Wires in the back of the oven got exposed, and I guess were touching
the metal. Some of the fiberglass got burned a little, these wires
connected to the ovens heating element. They are two different
sizes. I'm trying to figure out what these wires are called so
that I can order and replace them. The longest wire connects to a black
plastic connector with holes (other wires connect to this part also)

This happened on our Kitchenaid electric stove/oven as well! I unplugged the oven, opened up the outside panel of the oven (same side as the temp probe jack) and found a small metal tab adjacent to the jack. I opened that up to reveal the jack surrounded by moist fiberglass sheeting. A boiling pot of beans had over-flowed on that side of the range the day before. Moisture had gotten down in there and was crossing the connections. Once I dried off the exposed metallic parts and moved the moist fiberglass away from the connections, problem went away. Hopefully, a good self-cleaning cycle will dry up that moisture.
Thanks for using FixYa. There is
an over-temperature switch built into the electrical panel of the oven.
Resetting this switch might solve the issue.
To reset it: Turn off the power. Open the door (if door is locked, turn the
power back on and gently try pulling the door every few seconds as the locking
mechanism cycles until it is unlocked). Remove the 3 screws below the control
panel (screws point upwards, with the head just inside the oven). Pull off the
face of the control panel. Let it dangle by the wires so that you have access
to the space behind it.
Within the electrical enclosure exposed by removing the control panel, look for
a small silver and black device with 2 wires attached to the back. The device
is about .5" wide by 1" long and is attached with 2 screws to the
sheet metal on the bottom of the electrical enclosure.

Defective touch pad or clock (ERC)
Replace touch pad or clock (ERC). Touch pad is a more common problem.This simple test will help determine whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control or Clock) or the touch pad is defective when F1 error code is present.
Note: Some models incorporate the touch pad in to the ERC as a single assembly, in which case this test is not necessary. Simply replace the ERC (Clock).
Warning: If you feel in any way uncomfortable performing this test or making this repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.
1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing. 2. Gain access inside the control panel. 3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC. 4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was. 5. Turn the power back on. 6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping sound). 7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.
it may be a wire fried or came loose, and is touching metal. if an exposed wire is touching metal, you wont be able to reset the breaker. pull the range out, and remove the back, and if necessary, lift the top and check the wires to the burners also. it should be easy to spot the wire that's causing the problem from there. let me know if you have further questions, shane
you have a touch pad issue, whats the model and serial ill look up the part for you, sometimes you can just get the key pad, sometimes comes sa a whole console or as part of the electronic control itself.
Thats was happening to my sisters jenn aire just a couple monthg ago. I ordered a board for it but, the daybefore it came in I jauseled the front of the board attachment piece and made sure all connections we're tight... yada... in the maint field... you know hand search all connections with these printed led boards you can just have a loose connections and send bad signals and false board readings. And yes, even touch pads willact weird. So good luck, worked for me!
If this is a gas range your problem is most likely your oven ignitor. As they get older they get weak and takes longer to open gas valve. Eventually it won't come on at all. Replacing the oven ignitor will often take care of problem. BE SURE TO UNPLUG UNIT BEFORE REPAIR!! Remove oven floor. The ignitor is in a cage attached to back of oven burner. It mounts with 2 screws. You may have to cut wires and wirenut in replacement. Doesn't matter if the 2 wires are reversed.
