I am getting a "F30  ERR" message when I try to bake.  What does this mean?

It means you ain't baking :)

It's basically the same as the F-3 code...bad sensor probe.

You are right I am not baking.

I thought of the sensor probe also and tested it and got 1200 ohms.  I saw that 1100 ohms is nominal but thought a failure was like less than 500 or greater than 3000 ohms.  Is 1200 Ohms a failure?

a tripped thermal overload will also give f30 error on the friggy's, its either under the cooktop or on the front edge of the cooktop behind the control panel depending on your model, it has a red manual reset button
