Question and Answers


I have a kenmore electric range and it keeps on flashing f10 what does that mean


The F10 code indicates that the clock control board in the console detects a runaway temperature (out of range high and increasing temperature). Your details seem to imply that you are seeing this code when the oven is off. This can be caused by a bad oven temperature sensor probe or a failed clock control board. The normal troubleshooting for this problem involves checking the oven temperature sensor probe first. You can check that sensor problem with a volt/ohm meter as shown in this brief repair video: Oven Sensor Testing . You can unplug the range and access that sensor probe as shown in this video: Oven Sensor Replacement . You don't have to remove that sensor to test it. Just unplug the wire harness connection. You should measure around 1091 ohms +/- 6 ohms at room temperature (75 degrees). If the resistance of that sensor is high, then that component will need to be replaced (part 316490000). You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. If the sensor is okay, I recommend that you plug that sensor back in and access the clock control board in the console as shown in this video: Range Clock Control Replacement . With the range still unplugged you can remove the 15 pin plug and check the resistance through the entire sensor circuit (connected through the violet wires) from the clock control board. You should measure the same resistance as you did directly at the sensor unless you have a wire harness failure. If you measure high resistance through that circuit even though the sensor was okay, then I recommend that you check the wire harness for damage. The most common cause of a wire harness failure is a bad disconnect plug at the sensor. You can cut that plug out of the circuit and connect those wires using ceramic wire nuts if necessary. If the resistance through that entire sensor circuit is okay, then you will need to replace that clock control board (part 316557118). You may also need the overlay unless you can reuse the original one as shown in that video.

These tips should help you fix this F10 failure yourself. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you get to a point where you want to have a service technician diagnose and repair the range, you can schedule one through this link: Sears Home Services .
