Hi, I'm having an error code on my oven, F1. I've read the other posts and would like to know where I could get the sensor from, if it is indeed the sensor. Thanks.

Hi,
The F1 usually means a problem with the keypad, not a sensor. You might want to try my fix for a similar problem with an F7 error message.
You can find my fix on this web site at:

http://www.fixya.com/howto/h155060-dreaded_f7_error

I have shared my fix with over 1500 folks and most report success. I hope that it works for you too. Please let me know at:

Also, what is your model number, how old is your oven and where are you located? I am making a statistical study of this problem.

Regards,
Powerman

F1 error code Kenmore Elite oven I have no owners manual.


Hi.

F1 means defective control module. On manual it will be: "Electronic oven control failure"

From manual:"Replace electronic oven control (also called EOC or clock)."

Try disconnecting power cord or tripping the circuit breaker for a couple of minutes. If the error comes back you will need to replace the oven control module.

Regards.

Kenmore oven giving F1 error code. Oven not working, but stove is working.


The "F1" fault code indicates one of the following possible failures:

  1. Shorted keypad which is part of the Electronic Oven Control (EOC)
  2. Failed Electronic Oven Control (EOC)
  3. Oven temperature sensor is bad (this is located inside the oven cavity at the upper left rear corner). The oven sensor should be disconnected and tested for resistance and compared with the "RTD" scale.

My oven when turned on goes to F1 and the heat is like broil...only the top burner comes on????


Hello,Please use the chart to determine which stove you have. You will have to look at the model number. The first 3 numbers will be the series on the chart. In most cases an F1 error would require replacement of the electronic control. This part is commonly refered to as an EOC or ERC. However this type of repair is usually reserved for repair specialists.

KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes – 362 Series (General Electric)
F1 = Stuck Touch Pad Key - Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE - 911 Series (General Electric/Roper)
F0-F1-FF = Failed transistor in Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes- 665 Series (Whirlpool)
F1-E0 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E1 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E2 U/L ERC Errors - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E3 Fuel Type Fail

Kill power 30 seconds-Cancel-Start/Enter-5 seconds-Should see “E” for electric-
“9” for gas-If code changes again-replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE - 790 Series Electronic Oven Control (Frigidaire)
F1 = Shorted Touch Pad = Electronic Range Control (EOC) Internal check sum error.
Runaway Temp = Replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

Kill power 30 seconds - if error returns - replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

Thanks

E1-F1 error on Kenmore Range


A persistant F1 error code usually means that the oven has exceeded the safe maximum operating temperature for the oven.

This is usually due to a faulty oven thermostat unit.

If the error code reappears after using the oven you should get the thermostat replaced.

Says f1


F1 error code usually means that the oven temperature has exceeded 590 degrees. Usually this means that the oven temperature contol sensor ( or thermostat) has failed allowing the heating element to overheat the oven.

To correct this you will need to fit a new sensor. Sometimes the error code can mean a temporary glitch which may be cured by turning off the power for 30 mins and then resetting but if the problem persists then a new sensor is the answer.

The F1 error message usually means a short somewhere in the touch panel keyboard. There has been a rash of problems with keyboards. Most of the time there is a simple fix that can be used. Please see my post of April 14, 2007 in response to the problem posted by OVENMAN on April 12, 2007. There you will find a suggested solution which has helped hundreds of folks who have had error messages with GE and Kenmore ovens. If this fix doesn't work, you will need a replacement touch panel. There is no practical way to repair the keyboard in ovens.
