This error indicates the Oven temperature sensor has failed,
You will need to replace the Oven temperature sensor (RTD).
I have an f3 code - moz-screenshot-1.jpgbe5cd76.jpg
This part can usually be replaced from inside the oven.

F-3 signal on Jenn-Air SVE47600, grill-range, self-cleaning convection oven

The F3 means there is something wrong in the sensor circuit, sensor/wiring/clock. F3 Problem: 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.

My parents are getting an F3 on their Amana gas stove. This stove is about 9 years old. Not sure of the model. The burners are working fine, but they cannot use the oven. Any ideas? Many thanks!!

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F3 error code indicates a open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you wan 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.

I'm getting an F3 error on my 9 year old Kenmore range. Worth fixing, or replacing the range?

F3 is usually the oven sensor. Worth the repair. Some times also the connection where the sensor plugs to the board has a faulty solder connection which is also repairable.

Bad electronic contral panel on Amana gas range

On the Amana: Several Ebay stores carry panels like this. Problem is, once you open electronics they usually are hard to send back.

The stove is ten years old. You'll likely spend more than it is worth finding the right part and repairing it. It might be a good time to consider buying a new stove and selling this one for parts or scrap.

Stove is reading F3 and beeping

Peace tete1,
At your service!

You say your stove is reading F3 and beeping?

With an error code the only way to find and to repair this is,

First unplug the washer and wait a few minutes then restart it like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
If it corrects the problem GREAT.

If not only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.

How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

Bless You

Thank You

Error code F3-E4 Whirlpool Electric Range RF388LXKQ

the solution that the recommended appliance reapir person told me for my whirlpool electric range oven not coming on and a display of E1 F1 was to replace the digital control center with new one for $425, this is after an $89 service call to just tell me what was wrong. Since the range cost only $645 I will probably instead learn to bake with the convection part of teh microwave /convection oven I got last year for $295, and hope the obsolescence engineer at whirlfool has a burnt thanksgiving turkey and fallen cakes. this problem w/ the oven not working occurred while I was on vacation and the power company had a light out problem in our neighborhood then I guess sent a power surge back on and did my six year old oven in. Should have kept my old simple gas range.
