20 Most Recent Frigidaire PLEF398AC Electric Kitchen Range Questions & Answers


Hi,

The F10 F11 F12 F13 F14 Error Codes indicate 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.

THAT CODES MEANS EITHER THE PROBE SENSOR OR THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL IS BAD. UNPLUG. WITH WIRING DIAGRAM AND OHM METER, TEST THE TWO WIRES GOING TO PROBE. IF YOU GET ABOUT 1100 OHMS, YOU HAVE A BAD CONTROL. IF YOU GET 0 OR INFINITY, IT'S THE SENSOR OR THE WIRES BETWEEN THE PROBE AND THE CONTROL

What is the name and model number of your range?

PF stands for power failure. That happened when you cut breaker off. Replace switch that controls burner that doesn't work.

I found this:
"F3 - Oven temperature sensor circuit fault
The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate that the oven temperature sensor has failed. Test the sensor with an Ohm meter for the proper level of electrical resistance. The sensor is not repairable, if it is defective it will need to be replaced."

If it was me, I'd find the oven temp sensor (long thin metal thing like this: http://partsdr.com/part/5304497424-oven-sensor-kit/ this may not be the exact replacement part) and examine it. Unplug it and plug it back in. Maybe it's just lost proper contact. If not, don't waste a lot of time one it...just get a new one. They don't cost much.

Then it's just the wire connection at the burners. They're probably burned off and need replaced. I replaced the connectors on my mothers burners and they work fine now.

Hello Friend, this is Z. Thank you for your inquiry!

I understand are seeking information on how to check the heating (bake/broil) elements in your Frigidaire oven. Please describe what your appliance is doing so that I can assist you better in pinpointing the problem before you take this step? Also, may I have your model number please? You can typically locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) in the storage drawer, on the right side.

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire range, model# PLEF398AC, heats up fine on broil, but only hits about 280 degrees F when put on bake. Please try resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power, set the clock, and try setting the temperature to 350 degrees on bake. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

Good Morning Friend,

I understand you are receiving an F30 code on your Frigidaire range, model# PLEF398AC, and it will not turn on. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power, set the clock, and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

I am 99% positive you need a new EOC based on the fact that you said you heard the all too common pop noise. EOCs usually cost around $200-$300 and sometimes more. The EOC in this is the same as your clock, if you took off the top back you will see burn marks on the back of the clock.

Frigidaire... | Answered on Jul 05, 2014


F9 is a door lock error. Sometimes when the power surges the door locks then unlocks. It is possible your door lock could actually be broken, however many times when the EOC fails, it will show an F9 when it should show F1. I would guess that your EOC (main computer board) is fried. Try unplugging it for 24 hours then press the door lock button once you plug it back in. If there is no error code when you plug it in but the error code comes back when you lock the door, you probably have a problem with the lock.

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the oven is not heating in you Frigidaire range, model# FES355DSB. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and preheat your oven. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

F1 through F10 fault codes are runaway temperature codes.
If this error code is shown while the oven is in day time mode, the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) would need to be replaced. Otherwise it may be the oven temperature sensor or Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD sensor).
Sounds like you will need to contact an appliance repair technician in your area to test each to isolate the problem.
