Type -C- and -D- Clocks Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes
Failure Code Condition Check/Repair
F1 Defective touch pad or membrane Replace touch pad or membrane (usually the touch pad)*
F1 Watchdog on board Replace touch pad or clock assembly (also called the ERC)
F2 Oven too hot Replace relay board (if present) or bad oven temperature sensor
F3 or F4 Open or shorted oven temperature sensor Replace oven temperature sensor
F5 Hardware and watchdog circuits disagree Replace clock assembly (also called the 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 clock assembly (also called the ERC)
F9 Door latch supervisory Check door lock circuit or replace clock assembly (also called the ERC)
F0 Function key stuck Replace touch pad or clock assembly (also called the ERC)

* 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 1/2-; 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 =Replace lid lock switch or control board. bad clock control.

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