Question about Thermador Kitchen Ranges
SOURCE: GE Wall Oven - error code F1
According to GE, the F1 fault code indicates a problem with the Electronic Range Control (ERC) Board. If the fault cannot be cleared, they recommend replacing the ERC and the touchpad. Has your repair guy tried any of these ideas? Post back with your comments, please.

SOURCE: error code "43"?????
I got the error code 43 on my Thermador oven and after much expense I learned it was something I could have fixed myself. First, the concept: there are two cooling fans at the back of the oven that draw air in from around the oven and blow it over the circuit boards that are underneath the burners. You can hear the fans and feel the air coming out the front of the oven above the door when the oven is turned on (not the range top). This protects the circuits from overheating. In front of each blower is a "sail switch", a little switch with a lightweight metal rectangle attached. When the fans are blowing (any time the oven is on), it pushes the sail against the switch, closing it, and notifying the oven that the cooling is taking place. If the switch doesn't close, the oven thinks the fans aren't working. Also, if the switch remains closed after the oven is turned off, then the next time you turn the oven on, it will also give the 43 error code. This is to avoid giving a "false positive" reading in case the sail switch gets stuck in the closed position. So: first visually check the fans and sail switches. Do they close and open when the fans go on and off? They may need to be cleaned a bit to remove grease and gunk. Also, some of the switches are installed at an angle that prevents the switch from opening up again when the fans go off, causing the "fail safe" error. Finally, if a switch is broken, you must replace it. But its an easy job, once you pull the oven out.
