Question and Answers

Q:

need to know prices of parts - electronic control board, oven temperature sensor, tried to find them on the diagram of the stove but only says switch, etc

A:

The electronic oven control board (called Clock/Timer in the parts diagram) is part 316418702. That part is priced at $207.33. The temperature sensor probe is part 316217001. That part is priced at $38.25.

You can order those parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

I recommend that you check the resistance of that oven temperature sensor probe first. That component should measure around 1080 ohms at room temperature. Unplug the range to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.

If the sensor resistance is okay, I recommend that you plug it back in and check the resistance through the entire sensor circuit from the control board (with the range still unplugged ). The sensor circuit plugs into the control board through violet wires. If the resistance through the circuit is bad, then you have a wiring failure or a bad disconnect plug at the sensor. If the resistance through the sensor circuit is okay, then you likely have a bad control board. This assumes that you are seeing the F10 code at room temperature.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

You can check the resistance of the elements using a volt/ohm meter. If you don't have that type of meter, you can usually buy one at your local Sears or hardware store for less than $20. To check an element, UNPLUG the range and remove the lower back panel. You will see the wires that connect to the elements coming out of the back of the range. The bake element will have yellow and orange wires. The broil element will have blue and orange wires. You can check the elements and wiring by pulling one wire off and measuring the resistance through the element. You should measure between 10 and 40 ohms through the leads of the element. You can also check for a short to the metal cabinet. With one wire still attached, measure the resistance between the lead with the wire removed and a bare (non-painted) spot on the metal cabinet in the immediate area. You should measure Ol (open load or infinite resistance). You can check the other lead in the same manner. This will check the element and the wiring for a short fo the cabinet ground. If you detect a resistance (such as 20 ohms) during this test from one of the leads, then you have a short in that element or wiring. If the elements measure normal resistance and you detect no short to the metal cabinet then you should not have to replace any of the elements. I hope that this additional information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Q:

kenmore 79096612404 oven error code f10 only broiler element heats, think bottom hidden element has burned out?

A:

The broil element constantly heating indicates that you have a failure in the electronic oven control board in the console. The F10 code indicates that the control detects the over-temperature condition caused by that heating element constantly heating. You will need to replace the electronic control board to fix this problem. Also, check the broil element for damage (with the range still unplugged). There is a chance that a short in the broil element damaged the control board. If the broil element is okay, then replacing the electronic oven control board (part 316418702) should fix this problem.

If you want to repair this range yourself, you can order the control board from the Sears PartsDirect website.

Remove the upper back panel (with the range still unplugged ) to access and replace the control board.

A failed hidden bake element in the bottom of the oven should not have caused the broil element to heat constantly unless the bake element shorted out and damaged the control board. You can pull out the bottom oven panel to examine the hidden bake element (with the range still unplugged ). There are thumb screws at the back of the bottom panel inside the oven cavity that you can remove. Pull that bottom panel to the rear of the oven cavity slightly and then lift up on the panel and remove from the oven. You can then examine the hidden bake element. If the hidden bake element is not damaged, then you will probably fix your failure by replacing the electronic oven control board.

These tips may help you resolve this oven problem 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 .
