So unfortunately F30 means that the oven thinks the oven sensor is shorted inside your oven. This typically happens during self clean since the oven gets so hot that it can short out the display board. Either way, the sensor will likely need to be replaced to fix the issue and until the sensor gives a good reading, the oven or the cooktop will not function. You can probably go to a parts store tomorrow with your model number to pick up the oven sensor if you think you can replace the part yourself, but other than that there is no way to bypass this error or anything like that.

I understand your upset but there is no reason to take it out on someone who is trying to help. All you asked the first time wasQUOTE:Help is ther any way I can get it to be able to use the cook top?
To that I said no you can not use the cooktop or the oven until the sensor is replaced.
I will only continue to help at this point if you can remain calmer than you have shown thus far. Keep in mind, I don't deserve to be talked down to---I'm here to help.
It's understandable. But, there actually isn't a way to unlock the door and unlocking the door wouldn't do you any good until you have a sensor. Once you have the sensor you just pull the oven out, remove the back sheet metal panel, unplug the oven and then unplug the sensor. From that point you can plug the new sensor in and the oven door will unplug when you plug the oven back in. Once you plug the door is unlocked, you can then unplug the oven again, unscrew the sensor inside the oven, and then properly mount the new oven.
The oven won't allow you to unplug the oven door because it thinks the oven is over 700 degrees inside which is why the error is occurring. For safety reasons it won't unlock the door and it won't allow you to unlock the oven door until it thinks the temperature is lower.
That reset button resets the heat if it trips, it does not reset the error nor does it generate an error at all. Maybe you moved some wires when you took the back panel off, but I can't imagine the fix will last for any length of time or be reliable.
OK well I'm glad it's working, but pushing that reset button really has nothing to do with the oven unlocking and working again.
