Question about Ovens
The F1 error is similar to the F7 error and the fix may be similar. It indicates that the touchpanel needs to be replaced. The problem is really one where the insulation is breaking down between two sections of the ribbon cable which connects the touchpanel to the electronic control. I have solved the problem by placing slip of paper between the two secions of the ribbon cable. The slip of paper should be worked down into the slot. It will only go about 1/8". A piece of file card material works well. See attachec photo. If you have a metal touchpanel, you will also have to add slips of paper at the edges of the metal slot. __Be sure and turn off the power to the oven at your circuit breaker!____There are usually three small screws at the bottom of the touchpanel. The panel may need to be pushed upward to release it. Have a friend available to hold the panel while you work on it. Do not allow the panel to dangle by the wires.____Please let me know if this works for you or if you have any questions. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have shared this solution with over 830 folks. Most report success.

SOURCE: Error Code F8
For me...I disconnected the fuse. The F8 code would come on and off again with no consistency...after about 6 months I forgot about turning off the fuse....guess what it corrected it self and has been fine for 2 years now. I had got a quote on replacement of this panel...6000 to 700 $$$$$ I don't think so!

wow, that is so weird...i was just getting ready to write the exact same thing. this last time mine beeped, i just kept letting it beep for several minutes. if kept on. i then went in and pressed all the buttons except for cancel and nothing happened. then i pressed the oven light button. the beeping stopped. not sure if it's coincidence or if that was what i was supposed to press. i will keep messing with the buttons and let you know if i figure it out. i will dread if it beeps all night long.

Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC)
It looks like you have a function button pad stuck or a bad clock.
Unstick button or replace electronic range control.
