F3 Error Code

This is a 15 year old Kenmore wall over that I can't even find on the parts list anymore.


Age old question is should we fix it or just go down and buy a new one?


I am a moderately capable do-it-yourselfer.  Is this something that I might be able to fix myself?


From what I gather this most likely is a thermostat or sensor problem.


Any help or advice is appreciated.

    Turn it on to bake and it runs for awhile then the F3 error code beeps. Sometimes works sometimes doesn't? So frustrating, someone please help.

I know what you mean. I was cooking with this appliance tonight and suddenly it displayed an f-3 code. My advantium oven is less than 8 months old. Not sure how this happened or how to fix the problem. In order to sleep tonight (the constant beeping) I had to shut power off at the breaker pannel. Is this representative of the the type of quality that GE stands for???? I am sooo frustrated. I cook with my advantium oven all the time and love the dual abilities of this appliance. Like I said this is brand new and to have the f-3 code which apparently (from what I read) is a failed key pad. I am very dissapointed and am begining to think about pulling my stock from this company!

I have a wall oven that is 15 years old and it's making a loud noise, after it's turned off. This has never happened before.

Don't burn your house down! Get a new wall oven. FYI Sears no longer sells Whirlpool.

Any ideas how to fix a GE wall oven that is NOT self-cleaning, but sometimes shuts off and the locked door light flashes and will not let me turn on the oven again for a while? I guess it needs to co

sounds like one of the safety features is bad
it might be as easy as replacing one part (could be anywhere from $5 to $95 though some can be more)

but i don't have even a parts list let alone the schematics to be more helpful.

one thing to consider when deciding fix or buy new is the age of unit
likely that more efficient units are available

if you are renting the landlord should be informed of the faulty unit connected to the gas and electricity (code words for likely a major safety hazard)

if you own the new unit likely will save you money since it will be more energy effecient

Wall microwave worth fixing?

There's micro switches and fuses worth fixing on microwaves... if its doing nothing its most likely the fuse on control board. maybe even the breaker.

I have a caloric oven, prestige series. Don't know model. it is about 15 years old. last year the oven wouldn't heat and smelled gas. That was repaired. Now, oven ignitor comes on but oven...


The ignitor is bad again,if it (ignitor) comes on but no flame/heat its the ignotor again, what would make the ignotor go bad so fast (usually last 10-15 years) is a problem with the oven burner, so now BOTH the ignitor and burner would need to be replaced,if it is 15 years old the ignitor is readily avaliable but the burner may not be

My jenn air single oven does not maintain temperatures, when set at 350 it shows 250. It is 15 years old, model #br is W131B

this is what you most likely need. Age, or the clean cycle, can cause them to start to malfunction.

It is inside the oven, and comes out/goes in pretty easily, but you have to be careful when removing the old one, not to loose the wires in the hole, because then you have to pull the unit out from the wall and remove the back in order to plug the new one in.

PCS 130 Keypad

Dacor probably won't cover anything. F1 is either the touch pad or ERC (clock). If it stops beeping when the touch pad is uplugged from the ERC then the touch pad is the problem if not it is the ERC. Call Dacor Customer service to get a price on the parts and to voice your displeasure.

Kenmore Gas wall oven flashes F7 Code

Hi Indy2008,
You can find my solution to the most common cause of the F7 problem at the following link:

I have helped over 1600 folks solve the F7 problem. The problem is usually with the touchpanel and not the ERC. My fix tells how to determine which part is faulty. Hopefully you will not need to purchase a new touchpanel, however, if you do, an internet search will lead you to lower cost sources.

Please let me know if my fix works for you. You can email me at:
