What does E1-F1 mean on your Kenmore


Electronic control has shorted you will need to replace. Usually most times when you see an F1 code that directly refers to the control board. If you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick

Where can I get a code book for GE troubleshooting of stove. I keep getting a loud beep and a code F 1 appears. What does F1 mean


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
F1 error code in your Kenmore is displayed when the oven temperature sensor goes bad, before replacing this sensor you can check it with a voltmeter. If it reads between 1050-1100ohms then it means that the temperature sensor is fine and the electronic control board needs replacement. However, after reading your question replacing the sensor is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My kitchenaide convection oven is displaying the E1 F4 error.


KitchenAid ovens are popular for their classic design and simple user interface. When a problem occurs in the function of a KitchenAid oven, an error code will display on the clock as soon as the malfunction registers in the oven's memory. Each code corresponds to a particular type of malfunction. Most can be corrected by disconnecting the power supply for one minute and then restarting. If the code persists, either replace the indicated part or contact a service center. F0/F1
  • The F0 and F1 codes refer to electrical issues. If the code appears as only two digits, the problem is a transistor failure, so you must replace the electronic range control (ERC). If the code displays four digits, it will read F0-E0, which indicates a failure switching from analog to digital, or F1-E1, which refers to a safety flip-flop. Both problems require the replacement of the ERC.
  • F2/F3/F4
  • The F2, F3 and F4 codes refer to problems with the oven temperature sensor or the keypad. If you see the two-digit F2 code, it means your keypad has shorted and the ERC must be replaced. The four-digit F2-E0 code means that the oven temperature is too high. Test the door lock and the relay operation, and correct as necessary. A two-digit F3 code means an open temperature sensor or thermal fuse, so those parts must be replaced. A four-digit F3-E0, F3-E1, F3-E2 or F3-E3 code or a two-digit F4 code means that either the oven is registering as too hot or the temperature sensor has shorted. Either way, the oven temperature sensor must be replaced.

    F1 trouble code is flashing and BEEPING how do i get it to Quit


    You can pull the AC plug and leave it overnight; the error may be only a momentary glitch.
    If the problem persists, you may find it less costly to replace it instead of sending it for repair.
    BTW, that F1 could mean different things on different units. You gave us neither the brand nor the model number.

    F1 keeps coming up in oven mode


    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.

    hi,

    F1 usually means the board is bad. this may be different but I would call back the repair company that replaced the board.
