Question and Answers


I have a kenmore oven model number 79045489502 Need help!


Thank you for your question on the oven cutting off and giving a F30 error code.

This would indicate that the oven temperature sensor probe is open.

This could be a problem with the connector where the probe plugs into the wire harness. It may have melted and now is open.

The F90 is monitoring the oven door lock switch and has sensed that switch is open.

If you feel comfortable with working on the range yourself you could check the wiring on the back of the range for bad connections on the oven sensor.

First you will need to remove power from the range.

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

Then pull the range out from the wall and remove the back panel and inspect the wire harness to the oven temperature sensor.

If the sensor harness is burnt please cut out the connector and hard wire around the plug by using ceramic wire nuts you can purchase at the hardware store.

If the connector is okay then you can unplug the sensor and check the sensor for 1100 ohms at room temperature with a volt/ohm meter.

With the F90 error code you should check the wiring connections from the Electronic oven control to the switches for the door lock mechanism.

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 .

Please let me know what you decided to do.
