Question about Maytag Ovens

What does an F3 trouble code mean? We were using the self-cleaning feature when this came on. We were cleaning it because we thought it might help the thermostat, which has been keeping the oven running 150-200 degrees cool.

Hi, F3 code means Shorted or open oven temperature sensor (RTD)
Solution Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.

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.

Amana Self-cleaning Oven flashes F2 and F3 and beeps. It doesn't get real hot. Although it does heat up not the appropriate temperature.


Hi, F2 error code on the Amana Oven means "Oven too hot" You have to replace Oven temperature sensor to fix it.
F3 error code means "Open or shorted oven temperature sensor". Yo also have to replace Oven temperature sensor to fix it.

Summarily, both code has to do with the temperature sensor which you need to replace...

Oven will not come on after replacing the probe. still gives an f3 code.


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. F3 error code means the oven temperature sensor (above 3000 ohms) is open and you need to check for open wire connection between EOC (Electronic Oven Control - Clock) and the oven temperature sensor. If there is no wiring problem then you need to replace sensor. Please also check resistance of oven temperature sensor.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
