The F10 Error Code 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 for most ovens is 316217002. Verify by entering your exact model number in their parts finder.

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.

I understand this is a self-help site... not a repair self-referral one.

Should you find this beyond the scope of your mechanical abilities - an appliance repair tech is advised. But at least you will now know the possible repair scenarios.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

F10
Runaway Temperature.
1. (F10 only) Check RTD Sensor Probe & 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.
2. (F11, 12 & 13) Disconnect power, wait 30 seconds and reapply power.
3. (F11, 12 & 13) If fault returns upon power-up, replace EOC.

I Have tried to help you.Please help me and rate/vote my response. Thanks and good luck.

If you live in the Denver Co area I can help.

Oven F10 Problem


PJC,

From the Frigidaire service manual:

"F10: Runaway Temperature.
SUGGESTED CORRECTIVE ACTION
1. (F10 only) Check RTD Sensor Probe & 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."


-hopefully it's just a bad temperature sensor!

Random beeps, oven almost starts itself


The touch pad may be defective. There is a membrane behind the buttons that will cause problems like that. The only cure is to replace the touch assy.

Message panel keeps flashing F10 error


Code F-10 indicates a temperature runaway. There are two possible problems. 1) The oven temp sensor has failed. This can be checked using a standard multimeter. The sensor is located behind the rear access panel of your oven. The sensor should read about 1100 ohms at room temperature. 2) The oven control board needs to be replaced. There are no FRU's (field replaceable units) on the control board. Check the sensor first. Even a new control board is cheaper than a new oven.
