    The sensor "probe" is inside the oven, usually on the back wall. Mine is at the top left hand corner. It's held by 2 screws. MAKE SURE POWER IS DISCONNECTED FROM STOVE. Remove back access panel to get to the wiring. You can see the back of the sensor and it has 2 wires coming out of it and a 2 pin plastic connector. This can be disconnected and you can measure the resistance. Normally around 1,100 ohms for a good one. Good luck!

Kenmore' F2 or F3 usually points to an open oven temperature sensor. If that is the problem, it's not an expensive repair.

    I don't know where your older model Kenmore sensor is but mine is top left back wall inside oven. Easy to see and should be a couple of screws holding it. If you remove the access panel at the back of the stove, you can see the sensor from the back. follow the wires coming out of it and there should be a 2 pin plastic type connector that can be discvonnected. If your man has a multimeter, he can measure the resistance of the sensor element. Make sure that before you do all that work that the main power wire is disconnected. The resistance measurement is made with no power applied. BE SAFE!

It sounds like the module is momentarily losing power when the bake relay clicks off. Does it do the same thing when you use broil?
Post back with the complete model number and I will try to find the wiring diagram for it and we will walk through checking it.
Thanks/Mike

SOURCE: F2 and F3 code appearing along with annoying beeping

i think f3 error code has something to do with the temp probe maybe it is the problem. the temp probe is located if you open the door directly in the back wall. it looks like a prong. should read 1100ohms the f2 error code though usually has something to do with the keypad i would check all the connections maybe they are loose.

F3 f4 gaas oven when preheated these numbers appear it beeps and shuts off


Hi, replace the oven temperature sensor if "F2," "F3" or "F4" is displayed. "F2" indicates the oven temperature is too hot and the oven temperature sensor is suspect. "F3" or "F4" indicates the oven temperature sensor or shorted or open.

F-3 signal on Jenn-Air SVE47600, grill-range, self-cleaning convection oven


The F3 means there is something wrong in the sensor circuit, sensor/wiring/clock. F3 Problem: Shorted or open oven temperature sensor (RTD): Solution: Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.

Amana Self-cleaning Oven flashes F2 and F3 and beeps. It doesn't get real hot. Although it does heat up not the appropriate temperature.


Hi, F2 error code on the Amana Oven means "Oven too hot" You have to replace Oven temperature sensor to fix it.
F3 error code means "Open or shorted oven temperature sensor". Yo also have to replace Oven temperature sensor to fix it.

Summarily, both code has to do with the temperature sensor which you need to replace...

When I turn the GE oven on sometimes it works fine other times it will shut off. When it shuts off it will give the F2 or F3 error sign.Can you please tell me what this means? Thanks


Hi, the F2 Error code means the oven has detected an excess temperature condition. Most often this is due to a bad temperature sensor - the sensor costs about $75 from an online repair site.
The "F3" error code means the oven sensor is open, I suggest you flip breaker off then back, on Re check for error, if OK fine if not turn back off and fix or call for service man...

Oven shuts off after being on for short period of time and f3 or f2 code appears. also the display sometimes goes off and on model # che9830bcb ser # 24430972qw


F3 error code usually means a faulty oven temperature sensor, a fairly easy part to replace.

However, with an intermittent display problem as well this could mean a bad connection or relay in the oven control unit, which a bit more complicated.
