F1 Error Code

After cleaning, the next day I received the F1 all of a sudden. I disconnected the power, pressed the cancel on the touchpad,and reset the clock. All the functions like the timer work. When I try to broil, bake or clean, It seems to try to start up, I hear a click and then I get the F1. I've replaced the oven temp sensor. Can it be something other than the ECU?

F1 generally means the touchpad or ERC (Electronic Rage Control) is bad. This is what Maytag recommends as a simple test that you can do to determine whether the clock or the touchpad are defective when the display reads F1: - Disconnect power to the range. - Gain access to the back of the ERC (electronic range control, or "clock"). - Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire about 1 ½" to 2" wide. - Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on. Replace any covers removed to gain access to the ERC. - Turn the power back on to the range. - Watch for the F-1 and listen for the beep. - If you get the F-1 and beep, replace the ERC. - If after approximately 60 Minutes you do not get the F-1 fault, replace the touch pad. NOTE: Some models incorporate the touch pad and the clock control as one part so F1 = bad clock control. I hope this may help you, but it looks like you may have an expensive repair. Double check your wiring just to be sure.

F1 error code on Dacor RSD30S. Code comes on for no apparent reason, range not in use. Hitting cancel no longer resets range, I have to pull fuses to stop beeping.


Hello,

The F1 error code means that a button on the touchpad is stuck and sometimes it could be resolved by clearing the code by pushing the cancel button, having done that and it no longer clears that F1 code the touchpad would need to be replaced to keeping it from beeping nonstop.

The part number for that touchpad is 82063B it could be picked up at your local appliance parts store or online at;

Kenmore Gas Range model # 362.75491990 F3 error Oven will not hold temp - error message displays and beeps I Replaced the oven temp sensor same issue Is the control panel bad?


Hi,

Many models of the GE microwave have sensors that can detect humidity from the foods you are cooking. This allows the microwave to make adjustments to the power levels used to cook your food. If "Sensor Error" appears, you should either press "Clear" to cancel the mode or leave the food in the appliance longer to give the microwave more time to detect the food.

Press "Time Cook" to manually enter the time if you receive an error message when trying to use the "Sensor Reheat" mode of your GE microwave. The error message may be caused by the food item being too large or too small to detect.

these are some other code error that will help you in case of next time.

  1. Step 1 Press "Off/Cancel" (or "Cancel/Off" depending on your model) to clear the error code. Note the code if it reappears.
  2. Step 2 Replace the touchpad if the code displayed is "F0," "F7" or "F10." A function key is stuck or shorted.
  3. Step 3 Replace the touchpad or the clock (ERC) if the code "F1" is displayed. Disconnect the ribbon connector to the touchpad. If no code is displayed after an hour, replace the touchpad. If the code displays again, replace the clock.
  4. Step 4 Replace the oven temperature sensor if "F2," "F3" or "F4" is displayed. "F2" indicates the oven temperature is too hot and the oven temperature sensor is suspect. "F3" or "F4" indicates the oven temperature sensor or shorted or open.
  5. Step 5 Replace the ERC if "F5," F6" or "F8" is displayed. The ERC is the main control unit. "F5," F6" and "F8 are codes that indicate problems in the ERC functions.
  6. Step 6 Inspect the door-lock assembly and circuit if "F9" is displayed. The door must lock when the oven is in use. If the lock mechanism is not functioning or if the detection circuit is malfunctioning, the stove will display "F9."


jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); NOTE:


"F3" codes mean your oven temperature sensor has failed or shorted out. The only thing you can do is to replace the sensor.

Take care.

My jenn-air electric range is about 18 years old. sometimes for no reason f1 and beeping occured but pushing cancel stopped it until next time.about 9 months ago when beeping wouldn't stop and touchpad...


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.
