Question about Frigidaire GLEF396 Electric Kitchen Range

F1 fault when oven is just sitting.

The oven comes up with a f1 fault when not being used. I can reset it and it is fine. Then all of a sudden. Maybe 3 days in the middle of the night the f1 fault goes off again. The electronic oven control card had already been replaced. The oven and burners work fine when being used. The fault f1 seems to come on when it is just sitting.

There are several sufix numbers after your model number so I just picked one, They are often the same as they usually keep the same wiring harness and circuitry through out many.Here's what I've found, Electronic control has detected a fault
condition. Press CLEAR/OFF to clear the display and stop the
beeping. Reprogram oven. If fault remains, record fault number.
Press CLEAR/OFF and contact a Service Professional. See:

or choose from your complete model number:

Hello Welcome,

If you get a F1 this means Circuit board is defective.

And you need to Check or replace: the control board.
This is a job for service to be sure before you buy the control board!

Thank You Huuum.

SOURCE: Keep getting an alarm and F1 signal. I know that

Without a model number I can not be as specific as I would like. F-1 means a bad control board and or a bad key control. Most ranges have the key control made as part of the main control board. Some(possibly yours) has a key pad connected by a ribbon to the main control board.Unplug the range. Remove the control console cover to access the oven control.If it connects to the keypad by a ribbon,disconnect the ribbon and plug the range back in to power. Wait up to 1 hour. If you get no beeps and no error,replace the keypad control. If you do get beeps and or a error,replace the main control board. If you do not have a ribbon connector to the keypad you must replace the control board.

What does fault Code F1 mean


The "F1" fault code usually indicates one of the following possible failures:

Shorted keypad which is part of the Electronic Oven Control (EOC)
or a
Failed Electronic Oven Control (EOC)

Oven temperature sensor is bad (this is located inside the oven cavity at the upper left rear corner). The oven sensor should be disconnected and tested for resistance and compared with the "RTD" scale.

You can try resetting the range by disconnecting it from the outlet or switching off the circuit breaker of the home for 10-20 minutes then restore the power. If the reset doesn't work your range may have one of the above failures.

My oven when turned on goes to F1 and the heat is like broil...only the top burner comes on????


Hello,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 replacement 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 check sum error.
Runaway Temp = Replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

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

Thanks

The F1 comes on. The oven will come on by itself and the F1 Sounds.  Does this mean the oven is un-repairable?


F1 is the fault code for a bad EOC (electronic oven controller). The unit can be repaired

Code F1 on my range my oven will not turn on.


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.

Fault Code F1


Frigidaire oven fault code F1 means the electronic clock control is bad and should be replaced. That is the electronic control board that shows your clock display and is also called clock or eoc, depending on your model.
