I cant get my oven to stay on model # FFEF3015LSM after a few minutes is turning oven on, it starts to beep and screen says F30


It looks like the probe is the same as the temperature sensor.

On some models, you can recalibrate the oven control up to 35 degrees Fahrenheit higher or lower. Refer to your owner's manual for instructions on how to recalibrate the oven control.

Since you're getting an error message the following may apply:

OPEN PROBE CONNECTION
1. (F30 or F31) Check resistance at room temperature & compare to RTD Sensor resistance chart. If resistance does not match the RTD chart replace RTD Sensor Probe. Check Sensor wiring harness between EOC & Sensor Probe connector.

SHORTED PROBE CONNECTION
2. (F30 or F31) Check resistance at room temperature, if less than 500 ohms, replace RTD Sensor Probe. Check for shorted Sensor Probe harness between EOC & Probe connector. .

F30 error on kenmore elite electric stove


F30 - Open Probe connections

F31 - Shorted Probe connections

Suggested Corrective Action
1. (F30 or F31) Check resistance at room temperature & compare to *RTD Sensor resistance chart. If resistance does not match the RTD chart replace RTD Sensor Probe. Check Sensor wiring harness between EOC & Sensor Probe connector.

2. (F30 or F31) Check resistance at room temperature, if less than 500 ohms, replace *RTD Sensor Probe. Check for shorted Sensor Probe harness between EOC & Probe connector.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this free answer).

My oven displays error f31. It beeps and when I press clear the beeping stops. But if I try and set the temp it reverts back to f31


The F31 fault code indicates a problem with the oven temperature sensor probe. The temperature probe is secured in the top of the inside back wall of the oven. Unplug the range to disconnect electrical power. Open the oven door and remove the racks. Remove the screws that secure the oven temperature sensor probe in the back wall of the oven. Carefully pull the sensor into the oven until you get to the wire harness disconnect plug. Unplug the sensor probe. Do not let the wire harness **** back through the opening in the back of the oven. Check the resistance of the probe with a volt/ohm meter. At room temperature, you should measure about 1100 ohms of resistance. Since you are getting the F31 fault code, you will not likely measure this resistance. If the resistance is bad, replacing the oven temperature sensor probe .This should fix your problem. You can order this part from the www.appliancehelponline.com If the resistance of the temperature probe is normal (1100 ohms), then I recommend that you access the electronic oven control board in the console (with the range still unplugged ). Remove the upper back panel. Pull the P5 connector on the control board and measure the resistance through the purple wires (pins 12 and 13 as shown below) to check the resistance of the temperature probe through the circuit that connects to the board. If the resistance is drastically different than the 1100 ohms measured at the probe, then the wire harness is bad and will need to be replaced. If you measure the proper resistance through this wiring harness at the control board and the connections are good, then the electronic oven control board will need to be replaced.

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO SET THE OVEN TEMPERATURE.


Normally you just turn the dial to the required temperature as indicated on the dial.

Usually the oven dial will say 'main oven' or have a symbol indicating which it is.

Sometimes it is a digital display and you have to press a button until the required temperature is displayed.

Erratic oven temperature


The ignitor is probably weak and not relighting when it needs to. Replace the ignitor.

Error codes


hi there
ur error F-30 indicates an open probe connection....
for (F30 or F31) Check resistance at room temperature & compare to *RTD Sensor resistance chart. If resistance does not match the RTD chart replace RTD Sensor Probe. Check Sensor wiring harness between EOC & Sensor Probe connector.
if ur not confident and comfortable abt doing this work... i suggest u call a tech....
good luck and stay safe.....
have a nice day
