Hello,
The error code's F3&F4 are codes that mean their is a problem with the oven tempature sensor and that sensor is uncappable of telling the control board what the temp. is in the oven. This is what the sensor looks like,Service Code F-3 - oldtech2332_20.jpgTo check the sensor,unplug it and place meter leads into the white plastic plug at the end and check for between 1060-1100 ohms of resistiance when its good.

The F3 error code means that the sensor is shorted so if it indeed is shorted the meter reading will show ZERO ohms resistiance instead of the 1060-1100 of a good one.

The F4 error code is for sensor that has a open circuit,so instead of the 1060-1100 of a good it the display on the meter will show infinate resistiance ( the meter display will not change)

If on either the F3/F4 error code if at room tempature when checking the oven sensor if the display shows anything other that 1060-1100 ohms the sensor is going to be the problem and needs to be replaced.

I have a Kenmore 66575014101 oven I get F3 fault code but I replaced the Temperature sensor and it still gives the F3 fault code


I found this on line don't know if it will help but it might send you in the right direction for testing to determine if it's worth repairing-- sorry
Shortly after a series of power failures I started receiving this error code. Looked up it online and did some extensive research. Everything pointed to a faulty sensor so I purchased a new sensor and installed it today. It didnt help, and testing my old sensor I determined it was also working. In the service manual it stated to do the following corrective action for the F3 - E0/E1/E2/E3 error codes:

Quote: 1. Measure sensor value (between connector pins) between 1000 ? @ 32° F and 2697 ? @ 900° F (room temperature approx. = 1080 ? ). If measurement does not correlate to real temperature, disconnect power, replace sensor and refer to steps 3-5. Also measure from sensor connector to sensor casing for possible short.

2. Trace wires and connectors to sensor, from control, then from sensor back to control. If all connections made and no wire damage, refer to step 3.

3. Disconnect power for longer than 30 seconds

4. Re-apply power and press BAKE and START/ENTER. Observe for longer than 1 minute.

5. If failure remains, disconnect power, replace control, then go back to step 4. I also tested the resistance of the sensors control panel wire harness connector and they are correct. Next step outlined in the service manual is to replace the control board. Sears has the control panel in stock for $177.47. This to me is not worth it over the cost of a whole new oven. Are there any fuses or anything else that could easily or cheaply be replaced before throwing out the oven. Thankyou very much in advance for your time!

We have a Kenmore electric range mod. C970-440732. We have 5b or 56 error code on each element display control and 5ab error code on temp display on the the control panel. Nothing work except the clock. ...


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

I am going to assume it a F5 error code, which means your have a oven control failure. and may need replacement. electronic oven control (also called EOC or clock).

I suggest you contact a service company.

Amana gas stove acf3325ac f2 code


HI The range timer is usually located in the control panel on top of the range. If you suspect the timer is faulty, don't try to fix it yourself. Remove it and take it to a professional service person for testing. Here's how to remove the timer:

Step 1: Remove the back service panel to the control panel and release the spring clips that hold it in position, or remove the retaining screws.

Step 2: Push the timer forward to release it.

Step 3: Remove the electrical lead wires from the timer housing. If, when disassembling the timer, you notice that the electrical wire terminals look burned, remove these leads and buff the leads and the terminal points with fine steel wool. Burned and/or dirty terminals can cause the timer to malfunction, but a good cleaning can solve this problem.

Step 4: Replace the old timer or install a new one of the same size and type, if this is necessary. Connect the new timer the same way the old one was connected.
PLEASE RATE IT............................
