Question about Ovens
Now that the oven has been turned off to stop the beeping, how do I go about fixing the F1 error code and is this something that can be done without calling service??
The electronic control board will have to be replaced. You can search online or call Sears (they can order just about any type of part for any type of product for you) with a model and serial number. Generally, the electronic control board is not that difficult to replace.

Printed circuit boards are essential to modern electronics. Sometimes called printed wiring boards, they connect electronic circuit components via copper plated "wires." Older electronics used point to point wiring that required skilled labor, but printed circuit boards are assembled with automated processes.
Most printed circuit boards are made of fiberglass because it offers high strength, light weight and high resistance to leakage current, although other base materials may be used for specialized applications. A thin copper layer is deposited on one or both sides of the board and printed wires, or traces, are formed through a photo-etching process. A light sensitive chemical is applied to the metal film. A mask goes on top and it's exposed to light, chemically altering the exposed areas and allowing them to be removed.
The simplest printed circuit boards have traces on just one side with holes drilled for component mounting. Components are usually mounted on the opposite side from the traces. Leads extend through the board for soldering. Single-sided boards are easy to make, and in fact, some are home made. They're inexpensive when compared to double-sided and multilayer boards. But their low component density limits their use to simple circuits, because complex ones would be unmanageably large.
Double-sided boards have traces on both sides. This offers an advantage over single-sided boards as the design can be both more compact and more complex. Component layouts must be approached carefully to prevent capacitive coupling of high frequency signals. This occurs when two conductors are separated by a thin insulator, forming a capacitor. Radio frequency signals can cross between the conductors, degrading circuit performance or causing other failures. These boards are only marginally more difficult to manufacture than single-sided boards.
