In Topic: Kenmore 790.94213405 gives code F10

Related, but separate, to the question of the F10, is what is the best way to check the actual temperature inside the oven? I have a non-contact thermometer, but where should I measure the temp? (On a pan in the middle of the oven?) Or is a fancy calibrated Samurai master thermometer a requirement here?

I will double-check the resistance reading at the EOC. Oddly, the oven was reliably (sic) showing F10 on Sunday. After unplugging/plugging the sensor to measure it, the oven hasn't thrown this condition. I'm wondering whether the sensor's wire connection is part/all of the problem, as suggested by this discussion on appliances from the same manufacturer.

 

If it's the EOC, I'm surprised that such a thing would fail. Is this common?

Sensor reads 1084 ohms at 74F room temp, so that looks good.

 

I also see I lost my "Merit Apprentice Appliantologist" classification. :(


In Topic: Am I nuts to replace a smooth-top fancy pants range with an old school coil one?

So, how is it that these smoothtops have taken over? The people I've spoken to who like them note only that they like the look, the ease of cleaning the smooth top, or its ability, when cool, to be used as extra counter space. I've not heard a single person rave about the smooth top's abilities as a cooking appliance.

I'd love a natural gas stove, but there are no lines in my area. So then we're talking propane, and my stove is on an interior wall. In that case, I'm now running a line in the house, etc. I think giving the electric coil stove a chance is a good idea in this case.

In the end, my personal experiene (which is sample size 1) suggests that these smooth top ranges are a triumph of aesthetics over simple utility. No one wants an ugly stove, but, really, its first job is to cook food. If it does that poorly, well, who cares about the aesthetic.
