About an hour after cooking with the oven the F1 code lit and beeped. If I cut the power to the unit at the circuit breaker, the code clears and the oven operates normally for cooking. When the oven is turned off (pushing the "cancel" button) the F1 failure again occurs during cool-down.

The system has detected a failure in the internal watchdog element , relay circuits and will atcivate a cancel feature. F1 will be displayed in the time digets and will beep until the cancel button or another funtion is selected. An F1 failure could be detected in cook or time of day mode. With an F1 failure the ERC is picking up a comand to supply heat without receiving an input from the membrain. The watchdog circuit is designed to prevent this. If the beep continues after pressing cancel check the main control ERC board.
The manual says error code "F1" means a problem occurred in the circuitry and suggests pressing "CLEAR" to reset it. If the problem persists, contact a repair guy.

"This oven is equipped with a state of the art electronic oven control. Among its
many features is a full time oven circuit diagnostics system. The control constantly
monitors its internal circuitry as well as several crucial oven circuits to insure they
are all operating correctly. If at any time one of these systems fails, the control will
immediately stop operation, and beep continuously (flashing an error code of F1,
F3 or F9 in the display window, if equipped). Electronic control has detected a fault
condition. Press CLEAR to clear the display and stop the beeping. Reprogram
oven. If fault recurs, record fault number, press CLEAR and contact an
"F1" code clearly indicates that main control board has failed. The possible fix for this kind of problem is you have to replace the faulty circuit board. This is the only solution and you cant repair anything else in this unit when F1 flashes.
Thank you !!
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.
Sounds like leaving the door open has possibly cooked the controller. I would try a power cycle - power off at fuse for 5 minutes, then reapply power. If this doesn't clear it, you may need a new controller for it.
Disconnect the power plug or turn range power off at circuit breaker. Wait a couple of minutes, then plug the range in or flip the range circuit breaker to ON.
Oven control beeps & displays any F code error (for example F11) - Electronic control has detected a fault condition. Press CLEAR/OFF to clear the display & stop beeping. Reprogram
oven. If fault recurs, record fault number. Press CLEAR/OFF &
contact an authorized service agent.
