Since the oven continued to heat after you turned it off, there is likely a stuck relay on the control board. The F1 code is probably indicating that you have a runaway temperature (high out of range and increasing) in the oven. Replacing the electronic oven control board will likely fix this problem.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If you replace the control board yourself, be sure that you unplug the range or shut off the circuit breaker to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.

Reply with additional details and the full model number of your range or oven if you need more help.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

The model number is 790.95761001. We replaced the oven control board. It did not work so we requested another one. The new one was put in place and worked long enough to bake a pan of brownies. When the timer went off the oven quit working again and an F1code appeared again. This is the second part with the same result. We are at a loss.......

I see that the only control board available for this range is a rebuilt (refurbished) control board (316131601R). This is indicated by the "R" at the end of the part number. You could be having a problem with this rebuilt control board. There is a slight possibility that a bad oven temperature sensor probe is causing the F1 code. If you have a volt/ohm meter, you can check that sensor by measuring the resistance through it. The first image below shows the method for accessing this component if you see screws inside the oven cavity that secure it to the back wall. The second image shows the procedure for accessing it from the back of the range if you don't see mounting screws inside the oven cavity. UNPLUG the range and check the resistance through this component. It should measure around 1100 ohms at room temperature. If the resistance is high, then replacing this part may solve your problem. You can also measure the resistance through the connection at the control board (with the range unplugged and the sensor in place). It normally connects to the control board through violet wires. If you measure the resistance through those wires from the control board, you should also see about 1100 ohms at room temperature. If the sensor is bad, it will need to be replaced. If the circuit is bad, you may need to replace the disconnect plug with ceramic wire nuts or replace the wiring between the sensor and control board. If the resistance through the sensor circuit is okay, then you likely have another bad control board. There is a possibility that a short in the range is burning out the control boards. You may need to have a service technician physically examine the range. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.
