I have an Advantium wall based oven and recently started to get an F3 error.
I have tried cycling the power without good results.
I am not sure which parts need to be replaced to alleviate the F3 error. THe model number for the unit is SCB2001KSS. I have researched and found the following parts in the overall keypad unit: (CONTROLLER ASSY 68 WB07X10658 ) (PCB ASM - LED 1605 WB27X10395 ) (SELECTOR PCB 1610 WB27X10396 ) (LED DISPLAY 1600 WB27X10429 )
Could you recommend which part(s) need to be replaced to alleviate the F3 error.
Thanks in advance.

Mine just started doing this on Christmas day. I'll be calling the service center tomorrow.

Have had the same thing happen to mine after 6 months. Have been told by a local repair guy that the fault is with a $0.15 thermal resistor, and that this is a common problem with GE Advantiums. The resistor disables oven controls and therefore oven operation if temp is too high, but these resistors are apparently failing well below the designed range for the appliance. He said GE does not have a part number for that item, and said that the entire control pad assembly would have to be ordered and replaced if working through GE channels. Of course, this new assembly would also contain the faulty thermal resistor!
On some other boards, I've noted that the highest incidence of failure seems to be occuring at just beyond the 3-year period, or just beyond the GE extended warranty that some have purchased. _____________________________________________
