I posted some information about that F3 code in the first image below. It can indicate that the control detects an "open" or "shorted" sensor probe. Since you already tested the sensor probe and it is okay, you could have a problem with the wiring harness or the electronic control board. The wiring diagram in the second image shows the sensor circuit traced in purple. You can unplug the range and access the electronic control board in the console by removing the back panel behind that console. Unplug the connector with the sensor circuit wires. With the sensor probe connected in that circuit, measure the resistance through the entire sensor circuit. You should measure the same resistance (around 1100 ohms) that you measure directly at the sensor probe. If the resistance is way off, then you will need to examine the sensor wiring harness. The most vulnerable section of the harness is the disconnect plug at the sensor. You may need to eliminate that plug and connect the wires using ceramic wire nuts.

If the resistance through that sensor circuit is okay, then you will need to replace the electronic oven control board to fix that problem.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

 

If the oven temperature sensor measured approximately 1100 Ohms, reconnect the sensor and then access the back of the electronic oven control/clock assembly. Disconnect the power cord before removing the panel from behind the control panel. Disconnect the 15 pin connector from the control board. Recheck the Ohm resistance across the two (2) violet wires. If the Ohm resistance measures the same as it did directly across the oven temperature sensor leads, the oven control/clock will need to be replaced.

 

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

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

 

The "F3" fault code indicates a faulty oven temperature sensor probe. The temperature sensor probe is located inside the oven in the upper left or upper right rear corner. It can be removed and disconnected and tested with an Ohm meter. At room temperature the Ohm resistance should be approximately 1100 Ohms.

 

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