Question about Kenmore 79012 / 79014 / 79019 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Our kenmore 790 built in oven keeps flashing an F30 code after we turn off the oven, or sometimes when the oven is on, it shuts off and then beeps the F30. I keep hearing it is the RTD probe, but where is it and how do you replace it?

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.

I continue to get code F11 on my Kenmore Elite Gas Range Oven and therefore, I am unable to unlock / open my oven door. I have pressed and held down the STOP button as well as the oven light button.


Your model number should be much longer than 790 30 Open drawers and doors to look for the whole model number around the frame.

With the whole model number you can get more information at Sears Parts Direct. There are parts diagrams and user manuals and you can order parts.
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/



This site gives instructions for repairing F11 and recommends checking the temperature probe and tells how to do it.

Also
Sometimes shutting off the circuit breaker that the range or oven is connected to for 30 seconds will clear the fault, error or function code.

Also
F3 or F30 means that there may be a problem with the oven sensor.
Your oven sensor may need to be replaced.

Kenmore model #790-9642440A and getting a F30 alert.


The F30 error code will flash when the dispenser motor cannot be driven to its proper position.
* It could have a mechanical failure in the linkage between the dispenser motor and the top of the dispenser.
* Loose wire connection between the machine control board and the dispenser motor
* Failed dispenser motor

Oven doesn't work. Display F30 code. Gas Range model: 790-78579405. First time usage for oven. All stove burners does work. Some blogs mentioned "reset" red buttom but couldn't find it from the back metal...


Part of the model number 790 says, that the range is made by Fridgidaire. F30 means the sensor is bad and/or main board. There is no red button. You can find you part here: www3.sears.com
