Kenmore Electric Range model #93591 or#93598 flashes F1 and beeps
After using the oven, and turning it off, the range control flashes F1 and beeps. It can't be reset until it cools down. Can it be fixed? I can't seem to find this model #. We have had this range for about 15 years. I'm hoping it will last forever.
This repair CAN be done by you, but I wouldn't recommend it because of the many things that could go wrong and the rather high cost of these ERC's. See, if you try the repair and oh... say... mis-wire the new board and short it out, you would not be able to return it to where you bought it. However, if you have a professional come out and install it for you (an ERC the he brings with him... if you choose this direction, don't buy the ERC yourself) and HE screws up, you're not liable for his mistake and would owe no money. He'd have to "eat" the ERC and get you a new one.

According to Kenmore's list of error codes, F1 means EOC
(Electronic Oven Control) failure, and the solution is to replace the EOC. You might look into that. The part itself costs around $80, as far as I can see.
Without being able to look up the error codes for your model (number please!), I would guess that the oven control triac has shorted out or the relay is stuck on (I assume the oven runs at maximum temperature). In any case, the oven microcontroller knows something is wrong, so it says F1 and beeps for help.
