HI, You will need to check the oven sensor wires that link the actual sensor to the main control board. Make sure that the contacts are connected properly, and not loose, or corroded. If all the wiring checks out, test the sensor for the correct resistance readings.(you will need a multimeter for this test)

The most common oven sensor should be approximately, 1100 ohms when at room temperature. The others may be close to as follows:

100°F - 1143 ohms
200°F - 1350 ohms
300°F - 1553 ohms
350°F - 1654 ohms
400°F - 1753 ohms
500°F - 1949 ohms

If the sensor test is adequate, and the wiring is Ok at the control, this will lead to a failed control board. replace the control in this case.

SOURCE: frigidaire range F10 error and very hot

The F10 F11 F12 F13 F14 Error Codes indicate that the electronic oven control board senses a runaway temperature condition in the oven through the oven sensor circuit.
This can be caused by a faulty oven temperature sensor probe or a failed electronic control board.
Oven temperature is detected by the control board as it monitors the resistance through the oven temperature sensor circuit.
You could have a failed oven temperature sensor, a wiring harness failure, an open thermal switch or a failed electronic oven control board that would cause this problem.
The first component to check would normally be the oven temperature sensor probe.
If you have a volt/ohm meter, you can shut off the breaker for the range and remove the screws that mount this sensor to the back wall of the oven.
Carefully pull the wire harness into the oven cavity until you get to the wire harness disconnect plug.
You should have enough slack to pull it this far into the oven.
Disconnect the sensor but do not let the wire harness retract back through the back wall of the oven or it will be hard to reconnect.
Measure the resistance of the oven temperature sensor with your volt/ohm meter. At room temperature, the resistance should measure around 1100 ohms.
The resistance chart is shown in the image below.

If the resistance is above 2200 ohms at room temperature, then the sensor probe is causing the F10 error code and will need to be replaced.

You can order a new sensor probe from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the sensor is 316217002.

If the resistance is normal, then one of the other causes mentioned above is producing your F10 code.
You would need to access the electronic oven control board (Timer) in the console and check the resistance at the sensor circuit connection to the control board as the next step in troubleshooting this problem.

SOURCE: we have a f10 error code on our electric range

F10 is thermal runaway. The RTD is most likely bad. Open the oven door and look in the upper corners you will see a little metal rod protruding from the back of the oven, this is the RTD or resistive temperature device. A local parts store should have these.

My Frigidaire oven shut off due to an f10 error which should I replace first since I have no tools to measure.ohms... sensor or EOC?


Good Morning mark, thank you for your post!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire range is displaying an error code of "F10". An "F10" error code normally stands for a runaway temperature (overheating). This could be an issue with your RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) or the EOC (Electronic Oven Control). I would recommend performing a reset on your oven and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for ten minutes. If you continue to experience an issue with the "F10" error code I would recommend having a professional technician out to your home for proper diagnosis and replacement of any electrical components. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this information has been helpful. -Matt

F10 code meaning for Frigidaire range?


Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

Based off the information you have provided your range is displaying an "F10" error code. "F10" typically means that your wall oven has detected an issue with the runaway temperature (overheating).

Sometimes resetting your appliance can correct this issue but in the case that it does not and you still receive that error code I would recommend having a professional come out to properly diagnose and repair. At that time you could be having an issue within RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) sensor probe or the EOC (Electronic Oven Control) having a professional come out would reduce the cost of unnecessary parts. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

F10 fault


F1 through F10 fault codes are runaway temperature codes.
If this error code is shown while the oven is in day time mode, the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) would need to be replaced. Otherwise it may be the oven temperature sensor or Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD sensor).
Sounds like you will need to contact an appliance repair technician in your area to test each to isolate the problem.

Getting F10 on oven


Good Morning Kathy, this is Z. Thank you for allowing me to assist you!

If you are receiving an error code F10, it typically indicates that your Frigidaire range (FEF352) has detected an issue with the runaway temperature (overheating). Let's try reprogramming your range by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. This usually clears most false error codes. I suggest waiting approximately ten minutes and then turn on your range. If the error code does not clear, I would recommend contacting a professional to proceed further. Most likely the EOC (Electronic Oven Control) will need replacing. Hopes this help!

F10 code after frigidaire wall oven on for 15 minutes


Good Morning Dave, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

If you are getting error code F10, it typically means that your range is experiencing an issue with the runaway temperature (overheating). One of the best ways to determine if this is a false error code is to reset the power to your range by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off for about ten minutes. If the error code persists, I would be advisable to reach out to a professional to proceed further. Most likely the RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) or the EOC (electronic oven control) will need replacing. Hope this helps!

Was cleaning oven and error code F10 appeared what is a error code F10?


hello there"
The "F10" error code caused by the runaway temperature.

The first thing I would check is the resistance across the oven temperature probe (aka oven temperature sensor) terminals at the EOC (electronic oven control) plug.

It suppose to be about 1100 Ohms at the room temperature.

If the resistance at the EOC plug is wrong, then measure the oven temperature probe resistance at the probe plug.

If it's wrong - replace the oven temperature probe. It's better to hardwire it, using a high temperature ceramic wire nuts.

If the readings at the EOC and at the oven temperature probe plug are different - check the wire harness between the oven temperature probe and the EOC.

If there is nothing wrong with the oven temperature probe resistance - replace the EOC.

- The part number for the oven temperature probe is AP3704441

- The part number for the EOC is AP3776874

- The part number for the EOC overlay is AP3778486
