Kenmore ovens are equipped with an error-checking system that monitors the various components of the oven while it is in use. If the system detects a problem with any of the components, it will display an error code on the oven's control panel. The F10 error code indicates a problem with the oven's temperature sensor.

There are several reasons why the temperature sensor might trigger the F10 error code. The most common reason is that the sensor is not properly calibrated. If the sensor is not calibrated, it will not be able to accurately measure the oven's internal temperature. This can cause the oven to overheat or underheat, which can lead to food that is either burned or not cooked properly.

Another reason why the temperature sensor might trigger the F10 error code is if it is damaged or defective. If the sensor is damaged, it will not be able to accurately measure the oven's internal temperature. This can again lead to food that is either burned or not cooked properly.

If the oven's temperature sensor is triggering the F10 error code, it is important to have the sensor repaired or replaced as soon as possible. In the meantime, the oven can be used, but it will need to be monitored closely to ensure that the food does not become either burned or undercooked.
