I can't turn on the oven or the oven light. However I can turn the glass top burners on. any ideas on how to clear the code. just as a side note I did unplug the range for about an hour. Help please.....

    I have a Kenmore single (separate oven. All of a sudden it blinks the F-1 code and beeps incessantly. I hit the cancel button and it stops temporarily, but begins to beep again. What do I do to stop this.

    My Kenmore electric stove flashes F! and beeps. Any suggestions on how to fix the problem?

    F1 error and beeps until cleared. Sounds exactly the same as my issue. Where can I get a control board and the instructions for replacig it?

  • ekosborne Aug 03, 2008

    The F1 code has popped up on my Kenmore model 790.46804992 which is a glass top slide in. We've had it eight years and this has happened several times with this last time not solved yet (the F1 comes on and closck goes off after a few minutes). The instructions are to "push clear on the display and reprogram. If this does not work call for service". I found that throwing the breaker switch (which is easier than trying to unplug it) and leaving it off over night solved the problem for several years until now. You may even want to try turning the power off and on several times quickly to the stove, which could help reset it, before you call a repairman. In my situation has there been a part that is typically been replaced to solve this? Sounds like a resistor (or something like it) getting weak.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

I just had this same issues happen after running the self clean cycle. f1 error, fan would come on, fan would turn off. its not the control board, its the temperature probe. I picked up the part for 40 bucks and put it in myself. plugged the stove back in and it was good to go. the old temperature probe's wires melted during self clean. note to self: clean you over the old fashion way with some elbow grease.

My gas range started beeping last night, displaying F1 in the clock area. I uplugged it and plugged it back in but it still beeped with the F1 display.

Hi westae6733,

The F1 error code description is a bad touch pad or clock (ERC). You need to replace the control board (also called ERC or clock) to fix the problem.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

What do codes e2 and f1 mean?

Here is what the manufacture says about it, my comments are below.

F1 E2 - UL A/D error(s)

1. Verify failure if not displayed, using CANCEL/OFF key. Press key for 5 seconds until last
error code is displayed.
2. Disconnect power longer than 30 seconds.
3. Re-apply power and observe for longer than 1 minute.
4. If failure remains, disconnect power, replace control.

Phil's comments----->

F1 Codes are related to the control itself, if there was a storm, power outage, surge etc it could have damaged the control. Try resetting the board by unplugging the range or turning off the breaker for a couple minutes. Restart and see if that helps. If not you will need to replace the control.

The part number for this unit is 4453614 and runs just over $300.00

"F1" error code on Magic Chef gas range Model 3488XRA

I'm not sure how to fix this, but my mom's magic chef has been doing this for close to 10 years. She's managed it by plugging a power strip into the wall outlet and plugging the stove into the power strip. Then she can just turn on the strip when she needs to use the oven. It only requires moving the unit once, and is easy for the technological/ home repair novice.

F1 Error Code on MayTag range

migs, on a Maytag the F1 indicates there is a problem with the touch-pad or control itself. Usually, it's the touch pad. Try killing the power to the range and remove the touch pad ribbon from the control board. Clean it with an eraser. Power back up and see if the error comes back. If it does, remove the ribbon cable again and power up with-out it attached. If the same error still returns, then I would suspect the control board itself. back.
