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.

I cant get my stove to stop beeping. f1 error


You need to get the exact model number and make of this stove. Get ready for a bad circuit board to be the culprit, because electronic stoves are pretty much unfixable by mechanical means and the problem usually comes from a bad capacitor, corroded or overheated circuit board.

When you get your model number and make, go to YouTube and just type in your model stove and ask "how to repair a F1 error code on a blah blah stove". There are so many video's there on how to repair things with actual instructions and pictures. It's great.

I have a 19 year od kenmore electric stove and it keeps beeping F1. I can hit cancel and it will be od for alittle while then goes back to beeping. Any ideas?


You have either a bad ERC (clock) or a bad touch pad.

Disconnect power to stove
Gain access to the back of the clock (electronic range control or ERC).
Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire apx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide.
Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on.
Turn power back on to stove.
Watch for the F1 and listen for the beep.
If you get the F1 and beep, replace the ERC.
If after apx. 30 minutes you do NOT get the F1 and hear the beep, replace the touch pad.

NOTE: Some models incorporate the touch pad and the clock as one part.

Hope helps.

Getting beeps and f1 error code after canceling cleaning mode a little early.


Hi dear.According to your explanation,Getting beeps & F1 code meaning: F1
Supervisory 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.
Usually a bad touch pad or clock assembly (also called the ERC). Replace touchpad or ERC
I hope that helps.Thanks.

My stove has F1 on the screen,and i beeping. I


Sorry it can not be reset.
The F1 code is a failed electronic control. The clock/oven control must be replaced.

The stove just says F1 and beeps won't let me do


Hello with the limited information and no make or model I can only give a generic response to this one. Most manufacturers F1 code indicates a bad control board (EOC) and or a bad touch-pad. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Mike

F1 llight on, oven locked, stove beeps every few seconds


My stove did the same thing after I cleaned it. I had to have the sensor replaced. That is what the F1 code is.
