F1 error code for Maytag CWE5800ACB

I am getting an error code F1 when turning this oven on. Can you identify what this code is for? I was told it was the Clock dial pad/electric control panel- are these 2 items the same? Is this something I can replace on my own if I'm somewhat handy? How would I access the area that this part is located in?

Maytag electric oven model cwe5800acb. The lower element in the upper oven will not heat up. Can the lower element be replaced without removing the oven from the wall.

Yes, replace the lower element by first turning off the circuit breaker to the oven (110V is still to half of the 220V element circuit even though the oven setting is turned off), then unscrew the two screws holding the element to the back wall of the oven, then pull the element out (may have to tug it a bit to get the connectors through the insulation), and pull the wire connector clips off the element.

When my oven almost reaches the temp during preheating, an alarm sounds and I recieve an error code F 1-2... The tech support line for Maytag(now Wirlpool)had no idea what this means and advised me to...

F1 Defective Touch Pad or Membrane Replace Touch Pad or Membrane
F2 Oven over heat defective Relay Board or (if present) or defective Sensor
never heard of an F1-2 code but they make new stuff everyday. Go to this link to get tech data: Maytag library of manuals

I get an F1 symbol on mt electric oven

The F1 error code usually means the oven temperature has exceeded the safe limit for the oven.

Usually this is an indication that the temperature sensor has failed 'on' allowing the heating element to overheat the oven.

You would need to have the temperature sensor replaced.

When the oven is turned on to preheat, the buzzer goes off and an "F1" error message is displayed and the oven turns off. The model # is MGR5750ADW. Is there something we can do to fix it?

An "F1" error code means you have a defective clock assembly (also called ERC- electronic range control). You will need to replace the clock assembly, and they are not cheap, around $200. Hope this helps you, good luck.

F1 is displayed on Maytag Electric Oven I ran the self-clean cycle on my Maytag Model MER5530 oven yesterday; before it completed F3 was displayed and beeps sounded. I pressed CANCEL, the F3...


F1 error means that you have either a bad ERC (clock) or a bad touch pad. To check these please follow these simple instructions:
  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...
thank u
rate me!!!

Error code F1

I had the same problem and found this post:

The oven had been cleaned earlier in the day and the touch pad ribbon connector was shorting. I cleaned it with rubbing alchohol and blow dried the whole board for good measure. Hooked everything back up and haven't had a problem since.
