Question about Ovens
Try to use the oven and after trying to preheat the oven beeps continuously and F1 flashes one time.
The F1 error is similar to the F7 error and the fix may be similar. It indicates that the touchpanel needs to be replaced. The problem is really one where the insulation is breaking down between two sections of the ribbon cable which connects the touchpanel to the electronic control. I have solved the problem by placing slip of paper between the two secions of the ribbon cable. The slip of paper should be worked down into the slot. It will only go about 1/8". A piece of file card material works well. See attachec photo. If you have a metal touchpanel, you will also have to add slips of paper at the edges of the metal slot. __Be sure and turn off the power to the oven at your circuit breaker!____There are usually three small screws at the bottom of the touchpanel. The panel may need to be pushed upward to release it. Have a friend available to hold the panel while you work on it. Do not allow the panel to dangle by the wires.____Please let me know if this works for you or if you have any questions. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have shared this solution with over 830 folks. Most report success.

Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems to be an oven temperature sensor circuit failure. To resolve this issue you'll have to check the oven temp. sensor circuit if the reading is more then 1100ohms then it should be replaced however, if the rating is fine then it is the electronic control that has gone bad & should be replaced. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

An F1 is typically a shorted transistor in the electronic control, but can also be a touchpad failure or a sensor short.
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.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
