Unfortunately, the F1 error means that either the touch pad has a short or the "clock" (electronic control unit) has failed. Sometimes the wire between the touch pad and the clock fails. To test for the exact problem, you would need to unplug the range and access the clock from the back of the range. Unplug the touch pad from the clock. Then plug in the range again. If the error does not recur, the touch pad is bad. If the F1 error and beeping repeat, the clock is bad.
GE sold the clock and touch pad as a single unit for the WB27K5040. Since this is an older model range, the replacement is not in stock. There are some places that offer to repair the clock. You'll need to remove the part (or get a service person to do it) and send it in. Your range will be unavailable for some weeks while this is attempted. Otherwise, you should replace the range when the issue becomes too frustrating.
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
Hello,F1 means Stuck touch pad. Usually means that either the touch pad or the oven control (also called clock or ERC) is defective and needs to be replaced. If this fault code cannot be canceled,replace the oven control(also called clock or ERC),touch pad,or both.
The F1 usually means a problem with the touchpanel. It is also related to the F7 problem. I have developed a fix which may solve you problem. Please go to the following link for my fix.
I have shared my fix with over two thousand unhappy GE customers. Most report success. Please let me know if this works for you too. I am making a statistical study of this problem.
