Q:

F10 error on Kenmore Mdlel 790.71379700 range

A:

I understand that you are getting the error code F10 on your Kenmore range. I have taken some time to research your question here on the Manage My Life website and I noticed that someone else had asked a similar question with a posted response from an expert. I attached the link below for you to view. I hope the link that I provided is helpful. Have a nice day.

The F10 code indicates that the clock control board in the console detects a runaway temperature in the oven (high temperature above 700 degrees). This failure could be caused by a bad oven temperature sensor probe, a wiring failure or a bad clock control board. I recommend that you unplug the range and check the resistance of that oven temperature sensor probe first. Here is a link for a brief video that shows how to access and replace that component: Video: Range Oven Sensor Replacement . Here is a video that shows how to test that component using a volt/ohm meter: Video: Oven Sensor Testing . Your oven sensor problem should measure around 1100 ohms at room temperature. If that resistance is way off (more than 200 ohms) then that sensor will need to be replaced. You can order that component from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the sensor is 316490000. Unplug the range before accessing and replacing that component.

If that sensor resistance is okay, I recommend that you plug that component back in and check the resistance through the entire circuit from the control board in the console. Here is a link for a video that shows how to access that clock control board: Video: Range Clock Control Replacement . The technical information shown in the first image should help you check that circuit. If the resistance through that circuit is bad, then you have a wiring failure in that harness between the control board and the sensor. The wire harness disconnect plug at the sensor is the most suspect failure when you are checking for a wire harness problem. You may need to cut that connection off and connect the harness using ceramic wire nuts.

If the resistance through that sensor circuit is good (around 1100 ohms at room temperature) then you will need to replace that clock control board (part 316418209).

These tips should help you diagnose and repair this F10 failure in the range. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

i have a kenmore flat top range #79071379700.plastic got melted on the front right burner. how do i get it off?

A:

On something like this you will need to use a razorblade scraper to CAREFULLY scrape off the melted plastic. If melted plastic got inside the burner you will need to replace the burner & related parts.
