The oven control beeped and an F 1 (or possibly an F 10) error

Resolved Question:

The oven control beeped and an F 1 (or possibly an F 10) error came up...we turned off the oven and now when we hit 'BAKE' only the broiler elements are working...
The manual says to Reprogram the oven - there are no instructions on how to reprogram the oven.

Not sure what you are asking

If you are referring to the 'F' error - we jumped up and turned everything off pretty quick as our dinner was catching fire.

Think it was an F 10

Ok thanks you will need to do this test to see if your problem is either the control board or the touch pad. This is what the fault code means.



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.

The problem is with the Broiler coming on when we try to use the Bake option in the oven....I'm guessing I'm going to have to bring in a tech.

So when you push bake the broiler comes on instead? Is this correct? Thanks.
