That is a bad sensor code you can ohm the sensor if you have an ohm meter it should be 1050 to 1110 if tested at room temp,You'll find the sensor in the upper left corner of the oven looks like chrome rod coming from the wall.

The F1 alarm is beeping.....what does this mean? Thank you!


The "F1" fault code implies a faulty oven temperature sensor. In order to diagnose which will require disconnecting the oven temperature sensor from inside the oven cavity and measuring the resistance using an ohm meter. The oven temperature sensor probe should measure approximately 1100 ohms at room temperature.
Here is the temp. sensor to order.

I'm not even using my oven and the F2 alarm keeps sounding every minutes. What is wrong?


First, check the oven sensor and see if it reads 1080 ohms @ 77 degrees F or close to that at room temp. Post back your results.

Oven will not work.


This is what GE recommends for your oven:

“F—and a number or On models with a door latch, • The latch may have been moved, even if only slightly,
letter” flash in the display if a function error code appears from the locked position. Make sure the latch is moved
during the self-cleaning cycle, to the right as far as it will go.
check the oven door latch.
You have a function error code. • Touch the Clear/Off pad. Allow the oven to cool for
one hour. Put the oven back into operation.
If the function code repeats. • Disconnect all power to the range for 5 minutes
and then reconnect power. If the function error
code repeats, call for service.

What does the F3-1 code on a Maytag flat top double oven range mean?


Hi there,

Well error F3 means open or shorted sensor. The cancel key resets the control and stops the alarm. If fault is still present it will reactivate the alarm when the cook mode is chosen. The error F3-1 indicates problem with Sensor of upper oven
Solution - Check sensor and wiring for shorted or open circuit. you need a multimeter to check them. Please post comments for further help or information........

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

F1 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 cancelled, replace the oven control (also called clock or ERC), touch pad, or both.
