Hi, it sounds like your door hinge has gone bad. This is the most common problem with the door. You should be able to lift the door straight up and off the hinge. Then try and move the hinge with your hand. I can get you part information if this is the case.
I hope this helps. Pleaselet me know.

F2 and a beeping noise just replaced the 350 degree sign on my oven as I was baking supper. What's up?


This is a fault code for the oven temperature sensor.
The temperature probe is secured in the top of the inside back wall of the oven. Unplug the range to disconnect electrical power. Open the oven door and remove the racks. Remove the screws that secure the oven temperature sensor probe in the back wall of the oven. Carefully pull the sensor into the oven until you get to the wire harness disconnect plug. Unplug the sensor probe. Do not let the wire harness **** back through the opening in the back of the oven. Check the resistance of the probe with a volt/ohm meter. At room temperature, you should measure about 1100 ohms of resistance. If the resistance is bad, replacing the oven temperature sensor probe. This part can be purchased at www.appliancehelponline.com

Kenmore Elite Range Model 790.4671 F10 error is flashing. Cooktop & oven don't work after running a self-cleaning.Oven door is locked and won't open.


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.

How do I install the oven door on a Kenmore Electric range?


Might be the same as most I've seen. Pull the metal arms down on both sides to where they stay in place as if the door was open to the broil position and just slide the door on.

Kenmore oven, mesh coil on oven door.


Yes you can replace it. It is a gasket that seals the oven when it is being used. It is heat resistant and vital to the operation of the oven. It is like running and A/C with the windows open.

Oven showing F2 fault


tire, if your model starts with 911. the code stands for an overtemperature condition. I would start with the temp sensor, this is the probe inside the oven cavity, part # 334300. You can ohm it out, should be around 1100 ohms at room temp. This is for model number starting with 911. Catriver..post back.

Self cleaning oven directions


Press the self-clean button.  The panel becomes blank(---), then press the up arrow( ^ ).  The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning.  Good luck, ya'll!
