SOURCE: Broiler Works/Oven Doesn't

Jrzy, even though you can see the bake igniter glowing, that doesn't mean it's good. Igniters actually get weak (unlike a light bulb that simply burns out). It's hooked up in series to a safety valve (the valve that allows main gas into the oven) which actually reads the amps flowing through the igniter. If the igniter is weak and the amps are too low, the valve won't open up. Replace your igniter and you'll be cookin' with gas again. Tip---> before you unscrew your old igniter, put a little liquid dish soap on the threads for lubrication. This'll ensure it comes out with no problems.

SOURCE: oven won't heat

I have EXACTLY the same problem, occured today 9/25/07. Model RBS305PDQ16. At least I know I am not crazy... You know when Ronald Regan was President the CIA analysts assured him that the Soviet Bloc was ready to crumble because the people were constatly complaining that "nothing seened to work anymore." ...must have included ovens...

SOURCE: broiler element not working

It's either the switch that supplys power to the broiler element or it's the element itself (probably the element itself). I'd go after that first as it's not that expensive.

It's not a thermostat because if it was, the bake element wouldn't work either. The broiler element is not supposed to come on except when in the broil mode or cleaning mode.

Trying to better define the problem....

Do you have any cuts, holes or "shorting" or tin-foil/aluminum around your bottom bake heat-element? If so, you may need to replace the baking Heat Element. (Ensure you do not use aluminum foil around your heat element to prevent your oven from getting dirty)

To replace your baking heat element, with power off; remove 2 screws securing the bake element. Slightly tug and pull towards you for about 3 inches or so and disconnect the connecting wires at each end. Then completely remove the heat element and install new in reverse manner. Whats' you're model number?

F3 code on Kenmore Oven Model 911 4558810


The F3 error code indicates that the EOC (Electronic Oven Control board) senses a problem with the oven temperature sensor. You could have a defective sensor, a failed EOC or a bad wiring connection between these 2 components.

Normally, a technician is needed to diagnose and repair this type of failure. The technician would unplug the range and access the EOC in the console. He would pull the 15-pin plug from the EOC and measure the resistance between pins 12 and 13 of the plug. This would check the temperature sensor and connecting wiring. The tech should measure about 11000 ohms at room temperature (75 degrees Fahrenheit).

If this reading is good, the EOC would be the failed component and would need to be replaced.

If the resistance reading of the sensor circuit is bad, the reading would be taken directly from the leads on the temperature sensor. If the resistance reading taken directly off the sensor is bad, then the temperature sensor has failed and would need to be replaced. Otherwise, the wire harness is the failed component.

If you have a volt/ohm meter and the technical expertise to safely access and test internal components of your range as described above, you may be able to diagnose and repair the range yourself.

Kenmore Elite c970-418091 wont work after self clean - Code f30


Here is a how it works post I{ wrote a little while back.:The oven temperature is regulated by a temperature sensor when placed in self clean the sensor is removed from the circuit and full power is applied to both the bake and broil elements causing an the temperature to exceed in some some models up to 1,000 F. I would recommend against using self clean for the simple fact that no oven cavity to this date has been designed to withstand that high of a temperature and therefore excess heat is passed upward resulting in damaged lock mechanisms, control boards, and other electronic components. With all that said you can try to cycle the controls by turning the breaker of the oven off for a few minutes the n turn it back on. It should then read PF which is normal. Press the cancel button and try it to see if it works. If not then you will need to replace the control board in the upper panel

Kenmore digital oven model 79095321303 temperature is wrong. Digital display on oven says 350 degrees but oven thermometer placed in center of oven (middle rack) shows 200 degrees. When I up the...


It could be one of two things either the control board or the temperature probe and I suspect the probe and that is a do it yourself job.

The oven temperature sensor on your Kenmore range is a one-piece unit that mounts to the rear oven wall with a mounting plate. The sensor is not difficult to change. You will need to dismantle the rear panel from the oven to access the mounting plate. Most appliance repair shops will have replacement sensors. It is a good idea to take the old sensor with you along with the model number of your oven. This way you will be sure to get the correct replacement sensor for your oven.

  • Unplug the Kenmore oven power cord from the wall outlet. Move the oven range away from the wall so that you can access the back of the unit. (Ask a friend to assist you to move the oven. if necessary.) The oven may use an anti-tip bracket on one of the rear legs. Push the oven toward the back wall to release the leg from the bracket in the floor. Tilt the back of the oven toward you, and pull the oven forward.


  • Remove the screws that secure the back panel to the oven with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Pull the back panel away from the unit and set the panel out of the work area.

  • 3

    Locate the mounting plate for the oven temperature sensor on the upper right side of the back of the oven. There will be a single wire coming from the back of the mounting plate and the wire mounts to a clip.

  • 4

    Follow the wire to the connector on the other end. Pull the connector on the wire to disconnect the wire from the wiring harness.

  • 5

    Remove the two screws that secure the mounting plate to the rear of the oven with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Pull the temperature sensor straight out of the oven. Unclip the sensor wire from the mounting clip.

  • 6

    Take the oven temperature sensor to an appliance repair facility to purchase a replacement. Insert the sensor end of the temperature sensor through the hole in the back of the oven. Slide the sensor all the way until the sensor mounting plate is flush against the oven. Secure the sensor with the two mounting screws.

  • 7

    Connect the sensor wire to the connector by pushing the connector until it locks in place. Snap the wire inside the retaining clip.

  • 8

    Place the back panel back over the rear of the oven and secure the panel with the retaining screws. Slide the Kenmore oven back into its working position and plug the power cord into the wall outlet.

    I own a Kenmore elite Model 790.4660 electric range. When I attempt to use the oven there is a beeping message "F30ERR" Thank you. Mark


    Thank you for question. I understand your concern with your Frigidaire range. Without knowing the model number I can't be 100 percent certain but F30 generally implies an open oven temperature sensor probe. The oven temperature sensor probe is located inside the oven cavity in the rear upper left or rear upper right hand corner. It can generally be removed and disconnected from inside the oven cavity.

    Check the wiring harness connections between the control board and the oven temperature sensor probe connector. Check the resistance or the sensor at room temperature with an Ohm meter, if less than 996 ohms, replace probe. Check with meter, for shorted probe harness between control & probe connector.

    . I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.

    If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:Sears Home Services

    Double check the sensor. It should ohm at 1150. Look for a frayed wire on the sensor.

    Kenmore Elite made by Frigidaire 30" slide in electric range model # 790.46603501 shows F30 ERR. Oven will not work. Range top is fine. Help!!! Turkey to cook!! Lynne


    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.
