    Smile Kenmore Range F10 error

    Model Number: 790.96123402
    Brand: Sears Kenmore
    Age: 1-5 years

    I have a Kenmore model #790.96123402 Electric Range that displayed a F10 error while using the oven. I see that the code may mean Runaway Temperature (I saw a code list on another blog?). Does anyone know what needs to be replaced/repaired to correct the problem? The range was installed by my builder 3 years ago and I was not offered an extended warranty. Please help!

    I would first pull your range out from the wall, unplug your range, then take off the back access panel and ohm your oven sensor.

    It should ohm out at 1100 ohms at room temperature.

    If that checks good, then your control board is the problem.

    Here's the oven sensor probe for your model:

    Here's your control board:

    Default Kenmore #790.96123402 Range F30 error

    The F10 Error is fixed and now (months later) it gives a F30 error. Any suggestions on repair?

    F30 - OPEN PROBE CONNECTION

    Check all your wire connectors/connections in the back of your range, you'll need to unplug or turn the breaker off to your range, then take off the back access panel, thats where most of your wiring is located.

    Check your oven sensor probe connection as well:

    Hello. I have the same code, and bought the sensor. It didn't help, so know I'm thinking the control board is the culprit. When I turn the oven on, say 380 deg. F., the broiler comes on (top of oven) instead of the bottom element. It then heats way up (burning smell) and finally faults out. Do the experts here think this still sounds like the control board, or could there be something else I need to check? Thanks for any and all help!

    It is 790.96119409. I found it here: bafiltersupply.com/Genuine-Frigidaire-Oven-Stove-Range-Electronic-Control-Clock-316557118_p_660.html for half of the price Sears wanted.

    Yes, but read their return policy, you can't get a refund if it doesn't fix the problem.

    When you order parts through our site you have a 365 day warranty on all parts whether it fixes it or not.

    Here's the clock/oven control assembly for your model you can order here:
