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.

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

Hello,
Try turning it off at the breaker. It is way easier than pulling it out and unplugging it. Also, leave it powered off for at least 7 to 10 minutes. This sometimes resets the control board and stops the beeping. If the beeping starts up again you may need a new control board. At this point it is a good idea to call in a pro. Good Luck

What is error code F10 on model #790 electric range?


Tiger.......I have a Kenmore Model 790 as well, and am getting the F10 Error code. It says in the manual that it is either the RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) or the EOC (Electronic Oven Control), but I am trying to find troubleshooting tips myself, as I do not want to pay $130 for a tech to come to my house. I know you can press the oven (off) button to stop the beeping momentarily, but the manual also says that the oven may need to be reprogrammed.....which is what I'm trying to find how to do. Sorry I couldn't give you a quick fix solution, but I'm am still searching.
