My gas range will periodically flash the F30 on the screen and shut the stove down. I have to unplug in order to reset the alarm. What does this code mean? How do I fix it? Thank

Hi jacksmdmat,
Your f30 problem may be a bad sensor circuit. It may have an open connection or just plain defective sensor. Check the connection between the clock and the sensor as well as disconnect and measure the resistance of the sensor - should be about 1090ohms at room temp (75F)

SOURCE: F2 Error on Whirlpool Dual Fuel Range

I was baking and the stove suddenly changed to Maxi Broil and then to ERR F2EO Stuck Key. I cannot seem to change it by start or off or even turning the unit off and then back on. Any suggestions? Thanks.

SOURCE: F30 error during cleaning cycle for Frigidaire

The problem seems related to the sensor switch. The immediate solution was such a simple fix, I couldn't believe it.

STEP one:
Turn power breaker OFF for the range. This is a step you shouldn't NEVER skip, or you could DIE.

STEP two:
Gently pull range out of the slide in area into the kitchen

STEP three:
Unscrew the metal back panel of the range.

STEP four:
Facing the back of the range, you should press the red button between two wire mounts until it clicks. Be careful, and try not to touch ANY wires when you do this.

STEP five:
Turn breaker back ON.

STEP five:
If you didn't unplug the stove, the oven should still be locked, but will unlock immediately when you hit the CLEAR/OFF button on the control panel on the fron of the range.

Keep in mind that this is only a TEMPORARY solution and would probably occur again the next time you clean the oven. Try replacing the sensor switch for a longer term solution. You can order one for less than $20. I will buy it from the website that includes the most comprehensive instructions for replacing the item for this range type. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Jenn air range model SCE30600B error code FC

replace the entire range: Jennair does not know how to design, make, or program electronics. It makes steel boxes that provide heat but electronics - that's not within their ability. Buy a Kenmore or a GE and your beeping problem will go away.

SOURCE: i have a f30 error

OK - here's a little tip that might save you a bundle of cash:

The Frigidaire glasstop slide-in Range model # PLES389ECH has a habit of triggering a F30 error, which according to the NEW table of error codes (, implies an issue with either the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) panel (located beneath the Control Panel Assembly), or the temperature probe itself (located within the main oven cavity, back wall, upper-left corner). However, a quick glance at page 12 of the Factory Parts Catalog's wiring diagram ( or shows two thermal breakers wired into the circuit as well.

To check the probe, disconnect power and either pull the probe from the cavity of the oven (two screws, and a disconnect plug) and measure resistance across the probe, or take the Control Panel Assembly off the front (remove 4 cooktop control knobs and 4 teflon mounting nuts) and measure resistance at the EOC P5 quick-disconnect plug (violet wires - see wiring diagram) should read approx. 1091 Ohms at room temperature per ApplianceAid's table. If you measured at the probe, an open (infinite resistance) or short (zero resistance) indicates a bad probe. Replace for about $40.00 (per

If you get an open or short by measuring at the P5 plug, the issue is either the probe OR the thermal breakers. Also called a Thermal Cutout Switch (item #141 on p.8 of your parts catalog), one of these buggers is located near the electronic control module for the right rear stovetop burner (#54A, follow the violet wires from EOC to locate it) - since you already have the Control Panel Assembly pulled, reach over and push the button on the breaker to reset it. This may have just solved your error code! For FREE!! If it doesn't reset, you may have to replace the breaker itself (around $16.00).

However, if you measured at the plug and get the appropriate resistance for the entire circuit it's likely that your breakers, probe and wiring harness (always check for disconnected wiring) are fine, and that the problem lies with the EOC itself. This pricey gizmo runs a little over $200. My sympathies.

Good luck! Feel free to mail me any contributions should you save yourself a $350+ service call. :)

Frigidaire gas stove, oven will not work. Shows F30 code

That is an error with the temperature sensor.
Unplug the unit or turn the circuit breaker off for 60 seconds.
Restore the power to the appliance by plugging it back in or turning the circuit breaker back on. If you still have the problem here is a link to order the replacement part and a video how to replace the part which is fairly easy to do.

Frigidaire stove door locked f30 error code

Hi - Typically error code F30 for Frigidaire range indicates an issue with the sensor probe or the wiring harness between sensor probe and EOC. Try resetting the unit and see if the error code will clear. You can either unplug the unit or flip the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn on the range. If issue continues, contact a professional to move forward accurately

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:

GE 30" Gas Freestanding Stove Model #JGB290MENBS. The control panel on top has gone out and cannot use oven. Can still use cook top. Is there a reset button. We have had this stove 6 months.

There is no reset button. First, unplug the range, and plug it back in after 5 minutes. That MAY reset the control, if not, the control will need to be replaced. If the range is less than a year old, it should be covered by the factory warranty (unless it was purchased a Sears store).

F30 ERR message on Frigidaire Professional Series Range

I am a tech and just had this happen to me, so I can feel your frustration. I have replaced the temp probe, erc, and still had the problem.
Open the back, with the unit unplugged. On the lower right hand side there is a relay, beside the relay there is a "safety T-stat" disconnect from the circuit by removing one wire and read for continuity. If none is detected, replace t-stat and voila... stove works. Much cheaper than erc and probe...

Installed new EOC for Sears Kenmore Elite 790 46609500 oven.

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 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.,wbwdqtgkkqdrrfgxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/ktrrwffdrxkddstsrtq/1/1303472/5961857/image45310img-or.jpg

Kenmore Elite slide in range F30 error

I had the same F30 error problem but fixed it. On my professional series Frigidaire, there are 2 resettable red button locations. I discovered that only one is in the rear of the oven. After going to the breaker box and shutting off the power, pull out the stove enough to work, unscrew the rear screws (I didn't unscrew all of them, just enough to work back there). The small red button is on a small black round piece with two purple wires feeding to it. That was not my problem. Mine was the other red button behind the control panel. Pull off all 4 knobs, unscrew by hand the large black rings that are underneath the knobs, pull out the whole panel. Look back and right (below where the right knobs were located) to find the 2nd red small button. Push to reset. Check this one first since it is easier to do.

Tappan Gas Range

Most likely has "ON PILOTS" As opposed to (electronic ignition/ Ignitors).. Change the stove to a more efficient model and being gas do "NOT" Do it yourself Period!.(Please)..Install should be tested and approved..
Call a local professional specialized in LP/Natural Gas Appliances. Flex lines on older Stoves tended to break down causing leaks as well as older construction codes where Black pipe feeds and shut-off valves break down after time. Sorry for the Negative info but Ive seen some Slum-lord homes in my days doing service calls.. Keep it shut off until you can get it fixed professionally..
