Replaced damaged RTD. (bent and open)
Prior to the failure, my wife used to have to light one of the top burners to get the oven to fire. All top burners light properly.
The glow plug lights up fine, all red hot. So I assumed the circuit through the valve is complete. Am I wrong on that? Is the valve compromised in some other way?
the real oven model # is FGF326ASF, not found in the drop down menu below.

Re: oven will not light
One of the Ignitor/orifice assy.,electrode is bad expecially the one your wife have to light.The circuitry is ok,but change that bad ignitor/orifice assy electrode. Part number is Item # 833121: check it out @ www.repairclinic.com

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Both error codes are to do with a runaway temperature or not sensing temperature correct. Make sure the oven sensor is plugged into the board correct or one of the wires wasn't damaged.Since the control was replaced i would make sure it was wired correct.The oven sensor or rtd probe is the short rod coming through the back oven wall in the top section. If all the wiring is correct and plugged in correct the probe is shorted or the relay on the control.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..
Defective touch pad or clock (ERC)
Replace touch pad or clock (ERC). Touch pad is a more common problem. Refer to F1 test at the top of this page for more information.
F3 or F4
Shorted or open 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.
Hi, the F4 error code means 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.
You can raise the top lid of the stove to light the pilot lights for the top burners. The oven is controlled by a electric glowbar ignitor. Make sure the cord is plugged into a electrical outlet. If it is and the oven does not work the glowbar ignitor must be replaced.
RTD is resistence tempature detector. The oven is telling you that the tempature probe circuit is open. The temapture probe may have been damaged due to the self-cleaning cycle or it could just be the wiring harness is loose. You will need to remove the tempature probe and test it with a ohm meter. The average reading should be aroun 1200 ohms at room tempature. If it is testing open or the ohm reading is way off then you will need to replace the tempature probe. If it is testing good then it could be aproblem with the control board.
Concerning the F3(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.
Concerning the F1(Stuck touch pad)
Usually means that either the touch pad or the oven control (also called
clock or ERC) is defective and needs to be replaced. If this fault code
cannot be cancelled, replace the oven control (also called clock or ERC),
touch pad, or both.
