The f3 error code keeps appearing every time the oven is on for a prolonged period. I took the temperature sensor out. How do I check the resistance?
Answer Hello BG. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. It should ohm out around 1100 ohms at room temperature. Hope this helps.

Temperature in both ovens stays below set point. Preheat gets close to set temp then temp falls off 30 to 60 degrees below set point. Problem is with both ovens, but the upper oven temp diff is greater. I pulled the upper temp probe and it read 1087 ohms at room temp. any suggestions? Thanks.
You will want to access the control board and check the resistance of both of the oven sensors for the ovens. This reading will give you an idea of whether the wires for the oven sensors may be bad and causing loss of resistance. If the resistance checks ok at this point then you will want to replace the oven control board as it is not reading the resistances for the ovens properly.
Frigidaire PLES389ECB stove with Err Code F30. Replaced temperature sensor but did not help. What's next?
Answer Shoji, The next step is to remove power to the range and access the clock, disconnect the connector with the two purple wires and check across the two pins with a meter, the resistance should be the same as when you test the resistance of the temp probe. then check each pin to chassis ground, that should have a "open" circuit. If the tests and resistances are correct, then you'll need to replace the ERC/Clock
316418735. "F30 Open RTD sensor probe/ wiring problem. Note: EOC may initially display an "F10", thinking a runaway condition exists.
- Check wiring in probe circuit for possible open condition. - Check RTD resistance at room temperature (compare to probe resistance chart). If resistance does not match the chart, replace the RTD sensor probe. - Let the oven cool down and restart the function.- If the problem persists, replace the EOC."
