Question about Ovens

1 Answer

I have a magic chef electric smooth top range. everything works fine, but f-1 keeps appearing with the noisy beep beep beep. Press clear and it gets quiet for about a minute, then starts again! Only way to make it stop is to turn on bake or broil right after pressing clear. What do I need to do? model # 3888XRB serial # 17C343465951 . Thanks, Jason

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
The f-1 error code is a fairly common problem with these ovens
This is either a controle panel issue or even the touch pad being faulty ok
Here is the test for it to determine which one it is
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.

Oven Won't Heat To Desired Temp / Burner Quits Working Sometimes


The temperature sensor in the oven needs to be replaced. Here is the part to order. As far as the top element, lift the top up and look for lose or broken wires on the element. Keep me posted.

Am getting an "F-1" reading with a "beep"


Error code F1 means failed thermistor/transistor in control.

To resolve this issue you'll just have to replace the Electronic Range Control (ERC).


Good luck.

We have a Magic Chef glass top electric oven and the past few nights it has been beeping and showing a F-1 on stove top area


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. F1 error indicates that the touchpad membrane is defective. To resolve this issue you’ll have to disconnect the ribbon strip: after disconnecting if there is no fault code then the membrane should be replaced, if the fault code still appears then the control board should be replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

I was unable to get the full model to come up. I was able to get a Magic chef range to come up. I would replace the control and oven thermostat.

Error code F1


I had the same problem and found this post:
http://fixitnow.com/wp/2006/03/11/maytag-amana-jenn-air-and-magic-chef-range-f1-codes/

The oven had been cleaned earlier in the day and the touch pad ribbon connector was shorting. I cleaned it with rubbing alchohol and blow dried the whole board for good measure. Hooked everything back up and haven't had a problem since.
