I was cooking on the stovetop this morning when the thing starts beeping like the timer is going off... but the display says "F1". Even when the beeping stops, the only way to get the clock to show back up again is to lock then unlock the oven. But the oven won't even come on! I can't set the timer, or the clock either. Seems the whole control panel is out of whack. If I leave the F1 warning on the screen,it won't beep anymore, but as soon as I get the clock to show back up, it starts beeping F1 again! Help!!

Hello there: Here is the code and what it means read the code i have provided and what needs to be donte to repair it ok but first here is a thing you can try first unplugthe oven for 1 hr to let the internal memory module reset itself then try it again if you get the same code than here is what is wrong
relay enable shorted (non-cook mode); sounds alarm and inhibits
cook mode if alarm fault monitor is always active in non-cook
mode, and requires removal of power until serviced.
bad touch pad or clock assembly (also called the ERC). Replace
touchpad or ERCplease keep me posted on how this is going so i can assist you more if you need to get parts or some thing else ok Best regards Mike
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.

F1-E1 - EEPROM Checksum Error - Disconnect power for at least 30 seconds and then reconnect. Allow at least a minute after power has been restored and if error code reappears, replace control board (clock).

That error means the main control board has a internal failure. The board will have to replaced to fix that issue. If you need detailed repair help with that visit the link below: Appliance Repair Help With Live Chat
