The F10 indicates 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.

My frigidaire stove I have to umplugg it because keeps beeping f10 can' stop I push any bottom and keeps beeping


Hi Elizabeth! From what you have posted, your appliance is experiencing a high-temperature error code (F10). A high-temperature error indicates that your oven has reached too high of a temperature for too long of a time period. If unplugging your appliance does not prove to be successful, you would require a visit from a professional to check the temperature sensor and the electronic oven control (brains of your appliance behind the touch pad). If you have any other questions please comment so I can help!
Thanks,
Chris

After broiling steaks, f10 appeared on screen and constant beeping since. 1-2 hrs now. turned off electricity and keeps beeping.


Press the Stop/Clear button. If that doesn't work, press it and hold for 3 seconds. If you get a fault code, something is broken. If it is associated with broiling, the first thing I would check is the broiler temperature sensor. Is there a buildup of grease on the ceiling of the oven?

Try power cycling the range by turning it off at the breaker. Wait 10 seconds and then reset the breaker. Reset the clock. Sounds like the computer in the range needs to be rebooted. Hope this works.

"F1" is an Electronic Oven Control (EOC) Board failure error code. The top stove functions will continue to operate normally, but you probably will not have any bake or broil capabilites as this board controls all your oven functions. This is a very simple repair that you can accomplish yourself, but the price may be something to consider.

Searspartsdirect.com has the part listed under the "Backguard" heading as item number 20 (part #316101001) and lists for $174.

Repairclinic.com has the part listed as item number 496226 and lists for slightly less at $170.

If you do not have a warranty or service plan in place, you, unfortunately, will have to suffer the cost. If you wish to pursue this as a do-it-yourself repair, let me know and I will give you easy step-by-step instructions on how to replace it. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you have further questions.
