We have only had this unit for 1 year. WE had used the oven for a party and were finished cooking, when about 30 minutes later it started beeping constantly. It also displayed an F1 code on the display. The only way to get it to stop was to turn off breaker. I turned back on after everyone left. Burners work, could reset clock, set temp, etc. But still had the constant beep. I tried holding down some keys for longer periods to see if this would trip some reset mode. It only made the door lock. I about never got it back off, but finally did. The F1 dispappeared but the beeping continues. Shut the breaker off again.

Re: F1 and constant beeping
Tul2pi, there are several things that could cause this. 1. shorted keypad. If you unplug the keypad ribbon from the board and the beeping stops it's more than likley your problem. 2. Temperature probe in the oven may have gone bad. You would have to ohm this out. At 75 degrees it should read approx. 1091 ohms. 3. Worst of all it would be a control problem itself where as you would have to replace the control board. Since you are so close to the warranty period, I would call Frigidaire at 1800-944-9044 and see if they would cover it...Catriver..post back.

I advice you to contact service if it has guarantee. This seems to be a psychological problem about your oven(!). Technical person need to do an electronic research surgery on its board to see if there is any wrong thing.
If you are having error code F1 with your Jenn-Air double wall oven this is because you have a defective touch pad or clock (ERC). 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
Warning: If you feel in any way uncomfortable performing this test or
making this repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair
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
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
I had that issue and I opened the unit and there was a fuse near where the power went in. Went to the small local hardware store and they ordered it. It was well under $5 (can't remember) but it still works over 10 years later.
If the fuse blew again I would have trashed the unit.
F1 fault code: You have either a bad ERC (clock) or a bad touch pad.
Disconnect power to stove
Gain access to the back of the clock (electronic range control or ERC).
Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide.
Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on.
Turn power back on to stove.
Watch for the F1 and listen for the beep.
If you get the F1 and beep, replace the ERC.
If after approx. 30 minutes you do NOT get the F1 and hear the beep, replace the touch pad. NOTE: Some models incorporate the touch pad and the clock as one part.
F3: Open or shorted sensor. The cancel key resets the control and stops the alarm. If fault is still present it will reactivate the alarm when the cook mode is chosen. Correction: Check sensor and wiring for shorted or open circuit.
F7 usually means a stuck key on the keypad. I've also seen it caused by a greasey buildup on the keypad connector into the control board. Try pressing each button on the keypad followed by cancel. See if the buttons are registering with the control - should get a beep or some function (execpt up/down buttons need a cook or time function enabled first). If one of the buttons seems inoperative it may be stuck, in which case you probably need a new keypad.
F1 is usually caused by a failure in the control board and is a common problem that we repair on these boards. If you shut the power off for a few minutes, turn it back on and enter a cooking mode before F1 appears (after reset is finished) then you can cook. This doesn't fix F1, just allows you to work around it in an emergency.
We'd be happy to repair your oven controller for you.
