Stove will not turn off CHECK

Temperature Control Thermostat


If the oven won't turn off the oven thermostat is often the cause of the problem. The electrical contacts inside the oven thermostat can weld themselves together and then the oven won't turn off. If this happens, turn off power to the entire appliance at the household circuit breaker or fuse. The oven thermostat usually cannot be tested and must be replaced if defective.

Oven Control Board


The oven control board has a set of relays that turn on and off power to the bake and broil circuits according to the customer settings and sensor input. If the oven won't turn off it could be that one of the relays on the oven control board is shorted closed, providing voltage to the heating circuit. It can be dangerous if the oven won't turn off. Don't leave the oven unattended without turning off power to the oven.

Relay board:
Some ovens are equipped with a relay board. This circuit board has several relays which control the switching of electrical current to the oven heat source. If the oven won't turn off it may be that one or more of the relays on the relay board have failed. If this happens replace the relay board. The relays on the board are not sold separately. ALSO CHECK THE BAKE AND BROIL ELEMENT.

Why is the oven temperature incorrect?

The oven temperature control is usually controlled by a thermostat that uses a capillary and liquid filled bulb. When the bulb's liquid gets heated up, it expands and puts pressure on a diaphragm which opens and closes a switch that controls the gas to the burner. Just set the dial to what you need the temperature to be. Over time, it is possible for your thermostat to lose its calibration. Sometimes, the thermostat sensing bulb comes loose from the holder. If it is out of place, the thermostat may be getting faulty readings. If this is the problem, re-aligning the bulb properly will take care of this problem.

Digital display models use a sensor to control temperature. If this is faulty, replace it. Other ovens use a mechanical system to control the temperature.

On many models, you can adjust your oven thermostat using a small screwdriver. The adjusting screw is located on the thermostat valve stem. Remove the knob and you'll see the screw underneath it. You want to turn the oven on and run it through at least two cycles while watching a calibrating thermometer in the oven for high and low temperatures. Adjust the screw as necessary to fine tune the temperature.

Some models don't have an adjustable thermostat, and you will have to replace the thermostat if you want to resolve the problem.

I would say that the oven thermostat is malfunctioning, and you will probably need a new one fitting.
Make sure the sensor inside the oven has not become detached, as this will make a differance.
Plz leave feedback.

I have Frigidaire gallery oven with an F 10 error code. What does the code mean?


A faulty RTD sensor probe is one of the causes for an F10 code or overheating oven. The sensor probe is supposed to detect the exact temperature in the Frigidaire electric range cavity and relay it to the oven's main control so it knows when to shut off the heating elements. Follow your wiring diagram to find the probe's location, which can differ among the models. Inspect it for any obvious damage such as cracks or tears in the wiring.

Frigidaire pleb30s9fcd oven overheating whats wrong


Hi there!
From what you have described it sounds like the unit's thermostat and or temperature sensor is not functioning properly. Typically this is not a DIY type of job to complete on your own. Please contact a professional that your manufacturer suggests. Please let me know if you have any other concerns or questions.

Troubleshooting frigidaire oven


Too hot of a temperature - Check RTD sensor probe and replace if necessary. If oven is overheating, disconnect power. If oven continues to overheat when the power is reapplied, replace EOC. Severe overheating may require the entire oven to be replaced should damage be extensive

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 have a oven that wont stop beeping all that is showing is f 10


The F10 error code indicates a runaway temperature condition. If your oven is overheating, unplug the power cord for a few minutes. When plugged back in if the oven is still overheating, you will need to have the temp sensor & control checked.

Frigidaire self cleaning convection range


Error code F1

1. Shorted keypad.
2. Control's internal checksum may have become corrupted.
3. Control has sensed a potential runaway oven condition. Control
may have shorted relay, RTD sensor probe may have gone bad.
1. Disconnect power, wait 30 seconds and reapply power. If fault returns
upon power-up, replace EOC.
2. Check RTD sensor probe and replace if necessary. If oven is
overheating, disconnect power. If oven continues to overheat when
the power is reapplied, replace EOC. Severe overheating may require
the entire oven to be replaced, should damage be extensive.
3. Replace EOC.
Check resistance at room temperature, if less than 500 ohms, replace
Temperature (°F) Resistance (ohms)
32 ± 1.9 1000 ± 4.0
75 ± 2.5 1091 ± 5.3
250 ± 4.4 1453 ± 8.9
350 ± 5.4 1654 ± 10.8
450 ± 6.9 1852 ± 13.5
