Question about Kenmore Ovens

1 Answer

My model is a C970-440981 Kenmore Elite oven. Its electronic control is # 316462 823. There is an error code: F10 and a message: door lock and the cooling fan is working. There is no possibility to operate the oven neither to have display of commands of the oven. The F10 error code appears when trying to operate the oven. On the contrary the top is working. I want to know if it is a software problem how it can be solved by a kind of reset ( by the buttons of the oven on power on or by a reset button on the electronic module or other way ) or if it is an hardware problem that can be solved by changing or reparing the electronic module and who is selling or reparing those modules in Canada.

Hi, the error code F-10 simply means you have a faulty Clock/Control board assembly which you need to change because it cannot be reset.
You can get the part from this LINK

Kenmore Elite Gas Oven f1 message


Hi

Error code F1 means that an error with the keypad has occurred. Usually it happens due to loose ribbon cable on the keypad or the electronic control assembly itself going bad. To resolve this issue first, disconnect the power to unit and then gain access to the back of the clock assembly (Electronic Range Control/ERC). Now unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC, it would be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide and make sure that the cable is not broken and nothing is shorted on the keypad. After this is done insert the cable back and then plug the unit back to check. If the error is still there then the electronic control board should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

F10 error message oven 790.9612


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Error code F10 is displayed due to electronic oven control failure and the only way to solve this problem is by replacing the control board which is bad. Sorry for the bad news but hope you understand... Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My Kenmore electric stove, model number 790.96122407 displays error code F10 after preheating for 10-15 minutes.


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.

Kenmore oven error code f10


on that type of range F10 indicates a problem within the electronic control, but it could possible be caused by a faulty temperature sensor.

I would recommend service from a technician

Have a Kenmore Elite oven. When I try to turn on any of the heating elements, I receive an F5 error. Any suggestions? Thanks much.


The E1- F5 error is a door lock error.

The control (TIMER) has likely failed in this instance - BUT...

Sometimes when you disconnect power to a range and reconnect it the electronic range control gets confused.
You should disconnect power again for 15 seconds and reconnect and see if that helps.

If it doesn't cure the E1- F5 error hold the bake button in until E0- F2 appears in the display.
This is the error for a stuck button on the keypad and is the way to clear the memory of the electronic range control.

Sometimes these work, but if the control has failed it won't make any difference.

Beeping F 10


Hello
Welcome to fixya.com

You r answer to the F10 code is:

The F10 error code indicates a runaway oven temperature. This would indicate that the oven temperature sensor or the electronic control has failed. According to the service manual you need to unplug the range & after restoring power the oven continues to overheat you will need to replace the electronic oven control.
This a job for a hands on tech!

F3 and F2 Error Codes


If hitting clear/cancel won't clear it try unplugging and then plug it back in. My guess is the oven control is bad. Here are the fault codes for this model.

Failure
Code
Condition Check/Repair F0 or F1 Failed transistor in control If code cannot be cancelled, replace the Electronic Range Control (ERC) or touch pad F2 Oven over temp - exceeded 590F with door in unlocked position or 990F with door locked If actual temp condition occurred, look for welded relay contacts or high resistance connection or any cause in the oven temperature sensor circuit F3 Open oven temperature sensor circuit Measure oven temperature sensor circuit at oven temperature sensor (should be approx 1100 ohms at room temp); check for cut or pinched wire or loss of contact F4 Shorted oven temperature sensor circuit Same as above; check for melted connector or both leads shorted to ground F8 Component failure within Electronic Range Control (ERC) effecting temp processing circuits Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC) F9 Problem with door lock circuit such as pinched wire between Electronic Range Control (ERC) and door lock switch Check wiring and test operation of switch
