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.

When I turn on the broil function in the top oven, the bake igniter glows. I checked the voltage in the wires to the broil igniter and there is 0 volts. Is this a bad component on the ECB or can the ECB be...


This is probably a problem with the wiring outside of the control. To confirm this, check for continuity on the bake and broil relays upon activation of the broil function. If the the broil relay activates and the bake relay does not then your problem lies outside off the control board. I am familiar with troubleshooting Maytag appliances as I work for a company that repairs appliance timers.

F9 Display in Model MGR5770ADB Gas cooking range


f-9 means you either have a bad door latch hinse the light staying on, or the ERC which is the oven control has a stuck relay and youd have to replace the ERC to fix it.

F1 Error Code


F1 generally means the touchpad or ERC (Electronic Rage Control) is bad. This is what Maytag recommends as a simple test that you can do to determine whether the clock or the touchpad are defective when the display reads F1: - Disconnect power to the range. - Gain access to the back of the ERC (electronic range control, or "clock"). - Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire about 1 ½" to 2" wide. - Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on. Replace any covers removed to gain access to the ERC. - Turn the power back on to the range. - Watch for the F-1 and listen for the beep. - If you get the F-1 and beep, replace the ERC. - If after approximately 60 Minutes you do not get the F-1 fault, replace the touch pad. NOTE: Some models incorporate the touch pad and the clock control as one part so F1 = bad clock control. I hope this may help you, but it looks like you may have an expensive repair. Double check your wiring just to be sure.
