Kenmore Elec Range "Fire"...code f10

Have 4 year old model 790-96114. Had apple pie in at 400* for about 20 minutes when fire started. Since out of warranty, Sears experts at 800 number wouldn't help. Someone at a Sears store said it could be the electronic control panel or the oven temperature sensor. Any help?

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.

I wouldn't. The plastic will give off some very acrid, toxic fumes if you try to self-clean it. First use a damp sponge to wipe up the baking soda. After that, you might be able to turn on the oven just a little bit to soften the plastic residue, then carefully, use a putty knife to scrape up the plastic residue from the oven floor.

Error code E2 F2


As you are aware the technical manual for your range doesn't show an error code of E2 F2 but all of the F2 codes pertain to the touchpad of the range.
Can you clear the E2 F3 by pressing the cancel button? If not, shut off the power to the range for a few minutes and see if the error code goes away. If the error code remains You should unplug the range from the wall and remove the back panel for the control area. Disconnect the ribbon between the touchpad and the electronic control, clean the end of it and reconnect it.
If this doesn't repair the problem you will need to replace the touchpad on the range. The parts diagram lists two touchpads, they are part numbers 8273575- bisque, and 8272702- white.
E2 relates to an overheating condition. Quite possibly related to your touchpad issue. I'd try cleaning the contacts and if that doesn't work...Up to you at that point!

Good luck

Sears Kenmore Elite Oven 790.99123405 Caught Fire!!!


The PF indicates a power failure.
The range experienced a loss of electrical power.
This code is usually cleared by pressing the CLEAR/OFF button.
If you continue to get this code, you may need to unplug the range and check the wiring connections of the power cord on the back of the range.

Range top caught fire


Hello vyoshikawa,
Welcome to fixya,

You said, the igniter had started by itself!


Please , do not play around with this issue!
You can try to pull the plug on this. And use service to diagnose this. We do not want you or your family to have a fire in the middle of the night.
If you need to use the range till they come and diagnose it, pull the plug when you are finished.
Pulling the plug for 5 minutes will perhaps reset the system, BUT this is no replacement for getting service in this case!
Let me know what happens.
Please remember to leave a rating!
Huuum,

Kenmore range


You said, you have a 12 year old Kenmore Range. Smooth-top, over which only 3 eyes now work.
And you've lived with this for a couple of years. But now the bottom element burned out.
It sent sparks flying as it glowed brightly and released fire as this bright spot moved around from one side of the element to the other and finally went out.
You would like to replace whatever is needed.
Please help determine what is needed.

This is the old model # PLT083-2. You see it inside the door.

My advice is that after 12 years and a number of failures. especially the sparks!
You should replace this range! Do not put good money into bad!
I believe you deserve the pleasure and comfort of a new range before the holidays!

Here is a report I just read !
I believe it will help you decide and you may find it very interesting!

Repair or replace you appliances?

When to pull the plug on your old Appliance
It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your appliance,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.


If your appliance is under warranty or less than four years old
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that appliances under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your appliance is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new appliance.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive appliance
six or more years old .
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a appliances you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

I believe I may have solved your problem, with some Profesional sound advice!

If you have any questions feel free to ask!
