Re: F-1 READING ON OVEN
Im not sure what f1 is. have you tried turning off the oven at your switch board for about 5 minutes and turning it on again?
let me no how that goes and in the mean time i will try to find out what f1 is

My name is peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.
You have not provided the model number which is located on a metal plate on the face of the oven when you open the door. So, I can only be general.
1.) Before you will proceed with any tests, disconnect power for at least a minute. If fault returns when power is reconnected, continue the troubleshooting. If the oven problem is intermittent you must do tests when the oven is malfunctioning.
2.) Actually there are only two major parts which, if anyone of them failed, could cause most of error codes. These parts are: Electronic Oven Control (EOC) and oven temperature sensor. Frigidaire used the name RTD sensor or RTD probe, where RTD means "Resistance Temperature Detector" instead of oven temperature sensor.
3.) If the error code shown on your oven display leads to a possible problem with oven temperature sensor, start the troubleshooting from testing the temperature sensor resistance. This part is usually located on the back wall in the upper part of the oven cavity but it can be easy tested from the EOC. Locate the two pins in the plug at the EOC that are connected to the sensor. Measure the resistance between the wires connected to these pins. The normal reading at the room temperature is supposed to be about 1100 Ohms.
4.) If the reading is incorrect, remove the sensor from the oven and check its resistance at the sensor. If the reading at the sensor is the same as reading at the EOC plug, the sensor is defective. If the reading at the sensor is correct, the wiring between the sensor and the control is defective.
Is it continues to heat up then its working fine...if it continues to heat pass 400 then your have a thermostat problem and the oven is out of control. I do believe that the display is not an actual reading of the oven temperature, instead it is a reading of where the operator has set the temperature to . I have yet to see an oven with a actual reading temperature display.
When baking or cooking common foods in your oven, it is important that the oven heats to the proper temperature. Otherwise, the food in your oven could become over- or undercooked. The electric ovens are able to be calibrated if only slightly off, however, if the temperature is 25 degrees off or more, you should replace the oven sensor. The oven sensor is the device in the oven the detects the temperature. The control board increases or decreases the oven temperature, depending on the oven sensor reading. Before calling a repair technician, attempt to calibrate your oven or change the oven sensor.
1 Turn on the oven and set the temperature to a medium-heat setting, such as 350 degrees.
2 Allow the oven to preheat and then open the door and insert the oven thermometer.
3 Allow the oven thermometer to remain in the oven for a few minutes and the look at the temperature reading, comparing it to the oven temperature setting.
4 Recalibrate the oven if the temperature is only slightly off, or replace the oven sensor if the temperature is greatly off, such as 25 degrees or more.
Calibrating the Oven
1 Turn off the oven to prior to calibrating. 2 Press and hold the "Bake" button until the calibration settings are displayed on the display.
3 Use the arrow buttons or "+" and "-" buttons to adjust the temperature the number of degrees that the oven is out of calibration.
4 Press the "Start" button to save the calibration settings.
Replacing the Oven Sensor
1 Unplug the oven from the wall or cut the power to the oven in your breaker panel.
2 Open the oven door and remove the oven racks.
3 Locate the oven sensor, located at the top-center of the rear oven wall.
4 Remove the mounting screw securing the oven sensor to the wall and then pull the oven sensor away from the wall.
5 Remove the cable connected to the terminal on the rear of the oven sensor and then discard the oven sensor.
6 Connect the cable to the terminal on the new oven sensor and then reposition the oven sensor and secure it using the mounting screw.
7 Replace the oven racks and then restore power to the oven.
This problem only means that you have a bad ERC that needs replacement. You may order the part from Sears, call them at 1-800-252-1698. Just get your model number ready and they'll help you get the new ERC. Once delivered, it goes with the instruction on how you will replace.
Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
To Adjust the Oven Temperature (do not use Bake or Broil while adjusting the oven temperature): note: Your oven control was factory set in the (Fahrenheit) °F Temperature Display Mode. To change for (Celsius) °C, see page 15. 1. Press & hold the BAKE key pad and release after the display shows the factory temperature setting of 00. note: If the oven temperature has been previously adjusted from the factory setting, the current temperature adjusted value will appear in the display instead. 2. You may increase the oven temperature in 5°F (1°C) increments with each press of the uP arroW pad to a maximum oven adjustment of +35°F (+18°C). You may also adjust the oven temperature downward in 5°F (1°C) increments with each press of the doWn arroW pad (total range of -35°F to +35°F (-18°C to +18°C). 3. If you do not want to keep the display adjustment, press the clear oFF pad before the oven control beeps. This will cancel the temperature adjustment procedure. To start this procedure over again begin with step 1 above OR; 4. If you want to keep the adjustment, wait until the oven control beeps once. 5. The oven temperature adjustment has be accepted by the oven control and the display will return to the time of day.
I tried to help you. Please help me and Rate/Vote on my response, thanks and good luck
Turn off the power to the oven. Remove the racks. Remove the BAKE element screws and carefully pull the element out. Remove the wires from the element,being careful not to let the wires fall back into the oven cavity. Use a volt meter set for continuity and touch the meter leads to the element terminals. No reading is a bad element. Replace the element. If you do get a reading,the electronic control is bad.
I have a Whirlpool 30" oven. I've noticed that it seems to be taaking longer to cook the food, so I purchased a cooking thermometer. It appears that the temperature reading on the oven display is lower than the internal readin gon the purchased oven thermometer (275 vs setting of 350). Is this most likely a bad heat sensor or could it be the bake element?
Usually this is due to a bad temperature sensor. Sometimes it's due to a control board malfunction.
If you can get an accurate measurement of the oven temperature (which is not as easy as it sounds) you can do some diagnosis from the outside:
You need an accurate thermometer or thermocouple into a DVM. Make sure there are no obstructions in the oven (baking sheets, etc). Make sure you are measuring the temperature in the center of the oven cavity.
1. If the average measured oven temperature agrees with the display, the sensor is probably ok. The controller cycles the element on and off, at a rate that results in a correct average temperature. So you have to record the thermometer reading min and max over several cycles.
2. If the sensor seems ok from #1, it can be verified by disconnecting it and measuring its resistance. Should be 1080 ohms at 70F.
3. If the sensor seems ok, but the oven temperature is erratic, then it's probably a control board issue. We repair these at www.fixyourboard.com
