Question about Frigidaire Kitchen Ranges
Model FGFLMC55ECC Gas range. My oven control beeps continuously at random times once every day or two. The only way I have found to silence it (other than shutting off the power) is to lock the oven door. There are no trouble codes, and everything else appears to work properly. Any ideas? This range is just a few weeks out of warranty. Thank you.

The F1 and constant beeping is an error code indicating that your electronic control board (clock/timer) is defective. The fault cannot be reset and the control board must be replaced. This can be an expensive repair if your range is no longer covered by a warranty or service plan. The cost to buy a new control board can be in the neighborhood of about $200. Sorry...but I do hope this helps you.

Here are the error codes for Dacor:
Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes Failure
Code Condition Check/Repair F0 Clock pushbutton is stuck in a depressed position Check clock buttons F1 Element relay circuit failure Control board may be bad F2 Oven temperature exceeded the clean runaway temperature (self clean only) or the cooking runaway temperature (cooking modes only) Call for service F3 Short Circuit in the oven temperature sensor Check oven temperature sensor for continuity, if no resistance (zero ohms), replace F4 Short Circuit in the oven temperature sensor Check oven temperature sensor for continuity, if no resistance (zero ohms), replace F6 Failure in the EEPROM check comparison (only time of day and timer will operate) Call for service, electronic clock control is usually the cause of the problem F7 Failure of the self- clean automatic door latch system Check door latch and switch(es) F8 Failure of the door latch motor. Occurs when the motor runs for two minutes without the door locking in self-clean mode Check door lock motor and door latch

put on tree belt . having the same problems replaced ERC $200.00 now they are telling me touch pad touch pad is $240.00 .the stove cost $1300.00. $1740.00 how much more will i have to put in this stove

f7 err code means problem with the control panel.control panel needs to be replaced.if u like u can try for a temporary fix.open up the control panel by removing screws at the bottom of the conrol panel.disconnect the ribbon connector which comes from the control panel and connects to the control board.take a piece of paper towel and clean its end and put it back.some times this works.do not forget to turn of the power b4 doing this.

Here is some wisdom for understanding F1 fault codes.
In some models, there are subcodes that make diagnosis even easier.
Here's a simple explanation of what's going on and how to troubleshoot:
The F1 code indicates that:
a. The electronic range control (ERC) is sensing heat in the oven when in a time-of-day (i.e., not cooking) mode.
b. The ERC is receiving information to run multiple heat functions simultaneously.
Although different components (depending upon the model) could generate the code, simple and straightforward testing using your ohm meter is all you gotta do to test for it.
1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor has to be within spec or it will cause the F1 code.
As an example of being out-of-spec, the ERC will generate an F1 fault code when the sensor shows 1650 ohms during a time-of-day mode.
This is equivalent to 350°F in the oven.
The resistance isn't high enough to generate an F2 code (runaway temp) or an F3 or F4 code (shorted/open sensor circuit).
The ERC monitors the sensor circuit after a heat cycle and expects the resistance to drop back to 1050-1100 ohms.
The fault code is generated when this doesn't happen. Checking the sensor circuit means also checking the harness,
harness connections and the sensor itself.
2. If the oven sensor circuit checks okay, then turn your inquisitive eyeballs to the touchpad.
If the range has a separate touchpad/keyboard, the keypad may have moisture that is shorting several circuits simultaneously.
If the F1 code is given immediately (instead of during or after a heat cycle),
remove the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the ERC after clearing the F1 code. If the F1 code does not return in five minutes,
then cast a suspicious gaze upon the touchpad/keyboard. Shorts may be caused by using an ammonia-based glass cleaner.
The touchpad surface will absorb ammonia-based cleaners that are sprayed directly on the glass surface. When heat is applied,
the surface material can break down causing shorts.
If you're gonna use ammonia-based cleaners on your control panel, then you should spray it on the rag and then wipe the touchpanel
-don't spray directly onto the surface of the touchpad.
3. On Amana ranges with a rotary temperature dial, be sure that the knob is in the OFF position when performing tests.
4. If these tests all check good, then replace the ERC.
