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.

Thanks for using FixYa. Error code F1 means failed thermistor/transistor in control. To resolve this issue you’ll have to replace the Electronic range control (ERC). Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Older ge spacemaker range, temps wont boil water on stovetop, oven takes hours to hit 300 degrees could it be wiring or thermostat? says pn PLT135-3 owners manual [dont have] PLT059-2 model number...

Check your breakers to the oven. It sounds like one of the two of them have tripped and you are only getting 120 VAC.
Do you have a volt-ohm meter, and know how to use it?

My jmp28 range has lights and burners working, we put the range into self cleaning and left it, now the oven display is not lit, it is finished and the door is locked. Tried reseting power, did not help.

The thermal fuse for the controller board has failed. Needs to be replaced.

You can use a screwdriver to unlatch the door by reaching inside the top. You will need a flashlight to see what to push on to disengage.

NO power to large coil

Your stuff works on 220 volts, all this is, is two 110 volt circuits going to the same location. The large plug that is plugged up from the stove more than not there is one of the prongs that is burnt out
