I get the F1 error almost constantly on my magic chef range. It's so bad I only turn it on when I cook.
I noticed that if I turn the oven on, even to the lowest setting, the F1 error won't happen. Using the range without the oven I get the F1 every few seconds.
Would this indicate that the oven sensor may be bad and not the keypad/ERC? If it's a $40 part I may fix, but the $140 part which apparently will fail again soon probably isn't worth it.

If it's bad, replace it. Be aware that sometimes, when a sensor goes bad, it can take out the ERC, too. So, you could replace a bad sensor, thinking you solved the problem, but still have the F1.
OTOH, if the sensor tests good, then you know the problem is just a bad ERC.
