Question and Answers

Q:

Why do I get a F10 error code on a Kenmore Elite stove?

A:

The F10 indicates that the electronic oven control board senses a runaway temperature condition in the oven through the oven sensor circuit. 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 in the console and check the resistance at the sensor circuit connection to the control board as the next step in troubleshooting this problem if sensor resistance is normal. If you need more help with this problem, resubmit your question with additional details.

Q:

Kenmore Elite Electric Built-in Oven (Model #790-49073400).

A:

Thanks for contacting manage my life about your range/oven model 790-49073400,sorry you are having a problem with it heating. Unfortunately there is not much that you can do, but here are a couple tips to try before calling the technician out. First be sure that the power supply to the oven is provided, go to your breakers and turn the oven circuit all the way off then back on, this will reset the breakers and also reset the control if it just had a simple misfire.  Be sure that all controls are properly set to bake and broil perceptively. If this does not help, then the oven will need to be inspected and tested by an experienced technician using high quality testing equipment and tools. Often the oven has to be removed from the wall. I hope this helps, if you need service here is a link to Sears Home Services. Ron H.

How do you post a new question? I'm having issues with my 79049073400 oven. It appeared that the control board shorted out (sparks, smoke, didn't work anymore). I replaced it and it now shows an F10 error code and beeps when I throw the breaker in. I checked the thermal sensor and it reads 1080 ohms which seems close enough to the 1100 I read was expected. Maybe the wiring harness next? But I wanted to get some input before diving into that. Thanks!

Q:

upper and lower oven not heating properly 79097503002 Kenmore Elite Electric range

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the uneven cooking that is happening in both the upper and lower ovens. I know how frustrating that is to have happen.

You may have a problem with the temperature sensor circuit. The control board detects temperature in the oven by sensing the resistance through the oven temperature sensor probe circuit. The normal resistance of this circuit at room temperature is about 1100 ohms.

If you are confident and comfortable using an OHM meter which would be required to do these checks, I recommend unplugging the range and checking the resistance of the sensor probe circuit first. If the resistance is high, I recommend checking the resistance directly at the oven temperature sensor probe. If the probe is bad, it will need to be replaced. If the probe is okay, then you will need to check the wiring between the probe and the control board. If the resistance through this circuit is okay and increases properly when the probe is heated up, then you could have a failed control board.

Since both upper and lower ovens are heating like this, it would be unlikely that both temp sensors have gone out. I would suspect the control board in this situation, but I would test the sensors to be sure nonetheless.

If you would feel more confident have a Sears Home Service technician help assist with the diagnosis/repair, you can call 1-800-469-4663, or click here to be directed to the page to set up service.

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

My lower oven will preheat and reach temp but will not maintain the temp (elements never kick in again unless you input a new temp). The top oven works fine. Temp sensors ohm out okay, plus I swapped the two. Everybody says to replace the range ecb (part #316576304) but that made no difference. Any thoughts?
