F30 is a warning code indicating that the oven either has overheated or that the sensor may have activated the error code.

There is a sensor inside the oven that should have a resistance of about 1,100 Ohms at room temperature. If the resistance is out of range then you will need to replace the sensor.

If the resistance is within tolerances then the problem is the clock control board. Also check for any loose or bad connections.

Did the self cleaning. Now it has a F 3 code & door will not unlock.


  • Check warranty to make sure it has expired.
  • Disconnect power for 30 seconds and see if oven will reset the electrical lock.
The following link describe for Kenmore several procedures to disengage the electrical lock securing the door.

It is unfortunate that during the self cleaning cycle the stress levels at the elevated temperature premature failure appears to occur.
How to Clear the Oven Lock Mechanism on Kenmore Stove

The F3 error is most likely the temperature sensor that protrudes into the oven near the top usually on the left. Don't be confused there can be two probes that enter the oven. One is the over temp like not to exceed type of switching device and the other is the actual sensor that maintains the temperature at the set point.

There is a procedure to replace this sensor from inside the oven. I have had only limited success doing this repair in ovens from the front. Newer ovens are equipped with a plug that is easier. In all cases ensure that the plug is pushed through away from the oven wall. In older ovens I have had to pull the built in ovens to accomplish the work from the back to ensure a good connection using wire nuts... The sensor in the second photo does not have a plug so small wire nuts that will fit through the back of the oven are used.

I have a kenmore self cleaning oven.... How do I use that feature


DONT!
More problems will ensue.

Head over to the manufacture's website.

Typically - they have a SUPPORT section that you enter your full model number in, and you can download the manual for free.

Just use some easy off and do not use the self clean feature. Clean it the old fashioned way. Self clean ruins expensive electronics.

Whirlpool oven ''feature not available''


That happened to my fairly new Whirlpool double oven. But I remembeedr the power in the neighborhood had flickered earlier in the day. So I went to the circuit breaker and shutoff power to the oven for about 30 seconds and turned back on. Everything normal now. I just assumed the slight flicker in the power affected to programming.

Advise use of self clean feature on kenmore self clean oven 30''


If there is an up and down arrow on the control panel, you need to press the clean button first and then choose clean time with the up and down arrow. Be sure to remove the racks, if left in the oven they will be blackened by the extreme heat. Clean them separately with oven cleaner. Place them on newspaper and spray them.

Your thermal fuse or TOD mounted to the back of the oven went out during the self clean,it shuts off the power to the elements.

Self-clean turns off after 5 minutes with F2 error message


Hi MaryB,

F2 error code means that the oven temperature is too hot. You will have to replace relay board if faulty. Check and replace oven temperature sensor (RTD). If failure repeats, replace ERC (electronic range control or clock).For replacement part you may contact Sears at 1-800-252-1698; M-F 6:30 AM-10:30 PM - Sat 7:00 AM-9:30 PM - Sun 7:30 AM-9:30 PM - All times Central.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.
