SOURCE: Stove keeps shutting off by itself

HI I have a different brand, but this same thing was happening to our oven, I had to have a repairman replace the temperature sensor in the oven. Apparently it was reading the temperature as like 300 degrees higher than it actually was so it was shutting off (I guess as a safety mechanism). Hope this helps. Good luck.

SOURCE: Maytag Gemini Electric stove fault code F 1-2 when using the oven(s)

The oven temp sensor has gone bad.  F1-2 would be for the lower oven and F1-1 would mean the upper oven.  If you give me the model # from the sticker on the oven I can direct you to a diagram, part #, and price.  These are very easy to replace.  Should be located inside the oven in the upper right or left hand side.  It looks like a silver rod about 4-8 inches long and crimped on the end.  Most of them can be removed from inside the oven by removing the two screws, pull out the sensor (harness and all) plug in the new sensor, put the screws back in and your done.  Some have to be removed from the back of the oven by removing the lower, larger back panel and follow the same process as mentioned above.  Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Maytag Gemini Electric stove fault code F 1-2 when using the oven(s)

I own the magtag gemini model MER 6770 AAW serial number 14882525YB the message I am getting from the panel is F 1-2 then it beeps until I cancel then sometimes it returns beeping. Sometimes the top oven cooks fine but if I try to cook with both ovens going it goes all crazy with beeps and shuts off and sometimes won't go over 100 degrees in both ovens. I am a very handy person and if someone can tell me how and what to replace I know I could do it. The repair center said it could be $300 plus to repair. My stove is 8 years old and I paid around $1300 for it I can't afford to replace it. HELP if it is out there otherwise I guess I will have to pay to repair it still cheaper then buying a new one...

SOURCE: F1 fault code

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.

Tv shut down about 2 seconds after it turn on


Short circuit protection. The power supply regulator section to your TV is working properly, but after the power supply starts on, it detects a short circuit, by any of the main board section circuit. Your TV need a thorough checkup. Contact any service technician. This is not a user repairable fault. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

How do i cancel f-1 on my jvc vcr


F1 is a fault code. When the unit initialises, it spins motors and self tests. If it detects a fault it displays F1 and shuts down operations.
Needs to go to a service centre for repair, sorry.

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: http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/Springfield/316257104en.pdf
"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."

My guess is that you have either a bad contact in the wiring or the ECM detects a fault and prevents the engine from starting. The only way to know for sure (apart checking the entire wire loom starting with the key switch) is to have the error code read. Do that ASAP, running the engine with a fault can't be very good for it.

My plasma turns itself off for about 10 20 mins


It seems that your unit has some sort of Thermal PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur. After it shuts down and the faulty component(s) cool down, it restarts again until it once again goes critical and shuts down again only to repeat the cyle.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.

Wont start mornings when warm starts good for a few times then wont again an also got i think engine management light come on in the dash when runing it comes on an off about half an hour apart


hi you need to get a reading off a fault code reader to find out what is causing the light to come on the engine manament light works off detecting not an individual fault it has to recieve this fault on 3-4 occassions before the light comes on if it doesn,t recieve a fault reading in a certain period of time it will presume the faults been fixed and the light goes out but 30 min period seems not enough time to for a reset the fault code reader should be able to store the fault code even ifs its not happening at the time but would be better if you can get the reading while the light is on yates210456

Whirlpool gu2400 clean light is blinking 7 times


Yes this is a heater fault detection error. The unit may not be heating the water resulting in unsanitary dishes so the unit shuts down in this fault. Also the door may not have completely shut resulting in the heater not working, but everything else does (the heater common line is broken at the door switch. Clear the fault by entering diagnostics with this key dance heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal. All the leds will light, you can then press cancel and try another wash cycle. If fault occurs again, you must repair heater problem.
