I had a repairman recommend the following parts for replacement:
Both door hinges
He stated that the door hinges wore out creating a gap at the top of the door (door would not close properly). Heat from the oven penetrated the circuitry which lies just above the door gap, behind the panel display, and caused failure.
Can you specify the part numbers for me and step by step on how to replace the parts? I guess a costing of these parts will help me make the repair or replace decision.

You need a control board replacement. This will require taking the panel off, just be sure to kill the power and replace wire for wire. Its fairly easy once you have the panel off. Just reassemble in reverse order.
The "F1" error code description is a System Watchdog Circuit. Please press "CANCEL", if beeping continues after 30 seconds, please check the main control board(ERC). Here are basic test that will help you to determine if the ERC or touchpad is defective.
1. Unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker.
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 code comes back.
7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.
This is one of the hardest stoves to get into. Turn off the breaker.
Pull off the burner knobs. This should reveal four large plastic nuts holding the console in place. You can turn them gently with channel locks straight on - not from the side. After you've got the console loose, everything else is downhill. There's lots of screws behind console, and across the bottom of the console (just above the door.) Remove just the ones you need, or face the wrath of Dacor!
Be careful about the rubber strip across the top of the console. It often stretches during a repair. You might have to cut off 1/4 to 1/2 in to get it to fit again.
The large plastic nuts are very east to get cross threaded when replacing them. I recommend turning them counterclockwise until you can feel the threads line up.
According to GE, the F1 fault code indicates a problem with the Electronic Range Control (ERC) Board. If the fault cannot be cleared, they recommend replacing the ERC and the touchpad. Has your repair guy tried any of these ideas? Post back with your comments, please.
Sensor is about 40.00 I would recommend replacing it yourself. Part number is 12001656 google the part number for places to purchase it. If you use maytag you will pay through the nose!! I have payed twice now! Control panel is part number 74006213 that runs about 200.00 to 290.00 that is probably not your problem, you just had another bad sensor installed. Maytag doesnt care, they already got you when you bought it!
