Question about Kenmore 30172 / 30174 / 30179 Gas Single Oven

1 Answer

Kenmore electric oven 337098

After baking, when I press the cancel button, the tone starts beeping, short beeps, and an F1 signal appears. I hit cancel again and it stops, but it starts again within another minute. This continues until I disconnect the electricity. This problem does not occur every time I use the oven.

    I have a 6-year-old Kenmore Electric Range Oven that periodically ( out of the blue -- when in use) flashes F1 and continually raises in temperature -- to a very high degree. Just how hot, I don't know, because we always hit the circuit breaker to cut the power. This has happened a few times in the past 2 years and each time we hope and assume it will not happen again. I would think that these appliances would have some kind of built-in fire prevention system to just shut off in a case like this -- so that a fire is not caused. Any suggestions, besides get a new range before my house burns down?

I'm getting a constant beeping sound and a F1

The F1 error code means that the computer thinks a button on the touchpad is stuck. Sometimes this can be resolved by making sure the touchpad connector fits tight into the control board. The F1 code can be cleared by pushing CANCEL/OFF. If it returns the touchpad needs to be replaced

The stove just says F1 and beeps won't let me do

Hello with the limited information and no make or model I can only give a generic response to this one. Most manufacturers F1 code indicates a bad control board (EOC) and or a bad touch-pad. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Mike

Dacor oven beeps and shows F1 code

-F1- Alarm “System Watchdog Circuit”
The system will detect a failure in the internal watchdog element relay circuits and will activate a
cancel feature. F1 will be displayed in the time digits and will beep until the cancel button or another
function is selected. An F1 failure could be detected in cook or time of day mode. With an F1 failure
the ERC is picking up a command to supply heat without receiving an input from the membrane. The
watch dog circuit is designed to prevent this.
If the beep continues after pressing cancel check the main control (ERC)
