Hello,

F3 stands for a faulty oven sensor. Unplug the oven, then replace the sensor. Should be back to normal. The sensor is inside the oven. When you pull on the sensor, you will get to a male/female quick connector. When you unplug it, be careful not to lose the other end behind the oven wall or this simple repair won't be so simple anymore.
Take care.

Depending on the exact model it is either a short on the temp sensor OR a fan on with no oven selected.

If it is the sensor then it will look similar to one of these
http://www.applianceaid.com/pictools/Tempsensors.JPG

To get the EXACT sensor you need a model number and they can be found in two places

One is on the rear of the unit and the other is stamped into an area near a door.

On models that have a lower drawer there is sometimes some extra info there too

Without an exact model it is like throwing mud at the moon "Ya just ain't gonna hit it"

F3 on stove. Can't turn off


Hi Marie -

Since you didn't mention the brand and model of your stove - I can only offer general help. The first thing I recommend is that you shut off the power to the stove at the circuit breaker panel. It should be a double-wide 40 or 50 amp circuit breaker. Move the handle to the OFF position and leave it there for 30 seconds or so. Then return the handle to the ON position again. Doing this should "erase" the memory of the stove and reset the electronics. If the problem is not longer an issue - the F3 code should be gone. If it returns, we'll have to do more. That will require knowing the name of stove's manufacturer and model number. Let me know how you make out and if you need more help - provide the info requested and I'll see what else I can do. Good luck!

Can not re set time


Are you trying to reset the timer or the Clock? It's a bit different on each stove, but usually if it's the clock, you press the Clock button TWICE, the time will then begin to flash on and off. then press the + or - sign to increase or decrease the time. When you have gotten to the time you desire, PRESS the Clock button ONCE more. The time will be set, & then you should be all set :).

If it's the KITCHEN TIMER, Press the Kitchen Timer button ONCE, the timer will start flashing. It will usually flash all 0000's. Press the + sign to add minutes, then Press the Timer Button ONCE again, it will be set to the amount of time you added and will beep once the time runs out.

Disclaimer: This instruction is primarily for the General Electric Stove. If you state your specific model, I could be more specific.

After my oven heats up and ive set the timer it starts beeping and showing F3 and doesnt stop soihave to turn it off


The "F3" error code means the oven sensor is open.

An ohmmeter reading for the open circuit should be "∞".

Resistance should be measured across both wires.

The following article on our forum will explain in detail how to run a continuity test using either an analog meter or a digital meter – How to check continuity with Ohmmeter.

- The part number for the oven sensor is AP2023862

Here are the break down diagrams for the GE range Model JB940AB1AA

Old Eaton Viking Stove - broil won't turn off.


I have the same stove, and just had the same problem. I looked all over the internet to try to find an answer, and then went back to my stove to check the serial number and where the fuses are was the instructions printed on the stove itself.

SO HERE'S THE SOLUTION
1. The timer start knob (the one with little running guy picture) must NOT be pushed in. If it is, turn it slowly until it snaps out.
2. The timer stop knob (the one with the picture of the stop sign) must be completely pushed in.

I hope that helps everyone out!

to jenna 12 Does your stove have a stop and start timer? When you set your clock you may have inadvertantly moved the stop or start time on that timer. Check them, if they have knobs for setting the stop and start time, make sure the pointer is pointing to the current time and that the knob is popped out and not stuck in. when you have it right both the stop and the start knob should be out, not pushed in. They will pop out when you turn them to the current time.

These timers allow you to start something cookin at a time delayed several hours. this means they will not allow the oven to come on until it hits that time that you may have set in error.

If your stove has a digital stop and start timer check each one so that both show the current time, then your oven should light.
