While cooking a chicken, my stove went schitzo, and started beeping and flashing the "probe" message next to the temp display. We have tried clearing the controls by holding down both buttons on the display, and also unplugging the unit completely for several seconds. No luck, it just keeps beeping! Any ideas for us before we call a repair man?

Re: stove controls beeping and flashing "Probe"
Most likely oven sensor / probe is the problem. It can be tested with an ohm meter. Not sure about your model, but most should read around 1100 ohms at room temperature. If there's a tech sheet somewhere on your unit, it should tell you.

It looks like the probe is the same as the temperature sensor.
On some models, you can recalibrate the oven control up to 35 degrees Fahrenheit higher or lower. Refer to your owner's manual for instructions on how to recalibrate the oven control.
Since you're getting an error message the following may apply:
OPEN PROBE CONNECTION
1. (F30 or F31) Check resistance at room temperature & compare to RTD Sensor resistance chart. If resistance does not match the RTD chart replace RTD Sensor Probe. Check Sensor wiring harness between EOC & Sensor Probe connector.
SHORTED PROBE CONNECTION
2. (F30 or F31) Check resistance at room temperature, if less than 500 ohms, replace RTD Sensor Probe. Check for shorted Sensor Probe harness between EOC & Probe connector. .
You can cook chicken in anything, but it must be fully defrosted. It is dangerous to cook chicken from frozen as cooking takes so long.
Fully immerse the chicken in cold water, changing the water every 10 minutes. After 30 minutes, use one change of hot water, sit for 10 minutes, remove, dry, season and start the cooking. Cook for 90 minutes to 2 hours, or until a probe thermometer shows 165'F at the thigh. Rest for 10 minutes and enjoy.
The stove is in probe mode for cooking. This unit does not have a probe. I suggest unplugging the stove for a few minutes (or turn off the breakers) to reset the controller. If this does not cure it, you will need a service man. Here is your owner's manual
you have a bad computer board or clock assy. same thing the most common thing that cooks the board is heat and usually from self cleaning the oven,next time send the model number,if this is a slide in stove under the oven door is a drawer,open it and look at the frame,you'll see a tag with model and serial numbers,if that functions by itself you have a bad board.
f-1 codes are usually a temperature issue. you should try ohm'ing out the temperature probe you should have about 1260 ohms. if you are off by 40 ohms then replace the temperature probe. if it is close then you may have a bad control.
I had the same problem today (my wife overflowed a pot of chicken stock last night, so there was liquid all over the cook-top, and some probably got down behind the control pannel). Based on the solution to a problem that seemed similar, though definitely not as exact as your description, I checked the probe connection (unscrewed the retaining nut, then unscrewed the two sheet metal screws holding the housing in place, then gave the probe connection a gentle tug to ensure that it was still properly connected). Finding nothing wrong, I replaced the housing and retaining nut, and the lights were no longer flashing.
