Fan/stove light switch broke needs replacing
The original fan switch for the SEG196 (circa 1995) is a four terminal switch- two for the fan and two for the light . Note that the switch spade lugs for the red and blue wires (which when connected activate the fan) are larger than those for the white and brown wires (which when connected activate the oven light). This design presumably prevented miswiring of the switch at original assembly. Since the four terminal switch is nearly impossible to find (it was discontinued several years ago), an inexpensive fix is to replace the four wire switch with a two wire SPST toggle switch. However, this means that either the fan function or the light function can be preserved- not both. I elected to keep the fan function, and simply wired the red & blue wires to the two terminals of a heavy duty replacement SPST toggle switch. Be sure to fully insulate the remaining (in this case) white and brown wires with electrical tape or wire nuts before tucking them below the new switch. Total cost: $6.00 for switch. NOTE: TURN OFF POWER TO RANGE AT ELECTRICAL PANEL BEFORE ATTEMPTING REPAIR!

I had a tech come out and look at mine and he told me that the F1-8 means a faulty touchpad. He wanted nearly $600 to fix it. I had already taken mine apart and put it back together so I knew it wasn't a really tough fix. A little challenging but possible for anyone that is a handyman or woman. I found the touch pad online for $230 and just completed a successful installation in about 1 hour. Unfortunately, the repairman said that you have to purchase the entire front piece - the metal panel where the touchpad is imbedded. Once I removed the panel, I pulled the touchpad off and it had a price tage of $26 and a part number, so now i'm looking online to see if you can purchase just the touchpad. At any rate, even if the touchpad can be purchased separately, you still have to remove the front panel to install it so that you can plug the ribbon cable in.

I have model seg 196.
The burner in the oven that has the fan going on is leaking. May be a small leak but a leak nevertheless. So please have its gas pipe removed and replaced soonest. Then the has smell and the fan running on its own will cease.
