Viking Oven Error Codes

Viking Oven Error Code F03

If your Viking oven is displaying the enigmatic F03 error code, fear not – we’re here to demystify the intricacies behind this signal. The F03 code specifically points to a sensor issue, indicating a potential hiccup either with the temperature sensor or the control board. Here’s a more detailed breakdown to guide you through the diagnosis and resolution process.

Understanding the F03 Error:

  1. Temperature Sensor Out of Range:

    The error may occur if the temperature sensor on your Viking oven is not within the expected range.

  2. Control Board Communication Failure:

    Alternatively, the F03 code could signify a breakdown in communication between the temperature sensor and the control board, with the latter potentially failing to read the sensor accurately.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Check Oven Sensor Resistance:

    • Use an ohmmeter to measure the resistance of the oven temperature sensor.
    • At room temperature, the sensor should ideally register around 1080 ohms.
    • If the sensor’s resistance is within this range, it suggests the sensor is functioning correctly.
  2. Inspect Sensor Wiring:

    • Examine the wiring connecting the temperature sensor to the control board.
    • Ensure there are no visible signs of damage, fraying, or disconnection.
    • Replace or repair any compromised wiring.
  3. Evaluate Control Board:

    • If the sensor checks out within the expected resistance range, the control board may be the culprit.
    • Consider consulting a professional technician to inspect and potentially replace the control board.
