Ok. an F3 means that you have a bad sensor. If this is a range, you need to pull it out and access the sensor plug in the back and then unscrew it from inside the oven. If this is a built in unit, you can unscrew the sensor from the inside and pull the wire through and unplug/replace from there. Without a model number, you will need to bring the sensor to a local parts supply store to match it up.

- PLEASE rate my service before you leave today. Since we are on the honor system, Just Answer will only credit me for my time if you rate me positively. By giving me a rating of 4 or 5 stars at the TOP RIGHT of your screen I will provide free follow up questions for this appliance after this session. I am not always online, but answer questions as soon as I see them. Thank you.
