SOURCE: F3 meaning ?

"F3 Shorted key panel (touch pad), will occur if a shorted key panel is detected continuously over 60 seconds"

You have a shorting membrane keypad. If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your model number) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Have a TE code showing on my kenmore elite microwave hood combo


At some place I saw that the TE error refers to the touch panel.
If you go to http://www.searspartsdirect.com/ and enter your full model number you can get parts list and buy parts and even get repair advice.
Link below shows how to replace a control panel on some model of microwave oven. In the video you will see a ribbon cable being removed. You might want to wipe the contacts of the ribbon with alcohol and put it back in to see if it helps with your problem.

Error message of "F3" appears


F3 or F4
Open or shorted 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.

Keep us updated.

Kenmore microwave oven model # 721 63684300 built 5/2003. Does not heat, after 25-30 sec. F9 appears on keypad. Everything else works---timer, clock, lights, horizontal turnstyle.


I checked the owners manual and it does not list the fault codes. Manufactures leave this information out of the manual most of the time so you have to call them for service.

Call 1-800-4-my-home (sears) and tell them the problem. You will also need to provide the m# so have that ready when you call.

Good Luck

What the code f3 mean my stove model # is 911.9584991


Hi,

This model ( Kenmore ) has been built by Roper ( 911 - First 3 digits tell you the manufacturer's name ).

F3 refers to Oven temperature sensor open.

You need to check the oven temperature sensor.The value of oven temperature sensor should be around 1100 ohms at room temperature. In case, it is too high or low, you need to replace that.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Kenmore microwave/convection


That's not the full model number, but the 363 prefix tells me it's made by GE.

For GE models, the F3 fault code means a bad or failing keypad, even though yours may be intermittent for now.

Once it fails solidly, you can order a new keypad. It's not too hard a job for the DIYer.

Feel free to contact me directly for tips on doing the job: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You would need the full model number from the tag on the microwave.

You can enter that model number to find helpful exploded views and order parts here: http:///www3.sears.com (the 3 is correct)

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
