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.

SmartSet control has malfunctioned and oven stopped working


The best way to reset the control is to unplug the unit from all power sources. Let is set for about 30 minutes to an hour. And then plug it back in. If you still have the same problem you are most likely going to have to replace some electronics.

Cant clear code or use oven after small power surge - stove top still works. GE web site does not have a F81 code they have an F8 and F1 which both say problem with keypad and electronic control needs to...


You didn't post model, but with a surge you probably looking at replacing the ERC. Does the manual say to unplug to reset, or check again on reset the control.

Some have this for reset, can't hurt to try.

  • Press the BAKEand BROIL HI/LO pads at the same time for 3-5 seconds until the display shows SF.

  • Press the COOKTIME and BROIL HI/LO button (on some models press Broil only, refer to your use and care manual). The display should show C. Press the button again until F shows in the display.

  • Press START to complete the change.
  • If this clears control, do it again to reset to Fahrenheit.

    This way actually resets for a error also besides temp.

    Oven went out with a pop


    Did someone bump the self-cleaning lock lever? If you have one, make sure it is all the way over to the right. Try resetting the unit by tripping the breaker. Leave it off for 30 secs min and turn it back on. See if that works. If not, let us know and we'll help you further.

    Electric Dbl Wall Oven-loud popping noise at end of self clean


    Bill ,i dont suspect the control unit is the problem im going back to the loud pop you heard I would say the pop you heard was one of the elemants blowing and that the reason the the breaker tripped if you say the clock,timer and light functon are ok it more so points to an elemant in most cases when an elemant blows it breaks the circuit .but the other componants also work when you reset the breaker i think in this case bill i would call a electrician it needs testing,sorry i could not help this time bill,but do not hesatate to contact me if i can help you again.adrian

    Frigidaire code F1


    Rainbow, F1 could be one of three things. The loud pop doesn't sound good. 1. Shorted keypad-replace the control. 2. The control sensed a runaway oven temp. In this case you would have to ohm out the temp probe. 3. The control itself may have a shorted relay-replace the control. The temp probe should ohm at approx 1100 ohms at room temp. Unplug the oven for one minute, if the code returns, first ohm the temp sensor (probe) if that checks ok, replace the control..Catriver
