I'm getting a flashing F1 error code (with beep). Resetting power and even disconnecting power for a day does not fix it.
This first happened a couple of days ago while the oven was running, and the first code that showed was F7, followed by the F1 code. That was the only time F7 showed up, it's been F1 ever since.
Some web research indicates that it may be the temperature sensor or the ERC (control board?), though the F7 is typically the touchpad (which appears to be working just fine). Someone mentioned to check the resistance on the wires from the temp sensor (with high values indicating a faulty sensor), but how do I find out which wires are the correct ones? I have yet to find a diagram of the wiring.
We have a GE Profile JTP17 convection wall oven...14 years old with light use. We are getting an F1 error code and beep when the oven is NOT in use. I had to pop the breaker to stop it. I guess my question is - what does the F1 error code indicate, and how can I fix it ? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide ---- Don

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.
* ERC - Electronic Range Control
NOTE: Some models incorporate the touch pad and the clock as one part.
Error code F1 means a faulty keypad or connection problem with the keypad. You will need to check the connections of the keypad with the main board. Pressing Start/Cancel key may temporariliy resolve the issue, however, to resolve the issue you might need to change the keypad if the wiring to the keypad seems ok.
1. Disconnect power to oven. 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.
If it still shows as F1 then you'll need to replace the keypad.
If you are having error code F1 with your Jenn-Air double wall oven this is because you have a defective touch pad or clock (ERC). 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

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
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
F1-E1 - EEPROM Checksum Error - Disconnect power for at least 30 seconds and then reconnect. Allow at least a minute after power has been restored and if error code reappears, replace control board (clock).

hi, The F1 ErrorOn a number of ranges this can mean a number of things, the most common being a failed ERC(EOC, Clock assembly)or a faulty touchpad. Firstly if you are using a recent Maytag range it may pay to test the oven sensor as described above as this may cause an F1 error if faulty (may apply to some other ranges as well) this is not a common cause but is worth discounting. To check the ERC and touchpad Disconnect the power Gain access to the back of the ERC Disconnect the ribbon cable that connects the ERC to the touchpad Check nothing will short when power is reconnected reconnect the power and switch on Watch for F1 and listen for the beep If you get the F1 and the beep this means the fault is with the ERC and it will need replacing If after 30 mins you do not see the F1 error and hear the beep, replace the touchpad
