The jack that the probe plugs into is faulty. There is an internal switch in the plug thats not making contact to tell the unit that the probe isn't installed. Either take it apart and wirenut the two together for the internal switch or replace the plug.

How to calibrate kenmore meat probe? it says 170degrees when plugged in cool.

170 degrees is likely the minimum it can read. put a container of water in the oven, put the probe in the water, and set the oven for 250 degrees. Watch the probe, and see what temperature it shows when the water boils. Depending on your altitude, it should be 212 or a little less.

Our KitchenAid Electric Range display panel keeps indicating to set probe temp (and beeps every time) when probe is not even plugged in oven. When placing the probe in the oven jack it feels very loose. ...


This means a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Keep getting a message that says 'remove probe' but we don't have a probe in. Hit 'cancel' and tried reducing the temp on the oven when this message came up ('remove probe'). I hit 'bake' and tried to...

You might want to try and use a q-tip and some rubbing alchohol and try to clean the inside of the probe connector in the oven. Some liquids or something might be in it causing the control board to think the probe is connected. Make sure to do this procedure with the range unplugged. Then wait about 20 minutes before plugging the range back in. Hopefully that will stop the issue. If not could be a control board problem.

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...

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

Stove will not work keep saying f3 lonf beep will not turn on

"F3" indicates an oven temperature problem on Jenn-Air models. This is usually caused by a bad oven temperature probe. It will be mounted on the back of the oven wall (usually in the upper right or upper left corner). To check the probe, unplug the range and remove the back panel. There will be two heat insulated wires coming from the oven probe behind the oven. A resistance reading at room temperature across these wires should be around 1100-1200 ohms if the probe is good. If the reading is too low (shorted) or too high (open), replace it. However, I would take a good look at the interconnecting wiring FIRST. If you have a connector plug on the oven probe, often the plug pins will oxidize and not make good contact. This gives false readings and leads to error codes. Some manufacturer's recommended cutting the connector plug off completely and hardwiring the leads together by using heat resistant ceramic wire lugs. These can be purchased at most hardware stores. A new oven probe costs about $43 and can be found on line at several appliance parts websites. I found it at (item #1364). Just type your model number in the search menu and a pictorial part index will be provided. I hope this helps you

Stove controls beeping and flashing "Probe"

Most likely oven sensor / probe is the problem. It can be tested with an ohm meter. Not sure about your model, but most should read around 1100 ohms at room temperature. If there's a tech sheet somewhere on your unit, it should tell you.
