The F1 error is similar to the F7 error and the fix may be similar. It indicates that the touchpanel needs to be replaced. The problem is really one where the insulation is breaking down between two sections of the ribbon cable which connects the touchpanel to the electronic control. I have solved the problem by placing slip of paper between the two secions of the ribbon cable. The slip of paper should be worked down into the slot. It will only go about 1/8". A piece of file card material works well. See attachec photo. If you have a metal touchpanel, you will also have to add slips of paper at the edges of the metal slot. __Be sure and turn off the power to the oven at your circuit breaker!____There are usually three small screws at the bottom of the touchpanel. The panel may need to be pushed upward to release it. Have a friend available to hold the panel while you work on it. Do not allow the panel to dangle by the wires.____Please let me know if this works for you or if you have any questions. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have shared this solution with over 830 folks. Most report success.

Here are the error codes for your range:
F1 Circuit board defective Replace control board F2 1. The oven temp has risen above 665F and the door is not locked or
2. The temp has risen above 965F with the door locked 1. Check oven temp in mode that failure occurred. Replace EOC (Electronic Oven Control) if above limits
2. Check 8-pin connector. Check and replace oven temperature sensor if necessary F3 Oven temperature sensor is open (above 3000 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for open wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F4 Oven temperature sensor is shorted (below 500 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for shorted wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F5 Internal watchdog circuit has detected a failure Defective EOC (Electronic Oven Control) F6 Shorted buttons Check push buttons and dome switches on control F8 Logic interrupted (lock motor switch sequence) Check door lock switches and wiring
Most likely problem is the oven temp. sensor. Should check around 1100 ohms at room temp. I would replace that first because it is the easiest and cheaper than an oven control.
