Code F10 with steady noise

On Kenmore Electric Range Model 790.9081. What is it and how do I turn if off when it makes that awful noise? I typically hit everything often enough until it goes away; it then comes back a few times after 1 min, or so until it finally stops either by itself or because I finally inadvertently did the right thing.

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.

Getting F10 on oven


Good Morning Kathy, this is Z. Thank you for allowing me to assist you!

If you are receiving an error code F10, it typically indicates that your Frigidaire range (FEF352) has detected an issue with the runaway temperature (overheating). Let's try reprogramming your range by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. This usually clears most false error codes. I suggest waiting approximately ten minutes and then turn on your range. If the error code does not clear, I would recommend contacting a professional to proceed further. Most likely the EOC (Electronic Oven Control) will need replacing. Hopes this help!

Electrolux oven f10 error code


Hello Mary, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Typically error code F10 indicates your range has detected an issue with the runaway temperature (overheating). Let's try reprogramming your appliance by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn your range on. Usually this will clear most false error codes. If issue persists, at this moment I would suggest contacting a professional to proceed further. Most likely the RTD Probe (Resistance Temperature Detector) or the EOC (electronic oven control) will need replacing. Hope this helps!

I get F7 10 error code


Hi Claude, thank you for your question! Could the error code possibly be F1 or F10? Typically error code F10 indicates that the range has detected an issue with the runaway temperature (overheating). Try reprogramming the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn the range on. Usually this will clear most false error codes. If issue persists, I would recommend contacting a professional to proceed further for an accurate diagnosis. Most likely the EOC (electronic oven control) will need replacing. Hopes this information proves to be helpful.

KENMORE ELECTRIC RANGE MODEL NUMBER 790.9621340C HAS F10 ERROR CODE WHEN HEATING UP OVEN TO REQUIRED COOKING TEMPERATURE


Hello,
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 .

The error code could be cleared by pushing CANCEL/OFF button..if error code returns the touchpad would need to be replaced.

Sorry to read about your problem
Your F10 code means Runaway Temperature and f30 means open probe connection. try this and see problem comes back.
1. Unplug the unit or turn the circuit breaker off for 60 seconds.
2. Now, restore the power to the appliance by plugging it back in or turning the circuit breaker back on.
3. Check to see if the error code is still displayed on the range.

Note: General information for resolution to this problem, is based on information provided in question. Contact certified technician if problem persist. Sears Repair 1-800-469-4663

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
