Question about Kenmore Ovens
We bought this used from an individual. Got it home and plugged it in and get the f1 beeping error message. The guy said it probably drew moisture from being outside. We used a blow dryer and then the error message and beeping quit. The oven worked fine but when I hit the 'timer' button, the f1 beeping error message came back and won't quit unless you unplug it. The label that had the model number is gone from the back of the range. Is there anywhere to find a model number so I can call the repair shop? Is there anything I can do to stop the beeping?
The F1 usually means a problem with the touchpanel. It is also related to the F7 problem. I have developed a fix which may solve you problem. Please go to the following link for my fix.
I have shared my fix with over two thousand unhappy GE customers. Most report success. Please let me know if this works for you too. I am making a statistical study of this problem.

code F1 means that an error with the keypad has occurred. Usually it happens
due to loose ribbon cable on the keypad or the electronic control assembly
itself going bad. To resolve this issue first, disconnect the power to unit and
then gain access to the back of the clock assembly (Electronic Range
Control/ERC). Now unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC, it would
be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide and make sure that the cable
is not broken and nothing is shorted on the keypad. After this is done insert
the cable back and then plug the unit back to check. If the error is still
there then the electronic control board should be replaced. Hope
this helps...please post back for further assistance.
