SOURCE: I have a kenmore electric range model #790.9268.

Check for busted power cord, power switch, and
finally the heater coils. This is for a continuity
check using the multitester, on all the three items. That is the sequence in checking for the
defect. I assume that you can do these things.
If not, you have no other option but to call for a technician.

Frigidaire stove
(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.

SOURCE: what is error code F10

Tiger.......I have a Kenmore Model 790 as well, and am getting the F10 Error code. It says in the manual that it is either the RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) or the EOC (Electronic Oven Control), but I am trying to find troubleshooting tips myself, as I do not want to pay $130 for a tech to come to my house. I know you can press the oven (off) button to stop the beeping momentarily, but the manual also says that the oven may need to be reprogrammed.....which is what I'm trying to find how to do. Sorry I couldn't give you a quick fix solution, but I'm am still searching.

We have a Kenmore model C970-440994 and we had an F10 code appear and now the broiler stays on all the time, what is the problem?

Please shut off the circuit breaker or unscrew the fuse, or somehow disconnect this range from the electrical power source, or you may very quickly have a fire.
3 Likely answers to your problem.
1) The broiler control switch has shorted out inside, it has "burned up".
2) Two of the wires, or more, have shorted out inside the range and are touching, or have melted together.
3) Wires inside the wall socket are touching or have shorted out.
God bless your efforts.

How do get rid of F10 which is on the window of my Kenmore stove

The F10 error means that the high temperature sensor is reporting a runaway temperature and shut down to avoid a potential fire. Try unplugging the stove or tripping the circuit breaker to reset the code.

If the error recurs, unplug the stove (or turn off the circuit breaker) again. Look at the broiler and bake elements with a flashlight. If it has any damage (breaks, char, melting), you will need to replace the element. Check where the elements connect to the oven and replace them if there is any charring on the back wall.

If the elements are undamaged, you need to check the wiring to identify if the problem is at the elements, the high temperature sensor, wiring or the control board. You will need to access the wiring from the back of the stove. Disconnect the wires to the heating elements. Then disconnect the wiring connections at the high temperature sensor and the control board. Without a model number, I can't be completely sure of the resistance that should be seen at various points. Please post a comment with the model number of the stove and I'll try to confirm the expected and faulty resistance values. Most likely, the resistance should be under 50 ohms but above zero between the left and right contacts of the elements and the violet wires in the wiring harness at the control board. The high temperature sensor should probably have a resistance between 1,000 and 1,200 ohms. If the resistance is high, you'll need to replace the appropriate parts. (Note: if the wiring at the control board gives a reading similar to the resistance of the high temperature sensor, the control board is the likely suspect.)

I hope this helps. If your stove is under warranty, contact Sears/Kenmore to fix the issue. If you aren't comfortable testing the wiring, contact Kenmore for a service call.

The F10 error code means that the computer thinks a button on the touchpad is stuck. Sometimes this can be resolved by making sure the touchpad connector fits tight into the control board. The F10 code can be cleared by pushing CANCEL/OFF. If it returns the touchpad needs to be replaced .

I have electric range/burner elements/stainless steel/3 yrs old/can't see model # . I am getting F10 code. Thanks for assistance

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

Runaway Temperature.
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.
2. (F11, 12 & 13) Disconnect power, wait 30 seconds and reapply power.
3. (F11, 12 & 13) If fault returns upon power-up, replace EOC.

I have a smooth top Kenmore electric freestanding range model # 790.96212404 and it keeps having an F10 code. I know it has to do with the sensory, is this easy to replace?

Hello- The code described- F10 - is not included in any manufacturers error/fault code listing. F 1 is the closest listed code, showing control failure. F3 and E1 codes are for thermal sensors. If you replace 25$ sensor and still have troubles, most likely it's board. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed- Thanks- ED

Kenmore oven error code f10

on that type of range F10 indicates a problem within the electronic control, but it could possible be caused by a faulty temperature sensor.

I would recommend service from a technician
