Here is some wisdom for understanding F1 fault codes.

In some models, there are subcodes that make diagnosis even easier.

Here's a simple explanation of what's going on and how to troubleshoot:

The F1 code indicates that:


a. The electronic range control (ERC) is sensing heat in the oven when in a time-of-day (i.e., not cooking) mode.

b. The ERC is receiving information to run multiple heat functions simultaneously.


Although different components (depending upon the model) could generate the code, simple and straightforward testing using your ohm meter is all you gotta do to test for it.

1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor has to 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.

The F1 code is a problem with the very sensitive electronic panel inside and it probably got taken out when the socket shorted out. Here is the part to order. There is a video on that same parts page to show you how to swap the board out.

My Kenmore stove when I try to bake the oven shuts off and i get a code of E1-F1-


Hello there
Your kenmore product is a whirlpool product actually. The error E1-F1 indicates that the Electronic Range Control/Clock has been blown. Replacing this piece can easily cost you $150+. but is not too hard to replace ok?
Hope this helps

Kenmore 8114p643 showing f1.


F1 is either a bad electronic control board or a bad touch pad.

You find the solution on :kenmore oven with "F1" error

I quote:
"You have either a bad ERC (clock) or a bad touch pad.

    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 apx. 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 apx. 30 minutes you do NOT get the F1 and hear the beep, replace the touch pad.
      NOTE: Some models incorporate the touch pad and the clock as one part.
If you can't find a new ERC you can send yours to stove clock repair and get it repaired!"

Stove replacement?


All the fault codes I could find on Roper indicates that this is an Electronic Oven Control (EOC) failure. This is your clock assembly. Searspartsdirect.com carries the part for about $47. I think for that price, it may be worth the attempt to repair the range, vice replacing one at a cost of hundreds of dollars. Just type in your model number and you can locate the clock assembly under the "Backguard Section" heading as item number 17 (part number WB27M10). I hope this helps you.

Kenmore Stove Glass top


Hello,

I have a Kenmore glass stove, not sure what the model number is I don't have it with me right now. Yesterday, the timer started to beep and F1 started to flash in the display. The stove top is working, but the oven does not. The only way I can get the timer to stop beeping is to unplug the stove.

Any suggestions as to what is going on with this stove. It's only 4 years old.

Thanks
