F1 Error Code

Hi,

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.

Thx,
Frank 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

    fi and beeping

  • Anonymous Aug 12, 2008

    I have a JKP15 GE true temp oven (apx 9 yrs. old) and the exact same problem has recently occurred.

    Oven starts beeping when NOT even in use.

    Stops briefly when I hit reset or clear. But starts again.

    Must flip circut breaker and shut power off to silence it.



    I can turn it back on some time later and oven does initially work,

    but then as I am cooking, the F1 or F2 starts beeping again, oven shuts off. The only way to clear it/stop beeping- is to turn off power at circut breaker.

    hi i have same problem F1 code is showng up , would we have to change the whole circuit board.

  • owczarek Nov 17, 2008

    Our church has 2 of the same ovens,,, both flash the F1 code unless the oven is running. I also noticed that the temp setting is different between the two ovens. I mean I set both to 325 degree's for turkeys. It took over 5 hours to cook and then one of them had one leg / thigh that was was still almost raw on one side. At home the same size turkey is done in just over 3 hours????? Even when the door opens you can tell the temp is not the same.



    Can these be calibrated??

    I am having the exact same problem with the F1 beeping. It won't stop unless you turn off the circuit breaker. Have been reading that the control panel needs to be replaced.

Hi,
According to the GE website, F1 usually means a problem with the keypad. You might try my solution for the F7 problem which is similar in nature. Go to the following link:

What does the error code F1 E1 mean and how can i fix it


Hi.

F1 - E1 means: EEPROM Checksum error. The EEPROM is a memory chip located in the ERC (control module). The problem is communication error with the EEPROM


1. Disconnect power for at least 30 seconds.
2. Re-apply power and observe for at least one minute.
3. If code re-appears, replace control board (also called ERC or clock).

Note: Applies to all F1-Ex codes except F1-E3.

Regards.

Error Code F1 displays once in a while. What does it mean?


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.

Hope helps.

Error code F1 flashes and beeps on control panel


Hi

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.

Hope it helps...

Oven is giving a F1 code and is not working . It beeps even when it is not given a program.


Hi.

The error meaning depends on the oven brand.

On Amana and other brands F1 is a faulty control pad or faulty electronic control.
That may be your case , since the electronic control looks being jammed.

Try tripping the circuit breaker for two minutes (or disconnect power cord). If that does not help, then call the manufacturer at the number listed on the owners manual.

Note: on other brands F1 indicates incorrect temperature , and is associated with a faulty temperature sensor. This normally does not cause the electronic control beeping and not responding.

Regards.

F1 error code and constant beeping and oven shuts off.


Hi gwhiz03,

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 (Clock).

Warning: If you feel in any way uncomfortable performing this test or making this repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

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 before continuing.
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 pad.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

After a power outage oven will no longer work


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).

F1 fault code on Jenn-Air jwg 8130


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
