I have an F3E3 code and Meat probe sensor flashing. I read in this info to replace the heat sensor W10131825. Still has that and same code. Looks like that wire goes to the circuit board. Circuit board has a film on the under side like salt residue? Dosent wipe off. Well what do you think?
ANSWER Hello Don. Here are the instructions from the manufacture. Hope this helps.
A. Unplug range or disconnect power.
B. Open the console and make sure the indicated temperature sensor is plugged in. If it is not, plug it in to the connector and go to step I.
If it is plugged in, go to step C.
C. Check connector P2 on the appliance manager. Make sure it is plugged in and fully seated. If it is not, make the proper connection and go to step I. If it is already properly connected, go to step D.
D. Visually inspect the wires between P2 on the appliance manager and the indicated temperature sensor. Make sure the wires are not cut or pinched. If the wires appear to be intact, unplug the P2 connector on the appliance manager. Go to step E.
E. Measure indicated temperature sensor resistance value (measure between appropriate P2 connector pins). For the following sensors, the resistance value should read: Main Oven Sensor Between 931 and 2869 O. (Approx. 1080 O at room temp.) Lower Oven Sensor Between 931 and 2869 O. (Approx. 1080 O at room temp.) Warm Drawer Sensor Between 1,500 and 319,000 O. (Approx. 119,420 O at room temp.) Meat Probe Sensor Between 1,300 and 103,000 O. (Approx. 59,000 O at room temp.) (Insert meat probe into meat probe jack located inside the oven cavity prior to reading resistance.)
Measure any P2 connector pin to chassis. Resistance value should read “open”. If it does not, replace sensor harness. Repeat step E.
If the indicated temperature sensor does not meet these requirements, go to step F. If the temperature sensor does meet the requirements, go to step I.
F. For MAIN, LOWER and WARM DRAWER sensors: Replace appropriate temperature sensor. Repeat step E. If the requirements are not met, replace sensor harness. Repeat step E. If the requirements are still not met, go to step G. For MEAT PROBE sensor: Replace meat probe sensor. Repeat step E. If the requirements are not met, replace sensor harness. Repeat step E. If the requirements are still not met, replace the meat probe jack. Repeat step E. If the meat probe sensor is still not meeting the requirements, go to step G.
G. Replace the appliance manager. Ensure all connectors are properly seated.
H. Ensure all wiring connections are made.
I. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
J. Plug in range or reconnect power.
K. Observe for longer than 1 minute.
L. Initiate a bake cycle. Let the cycle run at least 1 minute. If no error returns, cancel the cycle. The problem has been repaired.
If the error occurs again, restart the troubleshooting procedure at step A.
