heres what your code means.
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
what you need to do is unplug the ribbon to the touchpad,(ribbon shown here) Appliance Part Mouse Overright side of the clock assembly in this picture, first uplug the stove and pull it out, remove the back panel at the top where the clock assembly is and you will see the ribbon. unplug it and then plug the stove back in and wait about 10 minutes, if the F-1 reapears with the ribbon unplugged then you need a new clock (electronic range control) if it doesnt you need a new touch pad.
