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

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 E1 F3 error code mean on my Kenmore Electric Range?

The E1-F3 error code is likely indicating a shorted Oven temperature sensor probe. The oven sensor probe will need to be tested with a volt/ohm meter.

To test the oven temperature sensor:

Unplug the range and remove the back panel.

Unplug the oven temperature sensor probe and measure the resistance. The oven sensor should have a resistance reading of approximately 1080 ohms at room temperature.

If the resistance measurement is way off, I recommend replacing the sensor. If you are not completely confident in your technical ability to safely check this sensor, then I recommend calling a technician to check this problem.

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.

If you require further assistance please resubmit question with details of the checks you have made. I will be looking forward to helping you again in the near future.

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.

If you do not feel comfortable performing this procedure, I highly recommend having a technician come out to diagnose and repair your appliance.
