Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
Good morning. I can tell you the F3 is a failed temp sensor. (probe) thats an easy fix once the oven is open but getting the oven open isn't easy unfortunately, this sensor tells the control the oven temp and when they fail the control thinks the oven is still hot and wont open the lock until it thinks its cool again. you really cant push any buttons to make this unlock. the only way to get the door open at this point is to first try shutting the power off for 5 minutes and then turn it back on. If your lucky the door will then unlock, if not you will need to take a coat hanger and make a hook at the end , feed it in between the door and the oven and pull the latch over by hand. (this can be tough) your latch hook pulls to the left its number 22 on this diagram. if you get this open the sensor is sticking out of the back wall of the oven and is easy to replace. heres a link to order it. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Oven-Sensor/12001656/1364?modelNumber=SVD48600B?RCAID=1000065 if you cant get this unlocked call a tech to do it so you don't damage anything else. I hope this helps. thanks, Bryan.
OK, Thanks again.
