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.

Also
Sometimes shutting off the circuit breaker that the range or oven is connected to for 30 seconds will clear the fault, error or function code.

Also
F3 or F30 means that there may be a problem with the oven sensor.
Your oven sensor may need to be replaced.

The front panel keeps showing F10 Err message ?? And it won't stop beeping, any idea what it could be??


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.

My kenmore electric range model 790 is displaying a F10 code which i believe it means it's overheating. can you help with this problem


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.

What is error code F10 on model #790 electric range?


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.
