Following cleaning, the oven does not respond properly to the selected temperature. When we select a temperature, say 400, a temperature of 77 is displayed. However, the oven does heat up, if anything it goes beyond the temeperature we want.

Re: KitchenAid Electric Range Model KESC307HB56
Electronic control has probably failed.....Self clean on many ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by this operation. Suggest oven cleaner method next time.

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.What is the model number?
Do you mean an F3-E3 code? I've never seen a KitchenAid S3 code.
The F3 code means that the oven temperature sensor is bad. The E3 indicates that the sensor indicated an excessively high temp during the clean cycle.
Please determine the full model number of your range to ensure that you get the correct sensor. The sensor costs between $75-80, depending on the vendor. I used the KERS807SSS02 for a guide. www.searspartsdirect.com and http://www.appliancepartspros.com both have the sensor in stock.
If the range is still under warranty, contact KitchenAid for the repair.
Hi ad welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly Here is the service manual: http://appliancedigest.com/index.php?/files/file/242-whirlpool-kac-34-kitchenaid-self-cleaning-slide-in-electric-range-service-manual You have to join the site to get the manual but of all sites this one is a gold mine of information. I am sending this link now and will respond again after my almost 3 hour manual download of the manual. I have to read the manaul myself before responding. My intial thoughts are the following: Possible door lock failure, an oven sensor has failed or a high limit thermostat has failed. I will resond with the code F5 E3 data after the manual completes. Thanks for choosing FixYa, Kelly
The error code F-2 means that oven temp is too high; you need to : 1. Test operation of door lock on self-clean models 2. Test relay contact operation 3. High resistance in oven temperature sensor
Error F-3 means you need to open oven temperature sensor/thermal fuse and replace oven temperature sensor/thermal fuse.
Please revert for any further assistance and Do rate this solution as "FixYa" if found useful.
is it the glasstop range with the oven control panel in the front? if so one of your over temperature thermostats is faulty.. it is probably causing an f-1 error.OR.. your temperature probe in the oven could be going bad.
We had the same problem, and we tricked it into running it's cycle be doing the following;
1. Wrap a wet paper towel around the probe, plug it in, and close the door. Then follow the temp. probe directions in the manual: 2. Set probe temp. at 130 degrees, then select a bake cycle. We selected convect bake. 3. Set oven temp for 275 degrees, but maybe any temp over the probe temp would work. 4. Then start. The cycle took 12 minutes to complete, and when it was finished, turn the oven off and then open the door and unplug the probe. 5. Now everything works fine.
