I came across this same problem when using the self clean. First F30 then F10 error code. The problem is a sensor switch which is accessible from the back after sheet metal cover is removed. Looking from the back it was located on the upper right with 2 wires connected to it and a red button in the center. Do all this with power breaker OFF! Push in the red button which resets switch and everything will work until you use the self clean again. Easy to replace switch and you can order new one here http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3874781&pn_=318005212. It cost $10.00 plus handling about $16.00.

F10 message


I would first pull your range out from the wall, unplug your range, then take off the back access panel and ohm your oven sensor#37 here:
http://www3.sears.com/imaging/ImageP...&titleID=00002
It should ohm out at 1100 ohms at room temperature.

If that checks good, then your control board is the problem

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

What is F30 error?


Range made by Frigidaire, cannot pull up info right now for that F30 code, just the F3 which means something is wrong in the sensor circuit, sensor, wiring harness or the EOC/clock...what does your tech sheet tell us this F30 means??? What was the ohm reading on the old sensor.....if changing this did not solve the problem about down to checking the wiring harness, if it is ok back to the clock causing the problem if the F30 pertains to the sensor circuit failure....

Kenmore oven error code f10


on that type of range F10 indicates a problem within the electronic control, but it could possible be caused by a faulty temperature sensor.

I would recommend service from a technician

F30 - F10 error messages


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.

The F10 indicates that the electronic oven control board senses a runaway temperature condition in the oven through the oven sensor circuit.
This can be caused by a faulty oven temperature sensor probe or a failed electronic control board.
Oven temperature is detected by the control board as it monitors the resistance through the oven temperature sensor circuit.
You could have a failed oven temperature sensor, a wiring harness failure, an open thermal switch or a failed electronic oven control board that would cause this problem.
The first component to check would normally be the oven temperature sensor probe.
If you have a volt/ohm meter, you can shut off the breaker for the range and remove the screws that mount this sensor to the back wall of the oven.
Carefully pull the wire harness into the oven cavity until you get to the wire harness disconnect plug.
You should have enough slack to pull it this far into the oven.
Disconnect the sensor but do not let the wire harness retract back through the back wall of the oven or it will be hard to reconnect.
Measure the resistance of the oven temperature sensor with your volt/ohm meter. At room temperature, the resistance should measure around 1100 ohms.
The resistance chart is shown in the image below.

If the resistance is above 2200 ohms at room temperature, then the sensor probe is causing the F10 error code and will need to be replaced.

You can order a new sensor probe from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the sensor is 316217002.

If the resistance is normal, then one of the other causes mentioned above is producing your F10 code.
You would need to access the electronic oven control board (Timer) in the console and check the resistance at the sensor circuit connection to the control board as the next step in troubleshooting this problem.

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.
