Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

your F3 means: Oven temperature sensor open you cannot reset this type of problem.

Check oven temperature sensor, should be ~1100 ohms at room temperature. If too high or low, replace oven temperature sensor

F3 is usually an oven temp sensor. Replace the sensor. (pencil shapped probe at back top inside oven) It usually can be replaced from inside the oven by gently coaxing the plastic connector through the hole behind the sensor. Sometimes, it is only the plastic plug connecting the sensor. A possible bad connection can be eliminated by usings ceramic (high heat) twist wire connectors to make better connections.

This is a open oven temp sensor circuit.Check the oven temp probe it should read 100 ohms at room temp.Or if you can not check the ohms then replace the oven probe.

Copper, F3 means oven temp sensor is open. You need to replace the probe. Easy job. Part number I have for this is WB23X5340, but double check your model number. Look it up on the net to see what you are going after...Catriver..post back

SOURCE: f3 code

It's your oven temperature sensor. It's a thin metal stick that juts into the oven. It is located on the upper right back wall of the oven cavity. Flip your breaker, slide out the oven. You install it from the back, very simple, two screws, i think. I'm a beginner at DIY and had no problem fixing it.

F3 and F2 Errror messages on my GE convection oven


F2 & F3 are fault codes relating to the oven temperature sensor

F2 during bake means a temperature of over 630 deg has been reached
F3 means shorted oven temperature sensor

What it means is you will most likely need to have the oven temperature sensor (thermostat) replaced .

What is an F3 message on a GE Profile JKP18 oven ?


Hi jmjburns,

The F3 fault code description is an open or shorted oven temperature sensor. Please check the sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. If the wiring is ok and still encountering the same error, please replace the temperature sensor.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Have -F3- on the screen and nothing works


Hi,

**FIRST; shut off the breaker or unplug the unit before going any further please**

"F3" on most GE ovens describes a fault with the oven sensor or sensor circuit. Ohm out the sensor. It should read approx.1100ohms. @ room temperature.

The other possible faults are a bad solder on the control, a pinched or severed wire from control to sensor.

Having said all that, 99% of the time, its' a sensor. most common GE sensor is part # wb21x5301.

hope that helps

good luck

I have the same problem. I noticed that the oven gets to the selected temp ok. Then when the pilot attempts to RELIGHT, it gets the error F3. Did you get a solution? After other posts, I will see if the temp sensor is around 1100 ohm as suggested by others. Ken
