Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Just purchased a Tappan TEF326FB and oven will not work. Get an error code F30 whenever press Broil or Bake buttons. top elements, clock, timer all work ok. followed manual instructions but can not get past the error code. Took stove back but wonder what the error code means. No phone 3 I called per instructions would tell me; the local warranty folks would not come out until late next week. what is error code F30?

After much effort, and thanks to ABSOLUTELY NO HELP from Lowe's (where I bought this range) OR any of the contact numbers their 1-800-# referred me to (ie. SEARS Appliance repair in Californina, Chicago, etc.) or the the local Warranty repair service here (where we were finally referred to - they were "too" busy" to come look at it until 7 days later on June 25),

I managed to find out that the "F30" error code meant an "Open probe connection". and to "check resistance at room temp & compare to RTD Sensor resistance chart. If resistance does not match the RTD chart replace RTD Sensor Probe. Chck Sensor wiring harness between EOC & Sensor Probe connection". I had no way to troubleshoot all of this or even to know where to look for the RTD probe or the wiring harness hookup. By the time I was able to find out what the error code mean't, I had taken the range back to Lowes where they tried to tell me that they shouldn't take it back because I had bought it a week earlier - even though It sat in the box and was not installed until 7 days after purchased. They finally took it back.
I promptly went to another appliance dealer (not Lowes or Sears) and bought a similar range which worked fine upon hookup. Too much hassle dealing with these folks.

Why does only broil come on when i push the bake button?


Bake and broil elements can be tested with an ohm meter for continuity. There is a relay in control / clock for both bake and broil elements. If elements test good, then those relays need to be tested for voltage.

Frigidaire wall oven CPEB30S8CC2 lower element does not work


We have a Frigidaire CPE30S8CC2 with the bottom bake element not working. We tried to replace it with no luck. The old element does not look burnt out at all. The timer, clock and broil all work just fine. The bake button works and you can set the temp. it just doesn't actually heat up at all. There are no knobs on the controls for any cook top. it is all on a circuit board for overn only. help?

The oven will not light on my Whirlpool gas oven Mod SF368LEPQ 2. The stove top burners still light.


Sounds like you need an bake element ignitor if the bake doesn't work but if the broil also doesn't work, it could be the electronic clock/timer control. the part number for the bake ignitor is 8054129 .Best off to call a reliable service company such as Sears.

TAPPAN gas range model 30-3991-00/03 oven won't work.


the button your holding is the switch that tells the board that the consumer whats to bake.so if holding the switch causes that message to work[or oven to heat] and letting go of that button ,then no work .its that button ,but its all part of the board .just that part of its funktion is broken.,if it was lets say your oven ignitor or oven gas safty valve ,the board/oven control[the one with the button]would continue to try after you have selected bake [pushed button]or would give error code.hope that helps you. God bless you , tom
