Question and Answers

Q:

I have an error code (F10) being displayed on my range model number 79094229409 what does error code F10 mean and what part do I need to correct this problem

A:

Thank you for your question.

Not being able to use your oven can be very inconvenient.

The F10 code can mean one to two problems.

The first one is the RTD oven temperature sensor probe.

It is the pencil like probe mounted to the back wall of the oven.

The other possible cause is the Electronic Oven Control.

If you feel comfortable with, and have some mechanical ability we can check the sensor for the correct ohm reading.

  • If you have a volt/ohm meter set it to the RX1 ohm scale and checks the resistance across the two sensor wires for approximately 1100 ohms at 75 to 80 degrees.

  • You will need to remove the sensor by removing the back panel on the range to get to the terminals.

  • First REMOVE POWER to the range.

  • Pull the range away from the wall and remove the lower back panel. Locate the sensor harness plug and disconnect and with the meter probes, with one in each connection check for 1100 ohms at 75 to 80 degrees plus or minus 5%. If it is not in this range it will have to be replaced.

If the sensor checks correctly the problem is in the Electronic Oven Control, and it will have to be replaced.

Note: On some models you can get to the sensor from the oven cavity without having to pull the range out.

  • To get to the Oven control you will need to remove the upper back cover off the range and locate and remove the four screws that secure the control to the range. Remove the touch pad ribbon from the control and other wire harness connectors and install the new control.
I will give you a couple of pictures to look at below.

The part number for the sensor is; 316217001 and the part number for the control is; 316557108 and you can purchase the one you need from;Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this information will help you solve your range problem.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

baking cycle on oven does not come on it triggers broiler to come on

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.
