The f3 error code keeps appearing every time the oven is on for a prolonged period. I took the temperature sensor out. How do I check the resistance?
Answer Hello BG. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. It should ohm out around 1100 ohms at room temperature. Hope this helps.

Frigidaire PLES389ECB stove with Err Code F30. Replaced temperature sensor but did not help. What's next?
Answer Shoji, The next step is to remove power to the range and access the clock, disconnect the connector with the two purple wires and check across the two pins with a meter, the resistance should be the same as when you test the resistance of the temp probe. then check each pin to chassis ground, that should have a "open" circuit. If the tests and resistances are correct, then you'll need to replace the ERC/Clock
316418735. "F30 Open RTD sensor probe/ wiring problem. Note: EOC may initially display an "F10", thinking a runaway condition exists.
- Check wiring in probe circuit for possible open condition. - Check RTD resistance at room temperature (compare to probe resistance chart). If resistance does not match the chart, replace the RTD sensor probe. - Let the oven cool down and restart the function.- If the problem persists, replace the EOC."
About 5min. after the oven gets to the temp i set it starts beeping and shows an F10 code, what does that mean and what do i need to fix it.
The F10 error code is for a runaway temperature. Check RTD sensor probe and replace if necessary. If oven is overheating, disconnect power. If oven continues to overheat when the power is reapplied, replace EOC. The resistance of the oven sensor probe should be approximately 1090 ohms at room temperature.
The video doesn't help much to change a temp probe in a wall oven. Can you do it from the front by pulling the wire out? is it long enough? Do you have to pull the whole oven out, and do it from the back? I just changed the timer panel, and now the cooking temp goes all over the place, even though it was very accurate until it failed.
You would be able to pull the oven temp probe out with out pulling the unit from installation. Just make sure that you keep the connector from falling back into the hole after disconnecting. You can test the sensor for resistance, which should be 1090 ohms of resistance. If not then replace the probe. If it test ok then check the wiring for the sensor which would require pulling from installation.
