Question about Ovens
My oven keeps beeping and giving me an F1 error code. This, first, happened, after self-cleaning, a year or so ago. Now, it occurs, for no reason, when I preheat my oven, when I'm in the middle of cooking, and just about any time it feels like it,. Help, please!!
I had the same problem with a Wolf L-Series double wall oven (Model DO30) and called for service (under extended warranty contract). The tech told me that the F1 error is a latch problem (you know the one that grabs and locks the door during self-clean cycles). He cleared the error using a series of "secret" button presses on the control panel and the problem cleared. Now, when it happens (which isn't very frequently), I do the same thing he did ... press "0" and "Temperature" for the oven causing the problem and hold them for about 5 seconds. The oven will ding and the display will show some diagnostics, including the error event. Press "Cook Time" and "Stop Time" while in this diagnostic mode to clear the error register, then press "Off". I've also tried to keep the area across the top of the oven opening clean (with a little degreaser), especially around the latch, and I've sprayed a bit of WD-40 into the latch periodically for lubrication and cleaning.

All - Thank you for the post to the resolution to this problem. We have a Wolf oven and the same thing happens, and it seems it happens every time after we self clean the oven. This resolution worked, but took us a couple tries with the solution, and then realized there is a small clarification to this that might help. In order to clear the error, you must press and hold the Cook Time and Stop Time buttons, and hold both for 5 seconds until the console beeps again. This clears the error, then press Off. Then restart the oven, and it should work ! Thanks again for the tip, this saved us another bill we can easily do without.
Here is the full Sequence Reiterated:
Press "0" and "Temperature" for the oven causing the problem and hold them for about 5 seconds (be sure its the Temp Button for the oven having the issue). The oven will ding and the display will show some diagnostics, including the error event. Press "Cook Time" and "Stop Time" while in this diagnostic mode AND HOLD for 5 SECONDs to clear the error register, then press "Off". Now your oven should work properly.

(electronic control) should be replaced to solve this issue. Hope this
