    My display flashes E1 and F1. When I try to clear the code it beeps for about 2 minutes. The cooktop works but the oven does not. When I turn on the oven it flashes and the light blinks telling me to turn off the oven. We had a power surge right before this began happening.

Farkle, outside of Gendos's excellent advice, the issue could be with the keypad. If your model has a keypad ribbon that attaches to the main board, remove it and take a eraser and clean the ends. Then reinsert it. On the board there should be two clips on the end where the ribbon attaches. Lift these up and the ribbon will pull out. See if this solves the problem...Catriver.

    E1 -F2- = the keytail (connector ribbon) that plugs into the control board is not making good contact. first unplug your range and then remove the two screws on the underside of the back-splash controls panel to access the back of the control board. now simply cut a slip of heavy paper such as a business card to the width of the ribbon and slide it into the slot along with the ribbon connector. that will help press the contacts on the other side together snuggly. screw the back-splash back in place, plug in your range, and the problem will vanish. if the error ever returns, try pulling out the connector, cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser (see -http://www.fixyourboard.com/techzone/ove... - for illustration), reinserting it into the slot and repeat above with the paper. good luck.

Won't auto clean, after one minute it beeps a few times and puts a E1 F5 on the screen


The E1- F5 error is a door lock error.

The control (TIMER) has likely failed in this instance - BUT...

Sometimes when you disconnect power to a range and reconnect it the electronic range control gets confused.
You should disconnect power again for 15 seconds and reconnect and see if that helps.

If it doesn't cure the E1- F5 error hold the bake button in until E0- F2 appears in the display.
This is the error for a stuck button on the keypad and is the way to clear the memory of the electronic range control.

Sometimes these work, but if the control has failed it won't make any difference.
