I was baking at 375 for 1 hour the other night and the F1 warning flashed across the screen. I opened the oven and the broiler was on high (I never turned the broiler on!) and I couldn't turn the oven off. We had to pull the breaker. The next morning, we turned the power back on and the oven broiler came on again. In about 5 minutes the F1 warning started again, we couldn't turn the oven off and again pulled the breaker. My husband is quite handy and has fixed appliances before. Some tips for where to get started would be great.

Thanks,

Erica

F1 usually indicates to Replace Electronic Range Control/Clock (ERC), however no model number is shown that I can see to tell who made this range for Sears.

I know the model number doesn't correlate with the chart you have available. However, I promise that I found it inside the door and checked it with a flashlight! I also called Sears and they acknowledged that this was a model of theirs, but the person on the phone didn't know who the maker was.

Thanks,

Erica

This is a Frigidaire range, if it is the ERC it is reference # 20 in this breakdown, part number 316222902 replaced by 316207502R.  I will go and verify the F1 for Frigidaire and re-post if it is for a different repair fault.

Frigidaire FEF355ASC - Electric Range

I am getting an instant turn on to max power of the bake element on my oven. I just plug it in and it goes to max power without touching the controls. If I adjust the temp or try to 'clear all' from the front panel, the panel responds but the oven continues heating up.

I do notice that when I plug into the receptacle I hear a faint chatter coming from the control board - probably a small relay. I can see not evidence of damaged circuitry on the control board. The temperature probe looks to be ok. There appears to be no control units (relays, thermostats, etc.) mounted elsewhere on the oven. Just the temp probe.

I have no 'F' error indications on the front panel.

Still, I think it is the control board.

This all started tonight, my wife was cooking all was going well and then the apple crumble started to burn because the oven was in runaway.

Any clues?

One of the relays on the board is stuck in the "on" or closed position. You'll need to replace the board. It's an easy job, Samurai should have a link to get the part.

Pegi,

I have a Kenmore 790.95301100 Electric Range that had the exact same problem.  Is this the same fix--changing out the board?

Thx.  I don't have my manaul and I'm having difficulty finding parts sites for Kenmore appliances.  Might you be able to tell me how to find the correct part number for this model?
