Q:

Kenmore Electric Range Model 790.94229409

A:

A non working Range is not something any of us want to see. If you are technically handy, this is a good site to get instruction and fix some things yourself. If you do not feel confident doing your own repairs, an option is to visit Sears Home Services and use the scheduler. While you wait for the expert to review your model, you can check the bottom link for some possibilities. Hope this is of help.

This type of failure is usually caused by a failed electronic clock control board in the console. There is a slight possibility that a problem with that broil element could be causing your failure. A broil element that is broken and shorted to the metal cabinet in the oven could heat constantly. I recommend that you unplug the range and check that broil element for visible damage. If the broil element is okay, I recommend that you replace that electronic clock control board in the console (part 316557108). You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. Here is a link for a video that shows how to replace that clock control: Video: Range Clock Control Replacement . Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing internal components.

This information should help you fix that oven failure in your 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 .

I think I might have found it. It is part (37) Probe PART NUMBER: 316490000 for $14.27. Is this the most likely problem with that F10 error? What is the procedure for replacing it? Does it just pull out or is there some assembly from behind which is needed? Please explain. Thanks,

The technical explanation of that error code on this range is shown in the first image below. Based on your description of the oven overheating, the clock control board will probably need to be replaced. That clock control board is shown as KEY 20 in the parts drawing that I provided in the second image. The part number for that clock control board in most Kenmore ranges beginning with model 790.9445 . . . is 316462804. You can look up the specific part for your range on the Sears PartsDirect website.

Unplug the range to disconnect electrical power before accessing and replacing that component. Here is a link for a brief video that shows how to replace that clock control board: Video: Range Clock Control Replacement . There is a chance that you will need the overlay for the control board unless you can carefully peel off the existing one and replace it as shown in the video.

NOTE: There is a slight chance that the oven temperature sensor is causing this problem. This is unlikely based on your symptoms. If you want to check the sensor using a volt/ohm meter, you can test is using the procedure shown in this video: Video: Oven Sensor Testing . Here is a brief video that shows how to replace that sensor in case you need it: Video: Range Oven Sensor Replacement .

I hope that this information helps. 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 .

I will see what I see. Friday I ordered a new probe, 23$ including shipping so it is minimal in cost. If not then I will need to replace the $141 range control board. Thanks. This does help. Michael

Replaced the probe unit but did not solve the problem. What next? I did locate another conversation which sounds just like mine. http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/questions/232051-error-code-f10-being-displayed-range-model-number-79094229409-does-error-code-f10-part-correct-problem There they replaced the Electronic Oven Control. Is that what you recommend? Why would this unit go out after about 2 years? Stoves are meant to last for 10-15 years? Is that correct? Thanks for you help.

A:

All of the models that begin with 790.9445 . . . and 790.9446 . . . appear to use that same control board part 316462804. I recommend that you use the full model number of your range to order that part even though it will probably be part number 316462804. Since replacing that sensor did not fix your problem, you will probably be able to repair the range by replacing that electronic clock control board.

Having one of your major appliances malfunctioning can be frustrating. I was able to locate a few things for you to look at. The first attachment is the owner's manual, it always comes in handy when you are wanting specific information upon your appliance. I also included an experts response to a similar question. I hope that this information gives you some indication on what can be the problem.

A:

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to fix the range yourself to save the cost of the service call.

First remove power to the range for at least one minute and then restore power. Reset the clock for the time of day and watch to see if the F10 code returns. If it does not you are good to go.

The F10 code on this model is one of two things.

First and the most likely problem is the oven temperature sensor,or a bad connection in the harness.

The second is the Electronic Oven control has failed.

If you have a Volt/Ohm meter you can check the resistance of the sensor to see if it is correct. It needs to be about 1100 ohms at 75 to 80 degrees or at room temperature. If it is not with in tolerance it will need to be replaced.

If it is the correct resistance the other most likely problem is the electronic control.

If you do not have a meter you could change the sensor if you like and would have a pretty good chance it will fix the problem.

To replace the sensor you will need to first REMOVE POWER from the range.

There are two different access to the sensor. The first is to open the oven door and locate the pencil thin probe mounted to the back upper wall of the oven.

Some of these you can remove from the front and others you will have to remove from behind the range.

I will give you two pictures that will illustrate which way you will have to proceed.

The part number for the sensor is;316217001 and the part number for the control is;316557108 and you can order either one of these parts from;Sears Parts Direct .

  • To remove the probe open the oven door and locate the sensor probe and remove the two screws that secures it to the oven wall.

  • Carefully pull the probe and wire harness through the oven wall until you have the plug in connector inside the oven cavity.

  • Unplug old sensor and plug in the new one and re-install into range.

  • On the other style you will need to pull the oven away from the wall and remove the lower back panel to locate and remove the sensor.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
