Question about Kitchen Ranges
When you plug the stove in , the clock display starts beeping and displays error code "F1" and doesn't stop until you unplug the unit. If you plug in again you get the same error.
On a diagnostic web site I found the following information: "F1" error means either (1) Watchdog on board or (2) touch membrane defective.
- What do these mean?
- Is there any inexpensive solution to this problem? CAn anything be disconnected so that the stove works properly without getting the errer? The range is close to 10-15 yrs. old. The gas range has themicrohood connected. I'm not for sure how old this model is.
The F1 code beeps atno apparent usage. Usually, it occurs duringthe midst of the dayand night. Again, after resetting it occursagain.
I'm not sure how to fix this, but my mom's magic chef has been doing this for close to 10 years. She's managed it by plugging a power strip into the wall outlet and plugging the stove into the power strip. Then she can just turn on the strip when she needs to use the oven. It only requires moving the unit once, and is easy for the technological/ home repair novice.
