Question about Maytag MER5530 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Maytag Electric Range model MER5530

I had set the oven to self clean for 3 hours and after 2 hours it started beeping and on the screen it had F1. Since then the oven has not worked properly. The broiler works and I was able to set the oven at 500 and that got the temp to 300. Now I can't do that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks so much for the quick response. It looks as if you are correct. My husband ordered a temp. sensor yesterday and it should be in tomorrow. He did check it with a volt meter and the reading was much higher than it should be.

    Have a lovely day!

Momhenry, usually the F1 codes means a bad touch pad membrane but the fact that you had it in self clean could indicate another problem. There are a couple of ways to indentify the real problem. First have someone ohm out the temperature sensor. It should read between 1100 and 1200 ohms at room temp. This is the probe that is in your oven. It will unscrew from the inside and have a harness. Unplug the harness and test it from there. If the sensor checks out, kill the power to the oven and remove the keypad ribbon from the main board. Plug the oven back in with the keypad ribbon off and see if the error code returns. If it returns and your sensor checks out, it's the main board. If it doesn't return it's your touchpad. With-out being there, my past experience with this model would lean toward the temp. sensor. Check this out first, back.

I have a mer5730aaw my bottom element dosen't work.Then the display showed F1 and started to beep.So I unplugged the oven and disconnected the multi wire to the control panel.Then it displayed F3

F1 touch pad / ERC test This simple test will help determine
whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control or Clock) or the touch pad is
defective when F1 error code is present.

Note: Some models incorporate the touch pad in to the ERC as a single
assembly, in which case this test is not necessary. Simply replace the ERC

Warning: If you feel in any way uncomfortable performing this test or
making this repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing

2. Gain access inside the control panel.

3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC

4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was

5. Turn the power back on.

6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping sound)

7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

F1 is displayed on Maytag Electric Oven I ran the self-clean cycle on my Maytag Model MER5530 oven yesterday; before it completed F3 was displayed and beeps sounded. I pressed CANCEL, the F3...


F1 error means that you have either a bad ERC (clock) or a bad touch pad. To check these please follow these simple instructions:
  1. Disconnect power to stove
  2. Gain access to the back of the clock (electronic range control or ERC).
  3. Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide.
  4. Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on.
  5. Turn power back on to stove.
  6. Watch for the F1 and listen for the beep.
  7. If you get the F1 and beep, replace the ERC.
  8. If after approx. 30 minutes you do NOT get the F1 and hear the beep, replace the touch pad...

Error code F1

Error code F1 is for a defective touch pad or membrane (usually the touch pad). In this case you will need replace touch pad or membrane. It seems that water entered the touch pad during the self cleaning process, remove the touch pad and try to dry it. Good luck !!
