Used self cleaning process on my oven yesterday and today the oven will not turn on, we keep getting message to unlock the oven door even though it is. What can we do?


The oven gets extremely hot during the self-cleaning mode... the door switch might have got stuck in locked position, or broken in locked position (to be replaced), let's hope it's just stuck...which you'll need to work the mechanical lock-unlock latching back and forth to hopefully unstick....and if that doesn't work just re-run self-cleaning process but this time let the oven cool completely before unlocking the door. Hope this helps.

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 .

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.

Roper oven B9757X0 Did a self-cleaning. When finished fan was still running. Error message F3. Turned breaker on & off. When try to use fan kicks on, but not off.


The F3 error code indicates a fault with the Oven Temperature Sensor (RTD) being Open. The soultion is to replace oven temperature sensor (RTD). Also check the wiring harness to the sensor for damage.

Linking F3 when trying to turn on the oven


While using the self clean feature you burned out the oven temp sensor.
Replace the oven temp sensor.
Do not use self clean on any oven unless you want to replace parts,
