    I had already pressed clear/off and unplugged the oven, waited for 5 min and turned it back on. The oven continued alarming. I however, turned on the bottom oven which worked, so I baked some chicken while I listened to the alarm. after about 45 min of going nuts I pressed clear/off and the alarm quit. Wonder what happened?

F 1 is a control panel circuit fault, try unplugging the oven for 5 minutes, if that doesn't do it replace the control panel circuit board assembly.

I had the oven on 350 for 45 min. baking potatoes and then the oven beeped twice and F1 showed up on the screen where it had said 350 so I turned the oven off and the time then showed on the screen. ...

The manual says error code "F1" means a problem occurred in the circuitry and suggests pressing "CLEAR" to reset it. If the problem persists, contact a repair guy.
See page 19:
"This oven is equipped with a state of the art electronic oven control. Among its many features is a full time oven circuit diagnostics system. The control constantly monitors its internal circuitry as well as several crucial oven circuits to insure they are all operating correctly. If at any time one of these systems fails, the control will immediately stop operation, and beep continuously (flashing an error code of F1, F3 or F9 in the display window, if equipped). Electronic control has detected a fault condition. Press CLEAR to clear the display and stop the beeping. Reprogram oven. If fault recurs, record fault number, press CLEAR and contact an authorized servicer."

I have a magic chef electric smooth top range. everything works fine, but f-1 keeps appearing with the noisy beep beep beep. Press clear and it gets quiet for about a minute, then starts again! Only way to...

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
The f-1 error code is a fairly common problem with these ovens
This is either a controle panel issue or even the touch pad being faulty ok
Here is the test for it to determine which one it is
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.

F1 alarm started last night. Turned off circuit breaker overnight, tried today and still continues to alarm. Repairman wants $76 dollars to walk in the door. Please help


The error meaning depends on the oven brand.

On Amana and other brands F1 is a faulty control pad or faulty electronic control.
That may be your case , since the electronic control looks being jammed.

Try tripping the circuit breaker for two minutes (or disconnect power cord). If that does not help, then call the manufacturer at the number listed on the owners manual.

Note: on other brands F1 indicates incorrect temperature , and is associated with a faulty temperature sensor. This normally does not cause the electronic control beeping and not responding.

Error code F1 flashes and beeps on control panel


Error code F1 means a faulty keypad or connection problem with the keypad. You will need to check the connections of the keypad with the main board. Pressing Start/Cancel key may temporariliy resolve the issue, however, to resolve the issue you might need to change the keypad if the wiring to the keypad seems ok.

1. Disconnect power to oven.
2. Gain access to the back of the clock (electronic range control or ERC).
3. Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide.
4. Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on.
5. Turn power back on to stove.
6. Watch for the F1 and listen for the beep.

If it still shows as F1 then you'll need to replace the keypad.

Hope it helps...

We had a power outage and when the electricity was restored the oven is displaying an F1 and F7 code and is beeping the alarm, how do i stop this?

Hello, the F1 error code means internal logic failure (monitoring function) it sounds alarm and inhibit cook mode You can fix it by replacing the electronic range control (ERC)

F7 error code means the function key shorted for over 16 seconds, check for something pressing a key or preventing normal release of the key. You can fix it by replacing the electronic range control (ERC) if other component check normal.

Cannot turn off the alarm - show F1. I turned the power off for 2 days - no help. When you hit clear off - it stops for 10 or 20 seconds then back on.

F1 code
This code usually means that there is a problem with the keypanel. Many times, it means the keypanel needs to be replaced

Good luck and please rate 4 thumbs for the free answer

F1 signal started today can't turn the alarm off.model kenmore 9114832593

How to test many brands of Ranges that are flashing a F1 fault code: You have either a bad ERC (clock) or a bad touch pad.
  • Disconnect power to stove
  • Gain access to the back of the clock (electronic range control or ERC).
  • Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide.
  • Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on.
  • Turn power back on to stove.
  • Watch for the F1 and listen for the beep.
  • If you get the F1 and beep, replace the ERC.
  • If after approx. 30 minutes you do NOT get the F1 and hear the beep, replace the touch pad.
    NOTE: Some models incorporate the touch pad and the clock as one part.

  • Let me know if this doesn't point you to a solution. There are a couple of more things to try.

    F1 error code

    disconnect the power undo the three screws that hold the panel in place and behind the panel if you look you will see a 1 1/2'' wide electrical ribbon that sends info to and from touch pad .... ok heres the fix what causes the F1 is a short were the ribbon goes through the little metal slot (rubbing ) put some caulk on a business card and carefully put between metal and ribbon (you will only get to push the card in about 1/8'') but this and the caulk will be suff to keep the ribbon shorting, replace panel and screws power back on , it should now be ok

    Error code F1

    1. Shorted keypad.
    2. Control's internal checksum may have become corrupted.
    3. Control has sensed a potential runaway oven condition. Control
    may have shorted relay, RTD sensor probe may have gone bad.
    1. Disconnect power, wait 30 seconds and reapply power. If fault returns
    upon power-up, replace EOC.
    2. Check RTD sensor probe and replace if necessary. If oven is
    overheating, disconnect power. If oven continues to overheat when
    the power is reapplied, replace EOC. Severe overheating may require
    the entire oven to be replaced, should damage be extensive.
    3. Replace EOC.
    Check resistance at room temperature, if less than 500 ohms, replace
    Temperature (°F) Resistance (ohms)
