Re: oven overheats and gives a f10 code
The F10 error code indicates a runaway temperature condition. For this type of problem you will need to have the temperature sensor checked & replaced if needed. The other possibility would be the control board has failed.

Your Kenmore oven has a built-in fault detector. When the oven detects an issue, the display screen on the control panel will flash a fault code. The F10 fault code on your Kenmore oven indicates that the thermal protector on your oven's control unit, or microcontroller (MCU), has overheated. If the MCU overheats, the computer stops all motor functions. Several items on your oven could cause the thermal protector to overheat. Therefore, you must troubleshoot the F10 code to determine why it appeared on your display panel.
Inspect the area around and behind the oven to ensure you did not place the oven next to a source of heat, such as a register vent or other appliance that becomes very hot. If this is the case, you must remove the oven from the heat source to prevent the issue from occurring again.
Inspect the oven to ensure all vents on the oven are open and unblocked. This includes heat vents that vent to the outside of the home. Remove any clogs from the oven's venting and check to see if the code reappears.
Inspect all of the wiring harnesses that connect to the MCU. Remove the back cover from the control panel with a screwdriver. Look for disconnected harnesses or any harnesses with black residue on them. This indicates an issue with the MCU. Remove the bolts that secure the MCU to the control panel housing and then replace the MCU with a new one. Reconnect all of the harnesses and retest.
Hello, The F10 error code means that was a runaway over heating that occured in the oven. The things that could cause the over to overheat to the exterme of the F10 error code reqirements is during self clean normal cleaning temp. IF it wasn't cleaned just before the F10 error code,first the oven temtature sensor needs to be replaced then if F10 comes back after the sensor is replaced the computer control board needs to be replaced.
An F10 code indicates a "runaway temperature". Check RTD Sensor Probe and replace if necessary. If oven is overheating, disconnect power. If oven continues to overheat when the power is reapplied, replace EOC. Severe overheating may require the entire oven to be replaced should damage be extensive.
With an Ohm-meter, take off the back of the oven panel, and you can get to the wires on the oven sensor. They should ohm out to 1070 to1100 to be good. If the oven never cut off, and the bake element never shut off, you could have a clock control board problem.
The F10 error code indicates a runaway temperature condition. If your oven is overheating, unplug the power cord for a few minutes. When plugged back in if the oven is still overheating, you will need to have the temp sensor & control checked.
Hi Thanks for using FixYa. F10 error in your Kenmore means temperature runaway. This issue is caused due to failed oven temperature sensor and/or the control board that has gone bad. To check what has gone bad you’ll need to take off the rear panel off the oven and test the sensor which is located behind this panel. If the reading is more then 1100ohms then it should be replaced, if the sensor tests fine then it is the control board that has gone bad and should be replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
This clicking sound.. If it is coming from the control panel area could be indicative of a relay that is malfunctioning. For giggles try the oven on just broil. See if the upper element comes on and stays on, or if it too shuts down. If it stays on then you most likely have a bad control board. If it shuts off like the bake element and does not come back on, I would carefully inspect your power cord and cord connections as well as the range outlet. Good luck!
"F10: Runaway Temperature. SUGGESTED CORRECTIVE ACTION 1. (F10 only) Check RTD Sensor Probe & replace if necessary. If oven is overheating, disconnect power. If oven continues to overheat when the power is reapplied, replace EOC. Severe overheating may require the entire oven to be replaced should damage be extensive."
The F10 error code indicates a runaway oven temperature. This would
indicate that the oven temperature sensor or the electronic control has
failed. According to the service manual you need to unplug the range
& after restoring power the oven continues to overheat you will
need to replace the electronic oven control. This a job for a hands on tech!

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.
