Re: it shows a code F1

It means the worse. It is the watchdog circuit (tells what the ovens doing at the time) in the ERC (Electronic Range Control) which is the circuit board. It calls to replace both the circuit board and the touchpad. You're looking at about 100 -150 bucks. Sorry.

F1 code

Most F1 error codes refer to a communication error in the main control board/ clock on some there are reset overload switches that if tripped show as a push button that is pushed outward that you can reset. This also mainly depends on which type of oven that you do have and you would have to provide the make and the model number of the unit in order for me to give you an exact solution to your f1 error instead of a generalized one. Sometimes also you can turn off the power at your electrical breaker for 7 minutes which this causes the control to reset in some. Most of the time in most models though the F1 refers to having to replace the electronic control module (ECM. If you have any further questions or wish for me to look up the exact error for your unit message me back your make and model number and I will give further diagnosis on your unit. Thank you again

Have problem with Maytag CWE 9000 the beeper keeps going off even after you press cancel Code is F1, any idea

likely the problem is a bad control board, aka a clock/timer. Usually F1 error codes do refer to main board or main control error in which you would have to replace the control. You can also try shutting off the breaker for 7 minutes which sometimes does make the control reset but this only works maybe 10 percent of the time due to the F1 error code. If you need the part number of the control message me back your full model number and serial number as well.
Thank you

I had the oven on 350 for 45 min. baking potatoes and then the oven beeped twice and F1 showed up on the screen where it had said 350 so I turned the oven off and the time then showed on the screen. ...

The manual says error code "F1" means a problem occurred in the circuitry and suggests pressing "CLEAR" to reset it. If the problem persists, contact a repair guy.
See page 19:
"This oven is equipped with a state of the art electronic oven control. Among its many features is a full time oven circuit diagnostics system. The control constantly monitors its internal circuitry as well as several crucial oven circuits to insure they are all operating correctly. If at any time one of these systems fails, the control will immediately stop operation, and beep continuously (flashing an error code of F1, F3 or F9 in the display window, if equipped). Electronic control has detected a fault condition. Press CLEAR to clear the display and stop the beeping. Reprogram oven. If fault recurs, record fault number, press CLEAR and contact an authorized servicer."

Error code -F1- and broken glass door in lower oven

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.

My Whirlpoolis showing F-1 Error of the LCD display? What can I do?

F1 code on your oven means "Electronic control malfunction". Clean contacts and reconnect all wires on the control board. If it does not help - replace oven control board. You'll also need to program the oven cavity size in the new control board. Model number is incomplete, so can't tell the part number, can be either 8301919 or 8301345

Oven show f1

This is a common problem, quite often due to either the keypad or control board. You need to specify the model number for more details. If it is the control board, we rebuild these at

Top burner is stuck on and F1 showed on the display

Hi Krista,

Unfortunately, F1 is a fault code for a failed electronic control... it'll have to be replaced. The reason the burner is on is that the relay controlling it has welded closed allowing power to the burner full time.

If you choose to repair this yourself, could you provide the model number? That way, I could pull up schematics and stuff I need to further help you.

What country are you in. This model does not show up in Kenmore USA
Perhaps you gave me the serial number by mistake, rather than the model number?

My kenmore oven is beeping and will not stop. the display shows F-1.

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 replacment 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 checksum error.
Runaway Temp = Replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

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