Gas or Built In

Fault Code, Condition, and What to Check

F0: Failed transistor in Electronic Range Control (ERC) - If code cannot be cancelled, replace the Electronic Range Control (ERC) or touch pad

F1: Failed transistor in Electronic Range Control (ERC) - If code cannot be cancelled, replace the Electronic Range Control (ERC) or touch pad

F2: Oven over temp - exceeded 590F with door in unlocked position or 990F with door locked - If actual temp condition occurred; look for welded relay contacts or high resistance connection or any cause in the oven temperature sensor circuit

F3: Open oven temperature sensor circuit - Measure oven temperature sensor circuit at oven temperature sensor (should be approx. 1100 ohms at room temp); check for cut or pinched wire or loss of contact

F4: Shorted oven temperature sensor circuit - Same as above; check for melted connector or both leads shorted to ground

F8: Component failure within Electronic Range Control (ERC) affecting temp processing circuits - Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC)

 

F9: Problem with door lock circuit such as pinched wire between Electronic Range Control (ERC) and door lock switch - Check wiring and test operation of switch

F1: Defective touch pad or membrane Replace touch pad or membrane (usually the touch pad) see help instructions below

F1: Watchdog on board Replace touch pad or electronic range control (ERC) see help instructions below

F2: Oven too hot Replace relay board (if present) or bad oven temperature sensor

F3: Open or shorted oven temperature sensor Replace oven temperature sensor

F4: Open or shorted oven temperature sensor Replace oven temperature sensor

F5:  Hardware and watchdog circuits disagree Replace electronic range control (ERC)

F6:  Missing AC signal Check for proper voltage

F7: Function key shorted or stuck button Replace touch pad or clock assembly (also called the ERC) or un-stick button

F8: Analog/Digital supervisory - Replace electronic range control (ERC)

F9:  Door latch supervisory  Check door lock circuit or replace electronic range control (ERC)

 

Is the Problem a Electronic Range Control (ERC) or Touchpad?

The following test will usually be sufficient to determine whether the electronic range control or the touchpad is defective when the display displays a fault code of 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 (electronic range control, or "clock"). 

- If after approximately an hour you do not get the F-1 fault, replace the touch pad. 

 

** NOTE **

 

Some models utilize an assembly that includes the both the touch pad and the clock control as one unit.  In this case the F1 fault code means a faulty ERC.
