the panel cooling fan is working, it cools the Fenwall box.

Get f-3 code after oven on for awhile

F3 is Open oven temperature sensor circuit, to fix this you need to read oven temperature sensor circuit at oven temperature sensor ( approx 1000 ohms at room temp); check for cut or pinched wire or loss of contact, if wirings are ok, then replace the probe.

this is a common indication that the ignition module is probably going bad or the flame sensor is not sensing the flame on the burners. There are other, more technical issues possible but this is usually the most common. The "not restart" , if referring to the burners, is an indication that the ignition module has "locked out" the system, usually after 3 failures of attempts to light the burners.

Wrench, clearly something is causing them to do what they do. Best I can give you are thinking points.

Does this happen every time?
Is there something else on the circuit that could cause undervoltage?
If the hi temp is tripping, why? Put a thermometer in the oven and see where it is.

My oven won't heat to temp properly...

All the ovens should be checked out at the factory. With that said it sounds like the thermocouple is bad or not installed correctly.
