Question about Kenmore Kitchen Ranges
I keep getting Error code F30 on Kenmore Elite 790.4660 Range??
The F30 error code indicates an open oven temperature sensor probe.
A failed sensor probe will usually be the cause of this fault.
A broken or loose wire could also cause it.
In some cases, you could have a failed electronic oven control board.
I recommend replacing the temperature sensor probe first.
You should be able to access this sensor from inside the oven.
Shut off the breaker to disconnect electrical power to the range.
Remove the screws and gently pull the sensor forward.You can see the probe in the oven in the top left or right corner. It is pencil sized and about 5 inches long. You would need to get to the back of the oven to replace it.
There should be enough wire available to access the plug.
Unplug the sensor.
If you have a volt/ohm meter, you can measure the resistance of the sensor to verify that it is bad.
The normal resistance at room temperature is about 1100 ohms.
If it is open (measures infinite resistance) or significantly higher than 1100 ohms, then it will certainly need to be replaced.
If you suspect that it is okay, you could have a wiring failure or a failed electronic oven control board.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Good luck and have a nice day.
