Question and Answers

Q:

I have a Kenmore Wall Oven Model 79040192400 it cooks oven. the top and middle are not cooked but the bottom is burnt 79040192400

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Since the broil element alternates with the bake element during the bake cycle it is important the broil element is working. Based on your symptom, the broil element may not be heating. From a cold oven, start a broil cycle and then carefully check to see if the broil element is heating or not. If it's not heating, it could have a faulty electronic oven control/clock assembly or it possibly could have a faulty broil element or a burnt wire connection at the broil element or electronic oven control.

If the broil element is not heating, the broil element can be removed from inside the oven cavity and tested with an Ohm meter for any Ohm resistance. If the Ohm meter measures resistance, the broil element is likely okay and the electronic oven control/clock assembly is likely faulty. NOTE: Flip the two house breakers off dedicated for the wall oven before removing the broil element for testing.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

If the actual temperature is off by less than 35 degrees, you can adjust that control as shown on page 22 of your owner's manual. Here is a link for that manual: Owner's Manual .

Make sure that the broil element works properly in the broil mode. That broil element is used in the bake mode for browning the top of baked items. It will cycle on and off briefly when the oven is used in the bake mode.

If the temperature is off by more than 35 degrees and the broil element works, then I recommend that you shut off the house circuit breakers for the oven to disconnect electrical power. You can check the oven sensor probe with a volt/ohm meter as shown in this brief repair video: Oven Sensor Testing . The image below shows how to access that sensor. The sensor probe should measure around 1100 ohms at room temperature. If that sensor is bad, then it will need to be replaced.

If that sensor is okay, you can check the bake element for damage. You can also check the resistance of that bake element with a volt/ohm meter. That boil element should measure between 10 and 25 ohms of resistance. If it is bad, then it will need to be replaced.

If the sensor and the bake element are both okay, then you will probably need to replace that digital clock control board in the console.

Q:

Why is my Kenmore wall oven/microwave combo flashing the F10 error code and beeping?

A:

Although you did not indicate the model number of your oven/microwave combo, I suspect that the F10 indicates a runaway temperature condition is detected by the electronic oven control board. Since this fault code is being indicated when the oven is off and at room temperature, it is likely that you have a problem with the oven temperature sensor. You could also have a failed electronic oven control board or a wiring problem. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair this type of problem.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with the full model number of your Kenmore oven/microwave combo.

wow, what a coincidence, I'm having the same problem with my kenmore oven wall unit, model # 79040192400. I set the temp to 350 and wait until the buzzer indicates that the oven is ready. I put my food in the oven and 5 minutes later there's a buzzer noice and F10 is flashing. I reset oven with breaker switch and the problem persist. I reside in a furnished county apt. I put in a work order and maintenance is slow to diagnose and remedy the problem, maybe because of budget cuts. Therefore, I'm trying to remedy the problem myself. I have done other maintenance items such as fix the toilet and air conditioner. County maintenance personnel are so slow. I chatted with a sears rep which was a waste of time. Thanks so much for any significant diagnostic information that you may be able to render.
