Turned on "bake" on the oven, only the broiler went on and wouldn't turn off, got an "F 1" message, had to unplug the stove, what is the message?
the F-1 is a problem with either the touch pad (key pad) or the ERC electronic range control. .since your broil came one and wouldn't shut off your problem is the ERC.the touch pad wouldn't do that in most cases. * Here is a simple test that you can do to determine whether the clock or the touch pad 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.
