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.

    I have a Maytag MER5770 oven range. I accidentally activated the oven lock with the oven door in the open postion. I have an F9 code displayed. I hit the cancel button and then turned off oven at t


    I would imagine if you trick it into thinking th edoor is closed it will unlock for you. Look for the switch/button that does this and then try cancelling again

    MAYTAG GEMINI model MER6770AAW Fault code F1-L -same code for upper and lower. After reading other comments, it appears that the temp sensor(s) are bad. I need to find part #'s and cost. Thank you Pete


    Here's a late response, hopefully helpful to someone... I had the same issue with same model Maytag range. I pressed the CLEAN option on the touchpad (bottom oven) and that option seemed to work. I pressed Auto Set and I let it go through "remove oven racks" until the display panel read 100 degrees and then pressed CANCEL. About 30 seconds later, when the oven was out of "clean mode," I pressed BAKE, then Auto Set, and it's been working fine ever since...

    I'm sure the sensor needs replaced and will go permanently sooner or later, but if anyone out there gets the F1-L code but hopes to at least temporarily revive your oven maybe this will do the trick.

    Maytag oven shuts off?


    Hi. This is a possible touch pad, or EOC(Electronic Oven Control Board) failure code. The test below will help isolate the issue.

    This simple test will help determine whether the EOC (Electronic Oven 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 EOC as a single assembly, in which case this test is not necessary. Simply replace the EOC (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.
