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.

Oven is on and won't turn off. Fuction code "F1" is displayed. Have to shut power at circuit breaker???


If oven is electronic /gas keep circuit breaker off.... check and see if it is still under warranty and/or if it is a call center you can call 4 repair....also... if gas you might want to turn off gas valve in the back of oven until oven is repaired.......F1 is a error code!

Power unit down by turning off the circuit breaker(s) for one (1) minute.

Power unit up by turning on the circuit breaker(s).

Monitor the oven for one (1) minute to ensure the error code does not display again.

Verify oven operation.

My kenmore model 9114552192 drop-in oven keeps defaulting to F1


That error means either the main board is bad or the temperature sensor is bad, most commonly the temperature sensor/probe is bad and needs to be replaced. If you need detailed instructions on making this repair than visit the link below.

Hi,

"F1" code clearly indicates that main control board has failed. The possible fix for this kind of problem is you have to replace the faulty circuit board. This is the only solution and you cant repair anything else in this unit when F1 flashes.

I HAVE A GE ELECTRIC OVEN AND THE F1 CODE CAME ON OUT OF NO WHERE AND I AM UNABLE TO GET IT TO STOP. I FINALLY TURNED OFF MY CIRCUIT BREAKER TO THE RANGE HOWEVER AFTER SEVERAL MINUTES AND TURNING BACK ON...


F1 = Failed transistor in control

If code cannot be cancelled, replace the Electronic Range Control (ERC) or touch pad

You'll have to use the breaker to keep it off. The ERC is AKA the Clock.
It handles all the functions of the oven, and is a costly repair.

Usually recommended to use the $200 to upgrade to a more efficient oven with a warranty.

Fault Code F1


Frigidaire oven fault code F1 means the electronic clock control is bad and should be replaced. That is the electronic control board that shows your clock display and is also called clock or eoc, depending on your model.
