Question about Jenn-Air JES9800AAS Electric Kitchen Range

F1 shows on display and beeps constantly.

The only way i have found to turn off the incessant beeping and the F1 on the display is to turn the oven on and leave it on! Help! What did my cleaning lady do to it to make this happen? I have tried pressing cancel, clean, pressed the timer button and held for 3 seconds.

    There is a flaw with the stove. I have had this model for 8 years and had to replace the computer panel and key pad 3 times. This stove has a design flaw. I have noticed when I use the oven steam gets behind the clock on the front panel. Each time I have had the panel replaced you could see an area on the computer pannel that started to rust.

The F1 error code relates to a defective touch pad or clock (ERC). It seems that the reason for it in your case is some liquid entered the unit during its cleaning. Unplug the power cable and wait for few hours, In case it will not help, apart the ERC unit and and dry the touch pad and the clock. Good luck!

How to stop WB27K5040 from beeping F1 error code

Unfortunately, the F1 error means that either the touch pad has a short or the "clock" (electronic control unit) has failed. Sometimes the wire between the touch pad and the clock fails. To test for the exact problem, you would need to unplug the range and access the clock from the back of the range. Unplug the touch pad from the clock. Then plug in the range again. If the error does not recur, the touch pad is bad. If the F1 error and beeping repeat, the clock is bad.

GE sold the clock and touch pad as a single unit for the WB27K5040. Since this is an older model range, the replacement is not in stock. There are some places that offer to repair the clock. You'll need to remove the part (or get a service person to do it) and send it in. Your range will be unavailable for some weeks while this is attempted. Otherwise, you should replace the range when the issue becomes too frustrating.

I hope this helps.

Please help. We are a cleaning crew that went to a client's home to do a reno...

If you are having oven problems with your GE XL44 oven then you need to do a bit of oven troubleshooting. The first part of that problem is to know what the oven fault codes are trying to tell you.

The codes F0, F1, and F7 could either be a problem with the control or the keypad.
-to see what the problem is cause by, push clear/off on the keypad. Then disconnect the ribbon connector from the control. Wait at least 35 seconds to see if the code comes back. If the code comes back then the control is the problem. If the code does not come back, then replace the key panel.

F2 – This means there has been a problem with the temperature of your oven. It could be a cooling fan or air flow problem. Also could be that the oven got too hot in either a baking mode or a cleaning mode.
-check to make sure the contactor contacts are not welded together. If this happens the oven will always be putting out heat, even if turn off. The thermal switch may also have burnt out. If this switch is open then the fan may be bad, causing the thermal switch to activate. The thermistor that senses oven temperature may also bed bad or have a poor connection somewhere.

F3 and F4 - These are oven temperature sensor codes.
- check the sensor by removing power to the range and then removing the sensor. Check that the sensor reads approximately 1100 Ohms at 72 degrees F. Then check the oven sensor lead to make sure that it is not shorted out. Then check the terminals to make sure that you are getting good contact. If everything checks out okay, then replace the control.

F5 – This is a relay safety circuit failure code
-check the lock circuit for problems. Then check the thermistor for high resistance. Press clear/off on the key pad and reprogram the control. If the code is still there then replace the control.
The F5 code can also result from a short loss of power. If you had a power flicker then reset the control.

FC – This shows a problem with the door lock circuit. Check all the wires and the switches. Check the operation of all the switches.

FD – This is a problem with the meat probe. Check the probe wiring and the receptacle where the probe plugs in at. Resistance on the probe should be 30 to 50K ohms at 72 degrees F.

FF – This is a problem with the door motor safety circuit. To fix this the control will need to be replaced.

I had the oven on 350 for 45 min. baking potatoes and then the oven beeped twice and F1 showed up on the screen where it had said 350 so I turned the oven off and the time then showed on the screen. ...

The manual says error code "F1" means a problem occurred in the circuitry and suggests pressing "CLEAR" to reset it. If the problem persists, contact a repair guy.
See page 19:
"This oven is equipped with a state of the art electronic oven control. Among its many features is a full time oven circuit diagnostics system. The control constantly monitors its internal circuitry as well as several crucial oven circuits to insure they are all operating correctly. If at any time one of these systems fails, the control will immediately stop operation, and beep continuously (flashing an error code of F1, F3 or F9 in the display window, if equipped). Electronic control has detected a fault condition. Press CLEAR to clear the display and stop the beeping. Reprogram oven. If fault recurs, record fault number, press CLEAR and contact an authorized servicer."

Kenmore oven control beeps and shows F1

According to Kenmore's list of error codes, F1 means EOC (Electronic Oven Control) failure, and the solution is to replace the EOC. You might look into that. The part itself costs around $80, as far as I can see.

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...

hi there,

the F1 code usually means that you have a key stuck on the keypad. unplugging it from power won't make a difference for this one. is it a wall oven or a stove? can you supply the make & model please?

F1 and constant beeping

Tul2pi, there are several things that could cause this. 1. shorted keypad. If you unplug the keypad ribbon from the board and the beeping stops it's more than likley your problem. 2. Temperature probe in the oven may have gone bad. You would have to ohm this out. At 75 degrees it should read approx. 1091 ohms. 3. Worst of all it would be a control problem itself where as you would have to replace the control board. Since you are so close to the warranty period, I would call Frigidaire at 1800-944-9044 and see if they would cover back.
