Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F3 in your range/oven 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
Rylee

We are using self clean feature. continuous beep about 20 minutes into cleaning screen shows F# locked door and beeps nonstop. what can we do to stop beeping but still proced with self cleaning?


F3 is a bad oven temp sensor. The sensor fail F3 code will appear if during self clean that it senses temps above 915F, or there is an open / short in the temp sensor. The only thing you can do is replace the sensor. Just getting the oven door open can be a real pain as you have unlatch the oven door lock to get to the screws that are in the top lip above the oven door so that you can change the sensor. Depending on model you may have to reach through a burner to manually unlatch the oven door lock or remove the side panel of the oven to manually unlatch the door lock. On most units It will not continue to self clean with an F3 code detected. Once an F3 code is detected the ERC shuts off power to the bake and broil elements so that it does not catch fire from a run away temperature condition.

Roper oven B9757X0 Did a self-cleaning. When finished fan was still running. Error message F3. Turned breaker on & off. When try to use fan kicks on, but not off.


The F3 error code indicates a fault with the Oven Temperature Sensor (RTD) being Open. The soultion is to replace oven temperature sensor (RTD). Also check the wiring harness to the sensor for damage.

F2 f3 starts beeping when using stove or oven


F2
Oven temperature too hot
Check and replace oven temperature sensor (RTD).
F3
Open oven temperature sensor (RTD)
Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.
So i suppose its a sensor replacement is necessary.These are the fault code explanations by frigidaire.good luck with the machine.Please do post results and comments.
