Question about Magic Chef Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a Magic Chef gas range/oven/stove model #3468VTV. Fault code F1 apprears and the range continually beeps. According to the Manual it states F1: Condition: touchpad membrane defective or clock (ERC) is defective. What to fix: to determine which component is at fault, disconnect ribbon strip. If NO fault code is displayed replace the membrane, otherwise replace the clock essembly (ERC). I do not understand how to disconnect the ribbon strip? What is this? Do I need a service technition to view item? Would it be more cost effective to purchase new appliance? this one was purchased in 1994.

UNPLUG...Then you need to open the control panel and there is a ribbon cable you remove from the main control board then plug the unit back in to see if the F1 is gone if so you need to replace the Touch pad

The oven on my magic chef range does not work..broiler and burners ok ,,,get a F1 code and beeping noise ...model number 3488VTV


Hi hockeyhoskin,

F1 error indicates a bad touch pad or clock (ERC). To fix this error code, replace touch pad or clock (ERC). Touch pad is a more common problem.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

"F1" error code on Magic Chef gas range Model 3488XRA


I'm not sure how to fix this, but my mom's magic chef has been doing this for close to 10 years. She's managed it by plugging a power strip into the wall outlet and plugging the stove into the power strip. Then she can just turn on the strip when she needs to use the oven. It only requires moving the unit once, and is easy for the technological/ home repair novice.

Have a magic chef oven, f1 display after self cleaning, stove top works fine, any thoughts


F-1 is a fault code.


Disconnect the power plug or turn range power off at circuit breaker. Wait a couple of minutes, then plug the range in or flip the range circuit breaker to ON.


Oven control beeps & displays any F  code error (for example 
F11) - Electronic control has detected a fault condition. Press 
CLEAR/OFF to clear the display & stop beeping. Reprogram 
oven. If fault recurs, record fault number. Press CLEAR/OFF
contact an authorized service agent.
