Oven Temperature rises above setting

My electric oven, Frigidaire FEF353CATA, does not seem to stop heating when it gets to temperature (it overheats), but the temperature on the read out does not go above the number I set it at.
I was going to replace the temperature probe but someone on this site says I would see an error code if that was bad and I have no error code. Where would the error code be anyway?

    If there was an error code where would it appear, in place of the time or in place of the temperature or some place else?

    One local parts guy wants me to replace the temp probe, another guy says that if it is the ERC then I just threw $50 away on a probe I didn't need. That's why I am trying to get some good extra opinions

    I took out the sensor and it read 1090 ohms at room temperature. I put it in boiling water and the ohms went up to 1240. I guess that means it works and it's the ERC that is bad. Before I took everything apart I did a test. I set the oven to 225 and put an oven thermometer inside. Within 20 minutes the oven thermometer read over 400, but the digital temp setting said 225.

You may or may not see the error code.
The temp probe is less expensive and is most likely your problem.
If you choose to replace it and the problem remians your ERC will have to be replaced.

    Often a defective probe causes a defective ERC.

    It will not be money wasted. It may be money saved if it works with the existing ERC.

    If you are handy with a volt/ohm meter disconnect and check the oven sensor. If it reads below 900 ohms or above 1200 ohms it is bad.

    If not the ERC is bad.

Oven stops working when it reaches requested temperature


Sounds like a temperature sensor and/or the control board are not communicating correctly. You could also have a faulty baking element that will not hold heat. Contact a professional.

I put my Frigidaire Electrolux oven in cleaning mode an hour ago. It is now beeping non stop with "F1 Err" on the screen. Nothing I push seems to work


The F1 code indicates a control failure. Try pressing a key to see if it displays on the screen. If not, the keypad may have shorted and requires replacement.

If the keypad is fine, there is perhaps a problem with the internal checksum; disconnect the power for 30 seconds and reconnect it. If the code remains, you must replace the electronic oven control (EOC).
- If the F1 code appears when the oven is running, it means that the oven senses an overheating condition. Use an external thermometer to check the temperature inside the oven.
- If it is accurate, it means that either the temperature sensor probe or the control relay has malfunctioned. Disconnect the power, and inspect the sensor probe, replacing it if necessary.
- If the oven is actually overheating, replace the EOC.
- If the oven is allowed to overheat, the resulting damage is possibly so extensive that the entire oven may require replacement.

I get an F1 symbol on mt electric oven


The F1 error code usually means the oven temperature has exceeded the safe limit for the oven.

Usually this is an indication that the temperature sensor has failed 'on' allowing the heating element to overheat the oven.

You would need to have the temperature sensor replaced.

Electric Diagram for Kenmore Model 790


Has the oven run out of control or gotten too hot? The 790 series is made by Frigidaire and those fault codes are F0 to F8. F2 indicates the temperature sensor is reading too hot. Now with the double oven models, some manufactures add an extra digit to the fault codes to indicate which oven created the fault.

Your most likely fix is to replace the temperature sensor. The most probable locations for the wiring diagram is taped inside the bottom drawer, on the back or under side of the oven, or behind one of the panels on the back of the oven. This might tell you the room temperature resistance for the temperature sensor so you can test it with an ohmmeter and be sure that it is faulty. Try Appliance Parts Pros for replacement sensors.
