The code is: 'failed thermistor control' and the bad part is the 'electronic range control'. Look inside the oven door opening edge for a model number--usually an aluminum plate glued to the surface. Once you find the model number, get on the internet and search (GE mod#, part). If doing your own repair, be sure to remove power by pulling the plug or switching off the appropriate breakers.

My maytag flashes the code F1. What does that mean?


I just went through the same thing. According to what I have researched, it means a problem with the touchpad. Found out the clock/touchpad can run up to $200 to replace minus labor. I had nothing to lose so I took the back panel off the stove, took out the unit which is held with 4 screws, and used alcohol on a qtip to clean the circuit board. Mind you the stove is 15 years old and wasn't about to pay 200 dollars for a part. Put it all back together and the error code went away and the oven is now working again. It is getting me through Thanksgiving but I am buying a new stove because I don't know how long this repair will last. You have to consider the age of your range and what you are willing to pay.

Hi,

To my understanding error code F1 would indicate a faulty control board, possibly thermistor control. The only recourse is to have this replaced.

This of course would require a fair familiarity of electrical/electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and possibly a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

F1 error code and beeping on a ge doubleoven


Hello there:
How to test many brands of Ranges that are flashing a F1 fault code: You have either a bad ERC (clock) or a bad touch pad.
  1. Disconnect power to stove
  2. Gain access to the back of the clock (electronic range control or ERC).
  3. Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide.
  4. Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on.
  5. Turn power back on to stove.
  6. Watch for the F1 and listen for the beep.
  7. If you get the F1 and beep, replace the ERC.
  8. If after approx. 30 minutes you do NOT get the F1 and hear the beep, replace the touch pad.
    NOTE: Some models incorporate the touch pad and the clock as one part. * We have seen a few of the newer Maytag ranges with a F1 fault code and the problem was the oven temp sensor, check carefully the wires to and from the oven temp sensor!!

Bad electronic contral panel on Amana gas range


On the Amana: Several Ebay stores carry panels like this. Problem is, once you open electronics they usually are hard to send back.

The stove is ten years old. You'll likely spend more than it is worth finding the right part and repairing it. It might be a good time to consider buying a new stove and selling this one for parts or scrap.

Stove replacement?


All the fault codes I could find on Roper indicates that this is an Electronic Oven Control (EOC) failure. This is your clock assembly. Searspartsdirect.com carries the part for about $47. I think for that price, it may be worth the attempt to repair the range, vice replacing one at a cost of hundreds of dollars. Just type in your model number and you can locate the clock assembly under the "Backguard Section" heading as item number 17 (part number WB27M10). I hope this helps you.

Oven vent


I talked to Sears Customer Service (who seemed to have heard of the problem) and they gave me Kenmore's number. The

There is no recall for the oven, but the person on the phone told me there was a design enhancement / adjustment that would stop the condensation on the back panel. The person I spoke with at Kenmore said there was a related product bulletin SF22-727 (for model 79095412102), but that that was only available to the technicians.

However, once the back panel is melted/yellow -then I think it needs replacing and I think that part costs about 100 in addition to the design adjustment.

I decided it was cheaper to buy a newer (used) oven than have the vent fixed/panel replaced.
