Default frigidaire/electrolux stove f3 wont clear
Model Number: ples389ccb   Brand: Electrolux   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I was constantly getting an f3 error code on the stove. When I checked on your website, it said the temperature sensor could be bad. I replaced it and the very first try with the stove was a success. Stayed on for an hour plus at 400. The next try and every other try since then has the oven on any temperature for about 20 minutes and it goes back to F3. The voltage to the sensor is correct but it keeps doing it. Tried shutting power off and resetting to no avail. Is there more to this or what ? HELP my wife is going to kill me soon.

Here are your parts

Here is a wiring diagram.
http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodin.../318045064.pdf

First I would check that the new sensor is OK. Should be about 100 ohms at room temperature. Always a possibility that you have a bad replacement. This would be a long shot.

You will see that there is a thermal circuit breaker (item F219 in the Body Parts section) in the sensor circuit.
Unplug the unit and check it with a meter. Use the most sensitive meter scale. Also short the leads together before starting your measurement so you know if there is any zero offset in the meter.
It should be 0 ohms.

Check the connectors in the oven sensor circuit, that they are clean, properly connected and crimped.

If all the above are OK then odds are that the problem is on the control board.

Check the connector on the board for a cold solder joint. Often a cold join will be a duller silver color and/or have pin holes.
Gently wiggle the connector while watching it's solder side, to see if the legs move in the solder.
Check for any hairline cracks across the tracks on the board that go to the oven sensor.

If all OK then the problem is most likely an electronic fault on the board.
