Hi dpaulthomas,

The F3 fault code description is a shorted or open oven temperature sensor. The easiest way to resolve this error is to check the sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. If you noticed that the wiring is all ok, replace the oven temperature sensor (RTD).

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

The oven reached a very high temperature and the digital screen read F1 and F3 at times and also beeped for sometime... could not turn the oven off so I unplugged it.. Not sure what F1 or F3 means...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F3 error code indicates an open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the temp.sensor needs replacement. If you want to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

F3 displayed and won't stop beeping


F3 in most machines is an indicator of a faulty/shorted oven sensor. Disconnect the sensor quick connect and it should Ohm out to around 1100 ohms. Check fro continuity between each wire to frame. If you get a reading your pesky sensor has shorted to frame. Replace that ****** and party on!

Display reads " -F3-


Replace the oven temperature sensor. Unplug the range. Open the oven. The temp sensor will be in the top right or left of the oven.A short metal piece about half the size of a pencil. Remove the screws,pull it out carefully. Disconnect the wire plug. Reverse this order to install the new sensor.

F1 is displayed on Maytag Electric Oven I ran the self-clean cycle on my Maytag Model MER5530 oven yesterday; before it completed F3 was displayed and beeps sounded. I pressed CANCEL, the F3...


Hi

F1 error means that you have either a bad ERC (clock) or a bad touch pad. To check these please follow these simple instructions:
  1. Disconnect power to stove
  2. Gain access to the back of the clock (electronic range control or ERC).
  3. Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide.
  4. Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on.
  5. Turn power back on to stove.
  6. Watch for the F1 and listen for the beep.
  7. If you get the F1 and beep, replace the ERC.
  8. If after approx. 30 minutes you do NOT get the F1 and hear the beep, replace the touch pad...

When using oven it beeps and displays f3


Could be one of 2 problems. Perhaps both.
Unplug the range.Access the control panel and unplug the ribbon connector from the control.
Wait 35 seconds and re-connect it.
If it continues to beep and code replace the temperature sensor.
