Hi Cmirabile,

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.

I continue to get code F11 on my Kenmore Elite Gas Range Oven and therefore, I am unable to unlock / open my oven door. I have pressed and held down the STOP button as well as the oven light button.


Your model number should be much longer than 790 30 Open drawers and doors to look for the whole model number around the frame.

With the whole model number you can get more information at Sears Parts Direct. There are parts diagrams and user manuals and you can order parts.
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/



This site gives instructions for repairing F11 and recommends checking the temperature probe and tells how to do it.

Kenmore model #790-9642440A and getting a F30 alert.


The F30 error code will flash when the dispenser motor cannot be driven to its proper position.
* It could have a mechanical failure in the linkage between the dispenser motor and the top of the dispenser.
* Loose wire connection between the machine control board and the dispenser motor
* Failed dispenser motor

Softener does not dispense and we get a code F 30


This error code F30 flashes when the central control unit (CCU) cannot drive the dispenser motor to the proper dispensing position and hence the softener dispensing problem. Disconnect power then remove the top panel and check the dispenser motor assembly for damage or broken parts. You may run a diagnostic test then take a look at the dispenser motor and observe how it behaves. Replace the dispenser motor assembly if damaged.

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.
