Unless you have experience with changing out control boards or oven sensors it might be a good idea to hire a professional. F3 codes could turn into more than a sensor and then you have an over all apart and costing more than you expect. However knowing what is the fault code is important to having a starting point to talk to a appliance tech.

I found this suggested "fix" that might help you repair your microwave: http://www.ehow.com/list_7281796_kenmore-elite-microwave-error-codes.html
However, I have found that replacing the circuit board on a microwave frequently costs more then replacing the device itself. Good luck!
