Hey there - hope someone can help.

 

My KitchenAid Superba Stove (model KRGC707LBS0) is throwing a code - and won't work.


The code is F3:E3

 

I checked this site first (of course), and tested two thermostats under the keypad (one worked with the test, one didn't). I also checked the thermocouple - it tested fine.

 

I replaced BOTH thermostats (ordered the wrong one first) but it's still giving that code ...

 

any experts have any thoughts? Was I going in the wrong direction?

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

 

Regards,

Kurt

f3 e3 registers as the oven is too hot.....this means  the probe is showing high resistance or your board is misreading it.  It may be the board but changing/testing probe is a lot cheaper and I've known probes to test fine but perform inaccurately.  Take the probe reading at the board. If you are getting a high resistance  like 3000 ohms then you may have a partially broken probe wire/harness.  


Appliantology is, however appliances are not, an exact science for I know there are a few refrigerators that actually hate me.

The simplest explanation is most likely the correct and least expensive one, unless it's your compressor or motherboard" Occam as an appliantologist

"When you have eliminated all the impossible, whatever remains, however implausible, must be the logic truth; unless it's your compressor or motherboard." Mr. Spock as an appliantologist

"I think, therefore I have no earthly idea why this thing is not working...I got nothin'...". Rumored to have been uttered by a frustrated Descartes while diagnosing his GE Profile.

F3E3 = Shorted sensor, always take reading from the control connection.
