Stove beeping and error F11

My range started beeping and the error message F11 appeared. The beeping would not stop until I unplugged the stove and then plugged it back in. Also, all the burners are sparking when I turn one burner on. Is this usual, I did not ever notice it before?

    I have the same problem with my Kenmore elite slide in range. It gives the F11 error and the beeping won't stop.

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 electric stove I have is beeping f11 how do I stop it from beeping


I appreciate your inquiry, friend!

I see that you are having a difficult time with your Frigidaire range displaying an "F11" error code. That error code stands for a shorted keypad and I would recommend performing a reset on your range. You can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If you restore power and continue to receive an "F11" code you may need to replace the EOC (Electronic Control Panel) this is not a simple DIY job. I would recommend contacting a professional technician for proper disassembly and repairs to be completed. I hope this is helpful information. -Matt

Hello,
The F1 error code means a button on the touchpad is stuck,usually pushing clear/off will clear it. Since you have done that and it returns the touchpad needs to be replaced

Beeping won't stop and the F7 error code appears on the monitor


You may have got water into the control panel or cooktop causing an electrical short. Hopefully if you give a few days to dry out and plug it back in the code will be gone.

"F1" error code on Magic Chef gas range Model 3488XRA


I'm not sure how to fix this, but my mom's magic chef has been doing this for close to 10 years. She's managed it by plugging a power strip into the wall outlet and plugging the stove into the power strip. Then she can just turn on the strip when she needs to use the oven. It only requires moving the unit once, and is easy for the technological/ home repair novice.

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.
