I assume you have it out of the oven and a room temperature. They generally should show around 1100 ohms at room temperature and have a negative coefficient - resistance goes down as they warm up.

Error 27 how to fix this where is a problem

This is telling you have a problem with your oven temperature sensor. You'll need to test it with an ohm meter. You should read 1100 ohms across the two wires from the sensor.

Where is thermostat located in Frigidaire wall oven?

Hello Brad,
The thermostat is a small diameter appx. 6 inch long round probe it looks like this
11_4_2011_12_23_15_pm.jpgTo test it for proper functionality ya need to use a multi meter capiable of reading ohms of resistiance...unplug the sensor from the wiring and place the meter leads onto the 2 wire ends of the sensor and at room temperature once the oven has been off check for between 1060-1100 ohms at the sensor if its good,if the ohms value is much higher or lower that 1060-1100 at room temp. the sensor is defective.

My maytag oven is showing a f3 code model #che98oobcb

The "F3" fault code is indicating an oven temperature sensor failure or a temperature sensor circuit failure. The oven temperature sensor could be open or shorted. Test the sensor for proper ohm value, frayed or pinch wiring, or connector damage. The oven temperature sensor probe can be found sticking out from the rear wall inside the oven cavity. It will need to be disconnected and tested with an ohm meter. I added a chart in the image below of the resistances of the oven sensor at specific temperatures. At normal ambient room temperature, the oven temperature sensor should have a resistance value of 1050-1100 ohms. See image below. The oven temperature sensor is part #12001655. richroth_137.jpg

Receiving a F 10 message

F10 error code means "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 and control checked.

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.

Hope this helps.

Wall oven flashing f3 and beeping

Use a ohm meter to test the sensor, it should read about 1100 ohms at room temperature, if so, then your oven sensor is good.
If your oven sensor tests good, then your control board would need to be replaced.

When I start the self cleaning cycle After about 15 minutes it starts beeping and the display shows F5. The unit is about 10yrs old. What could this be?

This could a bad temperature sensor or a bad clock.(ERC).
Disconnect the power.
Remove the rear panel.
Unhook the temperature sensor wire and test the temp sensor with a volt/ohm meter set for ohms.
A plus/minus reading of 1100 ohms is good.
If temp sensor reads good replace the ERC(clock).

Oven began beeping F2 for no reason. Oven was off at the time

This indicates an over temperature condition occurred. This could be caused by a failed temperature sensor, failed cooling fan, or problem with the control board.
The temperature sensor can be tested with an ohm-meter (should read 1090 ohms @ 70 F). If the sensor is good, fan is running, may be welded relay contacts on the control board. We rebuild these control boards at

My GE oven gives error code of F3 and F5


Thank you for contacting Fixya.

It's possible it could be the senser, just two screws hold it on and the wires unplug with a connector.
As to understand it in details whether the sesor is the bad part you can use a ohm meter to test the sensor, it should read about 1100 ohms at room temperature, if so, then your oven sensor is good.

You can get a cheap ohm meter at Radio Shack or any hardware store. If your oven sensor tests good, then your control board would need to be replaced.
That would help to resolve the issue.

God Bless.
