Kenmore F1 Code


I have a Kenmore model #: 790.95410100 , Serial # VF12414905 and am getting the F1 code.

When I turn the power on the the oven the lower heating element will burn bright red no matter what temp the oven is on. It did this 2 years ago and I turn the breaker off and back on and it was fine. It did it out of the blue last night while making dinner. It burned dinner and no matter how many times I turn it off or on via the breaker it will still turn on that lower element and no matter which buttons you push it leaves the element on.

From what I read the ERC needs to be replaced. Does that sound right to you? Here are some pics of my stove.

Either a melted/shorted wire or bad control keeping the element on.

Kenmore F1 Code


I replaced the EOC (electronic oven control unit) and the oven temp sensor. It works like new now. Just in case anyone else has this issue: The EOC was $161.00 from a local supplier and the oven temp sensor was $26.00. You can get the EOC for $129.00 online but I needed it right away. It is easy to change. (4 phillips screws). The oven temp sensor requires you to remove the large panel on the back of the range and has 2 screws holding it in. From what I read the electronic control units break a lot. Hope this helps someone down the road.
