Why is my Kenmore oven displaying the F10 message when I try to use it?

I have a Kenmore range model 79096113409. What does the F10 error code indicate?

My Kenmore over heated twice(575 & 450+) with the F10 code. The broiler element was red hot. The stove was working fine, and the oven work fine until two days later. The sensor checked out at 1098 ohms. I decided to disconnect the Broiler relay. The stove & oven are working okay for now. Is this an okay fix? Rich

I think the answer to this question is that you have a problem in your wiring harness. If you read the resistance at the probe at 1100 ohms, then the resistance may only be slightly lower with the wiring harness connected. Because you have a noticeable difference of 765 ohms, your wiring harness is not being as good a conductor as it should.
