I recently purchased a used Magic Chef Stove/Oven -- glass

This answer was rated:

I recently purchased a used Magic Chef Stove/Oven -- glass top
Model #: 3868XRA-X
Serial #: 12C321271632

My problem is that it intermittently starts beeping. While it beeps it flashes "F-1" on the digital screen. The oven and stove still work during the beeping, but it is a real annoyance to hear the beeping. It will beep even if the oven/stove is not being used.

Do you know how to resolve this issue?
I am unable to contact the original owner.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Sincerely,
Yvonne Berry

sorry to but in but it could be the touchpad look here

 

F1 1. Watchdog on board
2. Touch membrane defective
To determine which component is at fault, disconnect ribbon strip. If NO fault code, replace membrane, otherwise replace board

 

 

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 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.

Warning: If you do not feel comfortable doing this test or making this repair please contact a qualified appliance repair technician
