Resolved Question:

m y frigidaire ples389ec range has a diagnostic feature and the # XXXXX is F30 which is supposed to tell just what the problem is i was told it was the probe inside the oven, it was the timer, and the control board on the front of the stove and I changed those parts at considerable expense and the same things are happening can you be of any assistance?

Hi, thanks for using F30 is a probe error. It is displayed anytime the resistance value is out of range. This is easily diagnosed by taking a reading of the probe resistance at the control. At room temperature, it should read about 1090 ohms of resistance. An ohmmeter can be purchased at any hardware store for about $15.00 or less.

i replaced the probe at the urging of a last tech and the problem still is with us that is why the other two expensive parts timer & control board were purchased and installed I am ready to cut out on this stove i'm 500 dollars and the other 24 dollar cost down please help

There is likely a break in the wire harness from the probe to the control....a meter will tell you for sure
