What does the F10 Error code mean on my Kenmore Electric range model number 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.
If you do not feel comfortable replacing the EOC yourself, I recommend scheduling service at 1-800-424-2047.
