Your f30 problem may be a bad sensor circuit. It may have an open connection or just plain defective sensor. Check the connection between the clock and the sensor as well as disconnect and measure the resistance of the sensor - should be about 1090ohms at room temp (75F)

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.

SOURCE: what is error code F10
Tiger.......I have a Kenmore Model 790 as well, and am getting the F10 Error code. It says in the manual that it is either the RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) or the EOC (Electronic Oven Control), but I am trying to find troubleshooting tips myself, as I do not want to pay $130 for a tech to come to my house. I know you can press the oven (off) button to stop the beeping momentarily, but the manual also says that the oven may need to be reprogrammed.....which is what I'm trying to find how to do. Sorry I couldn't give you a quick fix solution, but I'm am still searching.

Here is some wisdom for understanding F1 fault codes.
In some models, there are subcodes that make diagnosis even easier.
Here's a simple explanation of what's going on and how to troubleshoot:
The F1 code indicates that:
a. The electronic range control (ERC) is sensing heat in the oven when in a time-of-day (i.e., not cooking) mode.
b. The ERC is receiving information to run multiple heat functions simultaneously.
Although different components (depending upon the model) could generate the code, simple and straightforward testing using your ohm meter is all you gotta do to test for it.
1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor has to be within spec or it will cause the F1 code.
As an example of being out-of-spec, the ERC will generate an F1 fault code when the sensor shows 1650 ohms during a time-of-day mode.
This is equivalent to 350°F in the oven.
The resistance isn't high enough to generate an F2 code (runaway temp) or an F3 or F4 code (shorted/open sensor circuit).
The ERC monitors the sensor circuit after a heat cycle and expects the resistance to drop back to 1050-1100 ohms.
The fault code is generated when this doesn't happen. Checking the sensor circuit means also checking the harness,
harness connections and the sensor itself.
2. If the oven sensor circuit checks okay, then turn your inquisitive eyeballs to the touchpad.
If the range has a separate touchpad/keyboard, the keypad may have moisture that is shorting several circuits simultaneously.
If the F1 code is given immediately (instead of during or after a heat cycle),
remove the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the ERC after clearing the F1 code. If the F1 code does not return in five minutes,
then cast a suspicious gaze upon the touchpad/keyboard. Shorts may be caused by using an ammonia-based glass cleaner.
The touchpad surface will absorb ammonia-based cleaners that are sprayed directly on the glass surface. When heat is applied,
the surface material can break down causing shorts.
If you're gonna use ammonia-based cleaners on your control panel, then you should spray it on the rag and then wipe the touchpanel
-don't spray directly onto the surface of the touchpad.
3. On Amana ranges with a rotary temperature dial, be sure that the knob is in the OFF position when performing tests.
4. If these tests all check good, then replace the ERC.

The last expert is correct.
According to the Frigidaire technical documentation, most likely the cause of the problem is a bad Electronic Oven Control (EOC).
Check the wire harness and the P4 connector at the EOC. If the wire harness and the connector are fine, replace the EOC
You could try to disconnect the power supply for few minutes, say 15 minutes and see, if that could help the situation unless you need to replace EOC/Clock/Control board.
I don't think it is sensor as this is a common problem on these units and 99% it is faulty EOC.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Note - Kindly perform the repair, if you have prior appliance repair experience. These ovens are quite dangerous to work. It could not only damage the oven but could also harm you,if done in an appropriate way.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
