Found this on ShopYourWay.com for a model 790.9611. The F10 error code indicates a runaway oven temperature. The only way to reset the range, is to disconnect it from the outlet or go to the main circuit breaker of the home and switch it off for 20-30 minutes, then restore the power. If disconnecting the power for a few minutes does not help, the EOC (electronic oven control) may need to be replaced. Follow these steps to replace the EOC:

Unplug the range.

Remove the rear access panel from the console.

Write down the wiring locations, or a digital camera may come in handy for this.

Remove the wiring being careful not to pull on the wires - pull on the lugs.

Remove the mounting screws that hold the control board in place.

The new board may not come with the overlay (this is the plastic piece the covers the front of the board with all the printing on it. This can be reused. Carefully remove the overlay and place it on the new board.

Install new control board using care not to handle the board components as much as possible.

Reconnect all wiring.

Reinstall back panel.

This may not help you. Sorry. You may have to call a Technician.

SOURCE: My Kenmore range model C970-628091 keeps beeping and flashing an F1 or F3 error code

Fridgetech is right. It's the temperature sensor. I had the same problem, but I was getting the F3 and F2 errors when attempting to preheat the oven.
A R Marshall said that he replaced the sensor but he still got the same F3 error. That happened to me too! It worked for a few weeks, then it began to malfunction again. It finally started showing preheated as soon as the oven was turned on, but never heated at all. One night at 3AM, the error code and beeper went off while we were sleeping! That happened on several occasions at various times of day, and it was necessary to kill the power to stop it. The power could then be restored and the error would stop.
Ours is a Hotpoint range (made by GE). It's my understanding that most ranges have the same or similar error codes.
The sensor was $85.00 at the parts store, but I got it on line for about $60.00 including shipping. The instructions said to strip the wires and then twist them together with wire nuts. But the new sensor had a plug that fit so I used it, and it worked for a short while.
As I looked through the problems and possible solutions, someone said look for burnt wires. So I opened it up and looked but there was nothing like that. Then I remembered the instructions that said to hard wire, so I examined the plug which seemed to have one short wire inside. I plugged it back in and tested with the same negative results. Now suspecting the plug I cut off both sides, stripped the wires and hard wired using two small wire nuts. It immediatly began working normally!
Something is wrong with the plug connector.
Try cutting out the plug and hard wiring before ordering a new part. But if you need a new part, eliminate the plug!
May God bless you and keep you safe!

SOURCE: Kenmore oven control beeps and shows F1

According to Kenmore's list of error codes, F1 means EOC (Electronic Oven Control) failure, and the solution is to replace the EOC. You might look into that. The part itself costs around $80, as far as I can see.

SOURCE: we have a f10 error code on our electric range

F10 is thermal runaway. The RTD is most likely bad. Open the oven door and look in the upper corners you will see a little metal rod protruding from the back of the oven, this is the RTD or resistive temperature device. A local parts store should have these.

SOURCE: Problem codes for self-cleaning ranges

My experience (Kenmore Ultra-bake Model 665-72002102) was that E1 F5 meant an error with the oven lock switch. In our case, the latch was partly stuck from food or other debris. Just moving the latch back and forth loosened the scale that was making it stick, and it worked again.

SOURCE: What does the errror code F90 mean?

F90 Maximum oven door unlock time exceeded.
F91 Maximum oven door unlock attempts exceeded.
F92 Maximum oven door open time exceeded.
F93 Maximum oven door lock time exceeded.
F94 Maximum oven door lock attempts exceeded.


1. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check the wiring between EOC & Lock Motor Micro Switch.

2. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Replace the Motor Door Latch assembly if necessary.

3. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check for binding of the Latch Cam, Lock Motor Rod & Lock Motor Cam.

4. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check to see if Lock Motor Coil is open. If open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

5. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Lock Motor continuously runs - if Micro Switch is open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

6. (F92, 93 & 94) Check oven door Light Switch - if open, replace Switch.

7. If all situations above do not solve problem, replace EOC.


F90 is a door lock code, Try this...
unplug the range.
wait 1 minute.
turn the range back on,
then while holding in on the oven door.
start another self clean.
wait 2 minutes.
then cancel the self clean.

do not release the door until the door lock light goes out.

How do I make it shut up?


You probably have an error conditon. Is anything displayed on the control panel? If it's displaying "PF", that means "Power Failure". Press the STOP or CANCEL button, then set the time. That should stop the beeping (if it's displaying PF). if any other error code is displaying, I would need to know your range model number, and the code that was being displayed.

F10 err resulting in beeping


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 .

I am not sure what model of Kenmore Gas Range I have but I get an F10 error and unable to turn on the oven.


Hello Edgar,
The F10 error code means that function key (bake/broil/clean ect) on the touchpad is defective. Sometimes just making sure that the ribbon cable on the touchpad is connected tight into the control board.
The error code could be cleared by pushing CANCEL/OFF button..if error code returns the touchpad would 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.

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

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.
