Hi, My oven is giving me 2 errors I think.. 1 "meat probe shorted" 2 error code" F3 E2". my first question can both error codes be 1 problem? second question if I locate my meat probe connection and disconnect it from the top should that fix it or does i need to be replaced? 3rd question maybe my main board burned out? and I need to change that and not the actual meat Probe connection? Thanks in advance. Brian.

ANSWER Hello Brian, You can test the meat probe sensor and it should read approximately 59,000 ohms at room temp. Insert meat probe into meat probe jack located inside the oven cavity prior to reading resistance. You will need to visually inspect the P3 connector on the power board and the indicated temp sensor and make sure that the wires are not cut or pinched. Unplug P3 connector and check resistance of the meat probe sensor. Measure any of the P3 connector pins to chassis and value should read open. If it doesnt then replace sensor harness. If the sensor does not meet ohm reading then replace sensor harness. If the requirements still not met then replace probe jack and if still not working then replace the control board. You cannot disconnect the meat probe connection it should be replaced.You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
