20 Most Recent Frigidaire FEF376 Electric Kitchen Range Questions & Answers

Here is some wisdom for understanding F1 fault codes.

In some models, there are subcodes that make diagnosis even easier.

Here's a simple explanation of what's going on and how to troubleshoot:

The F1 code indicates that:

a. The electronic range control (ERC) is sensing heat in the oven when in a time-of-day (i.e., not cooking) mode.

b. The ERC is receiving information to run multiple heat functions simultaneously.

Although different components (depending upon the model) could generate the code, simple and straightforward testing using your ohm meter is all you gotta do to test for it.

1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor has to be within spec or it will cause the F1 code.
As an example of being out-of-spec, the ERC will generate an F1 fault code when the sensor shows 1650 ohms during a time-of-day mode.
This is equivalent to 350°F in the oven.
The resistance isn't high enough to generate an F2 code (runaway temp) or an F3 or F4 code (shorted/open sensor circuit).
The ERC monitors the sensor circuit after a heat cycle and expects the resistance to drop back to 1050-1100 ohms.
The fault code is generated when this doesn't happen. Checking the sensor circuit means also checking the harness,
harness connections and the sensor itself.

2. If the oven sensor circuit checks okay, then turn your inquisitive eyeballs to the touchpad.
If the range has a separate touchpad/keyboard, the keypad may have moisture that is shorting several circuits simultaneously.
If the F1 code is given immediately (instead of during or after a heat cycle),
remove the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the ERC after clearing the F1 code. If the F1 code does not return in five minutes,
then cast a suspicious gaze upon the touchpad/keyboard. Shorts may be caused by using an ammonia-based glass cleaner.
The touchpad surface will absorb ammonia-based cleaners that are sprayed directly on the glass surface. When heat is applied,
the surface material can break down causing shorts.
If you're gonna use ammonia-based cleaners on your control panel, then you should spray it on the rag and then wipe the touchpanel
-don't spray directly onto the surface of the touchpad.

3. On Amana ranges with a rotary temperature dial, be sure that the knob is in the OFF position when performing tests.

4. If these tests all check good, then replace the ERC.

Check the thermal fuse in the back first.

although you cannot see damage / the when the buttons do not respond. its possible that membrain is damaged or the eoc ( clock ) is not able to receive signals from the touch pad .. the clock will have to be replaced . list price for clock is 171.00 and includes membrain ( touchpad) .. hope this will help mm

It has a bad element that needs to be replaced

Range does not heat (lights and timer do not operate).
This would indicate the range is not receiving the required 220 volts. Check house hold breakers or fuses, open wiring between the terminal block and the components, and the power cord.

Unplug the unit, then manually depress and hold the light switch on the frame of the unit while plugging it back in. The lock should go back into the proper position.

you can unplug the stove and plug it back in that will take the looking position. and in other models, set the oven to clean the oven for 5 minotes, and it will go of and will relace the oven door.

look closely at the control buttons one should also have that same icon on it somewhere, youll need to hold it in for 3-5 secs to unlock the controls. its a child safety feature so the kids wont accidentally turn it on

The power connections to your stove or the wiring at the plug are incorrect. The neutral connection is missing (White wire)
