What can I do - it's driving us crazy? Sometimes the touch pad works - sometimes it keeps beeping F1 & doesn't work. The elements are fine.

How to stop WB27K5040 from beeping F1 error code


Unfortunately, the F1 error means that either the touch pad has a short or the "clock" (electronic control unit) has failed. Sometimes the wire between the touch pad and the clock fails. To test for the exact problem, you would need to unplug the range and access the clock from the back of the range. Unplug the touch pad from the clock. Then plug in the range again. If the error does not recur, the touch pad is bad. If the F1 error and beeping repeat, the clock is bad.

GE sold the clock and touch pad as a single unit for the WB27K5040. Since this is an older model range, the replacement is not in stock. There are some places that offer to repair the clock. You'll need to remove the part (or get a service person to do it) and send it in. Your range will be unavailable for some weeks while this is attempted. Otherwise, you should replace the range when the issue becomes too frustrating.

I hope this helps.

I have a 19 year od kenmore electric stove and it keeps beeping F1. I can hit cancel and it will be od for alittle while then goes back to beeping. Any ideas?


You have either a bad ERC (clock) or a bad touch pad.

Disconnect power to stove
Gain access to the back of the clock (electronic range control or ERC).
Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire apx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide.
Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on.
Turn power back on to stove.
Watch for the F1 and listen for the beep.
If you get the F1 and beep, replace the ERC.
If after apx. 30 minutes you do NOT get the F1 and hear the beep, replace the touch pad.

NOTE: Some models incorporate the touch pad and the clock as one part.

Hope helps.

My oven keeps randomly beeping and flashing F-1 recently. When I push cancel it stops, sometimes for an hour and sometimes for a week. I have tried to reset by turing circuit on and off, but problem does...


Usually means that either the touch pad or the oven control (also called clock or ERC) is defective and needs to be replaced. If this fault code cannot be cancelled, replace the oven control (also called clock or ERC), touch pad, or both.

I have a tappan range that keeps getting F1/F3 in on the display panel.


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.
  1. Disconnect power to stove
  2. Gain access to the back of the clock (electronic range control or ERC).
  3. Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide.
  4. Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on.
  5. Turn power back on to stove.
  6. Watch for the F1 and listen for the beep.
  7. If you get the F1 and beep, replace the ERC.
  8. If after approx. 30 minutes you do NOT get the F1 and hear the beep, replace the touch pad.
    NOTE: Some models incorporate the touch pad and the clock as one part. * We have seen a few of the newer Maytag ranges with a F1 fault code and the problem was the oven temp sensor, check carefully the wires to and from the oven temp sensor!!

Hi clnee,

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.

Error code F1


Error code F1 is for a defective touch pad or membrane (usually the touch pad). In this case you will need replace touch pad or membrane. It seems that water entered the touch pad during the self cleaning process, remove the touch pad and try to dry it. Good luck !!
