Kenmore Ovens - Answered Questions & Fixed Issues

Self cleaning operates at a very high temperature compared with cooking, so sometimes they have a solenoid or bimetal mechanism to lock the door so you don't inhale noxious fumes or start fire during cleaning. It is supposed to be disengaged ate end of cleaning when things cool down, so it sounds like it may be stuck? See if you can figure out the lock mechanism and try opening it by gently shaking the door while prying with a knife. Search online for a spare parts diagram from the model number and that may give you clues on how to get it open.

Could be the board, the element or the thermostat. My advice is to call a technician out. You should have 110 volts at the element as soon as you turn it on.

Same thing happened to our Kenmore range and I found a solution on the web about fixing this problem on a fridgedaire range. It was to hold down the clock button for an extended time ~15 sec. It worked for our kenmore and hopefully for yours too.

From the information you have given, line 1 is shorted to ground or you have a wiring issue from the power source. You will want to be very careful as this sounds like a situation where you could easily get a shock. I would start by checking my power source with a volt meter test line 1 to line 2 = 240V, line 1 to ground = 120V, line 2 to ground = 120V. If this is all correct a good visual inspection of the oven wiring and circuit boards, if it is not correct contact an electrician. If nothing is found on the visual inspection it is time to start testing and with what you are describing the problem is probably in the main board though it could be in any of the components.

Could be the door is not locked or the door window guard is not pulled up, or the sensors for these are defective.

Communication between the user interface board and the touch panel can't be initiated Disconnect power to the unit, wait 30 seconds and restore power. If the error returns, disconnect electrical power and check the wire harness connections between the user interface control board and the touch. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. If you just replaced the user interface control board or the touch panel, you may have used the wrong part. Use your range model number to check the part number and install the correct replacement part. If you didn't replace a part before the code appeared and the wire harness connections are okay, replace the touch panel. If the problem continues, replace the user interface control board.

Try unplugging for 5 minutes

does the element get warm and then no heat? I would just replace it, also I would ensure that all the connections are clean tight.

Your Kenmore oven has a built-in fault detector. When the oven detects an issue, the display screen on the control panel will flash a fault code. The F10 fault code on your Kenmore oven indicates that the thermal protector on your oven's control unit, or microcontroller (MCU), has overheated. If the MCU overheats, the computer stops all motor functions. Several items on your oven could cause the thermal protector to overheat. Therefore, you must troubleshoot the F10 code to determine why it appeared on your display panel.
