Question about Kenmore 40494 / 40495 / 40499 Electric Single Oven
The F1 error message usually means a short somewhere in the touch panel keyboard. There has been a rash of problems with keyboards. Most of the time there is a simple fix that can be used. Please see my post of April 14, 2007 in response to the problem posted by OVENMAN on April 12, 2007. There you will find a suggested solution which has helped hundreds of folks who have had error messages with GE and Kenmore ovens. If this fix doesn't work, you will need a replacement touch panel. There is no practical way to repair the keyboard in ovens.
