The F10 indicates that the electronic oven control board senses a runaway temperature condition in the oven through the oven sensor circuit.
This can be caused by a faulty oven temperature sensor probe or a failed electronic control board.
Oven temperature is detected by the control board as it monitors the resistance through the oven temperature sensor circuit.
You could have a failed oven temperature sensor, a wiring harness failure, an open thermal switch or a failed electronic oven control board that would cause this problem.
The first component to check would normally be the oven temperature sensor probe.
If you have a volt/ohm meter, you can shut off the breaker for the range and remove the screws that mount this sensor to the back wall of the oven.
Carefully pull the wire harness into the oven cavity until you get to the wire harness disconnect plug.
You should have enough slack to pull it this far into the oven.
Disconnect the sensor but do not let the wire harness retract back through the back wall of the oven or it will be hard to reconnect.
Measure the resistance of the oven temperature sensor with your volt/ohm meter. At room temperature, the resistance should measure around 1100 ohms.
The resistance chart is shown in the image below.

If the resistance is above 2200 ohms at room temperature, then the sensor probe is causing the F10 error code and will need to be replaced.

You can order a new sensor probe from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the sensor is 316217002.

If the resistance is normal, then one of the other causes mentioned above is producing your F10 code.
You would need to access the electronic oven control board (Timer) in the console and check the resistance at the sensor circuit connection to the control board as the next step in troubleshooting this problem.

My Kenmore Elite Electric Range displayed F10 while baking a pie. There was smoke coming from the oven and I couldn't get the code to clear until we disconnected power. What does F10 mean and do I need to...


Hi,

The F10 code indicates that the main control keypad has a stuck circuit, to repair this, you would have to have the main control replaced.

The oven warms up and then starts beeping and flashes f10 err.


The "F10" oven error code means "Runaway temperature".
If you have technical skills, you can try to diagnose and repair yourself, otherwise, call a qualified appliance repairman.

Locate the temperature probe wire plug at the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) and measure its resistance. It’s supposed to be about 1100 Ohms at the room temperature.

If the reading is wrong, replace the oven temperature probe.

If the reading is correct, replace the EOC.

Kenmore Elite Range/Oven problem.


We had this problem as well, our's locked and we were not able to unlock it.

We found that holding down the stop/clear button on he bottom right of the key pad for 3 consecutive seconds releases the lock.

The locked oven wording will blink for about a minute and then the oven is released completely.

So frustrating...I accidently hit the option while cooking. Talk about panic. I needed to use the oven.

Kenmore Elite Range/Oven problem.


My kenmore glass top stainless steel slide in range has an error message code F93. I was attempting to allow my range to self clean when this err message appeared. Now I can't get the door unlocked. Help?? We've had a lot of problems with this range. We've had the service tech come out probably 4-5 times for different things. I think I got a lemon. It just turn a year old-we extended the warranty . I've called to complain but I got no help. They said it had to be for the same problem each time. Even the tech said the oven was a lemon but he couldn't help us. Any suggestions?
