Please use the chart to determine which stove you have. You will have to look at the model number. The first 3 numbers will be the series on the chart. In most cases an F1 error would require replacment of the electronic control. This part is commonly refered to as an EOC or ERC. However this type of repair is usually reserved for repair specialists.

KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes – 362 Series (General Electric)
F1 = Stuck Touch Pad Key - Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE - 911 Series (General Electric/Roper)
F0-F1-FF = Failed transistor in Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes- 665 Series (Whirlpool)
F1-E0 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E1 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E2 U/L ERC Errors - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E3 Fuel Type Fail

Kill power 30 seconds-Cancel-Start/Enter-5 seconds-Should see “E” for electric-
“9” for gas-If code changes again-replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE - 790 Series Electronic Oven Control (Frigidaire)
F1 = Shorted Touch Pad = Electronic Range Control (EOC) Internal checksum error.
Runaway Temp = Replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

Kill power 30 seconds - if error returns - replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

My Roper was doing this for no apparent reason. Buzzer would wake me up at 3am. Buzzer never went off when using the range.
I've gotten used to turning off the range circuit breaker after using the range. My solution. --Remove ERC board and unsolder the buzzer.

GE Oven JKP56...after Self Clean bottom element in upper oven stays hot. Breaker off, let cool, breaker on...bottom element gets warm (all controls off). the breaker is off for now. Please help.

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Leave the power off remove the screws from under the panel and lift up to open the control panel. There are reset-able fuses in there check them by pressing the center red button if they are ok check the screen in front of the fan make sure its not blocked up it will cause this problem too.If all that is ok then the relay on the control fused closed and you would have to replace the control board with the relays on it.

Hello, I have a Turbochef tornado oven, while operation i am getting a Fault code Close door error and it keeps on coming while closing the door with a beep . Can anyone please try to resolve the error...

seems like your primary switch isn't closed correctly or it might bad.
step to trouble shoot
OVEN HAS 5000 VOLTS MOVING INTO IT PLEASE BE CAREFULL back key to turn off the oven.
2.Open left side pannel. 'back' and 'enter' key together.Then, enter 9428 and then press enter.
4.You will be directing to an testing screen.At the bottom of thetesting screen there are many alphabets.In which you can see 'P' ,'S' and 'M' .
5.Open the door and watch what happened to alphabet 'P'.I meant to say that when door open alphabet will highlited ,and when closed its seems an regular 'P' door and close the door .And also keep an eye on the primary switch at the top left corner of the oven where the door latches engaged.If it engaged very nicely and you still see an highlited 'P' in the testing screen then REPLACE THE PRIMARY SWITCH OR IF SWITCH IS OKAY THEN CHEK THE WIRING UPTO MAIN BOARD.
7.If switch doesn't latches properly then adjust switch ,by lossning the screw and aligned it properly.

What does F7 code mean?


The F7 is an error code that means indication of a water temperature sensor error over flow from it oven which level is below 6degree

what you have to do to fix up this problem is to unscrew (open)the oven then clean up all form of water from the wire and also on the screen /panel then couple it back with care and allow it to relax it self for some time.

please DO NOT APPLY WATER when doing this and also make sure that all form of power supply is put OFF from the switch
hope this help.?
thank you and thanks for using fixya.

Power Failure Came Up on Screen and Oven is locked and will not o

Hello,verify that the oven is connected to its power source.The oven may sometimes lock down if experiencing a power surge or similar electrical problems.Additionally, check that a fuse hasn't been blown in your home's fuse box.Some older homes may not have the proper wiring to support a high power appliance such as a whirlpool oven.If not you are not sure your wiring is sufficient,consult a local electrician.

Oven stops working and display screen goes blank

Hello The control has developed faults in one or more of it's circuits. This clock/timer must be replaced to solve the problem. The Good news is that this is not one of the really expensive controls. Found this one for about 70$ at a website. Worth fixing- but beware the 'self-clean' function after repair, and this control should last a lot longer.  Please acknowledge this post if info helps- have more if needed- Thanks- Ed
