Check the temperature sensor. TURN POWER OFF!If you open the panel where the controls are located you will see a connector that has about 10 wires on it. 2 of these wires will be violet. Pull off the connector and check the resistance between the 2 violet wires. It should be around 1000 Ohms.
If not, it is bad. part# for the Kenmore Model 790 is 316217001 - cost is about $25.00

I cant get my oven to stay on model # FFEF3015LSM after a few minutes is turning oven on, it starts to beep and screen says F30


It looks like the probe is the same as the temperature sensor.

On some models, you can recalibrate the oven control up to 35 degrees Fahrenheit higher or lower. Refer to your owner's manual for instructions on how to recalibrate the oven control.

Since you're getting an error message the following may apply:

OPEN PROBE CONNECTION
1. (F30 or F31) Check resistance at room temperature & compare to RTD Sensor resistance chart. If resistance does not match the RTD chart replace RTD Sensor Probe. Check Sensor wiring harness between EOC & Sensor Probe connector.

SHORTED PROBE CONNECTION
2. (F30 or F31) Check resistance at room temperature, if less than 500 ohms, replace RTD Sensor Probe. Check for shorted Sensor Probe harness between EOC & Probe connector. .

How do I stop an Electrolux double oven displaying a code F10 from beeping.


To cancel the F10 error, you need to unplug the oven or shut it off at the circuit breaker. Usually this error means that the oven is detecting a runaway temperature. Either the RTD (resistance temperature detector) sensor probe, the electronic oven (EOC) or the wiring is faulty.

You can check which one is bad by testing the resistance. The RTD sensor is on the back wall of the oven near the top of the cavity. It's somewhat easier to check the wire at the EOC. Unplug the connector and measure the resistance between the two wires. The resistance should be about 1100 Ohms in a room temperature environment. If you get the incorrect resistance, remove the sensor from the oven and check the resistance at the sensor. If you get the same faulty reading at the sensor and at the EOC, the sensor is probably bad. If the resistance is 1100 Ohms at the sensor, the wiring is bad. If the resistance is correct at all points, the EOC needs to be replaced.

Please add a comment with your oven's model number. I will try to find a source with the correct parts. I hope this helps.

Our oven keeps randomly beeping and flashing F10 on the display. marcnholly@yahoo.com


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.

Was cleaning oven and error code F10 appeared what is a error code F10?


hello there"
The "F10" error code caused by the runaway temperature.

The first thing I would check is the resistance across the oven temperature probe (aka oven temperature sensor) terminals at the EOC (electronic oven control) plug.

It suppose to be about 1100 Ohms at the room temperature.

If the resistance at the EOC plug is wrong, then measure the oven temperature probe resistance at the probe plug.

If it's wrong - replace the oven temperature probe. It's better to hardwire it, using a high temperature ceramic wire nuts.

If the readings at the EOC and at the oven temperature probe plug are different - check the wire harness between the oven temperature probe and the EOC.

If there is nothing wrong with the oven temperature probe resistance - replace the EOC.

- The part number for the oven temperature probe is AP3704441

- The part number for the EOC is AP3776874

- The part number for the EOC overlay is AP3778486

My Kenmore electric stove, model number 790.96122407 displays error code F10 after preheating for 10-15 minutes.


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.

F30 Erorr on stove...


The fault code shows that your temperature probe opened.

1. Check resistance at room temperature & compare to RTD Sensor resistance chart.
If resistance does not match the RTD chart replace RTD Sensor Probe.
Check Sensor wiring harness between EOC & Sensor Probe connector.

2. Check resistance at room temperature, if less than 500 ohms, replace RTD Sensor Probe. Check for shorted Sensor Probe harness between EOC & Probe connector.
