You will need to replace the oven sensor, this is an open sensor that measures the temps inside the oven, this usually looks like a small pencil sticking out in either the top left or top right hand corner of the oven.

I don't think that's it because I was not using the oven at all I was boiling tea on the stove top and it began the beeping. How do i shut off the beeping are you saying I have to listen to this until a repair man can come out?

The F3 error code on your model is a bad oven sensor, Have you tried turning off the power to the unit for 5 minutes and see if it resets the computer on your unit...
