Have error code E0 -F3- is this the code for temp sensor error?
Answer Hello Tom. Oven sensor
opened. 1. Measure sensor value (between connector pins) between 1000 ? @ 32° F (0° C)
and 2697 ? @ 900° F (482° C) (approximately 1080 ? @ room temperature). If
measurement does not correlate to real temperature, disconnect power,
replace sensor and refer to steps 3-5. Also measure from sensor connector to
sensor casing for possible short.
2. Trace wires and connectors to sensor, from control, then from sensor back to
control. If all connections made and no wire damage, refer to step 3.
3. Disconnect power for longer than 30 seconds.
4. Reapply power and observe for longer than 1 minute.
5. If failure remains, disconnect power, replace control, then go back to step 4.
When oven is on shutoff will not stay at set temperture, have to keep resetting.

You will want to check the oven sensor on the unit to ensure that there is 1090 ohms of resistance. If there is not then the oven sensor is faulty and would need to be replaced.
A couple of years ago I asked for help and was told my control panel needed to be replaced. I replaced it and the oven has been working beautifully until recently. Now even though it says it's on and heating it's not igniting. It started with not igniting until the countdown reached 8 minutes or so and the other day there was a minute left and it hadn't ignited. The pilot light is lit as I can see a flame.
My Question is ---- is the igniter bad or does it need cleaning? How do you go about cleaning it? and is changing it something I can do myself?
Thanks for you time. Deb
Answer Deb, You are most likely seeing the igniter glowing, you don't have a pilot light on your range. The igniter 3186491 has to glow "white"
hot and produce a 3.2 to 3.6 amp draw on the ignition system, in order to open the safety valve and allow the bake burner to ignite. A weak igniter can glow (orange in color) but not produce the amperage. There is no need to "clean" igniter, there is no process for that. If you have some basic tools and some basic skills you should be able to replace the igniter yourself. Remove power to the range, remove the oven door, and racks, remove the oven bottom panel(floor) then remove the flame spreader from the burner. Remove the two mounting screws, disconnect the wires from the cabinet harness and reverse the procedure, and test the oven for ignition and heat.
Oven is not working. checked oven sensor with ohm meter. reads 1952 at room temp. is it a bad sensor?
Answer Terry, Yes, at room temperature the sensor resistance should be 1050-1100 ohms. At 1952 ohms, the control "thinks" the oven temperature is 500 dgrs.F. replace the sensor 8053344.
