Default F3 error code, even after replacing thermal sensor
Model Number: KEDC205BWH2   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Been getting F3 error code on my KitchenAid range model # KEDC205BWH2, even after replacing thermal sensor. Wondering if there is a thermal fuse that needs replacing on this model. Cannot seem to locate on any of the diagrams or parts lists. I replaced the bake element a few years back, but it doesn't seem to look any worse for wear. Currently, the oven heats up to a little over 200 degrees before error code shuts it down... and the bake element does not appear to get redhot at any time. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated...

Here are your parts
Parts for Whirlpool KEDC205BWH2 Range - AppliancePartsPros.com

See the attachment for the tech sheet.

I also cannot see a fuse in the oven sensor circuit.

They have a fault code for a shorted sensor (F4) so I am assuming that F3 is an open sensor.

Check for a cold solder joint or a cracked copper trail on the control board.
Cold solder joints are often a duller gray/silver and/or have pin holes.
Also gently wiggle the probe connection while watching the solder side to see if the connector's leg/s move in the solder.
A magnifying glass helps with the above inspection.

If you cannot find anything then odds are that the control board is toast.
