Display shows error code "F1"

GE Range-JGBP79WEW1WW
The range started beeping and displaying "F1" error code at 5 am in the morning. press any panel button and it stops beeping and clears for 15 seconds and then starts it all over again. Unpluging the range and then pluging it back in does not help, same error.

    I removed the glass touch panel from the Timer box connector and cleaned the flat ribbon cable contacts. The cable seemed to be loose in the socket when I removed it also. I reinstalled the flat cable and made sure the plastic wedge that clamps the ribbon cable was securely in place. I put it all back together and it is working fine now. No more problems. The socket wedge for the ribbon cable is not a tight fit. I suspect virbration of daily use of the range caused the ribbon cable to dislodge over time.

BEEPING SHOWING F1


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire Range is displaying F1 as well as beeping. The F1 code means that there has been a key detected as pressed for a long period of time. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. While the power is off, wipe down the control panel. Sometimes even the slightest build-up on the control panel can cause this to happen. Restore power and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-
WP

F1 touch pad / ERC test This simple test will help determine
whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control or Clock) or the touch pad is
defective when F1 error code is present.



Note: Some models incorporate the touch pad in to the ERC as a single
assembly, in which case this test is not necessary. Simply replace the ERC
(Clock).



Warning: If you feel in any way uncomfortable performing this test or
making this repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.


1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing


2. Gain access inside the control panel.

3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC


4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was


5. Turn the power back on.

6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping sound)


7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

Timer tone goes off with F1 display


Hi arl3933,

The "F1" error code description is a System Watchdog Circuit. Please press "CANCEL", if beeping continues after 30 seconds, please check the main control board(ERC). Here are basic test that will help you to determine if the ERC or touchpad is defective.

1. Unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker.

2. Gain access inside the control panel.

3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC.

4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was.

5. Turn the power back on.

6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the code comes back.

7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

The code is because of bad keypad/the control panel.Have it changed.It probably non-functional and constant beeping sound is followed as you mentioned.Theres a link to explain more about this for reference.The only solution is to replace the control panel.

Have a magic chef oven, f1 display after self cleaning, stove top works fine, any thoughts


F-1 is a fault code.


Disconnect the power plug or turn range power off at circuit breaker. Wait a couple of minutes, then plug the range in or flip the range circuit breaker to ON.


Oven control beeps & displays any F  code error (for example 
F11) - Electronic control has detected a fault condition. Press 
CLEAR/OFF to clear the display & stop beeping. Reprogram 
oven. If fault recurs, record fault number. Press CLEAR/OFF
contact an authorized service agent.

What does "F1" mean? The oven is out!


I think f1 is a problem with the oven control board. Look on the back of the oven for a tech sheet and it will tell you what the codes mean and what to check.
