Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The surface element "ON" indicator not turning off when the burner switch is turned off indicates that one of the burner switches is faulty. In order to diagnose which burner switch is faulty will require disconnecting the range from the power source. 

Remove the cover from behind the control panel. On each one of the burner switches are several terminals and wire connections. Locate the terminal labeled with a letter "P". Disconnect the wire connected to terminal "P" from just one switch and position the disconnected wire so that it does not touch any other wire or any part of the metal cabinet. Reconnect the power cord and see if the "ON" light is off or still on. If the "ON" light is off, that would be the faulty switch and it would need to be replaced. If the "ON" light comes on, then disconnect the power cord, reattach the wire and then disconnect the wire from terminal "P" from the next switch. Reconnect the power cord and see if the "ON" light is on or off. Continue the process until the "ON" light stays off and then replace that specific switch you pulled the wire off from.

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Q:

Persistent F30 code on Model #79094373700 Kenmore Electric range

A:

You were correct to consider the sensor probe first.  After addressing the probe I would contemplate that it might be a  tripped thermal circuit breaker, a wiring failure or a bad control board.  I can also appreciate your wanting to do the work yourself for economic reasons.  If you find a thermal circuit breaker that is "open" then it will need to be replaced. If both thermal circuit breakers are okay, then you will need to check for a break in the wiring harness. Or it could be the control board itself that's failed.   I have located a link that will discuss your situation in more detail, giving a step by step process you can review to narrow down the problem. 
Click here to view the link.  Though this link discusses a different model number,
the mechanics are likely going to be very similar.Keep in mind that an expert will be
responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and
instruction.  I hope this will help you get your range working again and have a nice day.

Thank you, I will let my husband read as soon as he gets home. The stove top is working fine, would that be the case if the control board were bad?

From my husband: after replacing the probe and vent tube, we broke out the ohms meter and the probe read 11~~osh (in range) and so did the wires from the mother board. We have also traced every wire in the entire unit and everything still looks new: no rubs, no burns, nothing abnormal to my mechanic husband. However your link, to the other �type� stove, has thermal circuit breakers � we cant locate any on our specific unit. Our burned out wires on the vent tube would most likely trip something. However, we cant locate them. Could ours be built into one of the other parts? If they don��t exist, then my husband believes the control board is the most probable problem, but we really need to know if thermal circuit breakers exist on our unit and if so where so we can check them first .

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your range. I recommend removing and disconnecting the new sensor probe and measure the resistance of it with an ohm meter. Then reconnect the sensor probe and then disconnect the sensor harness connection at the oven control board and re-measure the resistance across the two wire leads. It should measure the same as when you measured it directly at the sensor probe. If the reading is different or showing open (no continuity) recheck the connections at both ends of the sensor probe circuit. The sensor probe harness may have a broken wire. If it measures the same the likely failure is the Oven Control board. The sensor probe should have a resistance reading of 1091 ohms at room temperature of 75 degrees plus or minus 2.5 degrees. See image below. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you. My husband measured all the recommended readings and they are all within limits. Does this mean it is likely the oven control board (part number316557237)? Is there no reset button on any of the breakers?

A:

Mary, I know that this have been very frustrating for you. Since you husband got all of the correct reading from the probe, then yes the problem is the control board. There is not any type of reset on this model. In order to fix this you will need to replace the control board. Please let me know if you need anything else. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
