    hi catriver,

    i tried as you mentioned, but the E1-F1 still shows. Any idea? is it really a bad board/ERC? we have been using for about 6 years. It is whirlpool model rbs305pdq12 oven.

Tholt, for the model posted F1 E1 is a eeprom error in the board. Try pressing and holding cancel/off key for 5 seconds. If that doesn't work unplug or disconnect the power for 1 minute. Plug it back in, if the error comes back it probably is a bad control board. Most common cause of control failures is caused by corrosion on the connectors. I would seat and reseat all the connectors to the board, including the keypad ribbon. Give this a shot and post back, Catriver.

I have a Maytage electric slide in range with a ceran top. Model number MES5770ACW. I was cooking dinner last night on my stove and the elements on top stopped working. They will not turn on at all even...

Either control board bad, or there is more then one circuit breaker controlling the power, check the breakers on both the inside and outside breaker box...Stranger things have happened..

I have a Whirlpool Model # GY396LXGB5. The clock is displaying the following E1 - F1 code. We can't turn the oven on. All eyes on the stove top are working.


Thanks for using FixYa. F1-E1 error indicates that the control board has gone bad and should be replaced to resolve the issue. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

The stove just says F1 and beeps won't let me do

Hello with the limited information and no make or model I can only give a generic response to this one. Most manufacturers F1 code indicates a bad control board (EOC) and or a bad touch-pad. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Mike

Error on display F1 & E1 Stove will not start

HI. This is a safety flip flop error code, caused by damaged circuitry within the electronic control board. This will require you to have the control replaced asap. This will correct the issue.

Part number (for white control) #3196971
Part Number (for black control) #3196970

Oven doesn't work, stove does

If it's a Whirlpool or Kenmore oven (or one of several other brands that are made by Whirlpool) then this error code means:

F1 - E1 Safety flip flop Replace Electronic Range Control/Clock (ERC)

The system believes that the control board has failed and needs to be replaced.

This page has a list of diagnostic codes by brand and model number. You should check there to look up your particular brand to confirm what I just said.

After a power outage oven will no longer work

F1-E1 - EEPROM Checksum Error - Disconnect power for at least 30 seconds and then reconnect.
Allow at least a minute after power has been restored and if error code reappears, replace control board (clock).

Beeping, flashing, oven door locked, display shows F-1

F1 Defective touch pad or membrane Replace touch pad or membrane (this problem is usually the touch pad) F1 Watchdog on board Replace touch pad or clock assembly (also called the ERC) BUT you also need to check the Oven Temperature Sensors The Oven Temperature Sensors should read room temperature, 70°F, the resistance is 1000-1200 ohms. make sure you pull off the wires to measure the sensor's resistance and it reads open it is bad. and you will have to replace it too. hope this helps.
