Ours did that too. Grease and smoke gets in under the plastic and corrodes the circuits in the controller. At first the F1 would show up every couple weeks, then it became permanent. We did have to replace the circuit assembly. Yes make sure the vents are working, and keep the front of the panel clean.

Kenmore 790 electric range


The F1 code is a problem with the very sensitive electronic panel inside and it probably got taken out when the socket shorted out. Here is the part to order. There is a video on that same parts page to show you how to swap the board out.

Getting an F1 code on my kenmore range


F1 touch pad / ERC test This simple test will help determine whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control or Clock) or the touch pad is defective when F1 error code is present.

Note: Some models incorporate the touch pad in to the ERC as a single assembly, in which case this test is not necessary. Simply replace the ERC (Clock).

Warning: If you feel in any way uncomfortable performing this test or making this repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing.
2. Gain access inside the control panel.
3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC.
4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was.
5. Turn the power back on.
6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping sound).
7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad

Hi. this is referring to a Defective touch pad or clock (ERC). This will need to be corrected. Normally, you will need to, simply, replace the main control Board(ERC).

We have a beeping sound and an error message F1-8


The code F1-8 means you have a shorted keypad. Check to see if steam or other moisture is getting into the clock assembly. Replace the keypad if necessary.

We have an electric Kenmore Classic Grille w/downdraft vents and the F1 alarm goes off routinely. It is about 16 years old and otherwise works fine.


Your control module is overheating because of the oven just below it. Be sure to use the exhaust fan every time you turn on the oven, which helps to cool the controls.
