We present frequency analysis of the Kepler light curve of KIC 10486425, an eclipsing binary system with a pulsating component. The parameters of the binary were obtained by modelling the light curve with the Wilson-Devinney program. The residuals from this modelling were subject to Fourier analysis which allowed us to detect 120 periodic terms characteristic for gamma Dor-type pulsations. The dominant frequency of these changes amounts to 1.3189 d(-1).
