Question about Kenmore 91112 / 91114 / 91117 Electric Kitchen Range
My Sears Kenmore Elite oven fried out on Thanksgiving Day. The Sears technician told us we needed an EOC. We weighed our options--new stove or EOC--bought the EOC and installed it with the power off. We swapped out the wires from the old EOC to the new EOC. After we put the power back on we still have the same problem. The burners work, the oven doesn't. Still flashed F30. Is there a reset button? Some other fix? Please help. This model is 790.46609500.
The F30 error code indicates that the electronic oven control board detects an "open" oven temperature sensor probe circuit.
This is usually caused by a failed oven temperature sensor probe.
Replacing this component will likely fix your problem.
You can order this part from www.searspartsdirect.com website.
If you replace this part yourself, be sure that you unplug the range to disconnect electrical power before accessing this component.
On some models, you can replace the probe by removing the screws that mount this component to the inside back wall of the oven.
Carefully pull the probe inside the oven cavity until you encounter the wire harness disconnect plug.
Unplug the sensor and replace it with the new one. Mount the new probe on the back wall of the oven.
On some models, you have to remove the lower back oven panel to access the sensor probe.
If you replace the probe and still have this problem, you will need to unplug the range and measure the resistance through the violet wires that plug into the control board (this is where the sensor probe circuit is connected to the control board).
If the resistance through the oven temperature sensor probe circuit is normal (about 1100 ohms at room temperature) then the electronic oven control board will need to be replaced.
