Question about Magic Chef CGR3725 Gas Kitchen Range
Usually if the symptoms stop with the touchpad disconnected from the clock,
that touchpad is often the cause. If the error continues even with the touchpad
disconnected, the clock itself is usually at fault and will need to be replaced
to correct the problem. On some models it is not possible to disconnect the two
in which case the electronic control/clock would have to be replaced regardless.
There is a tool that allows testing of the touchpad (on models where they're separate parts) but is kind of expensive for a homeowner to purchase them self. If you contact a technician so equipped, they should be able to test the touchpad before replacing any parts.
BTW. On most models, the control keypad is only sold along with the whole control pane.
You have either a bad ERC (clock) or a bad touch pad.
1. Disconnect power to stove
2. Gain access to the back of the clock (electronic range control or ERC).
3. Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide.
4. Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on.
5. Turn power back on to stove.
6. Watch for the F1 and listen for the beep.
7. If you get the F1 and beep, replace the ERC.
8. If after approx. 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. * We have seen a few of the newer Maytag ranges with a F1 fault code and the problem was the oven temp sensor - check carefully the wires to and from the oven temp sensor!! This has been a new occurrence to us in the last 2-3 years or so
