F3 on electric range
by Manage My Life 
December 27th, 2012

Thank you for submitting your question. Priscilla has provided good information. The F3 error code on this range indicates that the oven clock control board detects a problem with the oven sensor temperature probe circuit. If you have an ohms/volt meter you can test the continuity on the oven sensor temperature probe (WB21X5301). You should measure around 1100 ohms through that sensor at room temperature. If the sensor doesn't measure the correct ohms, then replace it. If it does, then you'll need to replace the main control board (WB27T10174). You can order parts from our

Sears Parts Direct

web site. I hope this information helps. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance with this repair. If you do not feel comfortable performing test or repairing this problem yourself, I recommend scheduling for service. You can schedule for service online with our

What could cause F3 to appear on the display of my Kenmore electric range?
by Manage My Life 
January 25th, 2008

I have a Kenmore electric range, serial #2R248138Q, Model #911.9352590.

The question below answers your question. The model number is different, but the diagnosis is the same. The resistance of the oven temperature sensor should be around 1100 ohms at 70 degrees. The resistance increases as temperature increases. If the reading is within 100 ohms of 1100, the sensor is good.

What does the F3 error mean on my Kenmore electric range?

This is an issue you can fix yourself. The F3 indicates the oven sensor is bad. You can test the oven sensor. Begin by disconnecting the power to the range and removing the rear panel covering the ERC. Remove the back panel from the range and follow the oven sensor wires up to the control. Disconnect the plug on the ERC containing the oven sensor wires and read the resistance of the oven sensor. It should read between 1000-1200 ohms.

If the oven sensor tests within this range the ERC is defective. If it tests out of the range disconnect the wires from the oven sensor and measure the resistance of the oven sensor. If it tests out of the range the oven sensor is defective. If it tests within the range the harness between the ERC and the oven sensor is defective.

Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service

. The oven temperature sensor is located in the oven cavity in the upper left rear corner or the rear upper right corner. The oven temperature sensor probe can be removed and disconnected from inside the oven cavity and tested with an Ohm meter. Pull the sensor into the oven approximately 10 inches for access to the quick disconnect. The oven sensor should have a resistance measurement of approximately 1100 ohms at room temperature. If the oven sensor does not have approximate resistance of 1100 ohms, replace the

sensor

If the sensor ohms at approximately 1100 ohms then you will need to reconnect it and then make the same test up at the control board by disconnecting the sensor harness plug and rechecking the resistance across the two sensor wire leads. If it measures approximately 1100 ohms there, replace the

control board

What does F3 mean on a Kenmore electric range model number 790.95682301?
by Manage My Life 
May 16th, 2009

The F3 indicates that the electronic oven control board senses an "open" or "short" oven temperature sensor probe circuit. This can be caused by a failed oven temperature sensor, a wiring failure or a defective electronic control board. I recommend

unplugging the range

and checking the resistance through the sensor circuit. The temperature probe is connected to the electronic oven control board through the violet wires on pins 12 and 13 of the P5 plug as shown in the first image below. Unplug this connector (with the range unplugged) and measure the resistance through the violet wires with a volt/ohm meter. The normal resistance of this circuit is shown in the second image below. The circuit should measure about 1100 ohms at room temperature. It will likely measure near zero ohms (short) or infinite resistance (open). If it measures the normal resistance, the electronic board will need to be replaced. If the circuit measures open or short, the resistance will need to be checked directly at the temperature sensor probe. If the probe is bad, it will need to be replaced. If the probe is okay, then the wiring harness will need to be replaced.

You can order parts from the

Sears PartsDirect

website.

If you are not completely confident in your technical ability to safely access and check these components, I recommend calling a service technician to repair the range.

What does an F3 error on my Kenmore electric range mean?
by Manage My Life 
April 9th, 2009
Fred M
Without a model number I can't be specific but an F3 error most likely means the oven has a shorted oven temperature probe.

If you submit another question with a model number I may be able to assist you in checking this yourself if you have access to a volt/ohm meter.

What is an E3 F3 error code in my Kenmore electric range?
by Manage My Life 
February 8th, 2010
Manage My Life
The F3 E3 means the EOC (Electronic Oven Control) senses an over temperature condition. The tech sheet advises us to check the oven temperature sensor resistance (See images below). Begin by disconnecting the power to the range and removing the rear panel covering the EOC. Remove the lower panel from the range and follow the oven sensor wires up to the control. Disconnect the plug on the EOC containing the oven sensor wires and read the resistance of the oven sensor. It should read between 1000-1200 ohms.

If the oven sensor tests within this range the ERC is defective. If it tests out of the range disconnect the wires from the oven sensor and measure the resistance of the oven sensor. If it tests out of the range the oven sensor is defective. If it tests within the range the harness between the ERC and the oven sensor is defective.

kenmore range f3 code

August 29th, 2013
Ron H
Thanks for contacting mange my life about your range/oven model 911.46555691; sorry you are having a problem with this, I will be glad to assist you.

Based on your testing of the sensor and related wiring I would agree that the control should be replaced.

Electronic Control

I do see that the original control is not available and has been substituted. I also see that this replacement can only be ordered by a technician. You would have to discuss with the parts department for details.

Here is a link to

9117398710 Kenmore Range - F3 Error
by Ethan Jarrell 
May 21st, 2012
Joey S
Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The "F3" fault code indicates an open oven temperature sensor or sensor circuit. The oven sensor is most likely faulty and will need to be replaced. If the fault code recurs after replacing the oven sensor, the electronic oven control is likely faulty.

The oven temperature sensor can be disconnected and tested for resistance with an Ohm meter.

The electronic oven control is $338.49 which in my opinion is too much to invest in this older oven. I would consider replacing the oven.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
