Question about Maytag MES5770 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

My range has an F1 code

Two nights ago our electricity went out. When it came back on, I didn't reset the clock. The range started beeping with a Code of F1. I could hit cancel and it would stop. I then reset the clock. It stopped beeping for a few minutes and then started again. We finally turned the breaker off. The next morning we turned the breaker back on and reset the clock on the oven. Later that day, it started beeping all over again. I have lost my book, so I really don't know what to do. The internet says that I need to replace the electronic control pad. Is there another solution before I do this?

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.

Kenmore code F1 and broil wont go off


he clock on my STOVE started flashing F1
  • 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 apx. 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 apx. 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.
Here is the part to order.

All parts come with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Whirlpool WFE381LVB gets F1 error code


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.

My gas range started beeping last night, displaying F1 in the clock area. I uplugged it and plugged it back in but it still beeped with the F1 display.


Hi westae6733,

The F1 error code description is a bad touch pad or clock (ERC). You need to replace the control board (also called ERC or clock) to fix the problem.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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.

  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.

  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!!

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).

Follow this testing procedure to confirm the damage.

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).

Maytag electric range shows F1 error message and beeps every hour or so. we've checked the fuses and they seem okay.


F1 code means a defective touchpad or membrane, usually the touch pad. Here is a simple test that you can do to determine whether the clock or the touchpad are defective when the display reads F1: Disconnect the power to the range
Gain access to the back of the ERC (clock)
Unplug the touchpad ribbon connector from the clock
Make sure everything is clear & will not short out when the power is turned back on to the range. Replace any covers removed to gain access to the ERC.
Turn the power back on to the range
Watch for the F1 and listen for the beepIf you get the F1 and beep, replace the ERC (clock)
If after approx. 60 min. you do not get the F1 fault, replace the touch pad. Note: some ranges incorporate the touchpad and the clock as one part so F1 means a bad clock control.
