I've taken the top cover off and can confirm that the main circuit board looks ok.

One moment while I get some information for you!

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 2 months ago.

F3 stands for a faulty oven sensor. Unplug the oven, then replace the sensor. Then it should be back to normal. The sensor is inside the oven upper left or right corner. When you pull on the sensor, you'll get to a male/female quick connector. When you unplug it, be careful not to lose the other end behind the oven wall or this simple repair won't be so simple anymore.

All I ask is please select the ***5 STAR RATING*** using the link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am credited through the site, tips are appreciated.

Ok thanks, ***** *****'ll require a new part? I saw a similar post that said about cutting the one end of resistors 2 and 3 on the circuit board in the bit labelled service. Then lift them clear and insulate, you wouldn't recommend this?
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 2 months ago.

no i do not recommend doing that
