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.

Oven flashing F and E1 codes when i turn oven on it ays to turn oven off and flashes F1 nd E1 codes


If this is a Kitchenaid, Roper or Whirlpool range, this error indicates an EEPROM error in the control board. Ifthe F1 E1 trouble code continues after you've disconnected the power for over 30 seconds, you need to replace the electronic control board (clock). You can often find parts online with the model number of the unit. (Try partselect.com or searspartsdirect.com (if Sears sold the model).)

I hope this helps.

Hi greg_shanoia,

The F1:-4 error code means "Runaway Clean Lower oven". You need to check the oven temperature sensor, replace if necessary.

Hope it helps.

My oven wont go off&it keeps flashing f1


f1 sounds like a lock issue is it a self cleaner? try unpluging the oven and pluging it back in, or uou can turn off the breaker to it and turn it back on. if the code still shows call the repair man for a repair.

Maytag Gemini double oven flashes F1 and stops heating.


I am attaching a Gemini manual. The checking procedures are the same for your oven.
Two component suspects for your problem would be the door latch mechanisms and the oven temperature sensors.

Oven turns on by itself and F1 flashes on the digital clock


Without being able to look up the error codes for your model (number please!), I would guess that the oven control triac has shorted out or the relay is stuck on (I assume the oven runs at maximum temperature). In any case, the oven microcontroller knows something is wrong, so it says F1 and beeps for help.
