A:

The F10 code on that range indicates that the clock control board detected a runaway oven temperature (out of range high temperature). Since the oven is not overheating, I recommend that you check that oven temperature sensor probe. Here is a link for a brief repair video that shows how to test that sensor: Oven Sensor Testing . Here is a link that shows how to access the sensor probe (with the range unplugged ): Oven Sensor Probe Replacement . That oven temperature sensor probe should measure around 1086 ohms at room temperature. If the resistance of that probe is over 1200 ohms at room temperature then it will need to be replaced. The part number for that probe is 316490000. You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If that sensor probe resistance is normal, I recommend that you plug that sensor probe back into the harness and re-install it. You can then check the resistance of the entire sensor circuit from the clock control board in the console (with the range still unplugged ). Here is a link for a video that shows how to access that clock control board: Range Clock Control Replacement . You do not have to remove that control board to check the resistance through that sensor circuit. Just access the back of that control board. You can then measure the resistance through the sensor circuit that connects to that control board through the violet wires. You should measure that same resistance that you measured through the sensor. If the resistance through that circuit is high, then you apparently have a problem with that wiring harness. The most suspect cause of that problem is a bad disconnect plug on that sensor. You may need to cut that disconnect plug off and properly connect those wires using ceramic wire nuts.

If the resistance through that sensor circuit is normal then you will probably need to replace that clock control board (part 316557212) to fix this problem. You may also need to order and replace that overlay unless you can reuse the original one as shown in that repair video.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.
