I get an F-3 and F-5 codes for the stove. I assume its the oven temperature sensor. Is that the snap disc switch on top? The fan will come on occasionally. I checked for shorts, but I don't know if the relay on the control board could acting up. Also, F-5 says replace the clock. Is that the display board? Help! Thanks

ANSWER Hello Kevin, This sounds like you will need to change the temperature sensor 12001656 and the ERC. This is of course a preliminary diagnosis based on the initial fault codes. No parts should ever be ordered until all electrical connections have been dis-connected and reconnected one at a time. Of course the reason for this is the fact that many failures are caused by poor electrical connections. The fault codes are listed by the manufacturer as follows: F3--Open oven temperature sensor. Replace oven temperature sensor. F5--Supervisory relay enable open(cook mode). Replace electronic range control(ERC). The clock is the part with the display 71002331
