Whirpool gold double over shows codes e1 f2


Ifim not mistaken its either a loose touch pad conn. or it needs a new touch pad.

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.
Try this, and you will know which one is the problem.

Oven having F11


Hello, F11 is definitely a key stuck failure and I didn't require any parts to fix this.
The cause of the problem is an over abundant use of double sided tape at the factory. I suspect that either heat or continued use of certain buttons causes the glue to weep into the button/contact pad causing the button to stick to the contact. On powering up our range showed PF and if you waited 10-15 secs without touching any keys F11 would display and and there was continuous beeping. I verified this was the case by removing the upper rear panel of the stove and disconnecting the keypad connector from the upper left of the lockout board. Then on powering up our range simply sat there showing PF. Of course you can't get past this with the keyboard disconnected anyway.
The fix--- to make repair easier I removed the glass panel to which the keypad is stuck from the range. Pull off the burner knobs and you will find plastic nuts holding the glass panel to the metal housing. Remove the plastic nuts (make sure you let the keyboard connector go first by pulling the connector lock -small tabs on either side of the keyboard ribbon - towards you about 1/8". The ribbon cable will then slide right out.) Use a razor blade to gently work your way around the plastic trim bezel and remove the bezel. The keypad actually consists of three plastic sheets sandwiched together. You only need to remove the top 2 layers. Layer 1 is the printed keypad and layer 2 is the contact pad.
You have to be careful in all this or you may crease or damage a panel. I started the edge with a razor blade and then stuck in the edge of a spatula. The idea is not to slide the spatula in but rather to insert it a small amount and lift. Slide it in a little more and lift. Just have a little patience and don't simply try and slide the spatula in or you may scrape the keypad and/or contact pad. While I suppose the more AR of us would then have to clean all the double sided tape off I simply cleaned up the keypads and matching contact pads. I stuck the whole thing back together and reattached the keyboard ribbon cable (hold it in place while pushing in the cable lock mentioned above. If you aren't too squeamish you can test the keypad while you have everything apart as follows: Connect the contact pad (this is the part with the ribbon cable attached) to the lockout board. Power up the stove. At PF touch one of the keypads to the stop/cancel contact pad. The PF should be cleared and you should be able to operate the oven by touching one of the keypads to appropriate contact pads.

Thanks

What does an F1 fault indicate


MAYTAG
Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes Failure
Code
Condition Check/Repair F1 Defective touch pad or membrane Replace touch pad or membrane (usually the touch pad)* F1 Watchdog on board Replace touch pad or clock assembly (also called the ERC) F2 Oven too hot Replace relay board (if present) or bad oven temperature sensor F3 or F4 Open or shorted oven temperature sensor Replace oven temperature sensor F5 Hardware and watchdog circuits disagree Replace clock assembly (also called the ERC) F6 Missing AC signal Check for proper voltage F7 Function key shorted or stuck button Replace touch pad or clock assembly (also called the ERC) or un-stick button F8 Analog/Digital supervisory Replace clock assembly (also called the ERC) F9 Door latch supervisory Check door lock circuit or replace clock assembly (also called the ERC) F0 Function key stuck Replace touch pad or clock assembly (also called the ERC) * 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 power to the range.
- Gain access to the back of the ERC (electronic range control, or "clock").
- Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire about 1 ½" to 2" wide.
- Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on. Replace any covers removed to gain access to the ERC.
- Turn the power back on to the range.
- Watch for the F-1 and listen for the beep.
- If you get the F-1 and beep, replace the ERC.
- If after approximately 60 Minutes you do not get the F-1 fault, replace the touch pad.

NOTE: Some models incorporate the touch pad and the clock control as one part so F1 = bad clock control.

Warning: If you do not feel comfortable doing this test or making this repair please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.
