Keith Hocky is on a distinguished road
Default F10 Error Code; Runaway Temperature
Model Number: PLEF398DCH   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The F10 error code just came up on our oven. We noticed over the weekend that the oven was running hot (my wife actually burned cookies for the first time I can remember). Anyway I went to make supper and the oven beeped to signal the proper temp. but the heating element never shut off. A different website said that I needed to check the RTD Sensor Probe, and perhaps replace it. Does this sound correct? I'd hate to eat more semi-burnt cookies and this is apple pie season!

Thanks, Keith

Keith if you have an Ohm meter, take off the back of the oven panel, and you can get to the wires on the oven sensor. They should ohm out to 1070 to1100 to be good. If the oven never cut off, and the bake element never shut off, you could have a clock control board problem. Traditionally, if the oven is off more then 75 dgrees, it will most likely be the control board. If it is only off by about 35 degrees, we can most likely make an adjustment on the control board to cempensate for the temp difference.

Here are your parts
Replacement parts for FRIGIDAIRE PLEF398DCH Frigidaire/range | AppliancePartsPros.com

And a manual
http://frigidaireservicetips.com/pdfs/344_UpdateforElectricFreestandingElectricRanges_Re v.pdf

It could be the sensor but more likely it is the control board especially if an element stayed on high and you had to remove power from the unit to stop the heating.
When it beeped the unit thought it was at the correct temperature, it is getting this info from the sensor so the sensor is probably OK. But instead of turning the element off it continued to heat so the board was at fault.

Try removing power from the unit for a couple minutes perhaps this will reset the microprocessor. This is a long shot but worth a try.

More likely than not the relay on the board that controls the element is sticking closed.
