F1 Error Code

After cleaning, the next day I received the F1 all of a sudden. I disconnected the power, pressed the cancel on the touchpad,and reset the clock. All the functions like the timer work. When I try to broil, bake or clean, It seems to try to start up, I hear a click and then I get the F1. I've replaced the oven temp sensor. Can it be something other than the ECU?

F1 generally means the touchpad or ERC (Electronic Rage Control) is bad. This is what Maytag recommends as a simple test that you can do to determine whether the clock or the touchpad are defective when the display reads F1: - Disconnect power to the range. - Gain access to the back of the ERC (electronic range control, or "clock"). - Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire about 1 ½" to 2" wide. - Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on. Replace any covers removed to gain access to the ERC. - Turn the power back on to the range. - Watch for the F-1 and listen for the beep. - If you get the F-1 and beep, replace the ERC. - If after approximately 60 Minutes you do not get the F-1 fault, replace the touch pad. NOTE: Some models incorporate the touch pad and the clock control as one part so F1 = bad clock control. I hope this may help you, but it looks like you may have an expensive repair. Double check your wiring just to be sure.

We clean are double wall oven and I can,t reset the clock.


Hi williamk77,

Your post "reset the clock" may refer to three (3) clocks in your Dacor ECS230. The first is the "Setting the Time of Day" which could be performed by pressing on the "CLOCK" touchpad. The time of day will falsh. "AM" or "PM" will be displayed and "TIME" will flash in the display. Thereafter, press the touchpad "+" or "-" until the correct time of the day is displayed and release touchpad.

The second is the "Using the Minute Timer" which is better explained at the user's manual page 6. Below is a snapshot of that part of that page.09d8cbe.jpg

d9eb87a.jpg

and the third is "Timed/Delayed Timed Cooking" likewise better explained at the user's manual (p.9). Should the manual be not readily available, it may be downloaded from here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My range has an F1 code


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.

Kenmore Gas Range model # 362.75491990 F3 error Oven will not hold temp - error message displays and beeps I Replaced the oven temp sensor same issue Is the control panel bad?


Hi,

Many models of the GE microwave have sensors that can detect humidity from the foods you are cooking. This allows the microwave to make adjustments to the power levels used to cook your food. If "Sensor Error" appears, you should either press "Clear" to cancel the mode or leave the food in the appliance longer to give the microwave more time to detect the food.

Press "Time Cook" to manually enter the time if you receive an error message when trying to use the "Sensor Reheat" mode of your GE microwave. The error message may be caused by the food item being too large or too small to detect.

these are some other code error that will help you in case of next time.

  1. Step 1 Press "Off/Cancel" (or "Cancel/Off" depending on your model) to clear the error code. Note the code if it reappears.
  2. Step 2 Replace the touchpad if the code displayed is "F0," "F7" or "F10." A function key is stuck or shorted.
  3. Step 3 Replace the touchpad or the clock (ERC) if the code "F1" is displayed. Disconnect the ribbon connector to the touchpad. If no code is displayed after an hour, replace the touchpad. If the code displays again, replace the clock.
  4. Step 4 Replace the oven temperature sensor if "F2," "F3" or "F4" is displayed. "F2" indicates the oven temperature is too hot and the oven temperature sensor is suspect. "F3" or "F4" indicates the oven temperature sensor or shorted or open.
  5. Step 5 Replace the ERC if "F5," F6" or "F8" is displayed. The ERC is the main control unit. "F5," F6" and "F8 are codes that indicate problems in the ERC functions.
  6. Step 6 Inspect the door-lock assembly and circuit if "F9" is displayed. The door must lock when the oven is in use. If the lock mechanism is not functioning or if the detection circuit is malfunctioning, the stove will display "F9."


jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); NOTE:


"F3" codes mean your oven temperature sensor has failed or shorted out. The only thing you can do is to replace the sensor.

Take care.

What is f1 code


The F1 ErrorOn a number of ranges this can mean a number of things, the most common being a failed ERC(EOC, Clock assembly)or a faulty touchpad. Firstly if you are using a recent Maytag range it may pay to test the oven sensor as described above as this may cause an F1 error if faulty (may apply to some other ranges as well) this is not a common cause but is worth discounting. To check the ERC and touchpad
  1. Disconnect the power
  2. Gain access to the back of the ERC
  3. Disconnect the ribbon cable that connects the ERC to the touchpad
  4. Check nothing will short when power is reconnected
  5. reconnect the power and switch on
  6. Watch for F1 and listen for the beep
  7. If you get the F1 and the beep this means the fault is with the ERC and it will need replacing
  8. If after 30 mins you do not see the F1 error and hear the beep, replace the touchpad

Maytag electric range shows F1 error message and beeps every hour or so. we've checked the fuses and they seem okay.


F1 code means a defective touchpad or membrane, usually the touch pad. Here is a simple test that you can do to determine whether the clock or the touchpad are defective when the display reads F1: Disconnect the power to the range
Gain access to the back of the ERC (clock)
Unplug the touchpad ribbon connector from the clock
Make sure everything is clear & will not short out when the power is turned back on to the range. Replace any covers removed to gain access to the ERC.
Turn the power back on to the range
Watch for the F1 and listen for the beepIf you get the F1 and beep, replace the ERC (clock)
If after approx. 60 min. you do not get the F1 fault, replace the touch pad. Note: some ranges incorporate the touchpad and the clock as one part so F1 means a bad clock control.

A BEEP COMES ON - F 1 READING - HAD REPAIR MAN OVER 3 TIMES- CHANGES PART KEEPS ON HAPPENING


Usually if the symptoms stop with the touchpad disconnected from the clock, that touchpad is often the cause. If the error continues even with the touchpad disconnected, the clock itself is usually at fault and will need to be replaced to correct the problem. On some models it is not possible to disconnect the two in which case the electronic control/clock would have to be replaced regardless.


There is a tool that allows testing of the touchpad (on models where they're separate parts) but is kind of expensive for a homeowner to purchase them self. If you contact a technician so equipped, they should be able to test the touchpad before replacing any parts.

BTW. On most models, the control keypad is only sold along with the whole control pane.

You have either a bad ERC (clock) or a bad touch pad.

1. Disconnect power to stove
2. Gain access to the back of the clock (electronic range control or ERC).
3. Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide.
4. Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on.
5. Turn power back on to stove.
6. Watch for the F1 and listen for the beep.
7. If you get the F1 and beep, replace the ERC.
8. 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. * We have seen a few of the newer Maytag ranges with a F1 fault code and the problem was the oven temp sensor - check carefully the wires to and from the oven temp sensor!! This has been a new occurrence to us in the last 2-3 years or so
