F1 code on Amana range ACS7270AS

This has happened several times now - the display shows F1, nonstop beeping. The cooktop works but the oven doesn't. Five times now in five years. Can I learn to replace it myself? Money's an issue - should I just bite the bullet and replace it? Amana's offering me a 35% rebate on any Whirlpool model range, or on the replacement part.

    I have the same f-1 problem with my amana range, Model ACS7270AS, and I purchased my oven with my new house back in 2004. Every year since then I had this f-1 problem and had the panel replaced by maytag professional each year. I am tired of this especially when my over started up again the day before Christmas and I can't cook our dinner. This sounds like a recall issue especially if alot of people experience this same issue. I was denied a repacement oven by maytag-dependibily. I will not purchase another Amana product again.

    I have this same problem! Since so many of us do have this issue I think Amana should own it.

    I also have the same problem. Range was purchased in 2004, and every year almost to the day since, I have to replace the membrane. Always the same part. They told me that I should have bought the extended warantee. I told them that if they would have fixed the problem under the original warantee, I wouldn't still be having the same problem. Now I have an F9 error. I was told that the ovens today aren't made to cook with everyday. That's what I got for $1500.00 in 2004. That was pretty expensive at the time. No more Amana, Maytag, Jen Air, Whirlpool, or Kitchen Aid for me. All made by the same people.

    I have the same problem, non stop beeping and oven sometimes does not work. I have to turn on and off from breaker. And while i cook if im lucky the beep sounds goes away if not i have to hear it beep until im done cooking and turn off from breaker. I bought my Amana Stove ACS7270AS in about 2004. I should of gotten the ex. warrnty. This sounds like a recall issue.

Same problem: and this will be the 3rd time. This range is junk! (However, I do agree with some repairmen who've said it is the fancy electronic panels.) I have a whirlpool dishwasher that just stopped working due to it's electronic panel. I can hardly wait to see what happens with my new washer/dryer.

It's going to be another two weeks until the replacement parts arrive - does anyone know how to unplug the beeper "speaker" itself? I've figured out how to open the top of the range, but not figured out where the speaker is.

1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor gotsta be within spec or it will cause the F1 code. As an example of being out-of-spec, the ERC will generate an F1 fault code when the sensor shows 1650 ohms during a time-of-day mode. This is equivalent to 350°F in the oven. The resistance isn’t high enough to generate an F2 code (runaway temp) or an F3 or F4 code (shorted/open sensor circuit). The ERC monitors the sensor circuit after a heat cycle and expects the resistance to drop back to 1050-1100 ohms. The fault code is generated when this doesn’t happen. Checking the sensor circuit means also checking the harness, harness connections and the sensor itself.
2. If the oven sensor circuit checks okay, then turn your inquisitive eyeballs to the touchpad. If the range has a separate touchpad/keyboard, the keypad may have moisture that is shorting several circuits simultaneously. If the F1 code is given immediately (instead of during or after a heat cycle), remove the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the ERC after clearing the F1 code. If the F1 code does not return in five minutes, then cast a suspicious gaze upon the touchpad/keyboard. Shorts may be caused by using an ammonia-based glass cleaner. The touchpad surface will absorb ammonia-based cleaners that are sprayed directly on the glass surface. When heat is applied, the surface material can break down causing shorts. If you’re gonna use ammonia-based cleaners on your control panel, then you should spray it on the rag and then wipe the touchpanel –don’t spray directly onto the surface of the touchpad.
3. On Amana ranges with a rotary temperature dial, be sure that the knob is in the OFF position when performing tests.
4. If these tests all check good, then replace the ERC.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Error code F1 indicates electronic control failure and is displayed due to electronic oven control failure and the only way to solve this problem is by replacing the control board which is bad. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My amana gas stove keeps beeping and the code F1 is flashing?


Hi!
The F1 code means that the Key Pad is defective, the book says that if pressing CANCEL for 10 seconds don't stop the beeping and resets, the Pad should be replaced. I have learned that if you unplug the unit from the wall outlet for a couple of minutes, most of the time the pad will reset by itself.
Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

F1 error


Try turning off breaker for 5 minutes. It happens to me about once a year and this clears the error code.

Intermittent beeping


The f1 code means that the touch pad mambrane is bad on your oven. I found a web site where you can order this part. I don't represent this site in any way. Here is the link. Make sure it looks the same as the one you have. Hope this helped
